    Wheat Chex causes unbelievable gas, as does cabbage (or any other cruciferous veggie).

    Bean soup? Watch out!

    Sausage biscuits for breakfast? Air biscuits later in the morning.

    I have found that mixing certain dishes is the most fun.

    For some reason, a nice bag of popcorn followed by a steaming bowl of beefy chili (mine has pinto beans, light and dark kidney beans) a beer or two followed with ANY kind of ice cream gets things outright crass an hour or two later.

    Rats eating refuse at the city dump would look at each other and protest my presence once this combination worked it's magic on me.

    What kind of sicko are you starting some kind of thread like this?;f

    Back in the days when Block's Bagels in Columbus, OH still had one location (the original on Kellner and Broad) I went down there one morning and bought a whole bag of sesame seed-encrusted bread sticks. Warm, with cream cheese, I managed to polish off that bag by mid-morning.

    BIG MISTAKE!

    By about mid-afternoon, I felt uncomfortable and bloated. Then the gas started. THUNDEROUS. Every 30 seconds thunderous. I hobbled to the nearest pharmacy and bought a package of Gas-X and ate the entire package. ;f

    Damn sesame seeds. :(

    Here's a "old wives secret" passed on to me by my mother. When cooking a pot of beans throw in a whole carrott. As the beans cook the carrott will absorb the "gas" out of the beans. Somebody comeing to dinner you don't like? If they eat the carrott they will experience intense gas. Does it work?? I haven't eaten the carrott.

    Well after being on Atkins for a while...

    Anything with carbs...

    Pasta? Look out... Pintos? I will peel the chrome off of a trailer hitch...

    The worst yet has been soda (any kind) and bread...

    Beer........

    While I was in college and developing my palate for cheap beer, I quickly realized that large amounts of beer at night resulteed in gastrointestinal pyrotechnics the next morning. As a matter of fact, even now if things need to get moving I will drink a coupla Bud Lights and like clockwork, everything starts the next morning.

    My old lady has been on me to eat more green vegetables. I was at the store and got about 5 lbs of raw string beans. For some reason I love the things and will eat them like no tomorrow. I was sitting around puttering with something last sunday morning (pissed that there was no race) and before I knew it I'd eaten about 3 lbs of them. She was quite pleased at my "attempt to eat healthier snacks" until the artillery started coming in.

    She and the dog lay in a foxhole muttering some stuff I couldn't hear over the concussion. They were coming in about every 30 seconds and damaging furniture. I blew out windows in the next county. She said that I rolled the neighbors tractor trailer but I think that's a little much. The funny part is that there was no smell of any kind. About an hour into this 3 hour barrage, the dog starts in with the "silent but deadly" gas attack. She's trying to clean, I'm trying to help but getting shooed. The dog thinks the vacuum cleaner is the enemy. The dog and I are changing our shorts every 10 minutes and both think the whole thing is a great game. It all ended when she caught me trying to teach the dog to sit when I ripped one. Almost had it too.

    That's why I spent sunday afternoon banished to the basement with the dog, soldering things that didn't need to be soldered.
