Howe: Expect Tom Brady To Play At Least One Half In Regular Season Dress Rehearsal
The third preseason game is typically the one that most resembles a regular season contest, with the starters getting the bulk of the playing time in preparation for the grueling 16-game slate.

Anyone ever notice that the backup QBs behind Tom Brady learn so much that they often turn out to be competitive enough to go on and get another starters job? Matt Cassell and Brian Hoyer fit that bill nicely.
How come none of Peyton Manning's backups never compete for a starters job? Answer, Peyton is all about himself. He does little if anything to foster improvement in his backups. He has in the past demanded that the money usually spent on the backup go to getting better receivers. The trade off of backup QB for better receivers gives him inflated stats but leaves his team without any chance when he goes down as shown in Indy.
Is it really so amazing that Tom Brady trains his backups while Peyton does not? Not really. When you realize that Brady is comfortable in his own skin and is confident that he will remain the starter because no one can out work him, it only makes good team sense that he trains then and trains them well. Meanwhile Peyton lacks the team first concept. He has always been about his own stats and has lacked a calmness and coolness that the truly greats, Mintana, Brady and Unitas possess.
The day that Peyton learns it is about winning and not the accumulation of stats is the day he will begin his trek upwards in a quest to become more like Brady. Unfortunately that day is not today. What a shame that such a great talent has lacked the proper guidance and has been allowed to remain a me first QB at the expense of all those missed opportunities.
Peyton's former owner said if he had it to do over it would not be Peyton's way but the Brady way. Jason Whitlock on ESPN acknowledged that Peyton is a media creation and hyped well beyond who he really is. Terrell Owens when asked who he would like to catch passes from said Brady.
Ray Lewis said Brady was the best because Peyton could be fooled into throwing INTs.
Bill Parcells identified Brady as the best as has football insiders, GMs, Analytical Statisticians and the more highly educated.
Peyton is entertaining and has a funny, goofy way about him and is a delight to the media which garners their support but like the politicians said...I know Tom Brady, and Peyton Manning is no Tom Brady, not even close. And it's all between the ears that makes them different.

Cassell is a backup-quality QB and Hoyer has yet to prove anything. Only loser teams such as the ones they are on would use them as starters. That Brady scrotum taint is making your little head spin.
Why does it take you 5 freaking paragraphs to say nothing?
This belch's for you.

You cite ESPN sources saying how great Brady is, then in other posts you cry about how biased ESPN is. You gotta get your split personalities to keep their BS straight.

Well said. In addition, Peyton has had better WRs, better RBs, better Oline, played in a Dome and now at Altitude for an anerobic advantage and has had a Heisman winning Pro QB dad who has been training him his whole life. These are all advantages Brady has not had and yet it is Brady who has somehow kept pace with the media hyped Peyton and has beaten him 10-5 head to head and out victories him anyway you slice it. More SB wins, More AFC Championships, more Division Championships, most NFL Post Season Wins in History and an NFL History best winning percentage. Could be why Insiders, GMs Owners, Coaches pick Brady over Manning almost 10 to 1.

Didn't realize the difference between us and the average bloke was so huge. The concept is that Brady's backups are fighting for starter jobs not that they are as good as Brady. Meanwhile Peyton's backups are bench sitters not competing for startering jobs, or out of the league because they were no good to begin with. Some of you Americans are missing the intellectual gene. You focus on a small detail to the point of missing the bigger picture. Explains a lot about why your country is so screwed up. I did say some.

Farts in space
Given the recent resurgence of interest in the cosmos, its natural for us Earthlings to worry about the safety of the men and women bravely exploring the final frontier. But are we concerned enough about space farts? The risks posed by flatulence in a confined area are more than just hot air.
Discovery desperately wants the public to be informed about the invisible risk zero-gravity gas attacks pose to astronauts. A study from 1969 entitled Intestinal hydrogen and methane of men fed space diet (clench those buttcheeks, ladies!) examines the dangers of letting one rip in an enclosed and pressurized space:
Intestinal bacteria form two gases, hydrogen (H2) and methane (CH4), that could constitute a fire hazard in a closed chamber. So H2 and CH4 pass from the anus but these gases are also transported by the blood to the lungs and removed to the atmosphere.
To discover how to prevent farty astronauts from producing large amounts of flammable gas, the researchers examined two 6-man control groups for 42 days. One group was fed an unspecified diet of space food and the other was given bland earth meals. Afterwards,
Breath and rectal gases were analyzed during the first and final weeks. Flatus gases varied widely within dietary groups but much more gas was generated with diet S than with F.
In the first 12 hours of recording data alone, subjects who were fed the 1960s version of space food produced up to 209 ml of rectal H2, which is a lot of fart juice. By measuring the amount of breath and rectal gases analyzed the team concluded that the maximum amount of rectal H2 that should be accumulated during a twelve hour period is 382 ml, but that volumes would be larger at reduced spacecraft and suit pressures.
The researchers also allowed for the psychic and somatic conditions that affect the gut, i.e., nervous farts. Although the study doesnt explain how stress levels were quantified, its a safe assumption that knowing their every butt murmur would be measured did nothing to quiet the gastronauts nerves. Regardless, perhaps the effect of mood on flammable rectal gas production explains the fire in Gravity?
Speaking of the model of international cooperation that is the ISS, an unexamined risk of space flatulence is the danger it poses to world peace. With Russia and US relations on Earth so tense, the last thing our embittered countries need is a they who smelt it dealt it controversy in orbit.

Well said. In addition, Most important scientific study ever: What about farting astronauts?
Humans produce two flammable gases: hydrogen and methane. Flammable gases accumulate in an enclosed space and can ignite. Astronauts are humans who spend lots of time in enclosed space. The logic is irrefutable. So, what's the risk to farting astronauts?
Let's go retro for this story that we at io9 somehow missed when it was originally published in 1969.(No, I don't know how it slipped through the cracks either.) Thankfully, NCBI ROFL has unearthed this gem of a paper, which explored the potential buildup of hydrogen and methane in people on a "space diet," specifically the one used on the earlier Gemini missions. Here's what they found:
Breath and rectal gases were analyzed during the first and final weeks. Flatus gases varied widely within dietary groups but much more gas was generated with diet S than with F. In the first 12-hour collection, subjects fed S passed 3 to 209 ml (ATAP) of rectal H2 (avg 52) and 24 to 156 ml (avg 69) from the lungs (assuming normal pulmonary ventilation). With F, these values were 0 to 3 ml (avg 1) and 6 to 36 ml (avg 20). Subjects were calmer during the second test. Gas production was lower with S than initially; F values were unchanged. Methane differed idiosyncratically, presumably due to differences in flora. Computed from 12-hour values, maximum potential daily H2 and CH4 are per man: for S, 730 ml and 382 ml; for F, 80 and 222 ml. Volumes would be larger at reduced spacecraft and suit pressures.
Basically, the Gemini-style diet created way more flammable gas than the bland diet, which I guess means the Gemini astronauts went to truly herculean efforts to hold it in. Considering they were sharing a tiny capsule with just one other person, that maybe isn't that hard to believe. The scientific literature remains shamefully silent (Ed: but deadly?) on whether or not these findings were incorporated into NASA's work on future missions. We will assume the danger of farting astronauts has now passed, but I fear that may only be wishful thinking.
The study, incidentally, was the work of Edwin L. Murphy and Doris H. Calloway, who was a brilliant, ground-breaking nutrionist whose work far outshone my rather juvenile fixation on its fart-related aspects.(I can't find anything on Edwin L. Murphy, but I'll assume he was a brilliant scientist as well.)

Sorry you missed the point. Only Nixon could negotiate with the Chinese because he was such an opponent to their policies. Likewise ESPN has proven time and time again that they are in Peytins corner. So when they come out and admit that Brady and not Peyton is the best ever, it carries a lot more weight. and still ESPN no names espouse Manning while the knowledgeable pick Brady.
Even Steve Young when asked if he thought he was as good as Brady said he wasn't in his class. Steve was being humble but was correct. He is not in Brady's class; he is one tier down yet one tier ahead of Peyton.
Brady, Montana, Unitas tier One (high efficiency, high stat QBs)
Young, Elway (although playing at altitude elevated stats) tier Two (combo efficiency/stat QBs)
Brees, Marino, Favre, Manning tier Three (lower efficiency, high stat QBs)

Hmmm, Im getting notes of sandalwood, rosemary and a hint of boiled cabbage But before you pack your bags and move to China to seek your fortune, you should know that its not all fun and games in the world of anal aroma analysis!
We kid you not; there are people out there being paid to smell others farts and diagnose physical health based on their various odours. And not only that, it pays well, with reports of professional fart smellers in China being paid up to US$50,000 per year.
Think youve got what it takes to hone your hooter and examine anal emissions? Read on.
According to Chinese news sources, the hottest career in health and physical well-being right now focuses entirely on analysing the smells of others rectal gas.
By picking up on traces sweet, savoury, bitter and even meaty aromas, these brave anal analyzers are allegedly able to identify illnesses and pinpoint their location in the body.
According to the smellsperts, extremely stinky farts indicate bacterial infection in the patients bowels or intestines. A raw, fishy or meaty smell, meanwhile, could point to infection in the digestive organs or even highlight the presence of bleeding or tumours in the intestinal lining. Finally, the presence of garlic or chives in our farts is thought to be an indicator that were consuming too much of the foods in question, which could ultimately result in inflammation of the small or large intestines.
But its not just the whiff of our farts that gives telltale signs about our health. The group also claims to be able to tell a lot about a persons physical wellbeing by measuring the amount of gas expelled with each fart, with enormous guffs suggesting that were consuming too much fibre and mere whispers hinting at intestinal obstruction.

Bloody hell. British inventor builds giant 'fart machine' to fire at France
Colin Furze's huge valveless jet engine, housed in a specially constructed pair of buttocks, was placed in Dover and aimed in the general direction of France.
The fart machine was aimed at France at 6pm on July 24. Furze tweeted that a faint rumble was audible over the Channel, with video footage due to be uploaded soon.

Well said. That Cypress, CA guy has quite the hard on for Brady. Whatever jingles his jewels. What a bloody fairy.

Flatulence Fred who is Lauhing Bear Fan from Denver uses multiple names and answers his own posts all the time and now has his brother in Miami as well as himself accuse others of his own actions. They are trolls at best or at worst you decide. Since their analysis has been discredited time and again they spend most of their time involved in other troll/fart/perverse activity.
They are what they are. Romans Chapter one explains their plight and will assist the reader to understand life's path. Enjoy the education.

Can't speak for everyone but most quality people like to correct false allegations. Not sure why you like to deal in falsehoods but it says a lot about you. Also makes you a troll. Then you revert to perversion which makes you a perv. Hope you have no living relatives, they would be mortified. Also hope those who are angry at you for using the term fairies rework your brain housing group. You deserve nothing less. Semper Fi and hoping you are able to put together a more rational approach to life's questions.

New Pup-Farting, Hiding Under Bed, and Jumping Help
Hey everyone, Im new here so first I would like to introduce my new devil dog Hailey. I got her about a month ago from the pound when she was about 3 months old and she is wounderful. Except...
-She farts a lot and they stink. I recently switched her dog food from Pedegree puppy(after hearing how horrible most dog foods are) to Professional dog food. The farting started with her first food but even after switching (although its only been 2 days) still continues.
-Another problem I am having with her is that at times she will go under my bed and for some reason I just do not like her under there. When I call her out she starts to get real defensive and growl. If I try to put my hand near her she even trys to snap at it. When she is not under the bed shes fine but the second she goes under she totally changes.
-Finally any suggestions on how to calm her down when, taking her out of her cage, coming home from work, or meeting new people. She always go crazy when any of these things occur and starts to jump up on people.
While writing this message she farted 3 times and almost made my eyes tear. here is the video of my farting devil dog.
