No, but methane gas is not particularly good for you. Hazel mentioned nothing about being sprayed in the rear by it...
I think Bey-Heart deduced that the methane "sprayed him in the rear" because he read "room enough to break water suction." But, don't forget, Bey-Heart, he said that it came up in bubbles. Not shot out like a compressed air cannon.
Actually, I decided to make it a joke because two posts above it, somebody told Hazel not to die. But I didn't know it was coming up in bubbles.

Hazel, you should drop some lit matches onto those methane bubbles and let me know what happens. Methane is extremely flammable! XD

I actually addressed the possibility of explosion in my most recent post... however, the primary problem is not the risk of detonation(which, as I said, is very unlikely due to the necessary stoichiometry of it), but rather the fact that breathing anything more than a 6% concentration ratio of Methane to Oxygen will lead negative effects on the body - and as it rises above 20%, it can become potentially lethal if inhaled for too long.

It is also a horrifyingly bad smell in such concentrations.

Lighting a match while the concentration was appropriate, though, would lead to a lot of things in my room being destroyed, myself included. The backdraft alone would scorch my lungs, if the blast itself did not kill me.

Science.

Great. Now I'll never get that image outta my head... Speechless

Stay safe, Hazel!
And on today's episode of House Hunters USA...

Hazel finds a new Home!

LOL, but isn't there anything you can do to remove it?
Yes, I will physically pick up this lighter-than-air gas and throw it out of my house in buckets.

I have to wait for it to dissipate via my house's ventillation systems. Opening my door would help, in theory, but I have pets I would rather not have getting outside.
So, this "creature" (Your toilet) in your bathroom is farting out an extremely dangerous, highly explosive substance, and you have to wait on some guy to come fix it...? You think they would come over right away.... Speechless
I just realized, I have over 1000 posts. And I'm pretty sure, about 75% of them are not Beyblade related. XD

So I applied to three Toys R Us locations: one position by my school and two positions in Time Square. When I was a kid, I've always wanted to work at a Toys R Us. I kind of hope to get the job. I totally need money, and selling my manga isn't doing anything for me (because I'm not getting any buyers). But if I get the job, it'll be like a dream come true.

Come Weednesday, I'm gonna call them and bug them to check my applications.
Lol, good luck Kaji! Working at a toy store sounds like a dream come true! Tongue_out

I applied to a music store two weeks ago. I was gonna bug them last week to check my application, but the whole seizure thing happened. I'll do it this week sometime. Won't be tomorrow since I'm going to get tested for epilepsy, and it won't be Tuesday because I might be going on a date. X) I'll get to it though.
I want to be a police officer (known as gardaí here), if my scoliosis isn't cured by then, I'll probably look into an acting career.

It used to be a big dream for me until I discovered the musician in me. It'll just help me out with my hobby because I work on toy comics (click the pic in my sig lol). I needs Transformers, yo. And probably Halo. So th!nk won't say that ALL my toys are Japanese.

I wish you luck! I actually plan on switching my major from Classical Voice to Music Theater. My dream is to sing in musicals for a living. They're not constricting like classical singing, but they're not like today's pop music, either.

Jeez guy, you know I'll just say they're japanese models.

Even the halo.

It is not so urgent as you make it seem.

Working in retail is not nearly as glamorous as I think you might have the impression of... especially not a toystore.

Enjoy Christmas Rush.

Scoliosis has no cure. Management is all you can really do for it, and depending on the curviture of your spine, and the location of the cure, you should probably take a more realistic idea of things.

That said, with proper management, most scoliosis patients can live perfectly normal lives, and even be active. There are cases where it's just not feasible, but they're rarer than the mild ones, for sure! If you dedicate yourself to dealing with it, and do as you're instructed by your specialists, you should be able to do most, if not all, of what you want out of life. It will be harder for you than for others, but everyone's got a handicap!

No, I have a general idea. After all, I'm usually part of that Christmas rush in Target. >=D

Realisitically, I think I'd do okay in a toy store. My only gripe is that I probably don't know most of these toys, like Green Lantern, Iron Man, and Power Rangers Samurai. But I can give some good recommendations and stuff.

I know there's not much I can do at the moment because I have been waiting news of an appointment with an orthopedic surgeon since around May. As for the acting part, my English teacher said that when I was speaking from a story in our English book, that I seemed to just become the person I was speaking as, also nearly 2 years ago I was in a play as a fat guy, and when I first came on stage, I shuffled across the stage to make it look like I was really fat (which was not planned). Anyway, my life is good at the moment, not letting anything hold me back. I also had occupational therapy on Wednesday, going back there next Wednesday again.

I play Alto Sax (Like a boss, too. ^^ ) and I have asthma. Overcoming your handicaps may be hard, but it's possible.

I was trying to set a password on my phone, and I accidently caused it to block out my sim card. They're sending me another sim card, it will be here either tomorrow or Wednesday morning. Now here's the worst part: I have a date tomorrow afternoon. If my new sim card isn't here by then, I'll have to use other peoples phones to call my girlfriend and get directions to her house and such. This sucks. Angry
Do not make the mistake of thinking double-posting is okay in this thread, please.
How cold has it been for everybody? I am in NC and I am seeing high 50's and mid 60's. The thing is that NC has had not one day below 40 degrees this winter. Even my grandparents in West Virginia said they have seen 70's this winter, and they usually see snow every year!

Then Mr. Hedgehog says 6 more weeks of winter, and NOW Winter weather hits everybody. Man, one weird winter this year...
In Orlando its been around 30 degrees at night and 50-60 during the day. Pretty comfortable weather compared to the abomanable heat that is going to start in March.
Well, apparently, Ireland is like the warmest European country which I never thought would happen because of the likes of Spain, Italy, Portugal, France and all those countries around the Mediterranean Sea.
Um, Valentines day sucks for me. I mean, c'mon! You know the feeling when youre prep for valetines, and your valetine is not going to show at all?!

Well, at least i'm a patient man XD

It was 80 here a couple of weeks ago for a few days. It was low 20's the last week at night, 40~ during the day.

This. Orlando is probably the only state that has it worse than mine on the East Coast.

I get to spend the day in the hospital and my fiancée in college classes until 9 PM.

It's been a steady 30 to 40s up here in Jersey/New York (50s to 60's sometimes). It gets to a 20 sometimes, but it's not that bad; snow isn't common, but it isn't rare this year either. Usually I've seen snow once or twice in the beginning of the year. It's snowed here three times: sticking once and twice wet. But it's actually getting lighter to a point that I wear only a shirt and jacket; no sweater. But as a singer, this weather is NOT good for my voice...
