Back of the envelope math:

According to wikipedia
"The volume of flatus associated with each flatulence event again varies (5–375 mL)."

Let's give the benefit of the doubt and assume 1 L or 1000 mL. 1 L of air is approximately 1 grams.

Let's say it exits at a velocity of 10 m/s (which seems too high to me), but it won't make a difference.

added momentum by the fart is: m*v = 0.01 kg m/s

Assuming Bolt weights 100 kg, that means the far would propel him 0.1 mm/s

So theoretically: yes. In reality: no.

Today I learned that "Flatus" is the scientific term for fart gas.

When everyone was referencing GameFAQs conversations I got confused, I thought it was having a resurgence!

Just got my first ban there, a month for downplaying transphobia concerns and gaslighting.

I'm pretty upset about it, as supporting trans people is an issue very close to my heart. I made a post saying that I didn't know if boycotting products was the right way to go about it, but instead there should be a focus on educating people as I believe a lot of transphobia comes from ignorance. I get they have a zero tolerance policy towards transphobia, but I've been sticking up for trans people and trying to fight people's ignorance to it for a long time, and to get banned from anyone for anything to do with transphobia really hurts.

I would appeal that ban honestly and explain your position.

That's a one way ticket to an even longer, or even permanent ban. Never question the authorities!

Depends on how you phrase it.

You're sincere about the issues facing trans people and expressed your views sensibly, and somebody took offence that your suggested method to educate people on the issues was not the solution they think is best. It seems this person incorrectly thinks that 'zero tolerance for hate' is the same as 'must agree with my view exactly.' It's a short-sighted approach to moderation on the website and in life because it pushes away everyone who doesn't comply with views and they will just end up with a ghetto where everyone is a nodding head. A better approach is to have people who have views on all subjects deemed ignorant, as long as they are not hateful. Through time and conversation they may come to develop a better understanding of others and their live experiences.

Grin. Like has been said above. Appeal the decision and explain your point like you did here. If they refuse to reduce or unban you certainly don't take it personally or interpret to be a comment on the validity of your views. It's simply an unskilled mod who handled things wrong. You know who you are better than anyone.

You seem to be under the misapprehension that the moderation and admin team over there are not pathetic dweebs on a power trip because they were bullied at school. It's their way (and only EXACTLY their way) or the highway. Any variation is not permitted, lest you get accused of backseat modding.

I think part of the problem there is that they can't empathise with or understand any member because they are too big.
