I resonated one off the walls when I was sitting, waiting to sign-in. I think I damaged the foundation of the building with the pure noise I made. Talk about embarassing, there were at least 20 people around me that probably heard it. I was so embarassed that I just stared at the ground and started laughing hysterically, completely red-faced. Super humiliating, but really, really funny at the same time. :laugh:

Oh man, that's great. You're getting karma for this one. :laugh: :laugh:
Nerves will do it to you everytime - at least it wasn't during the test in absolute silence.

I got lucky on saturday :) , but the weekend before a friend and I were taking 6r in a classroom when I farted. He was on the other side of the room and within the first minute he just looked up and said "Please, Open the window" :D After 6r we talking about the diffusion rate of the fart and got a couple good laughs out of it. I think i would have been killed on saturday if i dropped those kinds of bombs.

what takes the cake is when you need to sit through a long silent exam right before you get your period. if you are lucky, you will have anticipated this problem and worn, uh, protection in case the flow actually starts during the test. otherwise, you can sit there bloodying the chair and your pants if you'd rather be embarrassed than lose time running to the bathroom. Or, you can run to the bathroom if you brought protection with you. If not, pray the ladies' room has a pad dispenser. If not, pray someone else in the bathroom has feminine napkins or tampons or resort to stuffing your underwear with scratchy institutional TP. Not to mention of course the incredible gas and diarrhea that is brought on by the hormonal changes that take place just prior to and during menstruation. I actually tracked my menstrual cycle three months before April 17, 2004 in order to anticipate any such problems. In the end I couldn't conclude anything because my cycle was going haywire because I was so stressed, but I brought Mylanta Anti-Gas and pads with me in case.

OMG. I have had one situation with unanticipated *flow*....ugh I can tell you it sux. I can just imagine the scenario, that would truly be horrific. I actually had my period during MCAT and it sucked cause at all odd hours I felt the need to change tampons...well little needs to be said that I had to wait for another two hours or so....the misery that womanhood brings (hehe...of course regardless I love being a woman :love: )

wooooow.... It's times like these that I realize some of the perks of being a dude. My heart goes out to any ladies out there that had to deal with such "leakage" during the MCAT. Sitting through an 8 hour exam with that is a TRUE sign of your dedication to become a doc. Jeebus, you could probably use that in your personal statement as an example of a hardship you've faced to become a doc :idea:

It seems like everyone faces adversity on the MCAT in their own way. I had to let one out and, LUCKILY, it turned out to be a silent but deadly! A few people said "PEW", but with the windows open it most certainly subsided and all was well in the world. Plus, I established position so that the proctor stopped walking behind me after that. :D

I would think farting would be to your advantage. The people around you will become disoriented/distracted, and their scores go down:).

Holy CRAP.

That dude had it bad. I can't help but to feel for him, tho. Your friend yes, but moreso the other one. You gotta wonder how HE must have felt.

Although its a good idea to eat some protein before the test so you have energy I wouldn't recommend eating any whey protein a couple days in advance (for those of you who eat it after working out), because that stuff makes you fart like mad. Or at least it makes me fart like mad...

my friend was in a feminist class last year where he was basically the only dude with ~ 20 girls, many of them hot (allegedly). Anyways, after a large lunch one day he lets out a large silent fart, one of those that are dangerously close to being more than just a fart, and cuts it off as soon as he reaches the danger zone. he thinks nothing of it and carries on, taking notes and stealing glances at the ladies for the next 15 minutes or so. at some point he smells something 'funny' and he looks down and notices a brown runny stream flowing down the side of one of his white leather shoes. turns out he actually pooed himself without knowing it! he did not stick around for the rest of class.

i haven't showered in weeks, and I'm planning on downing a nice protein shake before the exam precisely for this purpose.

If I were him, I don't think I would have stuck around for the rest of the semester either!! :laugh:
