Sometimes flatus can cause social difficulty.
I have also known young people who compete with each other for the most vigorous and loud results. Adults generally use words in their competitions. The "silent but deadly" forms of flatus may be employed in large groups of people. You can move quickly away from the "cloud" to avoid detection, yet your commentary will have been subtly made.
