# co2 help

## Recommended Posts

hey guys and or girls, i am max im 16 and i live in ontario canada. i was woundering if any of you could help me out with a little idea i have.

(sorry for the spelling mistakes in advance)

i know pop has caron dioxide which when in your stomac will make you burp.

my friend whet in for a xray of his stomac and they gave him some stuff that was rich in carbon dioxide or bicarbonates or something that yielded alot of carbon dioxide gas to fill up his stumac so it could get xrays then he lat out a huge burp and it went away

so i was thinking what is there that yields alot of carbon dioxide or other expanding gases. thats the first part of my idea,

part two

once there is alot of gas you will burp, now i was wondering

is there some way of holding in the gas for a extended period of time.

i was thinking, make some sort of pill that the outside is made of some expanding ballon like somastane that is non toxic and biodigradable (otherwise edable) then have the middle quite potant co2 or yielding substance (or other co2 like gas like natuarl gas) so that somehow (im not sure how) it would react with the stomacs 'atmosphere' and expand, your stumach would fill up with the ballon till it is very full/large and under conciderable psi seeing that the outside couting would not let the gas escape for a while (target time would be 5-15 minutes) till it gets eatin away enough by acid to pop and let all the gas out makeing a quite funny big burp. this seems rediculesly hard but it would be really really cool, not just the burping factor but also haveing a temperary "pot-belly"

i was wondering if any of you could help me fiqure out how to both (or just one would be helpful) find away to put a large portion of gas in your tummy and and some way to harness it. any help whatsoever or even ideas/sagestions whould be greatly greatly aprciated, thank you very much, max

the stomach contains Hydrochloric acid, and when thats mixed with a bicarbonate (sodium bicarb for example) CO2 is given off. youll probably find that he was given something along these lines to create the gas

Other Bicarbonates are also used in Antacid tablets like Tums or Rennie etc...

as well as giving of CO2 gas, it also neutralises the stomach acid for a while.

thanks a bunch yt2095 give but would sodium bicarb give off alot of co2? (i know the amount of acid is a factor), thanx

The "balloon" idea may be kind of bad. Wouldn't that be one nasty stomach ache?

Just drink a large amount of soda on an empty stomach and don't let it out until you want to let out the big belch. You might add a little live brewers yeast to the soda for extra effect. Don't subject you body to anything more dangerous than that.

What about Alka-Seltzer (or equivalent) or pop-rocks? They would seem to fit the bill.

I recall hearing a story of someone who swallowed the alka-seltzer tablets instead of dissolving them in water, as one is supposed to (they effervesce), and he supposedly burped for a long time.

I rember when I was in school someone swallowed a piece of chalk during chemistry - never do this ever!

I know someone that blew up ducks by feeding them alka-seltzer. Apparently they can't burp...

Why do you need a pill to burp? With enough practice you can burp on command. I've been doing it for years. My cousin could fart on command, but I have yet to master this kung fu.

Just drink a bunch of soda, and bounce up and down shaking yourself up. Another option would be to pop a tums or two, but I'd be carefull with expanding your stomach, I've heard a torn stomach is horrible pain.

you all raise valed points, i wasnt really thinking of expaneding the stmoac, just filling it up all the way. and the reason i thought about the ballon idea is beacuse once it gets to a sertin point its really hard to keep in a burp.

plus it would be a really funny practical joke to give it to someone then have there stomac swell up and make em look pregnat or something, lmao imposable to hide
