Is it an acceptable practice to walk by and crop dust your friend in the gym? Or must you seize the opportunity for revenge another time?

I run an outdoor gym, so let er fly.

For an indoor gym, I find it best to start the rippage around the second bolt and continue to the top. If I'm afraid I'll trail it down, I'll hang and check out moves on the routes for a minute to allow it to properly filter.

Forgot to add, there is an annoying and strong kid at the gym who never shuts up. I frequently tackle him and vent. This is called mentoring I believe.

LOL! I hadn't heard it put quite that way before.

Yes, perfectly acceptable, unless babeage is nearby of course.

Some innocent bystanders aren't so innocent, but better safe then sorry!

I held one for two hours due to babeage once, not recommended. I say let it fly, if she comes back (or doesn't run away) she's a keeper!

pfft. I thought that title of mentoring was one given by the reciever, and not self proclaimed. That would seem more like educating to me.

No. That's pooping in the gym, not farting in the gym.

No. But, there is a difference between sweaty feet with b.o. and fart stink.

Or in more formal terms:

If you love some one,
Let the farts fly.
If they come back they're yours;
if they don't they never were...

All I have to add to that one is watch exactly who you are crop dusting!! Remember that your belayer holds YOUR life in THEIR hands. If their hands have to come off that rope to hold their nose, you could be totally screwed and the only moves you'll be busting are going to be when you hit the floor!
