Industrial indigestion

In the parlance of our petrochemical times, chemical facilities and oil refineries have "upsets." It's a word everyone understands and accepts without question. Like having too much of that spicy chili last night. Industrial upsets lead to "emissions" that must be sent to the "flare." The human equivalent is the "breaking of wind" or, in the parlance of our times, the "fart," a term also easily understood though sometimes resulting in social shunning.
