Wind Maps is a website that allows you to see the current (or past) wind patterns in the U.S. This picture doesn't really do it justice because on the website all those little lines are moving in spirals and being all trippy.

If the wind breaks right behind you, you farted. If somebody says something it probably wasn't silent. That or it smells. Blame someone else and make a quick exit (I recommend a cape flourish/smoke bomb combo).
