Talking is coping mechanism that allows a person to rationalize and validate their own fears, concerns ,worries, dreams and hopes. If we are not allowed to vent , we end up bottling up our emotions which is detrimental to the human psyche and can end up suffering from it's side effects. Such as Ulcers, depression , high blood pressure, anxiety migraines, fatigue..the list goes on and on. So when you find yourself in the position of being the receiver of someones griping moaning bitching realize that not always is advice warranted but more or less you have become the outlet for someones Physical and Psychological health.

The period of time, before which you must eliminate solid waste matter from your body, where your sphincter slightly opens to slowly relieve the pressure caused by heavy amounts of poo gases in your rectum. Quite simply, right before you have to take a big dump, shit stink creeps out of your ass in long, silent, slow-like poots. The only remedy, of course, is taking that big aforementioned dump.
Bro 1: Dude, what's goin-...yo man, it smells like shit in here. Did you fart?

Bro 2: Nah guy, I'm venting.

Verb. The act of aggressively inserting oneself into the conversation and life of ones peers. Venting is used to describe the act of joining a conversation without being invited. Venting is also usually negative and argumentative in nature. A signature venting move is to stand silently over one's shoulder going unnoticed until an opportune moment to interject with a negative comment.
JP: Did you guys hear about that new movie, Dumb and Dumber 2?
Jimbo: Yeah man! That movie looks tight. You and me should definitely go see it!
JP: Yeah man! Let's do it. I think there is a showing tonight at 7. Maybe we could meet up at the mcmen-
Gary: -That movie seems forced... I don't think it's going to be good. It just looks stupid to me. (leaves)
JP: Wow. That kid is always "venting" on our conversations. Such a hater.
