World’s Worst Smell
No, I’m not talking about that guy on the streetcar this morning, or the porta-potties on day 3 of Coachella in 107° heat, although those may be components. Dr. Pamela Dalton was contracted by the government to create a non-lethal stink bomb for them.
From an article over on Mental Floss,
Dalton surveyed the vilest odors from around the globe (fish oil factories, old toilet brushes, etc., ad nauseum—literally) and identified the key elements. Specifically, she focused on two kings of the stench world—rotting corpses and human waste—and recreated them in her lab.
I wonder if they added any durian into the mix?
