    Funkified Stankiness

    What is the worst smell you have ever had the displeasure to experience?


    Rotten potatoes are pretty bad. The kind you touch and your finger goes right through them. YICKS!!

    The smell of Malathion or Lime-Sulphur spray.
    Both smell absolutely awful and even make me sick to the stomach! Blech!

    The worst smell I have ever experienced was while taking a tour at a certain research university. Part of the tour went into the animal research area and included the room where they take all the rats after they have been euthanized. So picture 100's of rotting giant rat carcasses and the smell thereof.

    The odor emitted when you you uncap the septic system on a boat that has sat in the Texas heat for a long period of time is not at all pleasant. Esp. if the systems vent is clogged and pressure has built up in the system and the damn thing soaks you in human waste when you uncap it. A literal fountain of feces straight in the face. I can assure that in my case it resulted in immediate violent regurgitation, followed almost immediately by diving overboard. Luckily did not hit the dock, only pure, clean, cool, cleansing, water. Sadly the water was unable to wash the memory of this event from my mind. Hopefully time will, but I doubt it.

    So now being involved in politics wouldn't phase you?

    Kind of tight between a porty-potty on a hot day, and I-95 in far northern North Carolina, where the hog farms seem to always be upwind.
    The search for inner peace continues...

    No, I was able to was this off, not sure that politician stank is washable.

    Close tie to hog farm is a chicken farm on a hot, still, humid day! Neither one is pleasant.

    He's over 1,000 miles away, but Jsharr could do the midwest a favor and use some Gold Bond powder once in a while.

    I've got an in-law who has a hog farm. When asked about the smell he says:

    "Smells like money to me."

    I guess my worst is the time I turned the wrong breaker at my g-ma & g-pa's house when we were staying there on weekends one summer when they were away. I was "supposed" to hit the breaker for the hot water heater, but the following weekend we got there, realized I had hit the breaker for the deep freezer.

    So the smell of a deep freezer that sat in Florida summer for a week. All the meat and everything in there spoiled, rotted and the thing was FILLED with maggots.

    We had to clean it out and try to salvage the freezer.

    The bait bucket the neighbors' kids left on the dock. Georgia sun baked red wigglers and crawdads, awh, bit noisome.

    Also not fond of the smell of a tooth being vaporized by a dental drill, although the sound may be worse.

    On one of the MUPs here, it passes right by a meat packing plant. Seriously, in this kind of weather, it's the worst possible smell ever. Makes me want to puke... gives me the motivation to pedal faster, though.

    Riding along, motorpacing cars in Amish country, and getting stuck behind every roadie's worst nightmare: the Volkswagen Rabbit diesel. This is a car that, after 25 years of being beaten into use every day, smells worse than all the beer farts after the St. Patrick's day parade and the Nathan's hot-dog eating contest combined! Not pleasant, and definitely in need of euthanisation...

    The catfish bait my dad and uncles used when I was a kid. It was basically rotted cow brains mixed with Limburger cheese. It was horrible, but it worked.
