Burning hair and flesh. Once you've smelled that, you'll never forget it. And it's as vile a smell as I have ever experienced.

 

Cat crap can also smell pretty bad. Ditto duck crap. There used to be (maybe still is) a duck farm off of the 605 freeway over near Whittier... on a hot summer day, it can be extremely rank.

Phil, I used to have to drive by that farm every day from here to my former workplace in Irvine. Nasty!

 

I have to say that, with 5 cats here (none of which, by the way, get into the studio...ever!) the smell of cat urine is one I have come to abhor. What with 4 male cats seeking to gain territory it gets pretty bad. Can't they just have their own room and stick to it?

P.S. And yes, the burning person theory is a horrible thing to witness.

ditto on the burning hair and flesh... that's the sort of thing that trespasses on your soul...

 

I could name something else, but i'll let y'all guess at it until someone else brings it up.

 

I'm not saying anything because those whom are afflicted with it cannot help it (or escape it either).

Well, barf, dead animals, burning flesh and hair (smelled it from an animal control place once that was disposing of euthanized animals), rotten fish, a certain fermented manure smell around organic farms, all that qualifies. Yup.

 

But here's one we can all relate to...that burning smell after your amp goes *FITZ*POP*CRACKLE* FSHHHHhhhhhh...and silence...and that wisp of smoke and that burning electrical smell that lets you know that something is seriously FUBAR'ed.

Good call. :thu: Did you fry an amp recently? :confused:

Not recently, but, er, let's say I do have some experience in the matter. :rolleyes:

Sugar beet processing centers. Hell, sugar beets themselves. It got so bad when I lived in the thumb area of Michigan that I no longer use beet sugar. I go out of my way to buy cane sugar. ('Cause beet sugar smells faintly of sugar beets. Yee-ick!)

*The smell of engine coolant and engine oil mixed together once emptied my bank account. That's something you never forget! :(

 

*Southern Comfort. Hell, just the sight of the bottle makes me squeamish.

 

*My doggie's breath. Holy schnykies!

None more black.

About ten years ago I got on the Grayhound bus and was minding my own business listening to my Walkman when this very fat woman who was at the back of the bus got up and walked passed me and it smelled like she hadn't washed her crotch in a couple of weeks. God that was a rude awakening! :P

Battle Creek, Michigan.

 

Plymouth, Indiana (about halfway between Chicago and Fort Wayne, IN) There's some sort of livestock crematorium there.

 

Play-Doh.

 

Grease disposal drains in the back of restaurants.

 

Vomit.

 

The pink sawdust used to soak up vomit.

 

Bleach intermingled with various human excretia in the booths at adult bookstores (worked at one for two years).

 

Just about anything that was living at one time after its been sealed in an airtight container for a while, be it chicken soup, a dog, or a mob hit.. That truly is the worst of the worst.

"For instance" is not proof.

Not just smelling Southern Comfort, but smelling southern comfort... when you have a mean ass hangover!!

 

Same with Vomit. Its not the vomit, its what you vomit!! Aroma of regurged Budweiser and pizza anyone? Or your dog vomiting alpo??

 

How about...

 

-Fish oil

-Castor oil(as it goes down your throat)

-Burning pile of tires

-floating rotten fish corpses you find on those fishing trips w/ Uncle Rupert.

-Not to be outdone by bloated floating rotten RAT.

-Burning flesh and hair....bah, try smelling burning vats of blood walking thru a hot dog factory.

TROLL . . . ish.

Commercial hog farms.

 

Homes with out of control cat populations.

 

Zeronyne's reference to porn shops made me think of the scene in a Cheech and Chong movie when arabic agents followed them into an XXX theatre. One of them sniffs the air and comments: "Hmm, smells like wet camel in here."

 

So, Zeronyne, you might avoid the camel exhibit at the zoo if it's been raining.
