It's not that different than how snakes use their forked tongues to process that kind of chemical information.

Snakes and forked tongues, are tools of Satan.

It's a shame we associate free thinking with the stoner sterotype.  If only people were allowed to think freely.

This was the subject of one of the more interesting sessions on a Sensory Evaluation course I was in. It's not quite news, but still kind of cool. The gist of that particular lecture was that pretty much any animal with two nostrils can locate things by smell alone, but the distance apart might be so small that it is really difficult (multiplied by other factors, like the size of the nasal cavities and how much the animal in question generally relies on their other senses). As the article says, dogs are GREAT at it (huge noses, widely-spaced nostrils, smell is their primary interaction method with the world) so it does not surprise me that moles do the same (their nostrils are close together, but their noses are fairly long and they don't really have any OTHER way to hunt except maybe by feeling vibrations).

The best part was the video of an undergraduate class doing a semi-study on humans' ability to nasolocate, though that might have just been because it involved cute coeds on all fours, blindfolded and with covered ears, sniffing around to find chocolate.

It's been alleged that I fart in five-point surround sound -er- smell.

What, you can't tell if a stink is coming from your left or right?

Dude, it's all about the mole noses in your mind. I mean, what if there was a mole... IN YOUR MIND? And you could smell him. But because it was in stereo, you thought there were TWO moles in your mind. BUT

With stereo smell, stereo hearing, and stereo vision, people could always tell it was me when I let one rip.
Although my reputation could have had an influence.
