Hot damn, I laughed to hard at this.

+1 to you, subby

Just kill us all now and get it over with.

This is also how you teach mice geometry.

That's actually pretty interesting. If there is a link to a specific hemisphere of the brain, then that narrows down the search for causes by half.

It doesn't help me today at all because I'm completely stuffed up with mucus, but on days I'm not stuck at the office nursing a cold I might be able to perform this test.

I do feel bad for all those people who suffer anaphylactic shock, though. YOLO, and all that, I guess.

I often have one nostril performing poorly. I think it's a common condition (the nose likes to alternate sides), but I wonder if it would make me fail this test even though I'm not ahkq21alnkln/

I can't smell anything from either nostril, right now. Does that mean I have double secret Alzheimer's or just a sinus infection?

I'd Skippy over this test and get to that tasty snack in a Jiffy.

Huh. If there were a spoonful of peanut butter nearby, I'd smell it long before it got within ruler distance of my nostrils. I had no idea old people had that much trouble with odors.

Is this that new Saudi test I heard about?

Ever been around old people?

Believe me. A diminishing sense of smell is a blessing in disguise.

What about people with severe anaphylactic reaction to peanut butter... wouldn't this test potentially kill them?
 
2013-10-09 09:25:12 AM
I didn't know odors traveled in a pipeline from each individual nostril directly to your olfactory sensor.

/The more you know

Yes. Our noses do shift work.

You just got the spoon too close. Clean the peanut butter out of your nose and try again.

So this is why my doctor said I either have Alzheimer dementia or a bad case of the boogies.

Maybe I can get them to let me out of this nursing home now...

Oooh, it's pudding day.

Tomorrow.

Well, yes, but then they wouldn't need to worry about the costs associated with Alzheimer's.
 
2013-10-09 09:48:43 AM
Let me know when you smell the peanut butter.

Nothing...nothing...nothing...OK, I smell the pancakes!

You have Alzheimer's.

Walker: From the videos I've seen ---I mean heard about, most dogs are bisexual.


At least. What do you call a neutered dog with a history of air-humping cats?

Okay, it was only the one time, though. That we witnesses, anyway...

snort peanut butter every day

I hated peanut butter as a kid, but now I can't get enough of it. If you take "old-fashioned" peanut butter, drizzle honey into it and mix it up so the sugar emulsifies the oil, you get crack on a spoon.

I always figured the fact that old ladies drench themselves in perfume (usually horrible, florally smelling stuff, or stuff that smells like cheap bathroom air spray) was because their sense of smell declined, kinda like sight and hearing.

No fear. GE will figure out how to turn a teaspoon of peanut butter and a ruler into a $2million machine that requires a certified operator, a special room and a 3 month wait.
 
2013-10-09 11:36:00 AM
Swell, I've apparently been senile since I was lost my sense of smell at about age 5.


Sinus operations, actually.

After scanning a FARK thread about Halloween Candy earlier, this raises an interesting liability question about giving candies with peanut products to my neighbor's kids.  What if one of the little dears becomes ill?  Will I be sued for everything I own?

Yes, with any luck.

Well, they potentially already have Alzheimers.
