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.

Monkeyfark Ridiculous: 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.


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.

Ever been around old people?

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

Swell, I've apparently been senile since I was lost my sense of smell at about age 5.


Sinus operations, actually.

ZAZ: 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/


Yes. Our noses do shift work.

I didn't know odors traveled in a pipeline from each individual nostril directly to your olfactory sensor.

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.
