"Monell researchers have previously found that underarm odor contains clues to a person's age, health and sex. "


So if someone walks into my house and exclaims, "It smells like sex in here.", I should respond by saying it's just my smelly armpits?

It takes up to 50 liters of sap to get 1 liter of maple syrup. Ain't no one got time for that...ziiiiiip.

The best thing for ear wax removal? Olive oil and water. Strange but true.

As far as ear wax goes I'd call this the mother lode. My guess would be that it smelled like a rotting corpse.

I'm trying to imagine how it's possible to have something that large (and disgusting) lodged in your head. ... Nope, I can't do it. That's unpossible.

I'm sure your mom could explain it rather eloquently given her breadth of experience in the matter

I was once trying to track down the source of this image:

media.thedenverchannel.com

I found it on a bunch of pages discussing human ear wax.
// it is a picture of "ear wax" hash

I did a summer exchange program in Japan back in '84 or so.  One of the professors actually made the point that Japanese people were distinct from the native Ainu... due to their different ear wax.

Back then, I thought it was an odd thing to be racially sensitive about...and I still do.

Yesterday a friend informed me that he regularly lets his cat lick his armpits.

And yes, he is.

Anyone remember the MythBusters episode where they made candles from earwax? It was nasty.
