Default Modern Marvels: Stink !

Yesterday the History Channel aired a Modern Marvels episode titled "STINK".
Unfortunately it focused on technologies to actually reduce various stenches.
I was hoping it would concentrate on how to ENHANCE a stink.

They actually featured a device called the "Stink-O-meteR"....cesspools/cisterns/sanitary sewers/septic tanks smelled the worst out of all items tested, scoring just over 400 out of 500 possible on the scale.
Farm manure was one of the lowest at 16 points out of 500 on the Stink-O-meteR.

They should have tested a well-putrefied road-kill carcass, but did not.

Focusing on stink reduction is just plain WRONG.
Feet, armpits, and fecal matter are supposed to stink, period.

They should have had B.O.Plenty host the show.

I wonder what kind of manure. Cow manure doesn't stink unless it's concentrated and stays wet for extended periods such as rain and pee soaked feed lots. Even then, it smells like money to me. Hog manure smells horrible to me in any concentration at any time until it dries out. Poultry ain't far behind. Horse manure is a little worse than cow manure to me, but I imagine it's just because I'm not used to it. On the up side, it seems to be more dry so it's pungency probably doesn't last as long.

Here's the upside. This started out as a $hi++y thread, so it can't get any worse!

That is an old show. I remember seeing it 5 years ago when I was still watching the Hysteria Channel when it was in it's pre-Ancient Aliens good phase. Modern marvels was a good show until they ran out of ideas....

I posted this photo a few years ago--during one of my 8-week long India trips, but this "river" in Trichy, Tamil Nadu was hands down the most foul thing I've ever smelled.

It was a combination of garbage, poo, pee, indusrial waste, bloated animal carcasses, and the occassional human corpse, all fermenting in 100+ heat.

The smell CANNOT be described.

I have never been to the armpit of the world known as India and never will.
Not surprised one iota that the entire country smells like a cesspool/sewer.
I like to pull stink pranks on OTHERS.
Most that have tried pulling a prank on me never try it again as I tend to deal retribution in a VERY vindictive manner.
ALWAYS a prankster, NEVER a prankee.

I can see a situation where another guy like you and you will get into an almost never-ending cycle of ever more elaborate stink pranks until it ends in a knock-down brawl.......

I'm thinking it is time for "Stink-O-ramA" 2014, followed by Stink-Fest 2014.
Upper-Dekkers not only authorized, but encouraged in all public toilets featuring a tank.
No tank ? Pull the Urinal-Deuce or Sink-Deuce with the optional Splatt-'N-Smeer.
