Grossing out Your Sense of Smell

I am feeling much gross today, and I will be grossing others too.

This time, I will abuse the sense of smell. Though I cannot make you smell the things I am about to share with you today, I will trust your imagination that it will do the grossing out for me.

Here is my list of the grossest smelling things on this planet. This is not every little smelly thing that the world offers, but these are my top picks.

  1. Feces. There is no explaining needed on why this might just be the smelliest thing on the planet. May it be animal dung or human feces, you can be sure that nobody ever thinks this thing to smell sweet and heavenly. Imagine what people working septic tanks have to go through?
  2. Stale fish. Forgotten fish is the worst. After a few days, this thing exudes a smell that is so foul; it will send your dinner back up your throat and out your mouth.
  3. Burnt flesh. Burnt pork? Yum. Burnt bread, surprisingly, still smells great. But burnt human flesh? Very offensive to one’s nose. While you should be thankful you are not the one burnt, it still is undeniable how nose stifling burnt flesh can be. You can also add the visual impact this has, watching skin burn away to see flesh is also not a very pretty sight.
  4. Bad Mouth. This is one of the biggest problem that some people face, and I am not talking about the person with the bad breathe. People who have to encounter a person with foul mouth odor also have struggles of their own. Not only is it difficult to inform the person about his hygiene problems, you have to endure the foul smell until that person finally discovers that toothbrush and mouth wash has already been invented.
  5. Compost pit. Of course this pile of garbage will be as stale as it gets. After all, it is a pile of garbage. One bag of garbage alone already has a foul smell that could make you clip your nose. How much nose damage do you think a compost pit would do?
  6. Stagnant waters. Especially in the sewer lines, stuck water that has been contaminated with all foreign entities possible, will surely make you gag and cry. Imagine hundreds of bacteria and dirt have a congregation in the sewers. The putrid level will surely be off the charts. Nobody would ever want their sewage lines to leak and cause so much pain in the nose and heart.
  7. Unclean dog. People should realize that having a dog takes effort. I just hate owners who do not take good care of their pets. They should have not had a pet if they were just going to let it get dirty and sick. The worst part is when you have to deal with their foul odor because it has been years since their masters have given them a good bath, or if they have indeed been given baths, they took to long to dry up so the “wet dog” odor starts creeping in.

There is no moral lesson to the post. It’s just my way of saying that there are a lot of foul things this world offers. Most of them are natural, some are man-made. Maybe people should start working on things that could still be fixed so that people in their circles will not have to deal with such foul smells. This includes those with bad breath and those pet owners who does not seem to care.

Gross Things you did not know are in Your Food

While we go about our daily lives, sleeping, working, and of course, eating, we are blinded by the many possible gross things that people we interact with are doing to us.

This is especially true for the food we eat from the shops and stores. We so blindly trust them that they are serving us clean, fresh, and healthy food that we forget to think about the numerous possibilities that could be going on behind that kitchen door of the restaurant.

Here is a list of gross food items that either are really gross in itself, or have yucky ingredients that we did not know were there. The best part? We love to eat them!

BREAD

No. I’m not talking about yeast which is a fungi that they use to make dough, nor am I talking about cheese and other dairy products that are actually produced through letting milk “rot” for days, I am talking about, HUMAN HAIR. Do you care to know just how dirty human hair is?

Some bread have human hair and feathers in them so that they could achieve a certain texture. The next time you plan to eat that yummy bread, think about the possibility that it has human hair. I’m pretty sure you can use this as motivation to cut on carbs brought by too much bread intake.

MEAT

Not to sound vegan to you, but, I am just letting you know that some meats are injected with a bacteria that is actually deadly. It is called the MRSA and it is a flesh eating bacteria that actually kills thousands of people in a year. Of course, they are placed in minimal amounts in meat and producers must have a very good reason for it, but, if you just contemplate on that thought, does it not want you to go vegan right this very moment?

SALAD

Salads with clear or white dressing? How did they get that color for the dressing? Well, they place a paint chemical to achieve it. Yes, what you paint your walls with, is in that fresh salad you’re eating. Now, what was that about being vegan?

CANDIES

Yes, our parents keep on warning us about these candies. But they only do so because they know that sugar can cause us bad teeth and expensive visits to the dentist. However, have you ever wondered what makes candies so bright in color? Well, its thanks to the abdomen of lady bugs. Yes, crushed lady bug abdomens give some candies that red color. It is also sometimes in yogurts too.

RASPBERR JUICE

This might be the grossest among the items in this list. Just imagine this, the next time you drink that yummy raspberry juice, think about what that ingredient called ‘natural flavoring’ actually is. No, it’s not raspberry but rather, Beaver Anal gland juice. I won’t even expound on how gross that is.

Were you grossed out? Then this blog was a success. Happy eating, everyone!
