What's the most disgusting smell that you've experienced?

I don’t think that there is a worse smell in the world than rotton potatoes.

That is indeed fowl, but I think cat vomit/poo is definately up there on the list. Makes me dry retch if not throw up involuntarily.

hydrogen sulfide/rotten eggs, a rat opened up (dissected) STINKS, ditto for most animals though…so far i have had to cut open rats, sharks, cats, frogs, pig, cow brain, crayfish and a couple more that i forget right now. point is..i am basically getting immune to bad smells.

I pot of mac and cheese I left in the sink for two weeks (late Christmas vacation present to myself). I was amazed at how incapacitating mold can smell. Its also damn near impossible to get rid of.

Ammonium Chloride…as it was leaking from the construction in the downstairs flat up into mine. It inundated my apartment and everything smelled of it for over a week. I had to stay with friends and have all my clothes laundered.

Feacal vomit. Its when you bowel gets blocked and you throw up faeces. I dont know if its the smell or just the thought of it.

My dog getting sprayed in the mouth by a skunk and minutes later having diarrhea from it on the dining room carpet. Ended up having to rip out the carpet and replace! Yuck-sorry for that image…just be glad you weren’t there.

I once dug up a dead whale (for the whale bone) that had been buried under the sand for a few years. It was supposed to be nice dry bones by then but, oh no, it was a giant quagmire of the most foul smelling putrescence imaginable. The stench filled the beach and there was no escape.

Having never dealt with buried whales or fecal vomiting (which I have never even heard of), I do have familiarity with an assortment of foods gone bad and molds etc. For me the worst was a human body found dead after a week or so in a warm upstairs room.

Roadkill that’s been baking in 100-degree weather for the better part of two days.

Stool samples being tested for E. Coli.

And yeah, rotting potatoes is right up there… ::barf::
