I feel like smells almost get me high while running and have turned into one of my favorite aspects. Lots of things out there smell good, familiar, nostalgic, and all just add to an already great experience.
Today while running in the snow here in Saint Louis I could smell wood burning in fireplaces, delicious food wafting from homes and restaurants, and a few different homes doing laundry that smelled great.
I dunno, maybe I'm just a weirdo (or part dog). Any of you all love the variety of smells while out on runs?
EDIT: It makes me so happy to see everyone reflecting on and sharing the amazing (and not so amazing) smells they encounter on their runs! Our senses can bring us so much joy and stir up great memories. Keep your nose to the wind on your next run! (unless you live in those stinky places) -Much love y'all
Everywhere you go, giant hairy beasts, giant pigs in sewers that are filled with rotting corpses, One Reborn probably smells awful, the smell of burning flesh in Old Yharnam.
Fishing Hamlet probably smells like rotting fish. I bet The Doll smells nice though.
Edit: thinking about it, all of the Soulsborne games would smell horrendous. The pile of dead bodies by the gate in New Londo Ruins that leads to Valley of the Drakes, Blighttown, the Depths, The Rotten from Dark Souls 2, the Drunkard from Sekiro probably smells like booze and sweat, and shit, also, the Guardian Ape and the shit he throws at you
My roommate is pregnant and certain smells have started affecting her. When she smells these things she gets really sick and ends up in the bathroom heaving for an hour or longer.
Some of the smells that make her the most sick are the smell of eggs, coffee, and dog food. These are smells that are usually in the apartment throughout the day as I have coffee multiple times a day, I eat eggs most mornings, and I have a dog.
She says she knows it’s these smells because the times I’m away or spending the night at my bfs (I take my dog with me) she doesn’t have these issues.
At first she thought it was just the dog food so she asked me to feed my dog in my room. So I did. She said the smell still wafted into the hallway, but she would just quickly go from her room to the living room/kitchen area and it would be fine.
Except as soon as I started cooking eggs that morning she got sick again. Then later in the day I made some coffee and she also got sick again
So now she’s asking me to drink iced coffee and make a bunch of cold hard boiled eggs to eat throughout the week instead. However, I don’t like cold coffee, especially when during the winter, and I think cold eggs are gross.
My roommate however says it’s more unfair that she ends up locked in her room or the bathroom all day whenever I’m around and thinks I’m being a selfish asshole.
Note: Because this drama began between 2010 and 2011, many of the sources have disappeared. I’ve had to rely on interviews, screenshots, my own memory, and other retellings to fully capture this story. I’ve told this to the best of my ability, but I understand there may be some errors. Thank you to u/BICEP_MCTRICEP for providing me further information!
Every fan community has The Story. It’s the incident older members of the fandom always pass down, a warning to the newer members of the line not to cross. In Harry Potter, it was My Immortal. In Voltron, it was the Sheith-Klance shipping war. In Mass Effect, it was the Tali Sweat Post.
Mass Effect is an RPG series created by Bioware, a titan within the genre. It originally centered around the player character, Commander Shepard, and their journey to save the galaxy from the Reapers, a race of machines bent on destroying all organics. The Mass Effect series almost immediately became not just a video game classic, but a classic of the scifi genre. With its immersive plot, fun setting, and fascinating characters, how could it not?
Tali’Zorah nar Rayya was one of the game's many fascinating characters. A cheerful but sarcastic, nerdy engineer, Tali was an alien forced to live inside a suit, due to her race having an extremely sensitive immune system. She proved so popular that she, along with fellow fan-favorite Garrus Vakarian (don’t ask), became love interests in the later games, and constantly rank among the most popular characters.keep reading on reddit ➡
So about a week after the worst covid symptoms were over but I still didn’t have my sense of smell back, I started noticing that when I wake up in the mornings I am overwhelmed by a smell that basically is like if someone puked and then died right next to me. It’s super strong for about 5 minutes and then it goes away and my sense of smell remains completely gone for the rest of the day.
Any idea what causes this and how covid affects the brain in this way?
