would it be true…that the stink of a fart is directly related to it’s temperature?

test it out!…the next time you have to sit on a stinker, give the air a good snuffle..if the fart nearly sears your arse hairs off, did the fart reek worse than death?

come to think of it, is this relationship relevant to most smells? think about the smell of something cool, then think about how the intensity of that smell changes when the object is warmed. or think about the smell of a hot item during a cold day and how it permeates the air differently. or think about the intensity of regular smells on a hot day – how do they change?

it’s much more fun to think of it in terms of farts of course, but some may be more high-brow than that.
