Eau de Death: The Scent To Keep You Safe During The Zombie Apocalypse!

Well, the good folks over at American Chemist want to be sure you are safe and to coincide with the upcoming season finale of AMC’s The Walking Dead, they have revealed Eau de Death, the only cologne you will need to survive the rise of the dead.

We all know that zombies are only attracted to the scent of living human flesh, so why not mask yourself in the scent of death. Researchers have discovered that the key to creating the perfect scent of death (and zombie camouflage) is to mix together two compounds that are found within the human body as it decomposes and who could ask for a better name than : putrescine and cadavarine.

Both chemicals give off that scent of death even at very low quantities and are active in parts per billion.  In the video, seen below, it is noted that a modified version of the E. coli bacteria could act as a “little factory” for the chemicals, producing the putrescine and cadverine (as well as a little bit of methanethiol for that “rotten egg, boiled cabbage smell”) all in … Read the rest…

A Human Nose Has The Ability To Smell A Least A Trillion Different Scents

smell1(PCM) When thinking about the ways in which human beings use their senses each and every day, many times our sense of smell can be overlooked, however it has recently been revealed that our noses have the ability to sniff out at least a trillion different scents.

There was an assumption made years ago, 1927 to be exact, that the human nose was only able to detect about 10,000 different odors, however a new study published in Science has revealed that number to be much, much higher. There are times that we, as humans, are barely even aware that we are smelling anything at all.

This new finding actually proves that by being able to distinguish between over 1 trillion different scents the human nose has more sensitivity than any other organ in our bodies. Researchers at Rockefeller University and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute tested the noses of a group of volunteers using precisely crafted mixtures of odor molecules to complete their research.

Obviously researchers were not going to be able to test a trillion different smells individually, so they used 128 different odorant molecules to create smell mixtures that were reminiscent of familiar smells such a fresh cut … Read the rest…

A scientist who spoke with the Siberian Times said “”The data we are about to receive will give us a high chance to clone the mammoth.We must have a reason to do this, as it is one thing to clone it for scientific purpose, and another to clone for the sake of curiosity.”

If the cloning is a success than it needs to be taken into consideration that the animal created during the cloning process will be different than the woolly mammoth that was living approximately 43,000 years ago. The evolutionary paths of both the woolly mammoth and the elephant split many years ago.
