Smells very important - in the evaluation of things surrounding the brain rely on olfactory information is almost the same as on the visual. It is believed that these two concepts are interrelated: if someone looks like a tramp, then we assume that the smell of it, respectively. But it does not always work so well. We invite you to get to know four things that produce quite the smell, what you can expect:
1. Back "bear cat" smells like popkorn
Binturong, a number of countries known as the "bear cat" really looks like a stray cat, which had to go through a lot. These animals surly character when they are frightened, then let out a thin stream of liquid with a pungent odor that causes a burning sensation when inhaling. And if a man angry binturong, he may even help him or defecate with tree branches.
However, when the animal wants to mark territory, it starts to smell like a cinema hall. Cat bears no less than ordinary cats, love to rub on the angles, trees and people to mark them as "their».
Unlike cats, binturong anal glands emit a smell similar to the smell of popcorn. So in the last minutes before he managed natural needs, the smell can even be called pleasant.
2. truffles smell like a very courageous muzhchiny
Try truffles are not so simple - they cost $ 1,200 a pound. Therefore, if you treat the most about 99% of people who have ever tried in my life any mushrooms, truffles but you can assume that the truffles smell about the same. Nothing of the sort.

4. Hunger smells like fruit and alkogol
Once you permanently cease to eat, your body begins to digest itself. First, it absorbs carbohydrates, then taken for fats and eventually comes to protein. This is extremely dangerous to health, and hungry people look terrible, so it is more than ironic that hunger is very pleasant smell.
