Do Strangers Think You Smell

Scientists have found that we don't like the smell of strangers.

Good. That would be weird. If your favourite smell was that of people you don't know you'd end up being one of those people who stands too close behind you in lifts.

The flip side is that it means you don't mind the smell of your friends. I would've thought it was the other way round – you pick your friends because you don't mind their smell. If you meet someone and they smell like they wash in sweat you probably don't chat too much.

I know I don't have friends with bad breath because I can't talk to people who have it. Well, if I could talk to them while being nowhere near their mouth, like if I could talk to the back of their heads, but that would look like I was one of those weird people who stands too close to people in lifts.

Here's the research - They gave students smelly T-shirts, one with their university logo and one with a rival university logo. They found the rival logo shirt smellier than the home one.

Now, to be sure it wasn't subliminal suggestion we checked that the logos weren't of a pine forest and a smiling poo emoji, but as it turns out, there isn't a university with a smiling poo emoji as its logo. So I'm learning lots today.

Scientists think this result says we are less disgusted by the sweat of people in our group, and this may be an evolutionary trait as it means we could work closely together in our tribe.

I'd always assumed that life as a caveman just meant coming to terms with the fact that people smell. This was a life before the invention of the shower, soap, and even the toothbrush. People would stink. I was working on a theory that the smell is why cavemen didn't live past their twenties, they just couldn't stand the stench any more.

But this research is saying that we might have liked the smell of the people we shared out caveman life with? These people would've had all the pongs going on. If we were OK with that it's a little dodgy. But back then they hadn't invented lifts, so you could stand behind them and sniff all you want.

Woman Demands Lifetime Supply of KitKats

They say "Never look a gift horse in the month". I think the point of that saying is that if someone is giving you a horse you shouldn't look in its mouth to see if it's healthy, you're getting a free horse after all. But then, maybe someone is trying to give you a sick horse. You'll have the vet bills, the emotional hurt of seeing your horse die and then the funeral can't be cheap. So if you were to offer me a horse, don't take it the wrong way, but I'm checking its mouth.

But still, it annoys me when people aren't grateful in the face of luck. In the news, a woman who bought a KitKat that turned out to be all chocolate has demanded a free lifetime supply as compensation.

Compensation? For what? You got lucky. You hit the motherload. You got a KitKat without that space-filling wafer. I think we can all agree the chocolate is the better part of the KitKat. People buy bars of chocolate. No one really buys a plane wafer on its own. Luck bestowed upon this woman a little treat. A KitKat without the wafer is like a roast without all the veg.

Wanting compensation for that is like trying to sue Camalot for damages after you in the Lottery.

The person in question, Saima Ahmed, said: "I have researched this problem and I found that it wasn't just a one-off and it has happened quite a few times,” she added. There are quite a few forums online where people complain of having KitKats without wafers."

And would these people post snide comments online if they bought some gold-plated jewellery and later found it was actually solid gold? Actually, this is the internet, I bet they would.

So far there has been no response from the manufacturers but if I were them I'd give her a lifetime supply... of Galaxy. Mwah ha ha. Mwah ha ha!!!
