I understand the worry these people in Los Angeles had when this strangely smelling gas drifted through their neighbourhoods, but what would you do if garlic scented gas filled your nostrils one evening?
Their response was to jam the lines to the police station with calls for help but I don’t think that I would be calling the police.
I suspect my immediate Pavlovian response would be to dump any plans I had for cooking dinner, call the nearest pizza shop, and place an order for my favourite Pepperoni pizza and a roll of garlic bread!
Hmmm… I wonder if the area where this smell originated was known for its restaurants? Perhaps this was some sort of none-too-subtle marketing tool that got a bit out of control?
