It is obvious that none of you have had the pleasure of driving downwind of
a tannery!
The delightful eau of hydrogen sulfide wafting through the air is not to be
forgotten. It puts even the best attempts of a northern Wisconsin paper mill
to shame, uric acid and all.
Nonetheless, as I have been informed by someone who had the experience, if
you live downwing of a tannery you will get used to even that. Amazing what
your nose can program out.
