A Corpse Flower by any Other Name...

A corpse flower takes a decade to bloom and there is one opening up at Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, Minnesota.

You can visit it.  I wish I could. It sounds divine!

What do people say?
"They squinch up their faces and say the standard things you would say if you smelled a rotting animal carcass," said associate chemistry professor Brian O'Brien. "One person came real close to throwing up a few minutes ago, and another one wound up throwing up after leaving the room."
Give me a few minutes alone with a corpse flower. I would roll in it. And then I would be the envy of the dog park!
