snips


These all sound about right. However, ripe fruit smells nice. It's the
over-ripe fruit that starts to smell bad.

Possibly. However, AFAIK, the stink of OVER-ripe fruits is *also* a
result of a mixture of different organic substances, ^^excluding^^ the
aforementioned 5 categories of chemicals.

Ever smelled a papaya? EEWWWWWWWW! Stinky!

No, but it definitely could have something to do with your inability
to accept the sincere answers that have been given you in this thread.

Fruit smells bad only to you. It doesn't smell bad to the rest of us.

Sour fruits don't smell bad. In fact, they smell delicious.

IMHO, there is nothing more appetizing than the fresh, delicious,
heavenly, bright, warm, cool, elastic, vibrating, buzzing, tingly,
rejuvenating, refreshing aroma of sour, organic, natural, pesticide-
free, red-&-green peaches right from the tree.

Compare the above paradise to the stench of yellow, squishy, sugary,
juiceless, starch-like, over-ripe peaches. EWWWWW! Stinky stinky
stinky.

Then just don't eat them for pity sakes!

I don't see what your issue is!

Everybody has individual tastes. Just go with what works for you.

Knowing the "chemical composition" is not going to change anything.

Have them up your meds.

Please.

Om,
remember the story of the tar-baby? The more Br'er Rabbit messed with
it, the worse it got. I think what we got here is a tar-baby. If you is
havin' fun, go ahead on, but if you t'aint, stop messin' wit it.

I want to know the chemical composition so I can use those malodorous
compounds for olfactory-sadomasochistic purposes and to play pranks on
my enemies by making them stink badly like yellow, squishy, sugary,
juiceless, starch-like, over-ripe mangoes, that way no one will go
near them.

Quick Quick. The party is soon!

Point taken. ;-)

I just need to kf the thread.

And that poster....

That way I won't be prodded into wasting my time.
I've dealt with AS people on other lists before, and they really are
never worth debating because it's like they just don't hear you or
something.

Hence my comment about needing a severe beating.

Please forgive me but there are some people I just have no patience for.

One of which, as I understand, is social cluelessness causes AS people
to often insult people or piss people off, unintentionally.


Actually, it may. AS people often have one or more senses overly
sensitive so something minor irritates them. Often it's something like
tags on clothes, they have to cut them off.
