Memories That Smell Like Gasoline by David WojnarowiczNot content to be a tremendous photographer, painter, film-maker, performance artist and activist David Wojnarowicz (1954-1992) was also the author of three classic books: Close to the Knives, The Waterfront Journals and Memories That Smell Like Gasoline, now back in print from Artspace. This volume collects four tales--Into the Drift and Sway, Doing Time in a Disposable Body, Spiral and the title story--interspersed with ink drawings by the artist. Sometimes it gets dark in here behind these eyes I feel like the physical equivalent of a scream. The highway at night in the headlights of this speeding car speeding is the only motion that lets the heart unravel and in the wind of the road the two story framed houses appear one after the other like some cinematic stage set... From these opening sentences of the book (in Into the Drift and Sawy), Wojnarowicz lets loose a salvo of explicit gay sexual reverie harshly lit by the New York cityscape: escapades in movie theaters and bus terminals, amid the ascent of AIDS and Wojnarowiczs own consciousness of the virus in himself and at large in the gay community.

New research published today in the journal Neurology concluded that poor sense of smell in adults is associated with greater risk of the disease. During the BSIT, individuals are asked to use a multiple choice format to identify 12 common odors, including lemon, gasoline, onion, and cinnamon. Individuals were separated into three groups based on their scores, representing poor, medium, and good sense of smell. Thirty of those individuals were Caucasian and 12 were African-American. Researchers discovered that people who did poorly on the scratch and sniff test were almost five times more likely to develop the disease than those with higher scores.

My husband spilled gas out of a spare gas tank into the back of my car., In fact, a lot of people enjoy the potentially noxious aroma, but why does the stink from the local station smell so pleasant to some of us and so nasty to others?

One of the most common reasons that you may smell gas in your car is that your vehicle has been exposed to gas fumes. Understand, however, that if your car is exposed to gas fumes, the aroma of gasoline should eventually fade. Gas leaks can occur almost anywhere in your gas system, which can sometimes make them hard to detect. The location of the leak will determine when you smell gas. In some cases, the vent hose connected to your fuel tank will leak, which will cause gas vapor to leak out of your fuel system.
