Apparently, it smells like rotten eggs.

    If the astro-nuts that go there checking the place out and  need fuel, that would make some dandy stuff for that purpose! It burns pretty good! :p

    Reminds me of the joke about what the Star Ship Enterprise and toilet paper have in comment.

    They both circle Uranus searching for Klingons.

    That particular gas is highly corrosive, which explains why men's underwear ends up with holes in a certain area. Thumbs up animated emoticon

    I have to wash a mans underwear. I honestly think that highly corrosive gas is the least of the issues lol. 

    Sometimes there are entrained solids that are expelled with the gas. Especially the Wed. after Taco Tuesday! :D

    No, you misunderstand. The solids are just flakes, call them asteroids stuck around Uranus that get blown loose by the explosive force of expelled gas. They collect sweat and make those unsightly 'skid marks'. :D And guys tend to scratch what itches, so it gets spread around. Guys can be gross, and the ladies have to deal with that, from time to time, on occasion, because guys are not all that fastidious by nature, mostly. :smile:

    H2So4 is some bad stuff. We dealt with it a lot and were trained to respond to it if released to the atmosphere. One thing we were taught, if you had reason to go into a cloud of it (Hydrogen Sulfide) for rescue or maybe to manipulate a valve or whatever, you must wear fresh air equipment, Scott Air Pack, hosed air whatever, you cannot hold your breath and enter an H2SO4 Cloud and hope to survive. It is heavier than air and will go down your into your lungs through your nose or mouth. Then you're dead and it doesn't take much. This is all dependent on the concentration. But a very little bit of it will kill you. And once the concentration reaches a certain level you can't smell it. It's some nasty stuff. Unless you had on supplied breathing air from some source you would never make it very far into Uranus's atmosphere. The moral of the story is "Don't go sniffing around Uranus!"

    Who would have thought it?

    There is a window of Parts Per Million where you can smell it. Below that level (.010) you can't smell it. Above 100 PPM you begin to lose sense of smell.

    Here's the skinny on it.

    https://www.osha.gov/SLTC/hydrogensulfide/hazards.html

    0.01-1.5

    Odor threshold (when rotten egg smell is first noticeable to some). Odor becomes more offensive at 3-5 ppm. Above 30 ppm, odor described as sweet or sickeningly sweet.

    2-5

    Prolonged exposure may cause nausea, tearing of the eyes, headaches or loss of sleep. Airway problems (bronchial constriction) in some asthma patients.

    20

    Possible fatigue, loss of appetite, headache, irritability, poor memory, dizziness.

    50-100

    Slight conjunctivitis ("gas eye") and respiratory tract irritation after 1 hour. May cause digestive upset and loss of appetite.

    100

    Coughing, eye irritation, loss of smell after 2-15 minutes (olfactory fatigue). Altered breathing, drowsiness after 15-30 minutes. Throat irritation after 1 hour. Gradual increase in severity of symptoms over several hours. Death may occur after 48 hours.

    100-150

    Loss of smell (olfactory fatigue or paralysis).

    200-300

    Marked conjunctivitis and respiratory tract irritation after 1 hour. Pulmonary edema may occur from prolonged exposure.

    500-700

    Staggering, collapse in 5 minutes. Serious damage to the eyes in 30 minutes. Death after 30-60 minutes.


    700-1000

    Rapid unconsciousness, "knockdown" or immediate collapse within 1 to 2 breaths, breathing stops, death within minutes.

    1000-2000

    Nearly instant death

     If you can smell it it probably won't kill you.

    Not real fast anyway.

    Don't know if its true, but a few years ago a guy in India supposedly died from his own farts............in a small room with plastic over the windows.................I do know you are what you eat is true (or at least smell like it)...........in Afghanistan there were these Islanders on base.........the port a johns they used you could smell from 25 feet away and it smelled just like the food they ate.

    Chief, Mierda is the real word for Poo in Spanish. CaCa is the crude form. The French word for the same is Mierd pronounced Mad with a short A or Merd in some circles, maybe depending on accent I guess. I'm no linguist but being raised in this part of Texas we're exposed to a lot of weird stuff language wise. In my youth (late teens and 20s I worked around a lot of cajuns We called 'em **** A... from Louisiana and learned all the wordy Dirds. I  thought I was a fairly international dude before I ever got on the plane. Well, I found out I really wasn't and leared a lot through the years, most of which I can't relay on here without a ban.
