He Has the Grossest Job in the World!
George Preti has the grossest job in the world! He's an organic chemist who collects BO. No sh*t! Any foul stench that fumes off you - it's his job to catalog it.
“Body odors are not uniform,” Preti said. “Your hair smells different than your mouth, your mouth smells different than your armpit, your armpit smells different than your crotch, and your crotch smells different than your feet.”
What's weider? He likes it! He's hesitant to name a favorite body odor, although he's partial to 3-methyl-2-hexenoic acid. That is what causes that stink that creeps out from your sweaty underarms.
What advice does he have? The power of BO can not be underestimated. If your sneakers smell that bad, nothing will neutralize it. Just toss them out.
