Map of the Week-Where's that smell coming from?

Those of you who read Japan Probe regularly were treated to the following article last month entitled "Japanese site tracks stinky areas using Google Maps"

"Odor-obsessed weirdos in Japan now have a place to hang out on the net: The site allows users to sign up and enter reports of odors they encounter, tracking the stinky locations using markers on Google Maps.

A few examples: watermelon smell, ferret odor, old lady stench(”grandma smell”), gasoline fumes, and curry."

Here are maps of that Watermelon smell in case you wish to avoid it.

Apparently there's also a watermelon stink emanating from Maryville, Missouri (Phillips Hall, NW Missouri State University) - if my translation is correct.

At last, a way to dodge those watermelon stenches.

Also, bitchin' masthead!
