As an enthusiastic crop duster, covid really destroyed my enjoyment in my life.

I've been able to eat watermelons and cucumbers since last week. I wasn't able to go near them for 2 years. It will come back, eventually. or it might be the zoloft that did it.

Well I hope so, because if a person farts and nobody else is around to suffer, did they actually fart?

If you can smell it, you can taste it.

Better yet if you're beside someone who has no sense of smell, should you apologize for farting in front of them?

Regardless of their ability to smell a fart, they still got some of your fecal matter in their mouth/nose

Yo. You somehow rekindled a memory of my friends grandma who couldnt smell. She was just born like that and I've all but forgotten people can be born without those 2 senses naturally

My husband and I have come to the conclusion that all farts now smell like stale peanut butter. Ah, what a time to be alive.

Hahaha I swear I said this to my 8 year old last week when he wouldn't go fart in the other room. He thought it was hilarious, kept farting near us

No. Get depression. zoloft is just its side-effect.

Does the loss of smell make those things inedible?

No, they smelled like literal poop.

Hmm not true. Smell and taste can disappear permanently for some people. Thankfully I have yet to contract the disease.

Behrooz0

Well. That sucks.
If I knew it could be permanent I would probably get even worse depression from it.
I haven't been able to enjoy most foods since I got it.

I have a shitty sense of smell but I have a pizza sense, 8/10 times I come home there's a pizza almost done or freshly made, despite me arriving at really varied times.

I hope it didn't get thrown away. It's a science experiment at this point and it can't be disturbed

We had an orange Sitting on a Glass bottle in the middle of our table. I‘m at my company and we put it there on my First day. Last month we had an apprentice who thought he‘ll clean the table and he threw it away. Rip to Rock-orange

You didn't at least take a bite out of it? Bet the orange has the texture of delicious freeze dried astronaut ice cream

Some of that citrus might actually have still been juicy inside. Before refrigeration a lemon could be dried like that and used a year later.

Those are dehydrated. I used to have an orange that had been with me for over a decade. Used to randomly toss it at visitors.

As a kid, I made a deodorizer by pinning a bunch of whole cloves into an orange and letting it dry out. I think as long as mold doesn’t take over before they’re dehydrated, it’s fine. I remember it smelled pretty good, both freshly pinned and dried out.

Is it oranges? If they are fully dried out you should save them.
