I just read a brief article on Unknowncountry.com about a sulfur/rotten egg smell that's experienced with alien encounters.


Now scientists have learned that that hydrogen sulfide, which produces this odor, can alter consciousness without causing physical harm, by causing a state of suspended animation


Well the reason this interests me, is because for a few years during my life I smelt a sulfur/rotten egg smell almost every day. It would just appear out of no where, and strangely enough would seem to follow me around the house. The smell would disappear as fast as it appeared... it seemed as if it were a cloaked entity who's presense was only noticeable by the putrid smell.

Also...


When mice breathed the gas, they went into a hibernation- like state. Their activity level fell dramatically, and they moved only when the researchers touched them or shook their cages. After the mice returned to breathing normal air, they quickly returned to normal.


So perhaps the abductors use a scent to "calm down" their victims? Though I don't remember a calming effect at all when that smell was present.

I don't recall ever being abducted, so normally I'd go with a more down-to-earth explanation, but the fact that only myself, my parents, and an aunt and uncle could smell it was particularly strange. It wasn't like a fleeting scent... it was an overpowering nasty smell. I mean you couldn't miss it, but almost everyone who came over couldn't smell it.

This happened when I lived with my family in Arkansas. We've all since moved to Missouri. Though when I lived in AR, I also saw about 8 UFOs, though nothing significant (ie. no up close encounters).

Sooooo, here I am years later still trying to figure it out.

It could be natural, demon, alien, or something else. Honestly I lean more towards the alien scenario since that smell is often linked to abduction.

Thoughts?

sounds like sewer gas to me.
We have a problem in my house now and again and you can smell it in all sorts of places depending on draughts central heating and stuff.
Get the drains cleared first!
Remember usually the simplest explanation is the real one.

When I was in college, the steam room at the phys ed center had an almost unbearable rotten egg smell. It was due to the high sulphur content of the well water piped in to make the steam. You could get used to it and after about 10 minutes it was tolerable. But >whew< it was ripe. Never noticed it altering conciousness, though.

It's particularly strange that not everyone at your place could smell it. Any chance (grasping here) that other people were just used to the smell and didn't notice it?

Symptoms of sewer gas would seem to be in line with this.
Could be dangerous so get it checked out !!!

We had a 4th of July party once with all sorts of people in the house and no one but myself and my parents could smell it. While we were gasping for a breath of fresh air everyone else was just fine. So unless certain types of people don't have the proper receptors in their nose to pick up the smell, I'd go with a more 'paranormal' explanation.

Still get it checked out so you can at least rule this explanation out.
I'm willing to beleive you but you must cancel out the simplest explanations first.

Well I can't check it out... myself and my family have moved since then. But the smell did go away after a while. I just find it interesting how such a smell is associated with abduction reports. Still, had I been abducted I think I'd remember something.

sorry ! I didn't realise you had moved.
Interesting story though.
I didnt mean to sound dismissive - the sewer gas problem I had made us really ill !
Just concerned for you and trying to help.

Rotten egg smell is usually associated with a natural gas leak, so don't strike a match.

Yea, I experience it sometimes when I eat too much eggs. And dont strike a match, it will singe your hairs.

Hydrogen sulfide numbs out the nose fairly quickly and you can no longer smell it.

High concentrations can be dangerous.

Maybe you have alien contact. If you do, it's lifelong.

Some of my alien contacts have an odor to their presence but it's not overpowering, just unmistakable, and sort of like burned crayons.

Also, just because a human has alien contact doesn't mean he's ABDUCTED. You can have alien contact all your life and never even know it. You can visit alien crafts by your own free will and learn some pretty great things about the alien races and what they are trying to help humanity with.

"Aliens" and "Abduction" are not synonyms. That is just advertising by the disinformation campaign to keep you away from learning the truth from the alien races.

It may have been in your house water and what you were smelling was your own breath from prolonged ingestion of this water. This would account for the smell following you.

Do you happen to work closely with President Bush?


Chavez Addresses the UN...

Yesterday, the devil came here. Right here. Right here. And it smells of sulfur still today, this table that I am now standing in front of.

Yesterday, ladies and gentlemen, from this rostrum, the president of the United States, the gentleman to whom I refer as the devil, came here, talking as if he owned the world. Truly. As the owner of the world.

Most of you are forgetting or ignoring the strangest aspect of this particular smell which I've already mentioned at least twice.

Only a few family members could smell it. And no it wasn't me. Just because I lived in Arkansas for a few years doesn't mean I didn't shower.
I grew up in SoCal thank you very much.

If only a few family members ingested more water than others then only a few would smell it on their own breath. It may even be a food that only certain family members will eat, such as leaks for example.

Hot springs exist in both SoCal and Arkansas. Latent volcanic activity below the surface heats up water for hot springs. Sulfer is almost always in areas of such activity, and the odor is often released as a result. If it's far away, it might only be smelled by the occasional strong wind or wind coming from an abnormal direction (either could be the case if a vent suddenly spewed, rapidly changing the surrounding air temperature). The end result would be only a few observant people, outside, at the right moment, would smell the sulfer.

Also, I know at least in eastern Oklahoma (which borders western Arkansas) the ground is HEAVILY infused with sulfer, to the point it has corrupted the water table and many lakes.

Has anyone noted that auto catalytic converters have the same smell? Ain't saying that is the answer, but it does have the same smell, plus the older ones more than the current ones.

Maybe other people could smell it and denied it to be curteous. I myself used to have a friend whose house smelled of burning cats and I never said a word even when he asked if I smelled something...

Edit* i is a gewd spelluhr
