Brine lakes exist at the bottom of the ocean. It is heavier than water and extremely toxic, since there are many chemicals such as hydrogen sulfide and methane in it. amusingplanet.com/2018/11…
Today I learned of a lake in West Papua, Indonesia that is filled with jellyfish. These jellyfish have such a minor sting that tourists visiting the island can swim among the jellyfish without any protection. The lake also has a toxic hydrogen sulfide layer that prevents deep diving activities. nationalgeographic.com/ne…
Smelling hydrogen sulfide (AKA farts) is good for your health, as a study conducted by the University of Exeter in the United Kingdom and University of Texas says. healthline.com/health/dig…
Gases produced from most foods are actually odorless. But certain foods result in the formation of sulfur-containing gases like hydrogen sulfide and ammonia, so when it builds up in the colon and eventually gets released, the result can carry a rotten egg-like odor. menshealth.com/health/a19…
Uranus smells like farts because its atmosphere consists largely of hydrogen sulfide. mentalfloss.com/article/5…
Hydrogen sulfide, the gas that gives flatulence its repulsive smell, can help reduce the risk of heart attack, stroke, cancer and help stave off dementia nypost.com/2017/10/27/sni…
Inhaling very high concentrations of hydrogen sulfide leads to instant death. In 2008, this caused a suicide craze in Japan. ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/arti…
Today I learned that smelling farts is healthy; hydrogen sulfide, which farts are mostly composed of, can help prevent heart diseases and even kidney failure healthline.com/health/dig…
Today I learned about the "Century Egg", a duck, chicken, or quail egg that is preserved in a mixture of clay, ash, salt, quicklime, and rice hulls for several weeks to several months. This gives the yolk a dark black color and a strong flavor due to hydrogen sulfide and ammonia. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cen…
Today I learned of k. polythalamia, a mollusk known for living in elephant-tusk-like structures of calcium carbonate that can be absorbed to grow longer and burrow deeper. Instead of eating they sift mud for hydrogen sulfide to feed bacteria growing in their gills which produce carbon compounds to feed the worm en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shi…
So many farmers have died from exposure to the hydrogen sulfide in manure that scientists started calling it β€œdung lung”. weirduniverse.net/blog/co…
There are three main fart smells. Hydrogen sulfide produces the signature "rotten eggs" note, methanethiol produces hints of "decomposing vegetables," and dimethyl sulfide adds a hint of "sweetness." realclearscience.com/blog…
Tubeworms turn toxic water into food. The bacteria inside the worms use the toxic hydrogen sulfide in the water, which would kill most other animals, as an energy source to produce carbohydrates. businessinsider.com/these…
FOOF, an extremely dangerous chemical, reacts with almost anything and at temperatures as low as -180 C (-300 F), and releases a massive 433 KCal of energy per mole when reacting with hydrogen sulfide (H2S). blogs.sciencemag.org/pipe…
Today I learned of "Afterdamp" - a toxic mixture of gases such as Hydrogen sulfide left in a mine following an explosion. the "canary in the coalmine" was used to to detect afterdamp as they are more sensitive to the gas than humans. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aft…
There are underwater rivers on the ocean floor of hydrogen sulfide and brine water that flow separately from the ocean around them. cracked.com/article_19557…
The hydrogen sulfide contained in farts reacts with silver, which causes the silver to tarnish. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sil…
Hydrogen Sulfide Gas (H2S) kills your sense of smell if inhaled in large quantities. osha.gov/OshDoc/data_Hurr…
Due to a gas called hydrogen sulfide, human farts are a slightly poisonous. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyd…
Underwater rivers actually exist. A mix of salt water and hydrogen sulfide causes the water to have a higher density than regular salt water. cracked.com/article_19557…
There is a life form on earth that "breathes" hydrogen sulfide gas and excretes sulfuric acid. It is called a "Snotite". en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sno…
Mice can be put into suspended animation with hydrogen sulfide and that the clinical trials on humans started in 2008. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyd…
Life has been found living underground, miles beneath the surface. These novel, newly-discovered microscopic organisms live off of rock-derived hydrogen and sulfide without oxygen or sunlight. nmt.edu/biology-prof-prob…
In 2006 the Probo Koala, a Greek waste vessel, attempted to dispose hydrogen sulfide in Amsterdam, but after being denied access, it disposed the highly toxic waste in over 14 dump sites in the poor suburbs of Ivory Coast. Many sites were near fields growing food or near water supplies. wsws.org/en/articles/2006…
, Scientists studying early mass extinctions caused by Hydrogen Sulfide have contributed to breakthroughs in the science of suspended animation that has the potential to be used on humans. wired.com/business/2010/0…
Bearded Goby fish thrive in toxic waters which both lack oxygen and contain large amounts of hydrogen sulfide. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suf…
It is hydrogen sulfide that makes farts smell and not methane... uk.askmen.com/sports/heal…
Today I learned about Snottites, bacteria that breathe hydrogen sulfide and excrete sulfuric acid. They look like loogies. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sno…
