The smell of creosote (no idea if this is a thing in America as well, now illegal carcinogenic wood preserver thing) is my childhood one, along with the smell of many coal fires burning.

Unrelated and not really suitable for thread but I've often wondered if other large scale sporting events worldwide have quite the same aroma of mingled sweat, aftershave, farts and pies that British football does


I think you'd have to replace pies with hot dogs over here.
But other than that it's close?

Reminiscing about creosote has also randomly brought back a memory of Reverend Jim in Taxi unexpectedly knowing stuff about Brazil [emoji38]

Hadn't thought about Taxi in years until I saw your post and it hit me. Those opening bars of the theme are like freebasing nostalgia :lol:

:lol: One of the hardest laughs in my life is when Jim burned down Danny Devito's apartment. Whatshisname comes in and reacts to the devastation like "Oh my god!" and Jim waits a second and says "So it's noticeable!?"

f***ing brilliant.

I mean, I have no frame of reference for relative intensities since I've never been to a game over there. But all the major notes are definitely present.

Sure, we all shower in the morning, but showering or a bath before slipping into bed. Damn, that's something.

A freshly creosoted fence is a delightful smell.

Something similar, the smell of paraffin oil.   
You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger.
We ourselves are responsible for our own happiness and misery. We create our own Heaven. We create our own Hell. We are the architects of our own fate.
Student says " I am very discouraged. What should I do?" Master says, "encourage others."
We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world.
It takes a wise man to learn from his mistakes, but an even wiser man to learn from others.
This is what should be done. By one who is skilled in goodness, and who knows the path of peace: Let them be able and upright, straightforward and gentle in speech. Humble and not conceited, contented and easily satisfied. Unburdened with duties and frugal in their ways. Peaceful and calm, and wise and skillful, not proud and demanding in nature. Let them not do the slightest thing that the wise would later reprove.
