*snicker-snarlfle!* I have a friend (yes still) who once threatened to let me walk home if I ordered any Durian pearl drinks in future. I countered that he has a convertible. He said that is right, but the Durian smell was in his convertible for like a week. And that was after he aired the car out for that entire period. He compares the smell to "a combination of open sewer and stagnant water with a wiff of decaying somethings." I said that it's just an intense rich smell. He just groaned, "Ya gotaa be frikkin' kiddin' me! That stuff should qualify as a biological weapon!"

ROTFLMAO Oh that is just libelous conspiracy theorizing from the Fringe Science lunatics! BTW it is quite funny to google how many active Durian fruit fansites/blogs there are! -- Hanuman Zhang "He who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe is as good as dead; his eyes are closed." - Albert Einstein
