Mass hysteria. This happens occasionally - usually in an office building with some odor. Usually women. (Sorry, ladies.)

Teddy Kennedy was in New Jersey again?!!!

I can't believe he would go slumming there, but then there are lots of bridges and water there.

Maybe he has an "inconvenient girlfriend".

Get out the neck brace.

And a gem of an article too. Was it gasoline or (natural) gas? The odor is quite different yet the author / editor uses the terms seemingly interchangeably.

It is real. Very real.

This one though is not real. Look at the reflection of the lighter on the closet door and then when they light the flame, someone shines a flashlight on the door in the opposide direction (not synchronized to the appearance of the flame) to simulate the reflection of the flame.

Reminds me of an old George Carlin stand-up special.

He said he had a T-shirt made up that said:

"Kiss her where it smells.....take her to New Jersey"!!

No kidding. I used to work haz waste emergency response. Someone (with perhaps vengeance in mind) went to a city govt billing office (can't remember water or something)and unleashed one of those hydrogen sulfide stink bombs. At least ten women claimed respiratory problems and went to the hospital followed by timeoff (worker's comp etc). I measured the levels at 10 ppm. Could not have hurt a canary.
