“Governor, sports betting and weed aren’t as different as you might think. Clearly gaming is your thing. It’s cool. So here’s what I’d like for you to do: why don’t you just think of using marijuana as betting you’re going to have a better day.”—Jon Stewart (talking about Gov. Christie going against federal laws regarding sports betting but not going against federal laws regarding marijuana)
Geosmin is an organic compound with the formula C12H22O. It’s produced by several classes of microbes, including cyanobacteria (blue-green algae) and actinobacteria (especially Streptomyces), and released when these microbes die. The human nose is extremely sensitive to geosmin and is able to detect it at concentrations as low as 5 parts per trillion.
