In other news, after a study in Poland (where they smelled foul shirts that people wore for days while not showering), they now believe that you can detect a person's personality by their smell. Oh how sorry I am that I wasn't chosen to participate in that study. Wait, no I'm not. And if they had used my shirt, they would've known that I always smell like roses. Purple roses. And I think that means that I'm better than everyone else and I'm not narcissistic or neurotic at all.
We Can Determine Personality by Smell

(Newser) – You are what you reek? It turns out that we can tell a lot about someone's personality just by their smell, according to the New York Daily News. Sixty people in Poland wore the same T-shirt for three nights, and did not use soap, smoke, drink, or "eat odorous foods" during the study. Those shirts were then sniffed by 200 lucky volunteers, who were asked to judge the smells based on five personality traits, such as extroversion, neuroticism, and dominance.
The results weren't perfect, but the smellers' predictions about extroversion and neuroticism were about as accurate as those of raters who made their judgments after watching a video. MyHealthNewsDaily notes that the smell-testers did especially well in detecting dominance in members of the opposite sex.

More facts about mustard:
• Cooking food with mustard dramatically decreases the condiment’s pungency.
• Yellow mustard (a.k.a. regular mustard) is the most commonly used mustard in the U.S. The rest of the world calls it American mustard. It is a very mild mustard colored bright yellow due to the use of turmeric. It was introduced over 100 years ago in 1904 by George T. French who bet that Americans would prefer milder tasting mustard than what was available at the time.
• French’s website aggressively encourages people to opt for mustard as the condiment of choice because mayonnaise is full of fat, and ketchup is full of sugar.
