Deodorant Cannons

There’s a landfill on the outskirts of Beijing that’s causing citizen complaints due to the overwhelming odor. The Chinese government’s solution? Fragrance cannons to mask the stank.

Apparently they’re “based on Italian technology” – my guess would be that it’s from the New Jersey Research arm of the Axe Body Spray corporation.

    Personally, I always preferred the “Everything’s OK” alarm. It can’t be turned off, but it does break frequently.

    When i first heard about these deodorant cannons, I envisioned a big ass fan with about a hundred of those little rear view mirror air freshener trees hanging in front of it.

    “Well, this is great, I can’t smell the landfill anymore, but why does it all of a sudden smell like a new car around here?”

    I thought it would be like the overly flowery air freshener spray that some people use in their bathrooms. The kind that actually smells worse than human poo.

    It says the tech is actually Italian and German. Do you think they have these set up as a sort of reverse maginot line to counter france’s cheese?

    I’m sure that literally shooting what scientists would classify as “a god damn shitload” of particles into an already polluted skyline won’t hurt anything either. Way to be progressive, China.

    It’s actually ” a god damn shitton” a god damn shitload is 10^7 smidgens, which is two factors of ten lower than a god damn shitton.

    I prefer the “metric fuckton”, myself, which is comprised of a thousand metric fuckloads. A metric fuckload, of course, is the SI unit of measure approved by NIST.

    Or, if you’re British, the “Metric Effingtonne”.
