The ‘Simon Tatham Has No Sense Of Smell’ FAQ

I have no sense of smell. When people find this out, they always tend to ask me the same questions. The standard geek response to this situation is to write a FAQ, so here one is.

Of course, most people who find out I have no sense of smell are talking to me in person at the time, so they won’t have the chance to read this FAQ before they start asking me questions about it; so I don’t expect this FAQ to be very useful in cutting down the number of times I get asked these questions. But I enjoyed writing it, and hopefully people browsing my web site might enjoy reading it, so never mind.

This FAQ is about me, Simon Tatham. I don’t claim to speak for everybody with this condition. Other people with no sense of smell might find that their own answers to some of these questions aren’t the same as mine. If so, I’d be fascinated to hear from them!

Russian GMail Art

A video that Saatchi Moscow created and produced for Google to attract more Russian people on GMail. Not easy but it was fun though.

One computer even had a Wi-Fi card installed, enabling our agent to surf the web. Enjoy the videos first and then go behind the scenes with our photo report below.

WFMU’s Profile of the Oscar Streaker

Turns out he was murdered in 1979 by drug dealers. (NSFW)

Robert Opel (sometimes Opal) was born completely naked on October 23rd, 1939. He was thirty-three years old when he crashed the gate of the Oscars. Moustached, long-haired, flashing the peace sign – he was a member of the fleeting Los Angeles hippy scene and a key figure in the burgeoning gay liberation movement of the early nineteen seventies. Opel was a mover and a shaker (spare me your obvious jokes) in underground art movements on both coasts. His Oscar stunt gave him immense publicity and in art circles, strange as it might seem, a significant amount of credibility.

Opel’s streaking tendencies had started several months prior to the Oscar ceremonies. He had appeared naked, on more than one occasion, at Los Angeles City Council meetings. The purpose was to protest the City Council’s plan to place a ban on nudity at local beaches. He stood with his balls strategically swaying in front of the seated Los Angeles Police Chief Ed Davis’ face. “I thought the Council should see what an actual nude person looks like,” he said. When he appeared at his court trial after being arrested for the display, he showed up dressed as Uncle Sam. He was sentenced to four months in prison for public lewdness (later diminished to probation). A 1979 San Francisco Chronicle profile spoke of his advocacy for “sexual freedom.” The article stated, “He wanted people to be absolutely free sexually … He saw sexual repression everywhere. And he believed it was politically motivated …”

Jimmy Kimmel’s Response to Matt Damon and Sarah Silverman

Daily Dose of Ingersoll


And yet, I must say — I must admit — that the Old Testament
is better than the New. In the Old Testament, when God had a man
dead, he let him alone. When he saw him quietly in his grave he was
satisfied. The muscles relaxed, and the frown gave place to a
smile. But in the New Testament the trouble commences at death. In
the New Testament God is to wreak his revenge forever and ever. It
was reserved for one who said, “Love your enemies,” to tear asunder
the veil between time and eternity and fix the horrified gaze of
man upon the gulfs of eternal fire. The New Testament is just as
much worse than the Old, as hell is worse than sleep; just as much
worse, as infinite cruelty is worse than dreamless dust; and yet,
the New Testament is claimed to be a gospel of love and peace.
