It jostled the crucible and splashed the acid into my face and up into my nose. After a few months the damage was "healed", but the scar tissue left me so I have had no sense of smell since that day. I was wearing goggles, so I'm lucky I can still see.
So enjoy the wonderful smells of all the good things. It is a blessing, indeed.
I am sorry for you injury. But on the bright side, you could excel at plumbing or work in a morgue or a paper mill.

I shot so many groundhogs as a kid that I smell gunpowder when one is around. My weird Pavlovian response.

There's something about the smell of burnt nitromethane from a NOVI or Offy engine.
