I am building a catalog of tools and equipment to better ease us through our days—as we live amongst those who just don’t “get” us, want to “get” us, or even notice us as needing to be “gotten”.
On top of the list of regular disturbances to be eased is sifting through all the bullshit that comes out of people’s mouths. Going without those biting mental anthills would be great! What I propose is this: a “passive bullshit detector”. Wouldn’t that be fantastic?! These detectors would come in many different forms: wall mounts, desk art, paperweights, and those clips that latch into a car air louvers. From fruits to florals, many different fragrance cartridges would be available.
When bullshit is sensed, a pleasant scent would release into the air. The scented spray announces the whiff of fabricated nonsense is in the air. The owner of this detector could confidently relax knowing that, “yes,” she just experienced the inconvenience of predatory, fecal balderdash. No more guessing!
Think of how much better your environment would smell. Overwhelmingly so.
