Sit Up and Smell the Roses 

A study McGill University indicates that our sense of smell is influenced by our body position: people lying down appear less sensitive to rose scents than they are when sitting or standing. Previous research has shown this distinction with other senses. What a weird thing: the only idea that pops into my head on this is that we sleep lying down, and we need our senses to be a bit less, erm, sensitive, then, so we can sleep. That doesn't even make much sense either from a survival perspective. Hmm.

Also, who wants to go see this exhibit with me?
