    Anyone saying no to this has an extremely different experience of life than I do. The only smells I ever notice are bad ones.

    No. My sense of taste would also be affected.
    How do you know it will be affected for the worse?

    Can't you think of a situation where being able to smell a bad smell would actually be advantageous?

    that sounds terrible

    you never smell something that takes you back 15 years and reminds you of a time, place or person?

    never smell Subway when you walk past it?

    never walk past a girl and get hit with the scent 2 seconds later?

    Nope, what if there was a gas leak, but since you couldn't smell it, there was no way to react to it and you end up just getting blown up. Unlikely but still possible. Then what, huh?

    The vast majority of cases no. The few where it would be useful are not worth £800,000

    ??? That doesn't answer the question at all.

    How do you know your taste would be affected negatively as opposed to just different to now.

    No, never.

    Not Subway no. Some places yes, especially things like freshly baked bread, but not worth £800,000 but a long shot.

    never walk past a girl and get hit with the scent 2 seconds later?
    No, never.

    How you meant to sell it?
    Is there an operation?
    Will there be pain once taken away?
    You know your taste will be gone too if your sense of smell is gone...
    Sense of smell is worth 800k?! What it gonna be used for?
    Or is it a some kind of "sick" experiment just to see people suffer?
    Who the Fk came up with this question LOL!

    1. a genie carries out the transaction.

    2. there is no operation.

    3. no. you just have no sense of smell.

    4. no. you just have no sense of smell. you retain your sense of taste.

    5. the sense of smell isn't gonna be used for anything. you can consider it destroyed. the 800k can be used for whatever you want. the only thing you can't do it attempt to obtain another sense of smell (as if that was possible, let's be realistic).

    6. no..

    7. yours truly

    Good Luck with that mate, possibilities of that occurring is very low even if you got the determination.
