Take your pick .... How about England 1 - Brazil 2 (round about June 2002)? Timeline's about right.sheddy said:'discovered on a sofa'
Mmm, I wonder what sporting final was lost by England, 5 years ago ?

F***. That's nasty.Pete said:I vaguely recall hearing a tale many years earlier. Concerned a friend of a friend. Not funny. This was a young couple with two small kids, went to have lunch with a relative (I think it was the dad's sister or something like that). Anyway, they'd phoned the day before to confirm, no reply, decided to go anyway. No answer to the door: luckily the husband told his wife to take the kids and wait in the car. Then he broke down the door. His sister was hanging in the stairwell. She'd been there over a week. OK, not five years, but very nasty all the same. Suicide, coroner's verdict.
Depends on the conditions. If the smell was only noticed after 5 years, I suspect that decomposition had been delayed for some reason - perhaps the room was very cold, or very dry, and sealed well enough that flies (and hence maggots) had been excluded and the body had part mummified, then a change in conditions years later set decomposition going.bonj said:how decomposed would he have got? Would he have been no more than a skeleton, or would he have been recognisable?
That was my thought.Bigtallfatbloke said:Don't laugh at this poor chap...it's a terrible example of how our society alienates mental health sufferers...
Roadkill is the typical cyclist's experience of what that smell must be like - in smaller doses. In summer, all too often, when I pass a dead fox or badger - one that's been there a week or so - and I can smell it fifty yards off ....Arch said:A dry skeleton wouldn't smell all that much - the really smelly stages are fairly early on in decomposition, from what I understand.

A glimmer. A soul turning. A butterfly in spring....
