Forgive me if I'm wrong, but ammonia? Odorless? I would, in the least, say that ammonia has a strong odor. Of course, P&P may have different baselines than Crime Busters, but I'm just in shock to see that on here.

I still smell ammonia on my Chem Lab goggles (I think it's in my head...) ever since we worked with it three months ago. There is no way in the universe that ammonia is odorless.

Why would an atom more likely attract to fluorine than any other element?

Some random organism questions:
1. Which one of the organisms can also be called “Chinese Mandrake”?
2. Are the tadpoles of the cane toad toxic?
3. What kind of toxin ones the brown recluse spider have?
