    Has anyone here ever smelled what I call "the knock out smell"? Its when you hit your head really hard (or someone hits you in the head really hard) and right around the time you see stars you also smell this odd smell. It's like gunpowder...kinda. Anyone? [img]smilies/confused.gif[/img]

    I gotta say I've taken my share of blows to the head (like no shit huh [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]?) and I've never had that smell you described DG. Just the smell of blood and birds. I'll pay attention more next time...if possible. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Depending on how long between realising your GONNA cop a hit, and when it actually lands, it could well be the smell of you shitting yourself though [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    They say when you have a stroke, or a brain lesion you can smell some wierd shit, but I've never heard of it from a knock in the head.

    Maybe you confused smell with taste? When someone gets the living shit hit out of them, they can end up tasting their fillings in their teeth. Maybe you had a filling knocked loose or something? I hope you weren't asking because you were hit just recently. Out.

    WARNING! SCIENCE-BABBLE!

    I suppose the act of a smell sensation from a blow to the head is entirely possible. Sensation, and to an extent, memory is just the result of electrical stimulus through the nerve passages of the brain. A strong blow will usually cause the brain to move in the fluid inside the skull, knocking it into the skull's outer wall. Such a point of contact, assuming it is on the precise location of the brain, could cause the "smelling" of something that is not really there.

    I think you're whacked, I've never heard that before.

    I was only kidding about that headboard thing, it wasn't *that* kind of smell.

    I am always thwackin my head on one thing or another, and was known to be quite a scrapper back in the day.

    I don't recall shitting myself or losing any fillings as a result, so I don't think that's it. And I sure hope I don't have a brain lesion, that would certainly suck.


    Maybe I'll go see my doctor next time it happens. I'm just afraid he is going to make me wear my helmet 24/7.
