"They make paper. Money is paper. That's the smell of money around here." Makes a certain backhanded sense to celebrate it because it means jobs for the locals.
There's a kraft mill about 20 miles south of here. Driving past it is like going back to my childhood.

Turns out that there are two genes involved in the story. The first gene regulates whether asparagus makes your urine stink or not, and the second one regulates whether you can smell it.
So, for some people, asparagus does not make their urine stink. For others, it does, but they can't smell it. Unfortunately for me, it does make my urine stink and I can smell it. As a result, I don't eat asparagus at all anymore.
