Wasabi Fire Alarm

Those Japanese scientists have been up to some more inventive antics. This time they’ve made a fire alarm that wakes up deaf people with the smell of wasabi.

The green horseradish that people use to spice up their sushi has an intense odour, so in a concentrated form it must be something like mustard gas. Usually deaf folk have flashing lights when there’s a fire, but if you’re asleep under the covers it isn’t very effective. Meanwhile, the wasabi silent alarm woke up thirteen out of fourteen test subjects, (who presumably ran to the bathroom with watering eyes and agonized noses.) This remarkable device, made by the professors at Shiga Medical University, will be on the market in a few years and you can read about it on Inventor Spot.
Buyers had better be careful when you’re making sushi, though- Grandpa might get confused and jump out of the window!

    I LOVE that stuff!!
    I went to a place called “Kano Farms” where they grow that stuff and had it all kinds of ways.

    I got drunk and stuffed a meatball sized gob in my mouth and all the fluids above my neck instantly drained out my nose!! I was laughing and having a good ole time but i have not been invited back??

  2. roaf says:

    Haha- Sounds like Jackass!
    I’ve eaten wasabi ice cream before. Pretty good actually.

      Es eapuctacelsr. Yo me quedé de piedra cuando fuí a Shibuya a mi retorno a Tokyo y no estaban las luces de los paneles, todo bastante a oscuras.Eso sí la gente, la misma de siempre, a petar :PUn abrazo

    Blimey, nobody sleeps in Shizuoka then, the birthplace of wasabi!

  4. roaf says:

    Yeah that’s right. And I wonder what they are going to do if there is a fire in a wasabi factory?

  5. dragonlife says:

    As far as a fire in a wasabi “factory” is concerned, that would be a bit tricky as the “wasabi farms” are always located in altitude, between 1200 and 1500 metres in the case of Shizuoka. A fire truck would not make it anyway as the roads are really steep, narrow and winding! LOL

    Which reminds me of a silly incident that happened to me the year before last in November when I burned a batch of grass I had mown from our cricket ground. Someone somewhere had complained about my fire (which was in fact illegal). Suddenly an enormous fire truck materialized out of nowhere with half a dozen firemen scrambling out of it.
    Luckily, the man in charge happened to know one of our cricket members as his daughter was in the same class as my friend’s daughter. He calmly mentioned I was doing something wrong. I did apoligize profusely.
    But blimey, a fire truck for a small grass fire? A bit of an overkill, ain’t it?
    Later, I found out who called the fire department. It was not the first time. Apparently the bloke has nothing else to do but spy on everyone along the Abe River!

  6. roaf says:

    Ha! That’s a surreal image.
    There are nosy people like that in Kanagawa, too. In my first apartment in Fujisawa city, my room-mate accidentally dropped a single cigarette butt from the balcony on one occasion, and the neighbour called the police. I couldn’t believe it when two uniformed officers arrived to reprimand us. In London they would have arrested the neighbour for wasting police time!

  7. pear says:

    Reminds me of the old joke:

    Why do farts smell?
    So deaf people can enjoy them too.

  8. roaf says:

    That’s a good’un!

  9. funnyoldlife says:

    I hadn’t heard of these smoke alarms – very funny!

  12. Hiya. I noticed your site title, “Wasabi Fire Alarm Gaijin Tonic” does not really reflect the content of your
    web page. When creating your blog title, do you believe it’s best to write it for Website positioning or for your readers? This is one thing I’ve been
    struggling with because I want good search rankings but at
    the same time I want the best quality for my site visitors.

  13. I run a barbecuing blog where I share my recipes
    and tricks and tips that I learn coming from my numerous years
    of creating meals. I try really hard to enhance my blog more
    than thrice each week. I have had the blog for around 90 days, which I think is a fairly good amount of
    time. Still, my blog doesn’t get very many visits . When I look for my posts on Google, it is certainly hard for me to uncover them. I found your site on the 1st page of DuckDuckGo when i looked for Wasabi Fire Alarm Gaijin Tonic, therefore i believe you must be a very skilled, care to share some help and advice with me?

    Even if there are a fantastic variety of methods to improve semen volume, like penis enhancement exercises, nonetheless
