I had a pet mouse die in the heating ducts once... if it smelled remotely close to that I am SO SORRY.


Good lord. I've seen too many horror movies that begin like this.

Nothing like the smell of death in the morning.

I'm pretty sure your neighbor has been dead a a little than you think...

#52 - That's the FML. The neighbor's been dead for quite a while and finally the smell of decay reached him.

**** the dead persons life. Nobody noticed this guy died, no friends or family? poor guy.

71, At least he's dead now, so he's released from whatever troubles he had in life. Maybe his life sucked, seeing as how no one noticed he passed away, but finally, it doesn't matter anymore.

ZOMBIES!!!!!! Careful OP they play dead.

I feel bad for your neighbor I wonder who did his funeral. No one even noticed he passed away. FYL OP because the smell is gross .

Hopefully he doesn't haunt the place

I love how you all assume the dead guy had no friends or family. Immediately after death the body begins to break down and everything gets released. It doesn't take long to start smelling horrendous. Also, it's pretty normal to go a day or two without seeing friends/family. Try to think before getting so sentimental.

I don't think a shower would help the smell of decomposing flesh.

Or the shit the bowels loosened when he died...

I have a really hard time believing this fml. It seems so fake.

Well unless you have a fetish for the smell of dead corpse. Then no.

I didn't just get turned on, I didn't just get turned on, I didn't just get turned on.

Don't fight it iAmScrubs, because evidently, I think we all got turned on!

No that was not sarcasm. It was a question. Example of sarcasm? "I bet it smelled wonderful!"

30, they apparently think they're funny.

Why is 117 thumbed down?? I thought it was a way better comment then a bunch of whats being put out there.

Cause of death: heartattack of too much ************

Number 5, cause of failure: making a personal reference in a 'joke'.

5, that could happen!? I love fishing though! I didn't know I could die doing it. Thanks for the tip... I'll go spearing instead.

In what way does a heart problem relate to masturbation?

Bloods involved if your a guy Plus your pulse goes up i believe

I don't think time would be the thing in their hands

Why has this got thumbs down.. It's the right thing to do.

That's is f**king gross. How has no one noticed he was gone yet.

desireev 17

Somebody did notice. They could smell him. And he wasn't gone. He was there. That's how the abundant smell of death got into OPs apartment. Just stating the obvious.

ShroomsOnAcid 16

He meant "gone" as in "dead".

(As an addition to 80's comment) Just stating the obvious.

Ouch. Though, due to laws of physics, how did that happen? The smell wouldn't be going up naturally, it would be going down...he must be about a week old. FYL.

Ouch. If your physics teacher taught you these laws, naturally you should change your teacher or subject. FYL.

I know! He's probably one of those stupid ***** who pulls shot out of their ass to sound smart. He's probably never taken a physics class in his life

Law of diffusion = chemistry. Decay & death = biology. Not really much physics involved.

ShroomsOnAcid 16

Actually, 75, physics deals with the motion of matter, which is what 10 was referencing, albeit incorrectly.

Well, I suppose you can say Biology is applied Chemistry, and Chemistry is applied Physics.

When someone passes away their body can start to smell really quickly. I'm a nurse and have seen alot of death. I'm sorry OP, I hope you weren't close to your neighbor because that's really sad. Sounds like they died alone :(

Actually, it would be diffusion and therefore go everywhere there is air..
