NYC Gas Leak?

If you're listening to the news, chances are they are talking about the gas leaks in NYC. Those of you who know me may also know that my roommate, aka, 'the doctor', is somewhat of a rocket scientist.

He said that a single bottle of mercaptan could cause all of Manhattan to stink like gas, seeing that gas only has one part per billion of mercaptan added to it.

Apparently a bad joke played on people at oil/gas refineries includes putting a drop of mercaptan on the engine block of a car... :-)
