People line up to experience corpse flower that smells like a 'dead carcass'

People lined up for a corpse flower that bloomed in San Francisco. The fowl-smelling plant only blooms for a few days every seven to 10 years.

A flower that seems to have sprouted straight from hell and instead of bees pollinating it, it has flies. This is fascinating



David Attenborough has got to be the best narrator in several generations. He gave this mammoth of a plant it’s own personality and made it sound frighteningly powerful.




I once visited the US Botanic garden, where some of these were blooming.  I'm a farmer, and I've been around dead animals.  Even in the July heat.  So I know how rotting carcasses smell. But to say these flowers are "pungent" is an understatement.  One good whiff, and I almost lost my dinner.
