At least 500 students and teaches from Melbourne University in Australia evacuated the school because they thought they smelled gas. It turned out that it was just rotten durian. It was left in a library cupboard and firefighters say that the smell moved through the building’s air conditioning system. Durian is a tropical fruit know for its strong stinky smell.  It is the size of  a coconut with green spikes on the outside but it is soft on the inside. The Smithsonian magazine described it as, “Turpentine and Onions garnished with a gym sock.” The Melbourne University and areas around it are now open to everybody and it was all just one big false alarm.
