The Oxford Dictionary defines a phobia as: An extreme or irrational fear of or aversion to something.

We DEFINITELY hit the irrational part right on the head. Not just for phobias.

NASA calibrates and certifies its sniffers’ noses every four months using a “10-bottle test” in which seven of the bottles have odors and three of them are blanks. The seven scents must be categorized as musky, floral, ethereal, camphoraceous, minty, pungent or putrid.”

Mmm…putrid.
