Ever eat asparagus then notice that your urine smells funny? If so, you're one of the people who can break down asparagus into it's particularly smelly parts, and who also have the olfactory receptors for detecting said smelly bits. I'm one of those people.
Recently, I've discovered another food that causes the same phenomenon: popcorn. I've found that if I eat a large bowl of popcorn, my urine will smell like popcorn the next day. Anyone else notice this in themselves?
