The day they first sold TVs with the capability to dispense odours, they sold more TVs then ever before. Linus was sitting at home after unpacking his new pleasure device for him and his family. They eagerly watched the first program, it was a news show, and it did not support smell yet. Disappointing start. “That stinks” his wife muttered with a broad grin. After impatiently skipping the non-smelly channels, a strong sense of being in nature struck him. It was as if the stank of their appartment had vanished and been replaced by a wooden aroma, a planty vibe, he almost felt the wind, but not quite. All of them looked pleased, the light of the huge new TV flickering on their faces, nobody averting their gaze. Linus’s daughter gave a loud uncontrolled “Ewww”, and the rest of the folks didn’t look happy either when the next channel came on. Just a guy walking through an alley in a new movie, the smell of garbage was penetrating their nostrils.
After fiddling around for a second Linus hastily dialed down the intesity via the remote. The following asian channel featured a guy in a white room, nothing going on. No smell for some reason. “They always were weird” his wife mumbeled while rolling her big eyes. Linus waited for a bit before switching the channel. “This is supposed to be a channel that supports smell, let’s give them a chance, maybe I did set the levels too low.” He turned it up to maximum.
They never again switched channels, their rotten corpses still sit there, watching the white room 5 month later. As was the rest of the population. The only guy alive was Yun Lee, sitting in his kitchen beside a white room with his dog. After all, Yun never did like humans.
