chained_bear commented on the word asparagusic acid
I haven't thought enough about this to determine whether I have the gene in question, but I can say one thing: wee really does smell like wee.

jennaren, consumption of asparagus lends a distinct (and strong, as dontcry points out) odor to the eater's urine. But it turns out that only a sizable minority of human beans can smell it...

I can detect it from a mile away. Not bragging, just saying. It would be wrong to brag about one's genes.

The question remains: huh?
S2(CH2)2CHCO2H "may be the metabolic precursor to other odorous thiol compounds," Wikipedia tells us.Elsewhere, she informs us that only about two in five of us can sense the odoriferous effects of consuming the phalliform shoot. If you can't, it's not your fault; it's genetic.
