Was watching the linked video about urban legends that had some basis in fact. ( Or some very similar true news story.) Dead bodies were everywhere. in trees, in pools, in cisterns, under beds.
Many of the stories are about dead bodies not being recognized as such. I woke up with an overwhelming
urge to find dead people.
There must already be corpse detection devices. But I bet no one has thought to add them to House Arrest Anklet Monitor.
SO why not a House Arrest Ankle Monitor - Dead Body Detector Add On. Are not these petty criminals just the sort to stumble across dead bodies ? or become dead themselves ? Would it not tend to keep other gang members from stopping by for a chat at least if they have a package rolled in a carpet in the trunk of the car.
I wonder how much a corpse sniffing detector costs ?
I remember reading ants of maybe bees do this. If you put a live ant covered with dead ant juice in he colony, It will get dragged to the bone yard repeatedly until the smell dissipates.
Surely we have senses as good as ants.
Inspiration for something.
