Bad breath meter

Is it safe to be near me?

You're getting self conscious. There's always that nagging doubt: do I have bad breath? Walk to the nearest pharmacy and buy your own halitosis detector. It's a device similar to a breathalyser, but instead of the measurement of your blood alcohol content you get your halitosis level checked:

1 - You smell like roses, baby

2 - There's something brewing

3 - Can I offer you a mint?

4 - Danger!

5 - Stand over there, against the wind and speak louder.

Schedule your visits to the dentist accordingly.

       How does it work?

       [mouseposture] Ah! I can see you're like a loaded spring, itching to cry magic.   

       It works through the detection and measurement of certain chemical by-products of bacteria activity. For instance, and just to name a few, hydrogen sulfide, methyl mercaptan, Allyl methyl sulfide, dimethyl sulfide, indole, skatole, polyamines. It would be an ultraportable version of an atmosphere effluvium analyser [link], fine tuned to the concentration levels expected to emanate from the oral cavity of a human being. Yes, the miracles of miniaturization.

       Do you sell a cream for that? [+]

       [pertinax] Sorry, can't help there.

       Itching, rather, to provide an answer, in case you didn't have one (but you did).   

       (Do springs itch?)
mouseposture, Jun 02 2011

       Yes, [mouseposture], springs itch. It's a known fact :-)
