This is really bizarre. I just took a hard disk out of my friend Sarah's old computer, and the drive smells like body odor! It's the sort of stench that is hard to wash off. Sarah is from Hawaii, and it is both humid and warm in Hawaii. I can only speculate that the heat and moisture helped bacteria to grow inside the computer, and that the sort of bacteria that grew there was a similar type to those that give body odor its smell...? There was speculation during dinner that the colony most likely was seeded by her ex-boyfriend. :)
Whatever the reason, it was really gross.
