As can be seen here, pretty much all the water that Stinkographer 2 had added on his previous visit had evaporated. I immediately remedied the situation. After spraying the plate for about a minute with my shirt covering my nose and mouth, I became frustrated with how slowly the water was being dispensed. I wanted to make sure the meat was good and wet, but the smell was unbearable! So I removed the nozzle, raised the bottle and completely emptied its contents over the plate. Above was the photo I took immediately before adding water...
...this is the photo I took immediately after.
Ok, so I went a bit overboard. I quickly learned the error of my ways, for as I stood there snapping photos, it suddenly ocurred to me that my head was wet. I stepped back and looked around, then came to the horrifying realization that the plate had become saturated and overflowed! The resulting au jus had made its way to the edges of the tile, and was now raining down onto the floor, the bench--and me! It took every bit strength in me not to puke my stomach out. It's a good thing I brought a towel, for I didn't wait to get home to shower.
On the bright side, I'm pretty sure adding this much water will bring the stench to a whole new level. I must admit, it's becoming quite difficult to approach the meat. Each opening of the ceiling tile unleashed a more powerful blast of vile meat miasma. As the days pass, the meat is actually starting to smell more and more like vomit... which I guess is reasonable considering your stomach basically accelerates the decomposition we're observing here. However, this is far worse than any vomit a living being can produce. Right now I'd rate the stench an 9 out of 10 at point-blank range, though the raunchiness is really beginning to overtake the entire bathroom.
The chicken has clearly become the most interesting of the five meats, so I decided to zoom in on it from a couple of different perspectives.
The giblet sack, which seems to be working 'round the clock in its campaign to annex the pork's territory, can be seen particularly well here. If you look closely, it is possible to observe the little entrails housed inside their plastic cocoon, waiting patiently for the opportunity to spew fourth onto the surrounding meats.
The rest of the chicken is also quite captivating. I think it's making a conscious effort to attain all the colors of the rainbow. Right now I see red, orange, yellow, some green, a touch of violet, and black and white. If part of it becomes blue I'll be really impressed.
An eye-level view. The giblet sack is really quite imposing... right now it's probably taking up more space than the cat food ever did. I'm a bit scared of it.
At this point, I really have to consider every new day that the meat is still present to be a blessing. Its stench absolutely unignorable upon entering the room. We'll keep our fingers crossed!
