What about before? Sometimes I can 'smell' rain before it actually rains, depending how much rainclouds there are and stuff, so I close the windows before the rain starts falling. And then I tell my cat I can tell the future when it rains...Not that she responds. ^_^

Superhero Profile:

Balec can erase the memories of others. He has the powers and talents of a gorilla, but only for five minutes at a time. Balec is protected by an adamantium-like hide and can transform any sloth into air, and can transform kevlar into ice. Balec has been known to absorb the damage from energy-based attacks and redirect it against any combatant in sight. He can tunnel through solid plastic, but doing so drains his endurance for one hour. Balec is able to view distant locations with his mind.
He can force creatures to freeze in place and can become tiny. Sadly, Balec becomes ugly in the presence of silver, and struggles with being unable to smell.

LOL I would guess it's basically the same smell, so you can use the same word. (And if somebody actually corrects you, then they deserve to be Vocabulary Queen of the Century.) XD

It's not really a new word to me as I've heard it before, but I've actually used this one twice today for some strange reason: Eclectic.

eclectic definition wrote:
1. selecting or choosing from various sources.
2. made up of what is selected from different sources.
3. not following any one system, as of philosophy, medicine, etc., but selecting and using what are considered the best elements of all systems.
