After seeing images from recent Tsunami in Asia and hundreds/thousands of human corpses lying all over the place, i just wonder how bad is stench of rotting dead bodies lying in warm climate like in Indonesia? Is it kind of like regular road kill or dead cow, or maybe the smell is specific only to us?
I have seen some incredibly gruesome pictures of victims from Tsunami on www.Ogrish.com, but I want to know what you guys can tell me on this.
Some of you might be attending medical schools, so I guess you know more.Thanks.

I've seen video of the liberation of the concentration camps after WWII. The stench is overpowering. That combined with the fact that its dead bodies you smell and people were vomiting and passing out all over the place.
