98 Mustang Randomly loses power w/ gas smell

So when I’m driving around, and specifically when it’s humid as I’ve noticed, my car will randomly lose power and when at a constant speed, start lurching back and forth. Every time this happens, all I have to do is put my foot to the floor in 1st, 2nd, or 3rd and power will come back in a jolt and it’ll ride smoothly at constant speeds until it decides to do it again. The idle RPM will also drop to around 500 rpms when this happens and you can smell gas/burning while stopped. Any ideas?

Incorporating smell, taste, and weather underwater

Related to this question and this question.

I am interested in building up the atmosphere of my aquatic campaign, and to do so, I would like to incorporate all the players’ senses. But I am at a loss for how to incorporate smell and taste. I know that it would be a major factor of the environment (currents would carry important information) but I’m not certain what information the PCs will get. I’d also like to incorporate weather, but they will be far in the deeps, and I’m not at all certain what weather comes deep underwater. I assume that there will be some weather, and I’m used to foreshadowing storms with hairs raised on arms or a tang in the air, but again I don’t know how to do that underwater.

I would like to know the following:

  • What smells and tastes are carried in the water?
  • What weather affects the depths of the ocean?
  • What sorts of fantasy weather would be appropriate underwater?

Why does my cupcake texture end up with a watery-scrambled egg texture, with a sulfurish smell

I’ve gotten a batter recipe, but I fear that it might have something wrong with it.

  • Mix together 250 grams butter and 200 grams sugar
  • Add 4 eggs, one at a time
  • Add 2 tbs baking soda, 2 tbs Sodium bicarbonate, 300 grams flour
  • Stir; add food coloring and extract flavor, to taste

I did add some titanium dioxyde to make the butter whiter before adding the coloring. Then, I added a few drops of red, and a few drops of strawberry taste for the fun of it.

They were baked at 180c-(350F) for about 12 minutes. When I opened the oven, the front row of cupcakes fell together. I then closed it, and let them bake for another 5-7 minutes

I have tried it twice now: some of the cupcakes fell, those that didn’t ended up smelling funky, and the texture resembled finely scrambled eggs.

Are there some ingredients that don’t really mix together well?

I did taste the batter, and the batter did taste delicious; that’s why I wonder why the cupcakes won’t cook correctly and be tasty.

excessive water (i think, but its dark out) leak and burnt coolant smell

I work approx 30 minutes away from home. when i got home tonight, i noticed a hissing sound coming from under the hood and a thin smoke coming out of the front grill. the vehicle is a 2001 ford f-150 with 5.4L. I investigated further based on the smell and checked the coolant reservoir, upon opening it safely, pressure was relieved and the hissing sound stopped and i found it was empty. i added water, drove shortly down the block and got a gallon of 50/50 coolant and proceeded to fill the overflow. almost all of it went straight into the radiator, mind you the temp gauge never showed a sign of concern on the way home. after doing so i drove back down to the block to my home and when i got home the hissing sound was occurring again and when i went to lift the hood, i noticed it was wet with steam. i then heard dripping and checked underneath and it was a constant excessive drip of water like someone dumped a cup of water on the top of the motor excessive. its dark outside so i cannot see if its coolant yet but with the flashlight on my phone i did notice the green coolant color on top of the motor which im suspecting is the cause of the smell. will not be driving it as i don’t want to blow the head gasket as im hoping its just a coolant leak. any ideas?

If you can smell something does that mean that this thing loses molecules?

When you can smell something there must be some molecules in your nose which signalize the smell in your nose. Does that mean, that e.g. a cheese is losing molecules which fly into your nose?
And does that effect the weight or amount significantly?
