I was asking my dad if I could buy one and he said no. When asked why he said they'll stink up the whole house. I'm really curious do they really stink like that bad. I wanna get one anyways but if they really do smell like my dad said they did than I won't get one cause it would be in my room and I couldn't deal with it.
