Approximately 500 people were evacuated from the RMIT campus in Melbourne recently when several people reported the smell of gas coming from the library.
 
Firefighters combed the area and found the source of the smell to be not a gas leak but – wait for it – a durian. The fruit had been left to rot in a cupboard and the offending smell had moved around the building through the air-conditioning system.
 
The thorny Southeast Asian fruit is undeniably pungent, so much so that it’s often not allowed on trains and in hotels.
