When you cook food that smells terrible, you're not just being rude to your neighbors. No, you're guilty of olfactory molestation.


There was a case in Gorizia, Italy where some neighbors took a married couple on their block to court over the terrible smell of their cooking. The offending couple were big fans of a fried seafood dish that smells like pure death.

The case actually went back and forth through the appeals courts until it made it all the way up to the highest court in Italy, their equivalent of our Supreme Court.

The couple has to pay a fine of $2,100.
