a scale that ranks the smelliness of a flatulate. the scale represents how many hobos, or flatulates, of that magnitude it would take to clear a 10 story building.
1-2 - a fart so nasty it liquifies a person's clothing and immediate surroundings. Immediate evacuation is needed
3-4 - a rank given to a fart with the ability of making those in close proximity vomit uncontrollably
5-6 - a mid scale fart that will generally make people clear a certain area, but not necessarily make them vomit
7+ - regular farts, usually people will comment and stop eating food, however they will not need to make an effort to evacuate the immediate area.
Example 1 -
Ricky: "Dude what happened to your clothes"

Example 2 -
Bersell: "Dude it smells like a dead animal in your house"
