    In small amounts it's hard to detect but in high concentrations the distinct odor is detectable?!

    Hydrazine maybe?
    It is a rocket fuel, it smells a bit like ammonia, a biological form of it is in Gyromitra mushrooms as gyromitrin (monomethylhydrazine)
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hydrazine

    Edit:
    It is a hazardous material and quite poisonous.

    I would have said acetone, but hydrazine is probably a better answer.

    No, no. I'm beginning to like these threads. Look forward to them, in fact. These threads are fun. I can't wait to read the next crazy thread this guy posts. Each one is goofier than the last and no way you can ever guess what the subject will be -- except in general terms -- some sort of secret military weapon that only causes hair loss.

    I too find them entertaining. I just wish there were more detail. What's a sonic bomb? And how does it use fuel?

    Diazomethane?
