Sulpher is the smell you smell when you go to a pool and it smells like rotten eggs, sulpher puts out a really bad odor but it is really relaxing in the pools, sulpher is also used in a process to turn a black and white image into a sepia image, you first bleach the image and then you put it in a special sulpher bath which then turns it brown.
Sulphur was known in antiquity. In Latin, it was called sulpur, and in Greek, qeion. It was considered the embodiment of fire, and related to lightning. The Greek name for sulphur means divinity and was derived from qeos a word that is reffering to Zeus shown many times with a handfull of lightning that he is ready to throw at anyone that he needs to. He was the greek god of gods and he ruled the lands.

If you are ever in photography class changing an image into sepia is actually a lot of fun because you can isolate curtain areas of the picture and not turn the entire thing sepia but you will have to be careful, the reason rotten eggs smell bad is actually because they produce sulpher which is not a plesent smell but you cant hold it aggenst the rotten egg, at least your not eatting it. The sulphur hot springs are quite enjoyable especially when it is cold outside because they are warm and you can go take a swim in them, you get used to the smell quite fast so if you go don't be turned off immediately by the smell and just give it ten minutes or so to go away.
