Why do sharpies smell so bad, can I get sick if I smell it?

    Generally, sharpies contain two solvents, nitroparaffin and naphtha. The super sharpies contain Ethylene Glycol Monobutyl Ether instead. Yes, you can get sick from inhaling these solvents too deeply. (Typically, people inhale them to get high.) You can experience severe headaches, neck pains, etc. You won’t get sick from simply smelling the sharpie, but inhaling it repeatedly can harm you.
