This is in light of that ridiculous post from March about pound signs

1.
So, when Brits use # (the "hash symbol"), what is it used for? And what does "hash" mean?

I understand what "number sign" and "pound sign" (the other names for the symbol) both refer to, since it can be used as #1 (number one) or 1# (one pound of weight), but what is a "hash"?

Can't # still mean pounds (weight) in England? It's not like we pretend kilograms don't exist in the U.S.

How many distinct varieties of fart smells can you name? I feel like there are three or four archetypal odors.
