My buddy told me over the weekend that he was a 'supertaster' which I have never heard of. Maybe he can taste cat piss in things that I cannot...
Have him try this....
Are You a Supertaster?
Roughly 35 percent of women and 15 percent of men are supertasters. These folks have been given a special skill. No,
they can’t fight crime. Their palates are much more sensitive to a number of flavors, especially bitter. You can test to see
if you’re one of the lucky ducks with a bit of food coloring, a hole reinforcement label (the things you put on a punched
paper to prevent it from ripping out of a binder), and a good camera.
Douse a cotton swab with blue food coloring. Paint the front of your tongue with dye.
Carefully place a reinforcement label on your tongue in the colored section.
Take a photo of your tongue and zoom in on the hole. Count the number of pink dots inside the circle. These are the
papillae that house your taste buds.
If you count more than thirty-five, you’re probably a supertaster and have a legitimate reason for hating broccoli.
Below fifteen? Oh boy, you’re a nontaster. If you’re in the middle, welcome to being perfectly average!
