I love the human mind This is purely SCIENCE

We all know that our brains can trick us in to seeing what is not there (illusions). I did not know that this is also the case in the sense of taste. Maybe you did but it has been a while since I have been to school.
You can fool you tongue into tasting salt when actually none has been put in your mouth.
Do you want to try it?
You have to pretend you have a slat shaker in your hand, try to see the salt shaker. Now open your mouth and stick out your tongue. Close your eyes and shake the shaker into your mouth.
Do you taste the salt?

If you are one of the few for whom this did not work try standing infront of a mirror and do this with your eyes open.

  • Have you ever tried the string out of our hand trick? You take your finger and lightly run it from your wrist to your palm a few times. Then, you pinch your first two fingers and thumb together in the middle of our palm. If you have done it right, it will feel like you are pulling a string out of the palm of your hand.

  • Sure thing! I'm on here a lot, & you know me, I'm just embarrassed by how fast I got it! I didn't even need the mirror.

  • its not the action b/c (and i hate to say this cause its kinda gross) i eat salt on a regular basis. i tried doing it the way you said, and i tried doing it the way i do it (shake onto hand and (fake) lick). neither way worked.

    but im also eating candy so my mouth is sugary. i'll try it again later.
