Remember seeing films on these topic in grade school, think they were made in the 60's.

While vomit smells disgusting, strong cheeses can smell delicious.

no fair! I've burned, squished, and cut my fingers so many times that I'm almost certain my tongue is more sensitive.

It's better at at least one thing, anyway....;)

ferocious kitty, you beat me to the chocolate bacon. Where do they get off telling me what's tasty? Bah!

To a certain degree food tastiness is subjective, but isn't there probably certain chemical combinations that the human brain, in general, determines as better than others? I mean, we all have different tastes, but nobody thinks motor oil and cinnamon tastes better than cinnamon and sugar.

I thought the caviar question was a little bit unfair. I've never had caviar, so I don't know what it tastes like.

17/20, but some of those questions are subjective (taste etc) and I answered them based not on what I thought, but what I thought the correct answer would be. Like notsnot, there are plenty of people (me included) who have abused their hands and i am sure that my tongue is more sensitive I agree with the other thing he (or she, I guess) said, too.

Bah, this isn't a senses test, it's a quiz with about 10 trivia questions about senses, about 5 questions that actually require exercise of a sense to perform, and about 5 questions that require an exercise of will to ignore a sense in order to perform. Nice idea, poor execution. I give the site's creators a score of 8 out of 20.
