Social Tip #216 - Taste the Truth

Remember the tongue map?

Turns out, it was all a lie! Every part of your tongue can taste every taste.

Students have been testing the tongue map as a science project for generations, if we hadn't all been grade mongers or idiots that theory could have been disproved decades ago.

What about "different people can taste different things"?

In high school we had this experiment where the whole class had this tiny piece of "paper" put on their tongue. Some ran to the sink spitting it out, some felt mild discomfort and some of us didn't notice anything at all..

I'm gonna have to find my science professor and ask him about it cuz I'm really curious what it was we tasted 10 years ago :)

If you ever have a boy, please don't circumcise him! Have you ever seen it (they have videos of it on youtube)? It's horrific and apparently babies can bleed to death because of it (rare, thankfully).
The circ rates are now about 50/50 so no need to worry about the "odd man out" locker room syndrome anymore.
Just please research it. Baby girls are protected against genital mutilation here in the US, shouldn't boys be too?
