I had one question that asked in which area of the brain taste is processed. I think that's only tangentially related to senses, and all about whether you knew where in the brain different senses are processed.

17 for me but as Goodweed said, a lot of the answers came from stuff I already knew.

I'm sorry, but aren't taste combinations ENTIRELY subjective?

I was thinking the same thing. There are taste combinations that are more commonly enjoyed by a majority of people, but that still doesn't mean that someone else should make a blanket statement that a certain combination tastes good or bad.

Oh me too. I chose that one because it seemed like the one "they" wanted us to choose, but I won't be trying it any time soon!

Thanks Karen, but I had seen the count the f's thing before, or my score would have been lower.
