Kyleomatic--a post based upon Kyle trying a new tobacco blend. Shocked

Semi-Kyleomatic--when I simply don't post as often. (...or is that selective fire?) Laughing As if that happens, anyway. Razz

...or it's when a thread gets derailed beyond the point of no return. No I'm such a jerk.

Okay, fine, so they occasionally go down burning. At least it's when the subject matter has been thoroughly exhausted and everyone has had their say...and Monbla has repeated himself at least six times... (he's old--must forget he was here... Razz Razz Razz )

Enter stage right: Monbla! Take it away, sir! cheers Laughing

Cool

Just imagine buying stinkomatic tobacco at a B&M in New York State. You get to pay 75% tobacco tax, shipping cost added to your high tax New York State residence and then you get the thrill of throwing it out as long as you pay your carter, plus New York State and local sales tax. Talk about WTF!

One of my university professors (BSc. - Food Sciences) was fond of the phrase "You can't have flavour without taste..."; of course, he would usually follow this with, "...and you sir, have none!".

A fun experiment to find out how well your tongue works - well, not so fun, but this thread reminded me of it. Mix up some blue-food colouring 50/50 with tap-water, and swish it around your mouth. Find a handy retainer (remember those funny disk-shaped things from your school days for repairing torn holes in paper?), and place it on your tongue. Count the dots in the center. Most people have somewhere between 15 and 25; if you have less, you have a poor sense of taste; more and you are a "supertaster".
Of course, no matter how many taste-buds are revealed, they can still only detect five tastes - salty, sweet, sour, bitter and umami. There is some argument as to whether a sixth flavour is detectable by some people, however all of the evidence I've read about it is inconclusive. That flavour is calcium (kokumi).

I want to do this for the hell of it, but I have no idea what a "retainer" is as you describe it. Perhaps a bit before my time...? Are they still available?

Kyle: They are called reinforcements. These stationery items come in a small box like stick matches. They are small white circles with holes in the middle. One needs to lick the glue similar to the glue on an envelope and then stick over the torn hole of a sheet of loose leaf paper. These items go back to the days of loose leaf binders in high school and lined loose leaf paper. You know, around the time that Moses came down from Mt. Sinai with the Ten Commandments.

My apologies for being born in the age of tape. Laughing

Never heard of 'em or seen 'em in use. I wonder if they'll look at me deadpan in an office store if I ask for them. Then again, they look at you deadpan if you ask for pens.

They are still available (or at least were three years ago), although it has been a long time since they had to be licked in order to be applied (I used them to reenforce the pages of my tenure applications in 1994 & 2009). They now come on a ribbon, pulled from a box -- peel 'em off and stick 'em

to put it simply...

flavor = taste + smell.

taste is well... taste i.e. sweet, sour, bitter, salty (and umami if you want to get all uppity).
