What was the taste

A scientist voluntarily dared to taste poison!

During the experiment, he touched the tip of his tongue to the poison and died just after writing ‘S’.

What was the taste??

  • Roolstar

    The tip of the tongue is reserved for “sweet” taste buds…

    He couldn’t have tasted anything else anyway… So “stupid” is another right answer for this “scientist”/”lab rat”

  • Yes, you’re correct.

    It is generally accepted there are five taste sensations, though there is research by some scientists who would extend the list:
    (1) Sweet,
    (2) Salty,
    (3) Sour,
    (4) Savory (also called Umami), and
    (5) Bitter

    Based upon a translation by Edwin G. Boring, a Harvard psychologist, of a German paper written in 1901, the tongue was mapped as:
    Rear of tongue: Bitter
    Sides, Aft-middle: Sour
    Sides, Fore-middle: Salty
    Tip of tongue: Sweet

    So the answer, given the accuracy of the above information, would be: SWEET. Extra credit for Stupid, too.

    You’re today’s winner.
