Tasting WordsScience brain teasers require understanding of the physical or biological world and the laws that govern it.
Liz, Blondulla, and Fred were talking to each other. Blondulla and Liz have been friends for many years, but they just met Fred a week ago and were trying to get to know him.
They started talking about computers, and after Fred had repeated the word, "Chip" a few times while talking about computer chips Blondulla told him to stop saying it, as it tastes bad. Fred thought she was full of it, but Liz knew she was telling the truth. How could Blondulla taste the word?
HintThe fact is Blondulla tastes every word spoken. This word just doesn't taste good.
AnswerBlondulla has a very rare ability called Synaesthesia. It is where people are "Wired" a different way, and two senses come together. In her case, she tastes what she hears. There have also been cases where people feel what they hear, people hear what they smell, etc. In fact, the majority people who have this case are usually unaware that they even have it. Some of you may be shocked to learn as you read the answer that you have this condition.
