Scientists have identified a new sense within the human tongue that is able to perceive carbohydrates.

Fantastic, due to these researchers I will now be able to tell the taste of a potato !
Have these people nothing better to do with the money given to them!!

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

Are we sure this isn't the same set of 'researchers' that concluded that Beer Goggles exist in an 'Extensive study'? Seems the kind of waste of time and money they seem to endorse :yes:
