Still Waters

A Glasgow writer has been swallowed up by social media after revealing she can taste people's names.

Julie McDowall sees nothing out of the ordinary in being able to measure a word - or a name - by the taste it gives her.

After revealing on Twitter that she had a condition which means she can describe the tastes she experiences when she hears a word, she was bombarded with millions of requests.

Julie said: "I have a neurological condition, synaesthesia, which sounds serious but is actually quite funny.

Read a book about synaesthesia once called "Born on a blue day", really interesting actually.

The sensory overload must be off the charts. Worse yet, a great many of the example tastes given were absolutely gross. I'd be retching all over the place.

Donald - Rubber duck dipped in vinegar. My question is did she actually try to eat a rubber duck or is she referring to over cooked duck? :rofl:

You know eating psilocybins causes synesthesia that everyone can experience.
