[music |Chatting about minors drinking.]

This happened at Harvard University in October last year. In a biology class, the professor was discussing the high glucose levels found in semen which gives the sperm all the energy for their journey. A female freshman raised her hand and asked, "If I understand you correctly, you're saying there is a lot of glucose, as in sugar, in semen?" "That's correct," responded the professor, going on to add statistical info. Raising her hand again, she asked, "Then why doesn't it taste sweet?" After
a stunned silence, the whole class burst out laughing. The poor girl's face turned bright red, and as she realized exactly what she had inadvertently said (or rather implied), she picked up her books without a word and walked out of class, never to return. However, as she was going out the door, the professor's reply was classic. Totally straight-faced he answered her question. "It doesn't taste sweet because the taste buds for sweetness are on the tip of your tongue and not the back of your throat. Have a
good day."

Actually, thats an official Urban Legend. Nope. No accountable proof of this stories truth.

But.. funny none the less.

Actually, for fun go to http://www.urbanlegends.com and they have this HUGE database of urban legends and which are true and which are debunked. Its great fun.

Another sorta random fact

I had a human biology Prof. (I think) tell me that the whole different taste buds being at different parts of your tongue was bullshit.

Also, Random factoid; My Human sexuality Prof. told us that an approximetly average ejaculation contains between 15-20 Calories (If memory serves).

Re: Another sorta random fact

Really? I've tested food on different parts of my tongue and it's tasted different on different parts, so that seems to be pretty based on fact to me.

And yay for a low calorie diet. *grin*

I posted this in an entry in my old LiveJournal. It's false, though, I found it on snopes.com.

I figured it would be. :) A couple other people pointed out the links too. Still mighty amusing, based on fact or not.
