Bit and Pieces of life

Taste Sense reacts when a substance reacts chemically with the receptors of taste buds, the sensation of taste is created. People lose their perception of taste as they age. By age 20, half of their taste receptors will be gone (on average).


The sense of touch is the first to develop in humans at about 8 weeks into the gestation period. Touch stimulates the brain to release endorphins. Blood pressure and heart rate can be reduced by a touch.

When you breathe in through your nose, olfactory receptors are stimulated by chemical molecules suspended in the air and messages are sent to the olfactory bulb at the base of the brain. Smell is the sense most strongly linked to memory.

Every person smells things differently. This is because of the over 900,000 genetic variations of olfactory receptors. Good smells make you happier. Odors can accelerate puberty, attract mates and alter menstrual cycles in humans.

Dogs recognize and identify humans first by scent. Grizzly bears can smell food from up to 18 miles away.

Life is like a bunch of roses. Some sparkle like raindrops. Some fade when there's no sun. Some just fade away in time. Some dance in many colors. Some drop with hanging wings. Some make you fall in love. The beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Life you can be sure of, you will not get out ALIVE.(sorry about that)
