Hey there! Welcome to Life Noggin! It's time to do another one of our most requested videos.
Here's some more common myths debunked! You excited? I'm excited! Let's do this!
Something we’ve all probably been taught is that our tongues can be “broken down”
into different regions based on taste. As if we can point to a certain area and say,
“there it is! That’s the spot that makes cake taste so darn good.” That's clearly
wrong. The five tastes can be sensed on all areas of the tongue, especially along the
sides. The only thing slightly true about this myth is that the back of our tongue is
very sensitive to bitter tastes.
Next up!
Don’t fall prey to the common myth that bats are blind. In reality, bats
can see perfectly well. They can also use echolocation to hunt insects at night and
map out an area. So next time you are in a cave for some reason, the bats know you are there…and they
are watching.
Have you ever been told that a penny dropped from the top of a tall building could kill
you? This is a lie. Because of air drag,
the terminal velocity of a penny is between 30 to 50 miles per hour, or maybe even less
if there’s wind. It might not feel good if it hits you, but it won’t drill through
your skull.
There is also some weird belief that people with red hair are going to go extinct due
to climate change. But this is ridiculous, a gene can’t just “die out” unless every
single person with it suddenly keeled over. Rather, red hair is a recessive gene, meaning
both parents must have it in order for their children to show it. So, it could become more
and more rare, but redheads won’t be extinct. To all the gingers watching, we love you and
want you to stay around.
So, tell me in the comments the myth that bugs you the most and maybe when we do another
one of these videos, it'll be featured, hmmm
Make sure you come back every Monday for a brand new video.
And if you want even more Life Noggin, check out this video we did on the science of cooking
Thank you so much for watching! My name is Blocko, this has been Life Noggin
and of course you know what to do but I'm gonna say it anyway! Don't forget to keep on thinking!
