Game? Well, mostly game. When they ran out of things to actually test your senses with they threw in a few wank General Knowledge quiestions, but overall the challenge is there and is strongly correlated with the description provided. Loads of unusual and mind-boggling tasks, can you rack up a perfect 20/20 correct answers?

The "Click on which food is tasty" question is clearly a load of bollocks. Why the subjective questions?

I think it's rigged :)

Though I did get 20/20 the second time around.

13, lucky for me I could answer the biology questions.

Would it be cheating to cover up things that you know are going to skew your perception? I didn't, but I could have had a 15 if I had.

Soy and pineapple - sweet and salty, right?

chocolate and bacon - sweet and salty, right? NO!
What makes stuff "tasty"?

13. But only because I had to redo the first question after I starting browsing here the first time and missed the second question.

I've had soy and pineapple, though not quite like the picture. It was in a stir-fry, quite nice if I recall.

Never had caviar, and I'm not in the habit of eating chocolate with either bacon or brocolli. Stupid question really.

Ditto on the stiry-fry. I thought brocolli would taste nice with chocolate, actually.

16. But only because I read this thread first and got the bullshit food questions right. :)

I chose the bacon one, not because I thought it would go nicely with white chocolate, but because I said "Mmmm, bacon"

Hardly got any of the visual ones right.

I got both the taste ones right instinctively.
