Handing things to people or making them taste them

That's especially effective with people who are parents or have large exposure to children. It's almost an autonomic response for us.
The savior of billions (Norman Borlaug) dying barely rated a mention in the news this year. Farrah Fawcett wore a bikini well back in the 70s and she got international coverage. Good job, society.

I've never understood that whole game. Why, in the name of all that's holy, do I need to taste something that you say is vile? Why? Do you suddenly doubt your tastebuds? Do you need a second opinion before throwing the whole mess out?

This lack of understanding - and, thus, refusal to play along - especially comes into play if I can smell whatever it is that's being foisted on me and the smell alone makes me gag.

Of course sometimes it is just that the other person doesn't like, oh, say, blue cheese dressing on cold chicken. (Yummm.) Or sour cream and ginger snaps, or even cider shandys.
