I borrowed that Title, from the Email my Sister sent me, which conveyed this story, from Science Fare, http://sciencefare.org/2013/03/27/why-sea-lions-cant-taste-sushi-but-we-can/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+sciencefare%2Fmain+%28Science+Fare%29. It regards a topic that it is something that is near and dear to all of us–Food, more particularly Seafood. But, at the same time, we probably hadn’t thought much about it in the way this article is written.
In the past, I have Posted how Thinking Skills (A/K/A “Critical Thinking”) can be important to everyone. The linked article might be a good topic to discuss with a child, of perhaps ten or twelve, to have them consider areas of thought that they hadn’t previously explored . Likewise, as one ages, expanding what’s in your Noggin’ might help keep Dementia away.
In fact, you might want to track-down a copy of the movie “Splash”, with Tom Hanks and Daryl Hannah. That’s the movie where Mr. Hanks’ character met a girl mermaid, when he was nine or ten, and then meeting her again when they were both adults. So, what does that movie have to do with eating raw fish?
Well, when the two go out to dinner (her in her humanoid form), she was eating raw lobster, perhaps upsetting other diners. So, watching the movie and discussing what’s in the article can provide for different ways of looking at things. Wouldn’t that definitely be “Thinking Outside the Box”? Bon Appetit!
