The Man Who Tastes Sounds 2

An anonymous reader writes "Synaesthesia — a condition where the brain has extra connections, causing numbers or days to have colors associated with them, or sounds to have particular tastes etc. — has always fascinated me. This interview with a man with lexical-gustatory synaesthesia shows how all-encompassing the condition is. I asked him when he first became aware of it and he replied that it's like asking someone what was the first thing they saw or smelled. Also, my name tastes salty and metallic. Yum."
