The human palate is arguably the weakest of the five traditional senses. This raises an important question regarding wine tasting: is it bullshit, or is it complete and utter bullshit?
It's finals season for some college students, and I personally know one who is busy studying ... for Wine Tasting. You know you're jealous. And if you were lucky, you maybe once took a class like that yourself.
Maybe it wasn't until we read this headline that we really appreciated the scope of the British teen binge-drinking problem: "Wine-tasting club is the toast of top independent girls' school." Oh, and heard that the "critical thinking" teacher started it.
