Speaking of toothpaste, why does Children's toothpaste taste so NASTY? I mean, do they really wonder why kids hate to brush their teeth after about 8 years of tasting that stuff? Besides, what's kids' paste have that adult paste doesn't (or vice versa)?
one day, i actually learnt that eating spoonfuls of Nesquik(sp?) didn't taste as good as when i was a kid. my dreams of eating cholocate every single day when i grew up just vaporised.
parents don't usually allow kids to eat too much sweet. no parents do. that's probably why kids favour those ones which taste better than just peppermint.
and actually, kids' paste don't have anything more than what ordinary pastes have.
i still prefer chloride toothpastes, made from bamboo salt. they taste nice, yet very effective in cleaning, while being 100% natural
as for peoples' perceptions of their surroundings...
imagine you are born on a space ship, where there is no gravity, the walls are coloured white, food comes out of a tube in the centre, etc etc. you'll percieve it as 'natural'. if you were living in that condition, you'll say that sucking on a tube to eat is natural, that the world is white, and wouldn't have a single idea about gravity.
same on earth. everyone has different perspectives. who knows if i look like something else in someone else's eyes. who knows.
it's all a matter of perception.
but it's usually perceived that people have same vision, same colour coordination, etc etc. it is genetic anyway.
maybe that's why when you pray to God really really hard, the prayer comes true... even if everyone else is denying the prayer...
