    An odd question...........(tasting the rails)

    have you ever been standing in line in a railed queue like autopia or haunted mansion and looked down between knee and hip hieght??? if you look around long enough you notice the first one, a small child aged 3-5 who enjoys the TASTE of the metal railing. In horror you begin to look around and spot another and another. Is it just me observing these small rail lickers or is it some bad side effect from a daylong diet of corndogs and churros??? :confused:

    Maybe it's a mineral deficiency .... I've heard that pregnant women in some cultures eat dirt to supplement their diet .... It's supposedly an uncontrollable urge where you body knows what it needs and you get the urge to eat dirt ... or lick a railing .....

    Maybe the rails are laced with a special chemical and us grown ups are the ones missing out!

    A news story appeared a few years ago and specifically mentioned a segment of the population in Georgia that periodically feel a need to nibble on the red clay that is abundant there.

    I worked with a woman who was from Georgia and I asked her about it and she freely admitted that her family had done it for as long as she can remember. She had just recently paid a visit there and said she had to have a bite.

    Ah, I remember enjoying that odd metalic taste. The same way I enjoyed the taste of pennies.

    give it a try. The closer the rail is to a restaraunt, the better the taste of the rail. MMMMMMM..churro rail...it saves me $3.00.LOL

    "I used to chew up rocks, and spit out gravel..."

    I've seen this too, and it's quite disturbing. And it's eerie how much many metals taste like blood. Maybe these kids have latent Vampiric tendencies...
