Default Not burnt toast but...

Reading GYNDs burnt toast thread got me thinking, when I had my prang last year I got a funny taste in my mouth, at the moment of impact. Not had it before or since. Kind of coppery - not sick or anything like that. Anyone else unfortunate enough to get knocked experienced this? I'm genuinely curious, I can *almost* taste it when I think of the accident

Ride safe...

I've tasted iron before, but that would make sense, since I'd bitten my tongue when I hit the ground.

Blood has an odd metallic taste.

When A car pulled out on me, I experienced what I believe to be true fear.

My Heart tried to jump out of my mouth. Took a minute to calm down and if I stopped I would have probably vomited.

I stopped a car with my face once and had a funny taste when I woke up in hospital. The worst part is that I had just got my shiny new VFR back from having a full stainless system. ****!

People suffering from heart attacks sometimes get a taste of copper in their mouths.

But I wouldnt take this to mean you had one, they would have known in the hospital.
