    I know a guy who lost his balance, he has to walk with a cane and he doesn't fall or any of that he'll just tip backwards or forwards he'll rebalance himself by shifting his weight. No matter what he will never get his balance back but the more stress he's under the worse it gets. So if he's stress free he can walk without the cane and only minor problems.

    I do think temperature detection is a sense, I like the way Gus explained it as a sub-sense, that makes sense too.
    Maybe there are senses we have that are so subtle that we don't even think about them. But with the example of temperature, Burnie said you can't lose your sense of temperature, it is possible. The proof of concept is me, I had surgery a few years ago on my broken collar bone after a break. When I healed after the surgery I found that I couldn't feel anything in a small area beyond the incision, on the path of nerves. After the sense of touch came back I still can not feel cold in that same spot. I, however, can feel cold as it spreads through my skin below and around the area, using ice is not a good way to test it. As it melts, it drips and it's not very precise. I realize I can't prove it, but it can be explained by medical science.

    Many senses help balance things. Take it from me. I recently got diagnosed with Vestibular Neuritis and Labrinthitis which is as mile's discussed, a damage of the inner ear. And my vision went blurry, my balance dissipated even though I've had amazing balance and vision my entire life and they work in tandum with each other. And when the room was spinning my 'sense of gravity' was pretty much gone.

    im kind of annoyed out of all of this exactly two people mentioned proprioception (sense of self) and only one even mentioned what happens when you lose or have significant impairments in it. I INJURE MYSELF NEAR DAILY BECAUSE I CAN'T FEEL WHERE MY BODY IS. IT IS AN EXTREMELY IMPORTANT SUBSET OF TOUCH PROCESSING.

    ALTHOUGH TO BE PERFECTLY FAIR, I AM ALSO VERY UNDERSENSITIVE TO EXTERNALLY CAUSED PAIN SO I CAN ONLY MAKE A ROUGH ESTIMATE OF THE INJURY RATE.

    basically im annoyed that everyone is treating this as some silly thought excercise and allusions to SPD are apparently so weird and trivial when the specific distinctions between types of senses is super important for understanding sensory processing disorder, which i have :/

    Hi there everyone. I am a medical student and I have heard this debate on whether or not there are more than 5 senses enough times that I finally have to say something about it. I also decided to post it on this podcast because it’s the newest one and more likely to be seen.

    There are more than 5 human senses. The 5 senses that are taught in kindergarten are the classically described senses (sight, hearing, taste, smell, and touch). The idea of 5 classical senses dates back to Aristotle. However modern medicine has discovered numerous other senses. Biologically senses are described as the physiological ability to perceive different stimuli. Scientists have discovered that each sense has its own separate receptor to detect these stimuli.

    To date these are the senses discovered and their receptors in parentheses:
    1. Sight (photoreceptors)
    2. hearing (hair cells in cochlea)
    3. taste (taste buds)
    4. Smell (olfactory receptors)
    5. Touch (numerous different mechanoreceptors that detect things such as pressure and vibration)
    6. Temperature (thermoreceptors)
    7. Kinesthesia (proprioception – ability to know where one’s own body is such as where your arm is in space when you close your eyes)
    8. Balance (complex system of bony labyrinths that detects movements of fluids while in motion, also used to feel gravity)
    9. Pain (nociceptors)
    10. Numerous other internal stimuli that aren’t consciously “felt†(baroreceptors – pressure; chemoreceptors – chemical concentrations)

    Each of these sense receptors are part of neurons that run in their own tracts in the spinal cord to the somatosensory cortex of the brain. These different tracts can be damaged thru nerve damage and that sense can be lost in the area supplied by those neurons. All of these senses work together to give the brain a larger picture of what’s going on. Someone can also specifically lose one of these senses. There are specific medical tests to determine damage to these individual senses. The Romberg test involves having the subject close their eyes while standing. If their proprioception or balance is affected the subject will start to lean over and even fall down because without the sense of sight they have no idea where their body is in space.

    Also the sense of taste only contributes a small portion to the overall sense of taste. Perceived taste is mostly the sense of smell. People that lose the sense of smell later in life perceive food as being less tasty.

    Burnie, if you ever are looking for someone to help answer scientific/medical questions let me know.

    They need a black shirt with yellow handprints on the shoulders, and it says "The sense of shoulders"
    Or, a beanie with a brain, and it says its all the brain anyway.

    If anyone ever wonders how League of Legends' champions are pronounced, Riot Games releases champion spotlights where they pronounce the names themselves.

    To those who claim that "Just because they made them doesn't mean they pronounce it right", hear me out. Proper nouns and non-proper nouns are treated differently. I could look at gif and pronounce it gif, while someone else can pronounce it jif while we debate all day and reach no conclusion. Proper nouns are different though in that they change depending on where you are.
    If I look at Austria on a map, point to it and say "Austria" while someone from Germany points to it and says "Urstireyesh" (spelled like that for phonetic reasons), neither of us are wrong despite saying it differently. This same thing applies to pokemon where an English speaker would pronounce it "Jigglypuff" where a person from Japan could pronounce it "Purin" and we'd both be right.

    This means that despite the spelling not changing (because Riot decided to keep it the same[where others decided to change it for cultural reasons ie Jigglypuff]), how it's pronounced is based on where you are. In the American accent that is declared by most to be the one with the least "accent", in other words the English that the employees at Riot speak, Sivir is pronounced basically how Miles pronounced it.

    Saying there isn't or is more than 5 senses is just semantics. Saying temperature is just touch is like saying red paint is just paint. Its just depends on the situation, if your asking what the traditional five sense are you would say touch, taste, smell. sight and sound. But if you are talking in technical terms there are many more. Its just semantics.

    So a few months ago I started listening to the podcast from the first episode since I have never listened to them before but I have still watched the most current ones while going through the old ones. In this episode they brought up the Durian fruit and later after I finished this episode I started podcast number 85 and guess what got brought up? Friggin Durian fruit. This has happened a few times where stuff gets brought up in an older episode directly after I watch the most recent ones. It's pretty damn cool lol.

    I can't wait to see what the new office is like, especially the new Achievement Hunter room. :D

    By the way, there are definitely senses outside of the classic list of 5. You can say you don't agree, Burnie, but that doesn't mean science is wrong. :P The definition of sense IS made up, but it does include more than the 5 classic senses.

    I was listening to the guys discussion about the Heartbleed bug.

    Luckily, it did not create too much problem for them, that's a relief! And a lot of other people were just as lucky where it didn't create too much problem.

    But Canada wasn't as lucky. My taxes are now late, thanks to this problem. I know it's out of our control and props to the techs who repaired the sites quickly. Most of our Government's websites were down and we couldn't send our tax forms and others.

    In other news. Great podcast as always! I just love having it in the background while I just do other *boring* stuff and it just makes the day so much better! :D

    Gavin: "Did you know there are over one-hundred elements?"

    Burnie: "That's just some nonsense you heard from some guys sitting around on the internet! Everyone knows there are only four elements! You are not going to convince me otherwise: Fire, Earth, Wind, Water!"

    Gavin is right about the senses. Sense= sensation. E.g the sensation of feeling heat, the feeling that something is hot (clearly not touch).

    I'm guessing Gavin doesn't understand that air is matter. He keeps bringing up that when you feel things like pressure and gravity, you are touching "nothing." However, air has mass and takes up space. Thus, it is an object you can touch. So pressure is touching the air that has become more or less dense than what you are used to. smiley12.gif

    There are people who have no sense of temperature, and it is something that you can lose. I remember reading about a man who was in an explosion in the military, and he had to have special temperature gauges put on his shower and such so he wouldn't accidentally burn himself.

    Last week Friday, I underwent extensive reconstruction surgery on my knee after a football injury. Since then I am bed ridden and in quite a bit of pain despite the pain killers. Since my surgery, however, I have also re-watched seasons 1-7 of Red Vs Blue, watch every Let's Play that Achievement Hunter puts out (as I usually do) and now just finished watching this Podcast.

    I just want to say thank you to Rooster Teeth as a whole of a community, including the lovely community members, for always making me laugh till i cry even during the hard times, that is a very special talent. The only downside is Gavin is going to hate my guts because i'll be in crutches for a full month, sorry chum.

    God Bless and keep up the good work guys! Excited for the big things in store as you make the move to your next office.

    (P.S. - Shout out to Burnie's hat! I was born and raised in Hawaii and seeing the Hawaiian Island chain on the right side of your hat was super sweet!)
