If water is tasteless and air is tasteless then why doesn't air taste like water?

I wonder why.

Hmmmmm.

Or inversely why doesn't water taste like air?

Ever drank carbonated water with no flavoring?

Is a good thought though!

Air and water feel very different, so the experience of "tasting" them isn't going to be the same.

If they do indeed have "no taste", then they taste the same by definition. If they taste differently, then at least one of them must have some sort of taste.

Air can definitely have a taste depending on who is in the room with you and what their diet is like.

Water has weight and much higher thermal inertia. Your sense of taste give you the same feed back. But the tactile and temperature sense of your tongue gives different feedback. Your brain collate the feedbacks and tell you they feel different. You then mistake the lumped together "feel" for just taste.

Technically, neither are truly tasteless, as they both contain trace elements which imparts a taste to them. Also, you don't "taste" air; you smell it. Thus the differences in experience.

They say if you fart really bad some small miniscule particles of shit squirt off your ass and float around. So if you just run your face through the fart cloud with your mouth open you can actually taste the air.

It's probably not tasteless either

If the square on the hypotenuse equals the sum of the square on the other two sides, why is a mouse when it spins?

Tasting water is the closest feeling you can get to smelling air.
Doing these two things at the same time can emotionally reboot your spiritual aura as it creates a crossover point in between the two senses and allows for multidimensional energy to flow into your brain via the cerebral pickup receiver.
Warning - common side effect is severe coughing.
I'm only facetious because I like to use all the vowels at once, in order.

air has always tasted like my own saliva to me . . .
If any email controversy impacted the election, it wasn't Russian hacking of the DNC and  John Podesta's email, it was Hillary Clinton's decision to have her own email server and the subsequent FBI investigation which raised all the same  questions  Hillary Clinton has justifiably faced for decades about her trustworthiness and honesty.
