Ever Frozen Your Tongue to a Spoon?
When I was young (how many decades ago?) I once went to the freezer, opened a box of ice cream (probably Breyers), dug a spoon deep inside, and put the spoon on my tongue.
Was I shocked! I couldn't take it off! It's funny what can scare you, isn't it?
I was scared. It would be years before I discovered how this can happen. The memory of what happened "stuck" with me and sticks with me to this day.
Would you like to know the simple science behind what caused the spoon to stick?

Hint: It has something to do with the material the spoon was made of. It's not as likely to occur today for reasons that should become obvious to the reader.
