there's no right answer because everybody licks with different force, saliva amount, and probably saliva acidity.

I'm almost 97% positive that saliva doesn't have acid in it.

You deserve a lot more thumbs than you got.

it doesn't, if it has a ph even slightly under 7, you could brush your teeth forever and they will still rot because they are slowly withering away, your teeth would probably be nothing but gums after 20 years. More or less.

Well not exactly, Over all the millions of years we've been on this earth, our mouths would've probably adapted to be able to handle saliva if it were acidic.

erm no...it would still corode, we wouldnt suddenly be able to have refined precious metals replace our teeth, we would slowly remove the acids from our saliva to make things easier.

Saliva has enzymes that break down food and such, that's why you're supposed to chew for a little before swallowing, besides making the food smaller of course.

but it isn't acid.

Actually to **** with my teacher we talked about this in my bio class. And there are more factors than just that. The amount of water in your mouth effects it because that changes the amount of sugar that will dissolve. The way the crystalline lattice of the sugar is angled to the stroke of your tongue matters. Even the lollipop itself may be off center. The test would be extremely difficult to accurately do.

The self control required to perform this experiment is astounding.

I tried this with several lollipops and averaged it.
About 827 licks to the center.

"How many licks does it take to get to get to the Tootsie Roll center of a Tootsie Pop?"

The question is how many licks to the tootsie roll part of the pop, not to the center point of the pop

Judging by your typing, I assume you did that like one or two years ago. Right?

I must have a really clear saliva because I take about 2 to 3 hours just to eat a piece of hard candy or lollipop, it just won't dissolve!!
User avatar #21 to #19 - trainverse (09/21/2013) [-]
>must have been clear saliva

what color is your saliva? O.o
User avatar #22 to #21 - squeemonster (09/21/2013) [-]
I meant clear as in it mustn't have a lot of enzymes and aminoacids and you know, stuff that makes saliva dissolve stuff, it must be practically all water.
