"Horrible Details: Acids taste horrible and sometimes stink. You wouldn't want to go near some of them. They are strong enough to dissolve the human body!"
This only attests to the diversity of acids and the roles they can play, from flavoring your salad dressing to causing acid rain in the clouds.
