believe it or not dunking your hand in some acid substance like horse radish water, feels the same as it does in your mouth. At first i thought it was just really cold water, but that wasn't the answer, the acid was messing with the nerves close to the skin and it feels like its cold. I guess really its the same with actual cold air, the air is effecting the nerves that transmit these different sensations, and it does it in a way that we recognize as cold.
