A kindred spirit! I can do that too, as well as wiggle my ears. I also have the uncanny ability to make those around me feel very uncomfortable.

Ok but only the first trick (the second one makes me look hideous Sleepy ) Tongue

Oh what! That's easy. Lol. I was imagining something beyond my abilities.

Atheism is the only way to truly be free from sin.

Re: Obsolete and/or Useless Talents
I can sew. I can also grow and can almost anything. I know just about every edible wild plant in my region. Might be useful if we didn't live in the modern world.

Wouldn't do it now, but I can dress and process a full size deer in two hours by myself.

I studied entomology for years on my own, always hoped for a career. My memory is lapsing now, but I used to could look at any regional insect and tell you the order it came from, it's preferred habitat and diet, complete life cycle, and known management techniques.

I can take any word or phrase and twist it into something obscenely perverse. Very useless in certain company. Big Grin

RE: Obsolete and/or Useless Talents
Yeah... tap dance.
Yeah... the eyebrow thing
Yeah... Rubik under 2 mins.

And I can turn my tongue over.

Cool

As for useless / obsolete... I know how to crimp coax, twinax, Wang, thick and thin ethernet cables.

The same day that I posted about licking my elbow, my daughter and I were watching Good Mythical Morning (our favorite show together) and we stumbled upon this one:
Things Most Humans Can't Do
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=YIwhOT5RkME

Licking elbows is in there, as well as some tongue tricks. How many of these can you do? Let's talk about that.


(I'm not sure of the customary way to post vids on TTA, so for now I'm just doing the link.)

Up to you Tongue

From that list I can:

Wiggle my ears
Raise either eyebrow
Tongue lip xD
Flare nostrils (but almost everyone can do this... I can't wiggle the nose though)

I can't do the clover tongue (never tried) but I can make the vertical tongue! Big Grin

I can purr, like a kitten. Big Grin

I have this really fun thing I like to do when we have to schlep the kids to the store. If they act out of line, I start singing, very badly and off key on purpose, very loudly. In my song, I sing about all of the embarrassing things I'm doing to the kids and they have to stand there and listen to me.

Works wonders because well, two are pre-teens and one is a teenager and they HATE when I do this. Oh well. Behave and I won't have to embarrass you.

Well, I can bend just the first joint on each finger and make my eyes vibrate back & forth rapidly. Neither ability has yet proven very advantageous, financially or otherwise although world domination is not yet out of the question.

I have the exact opposite talent. I can take an explicit recipe and extreme care and consistently cook things that are essentially inedible.
