You know that thing you used to do with your eyelids in middle school to weird out your friends. Can you still do it? What other freaky things can you do with your person? Does it do amazing things all by itself, such as this woman who can see and taste music:
These are my extremely humble contributions to the discussion, one temporary and two permanent:
1. When a woman is pregnant, her stomach can grow so large that her belly button disappears. I never got quite that big, but I was big enough that I could pop my belly button in and out. People were either fascinated or repulsed. There was no middle ground.
2. I can wiggle my nose like a bunny. It’s a fun in stores when there’s a little kid ahead of me in line. I wiggle my nose, they try to wiggle their nose. Hijinks ensue. I discovered the trait was genetic when the very dignified, and really rather Edwardian, Pater Julien demonstrated this ability at the age of 75. Alas, Little Julien does not have the bunny gene. Honestly, other than his need to correct people, I’m not convinced I’m involved in his gene pool at all.
3. I can put my fist in my mouth.
You’re scrolling and railing, “Pics or GTFO!”, aren’t you?
First of all, don’t curse at me. Secondly, I don’t use my real name, you do you really think I’m going to put pictures of myself on here? Lastly, I did actually take a picture. It was unseemly. I appeared to be swallowing an albino python. You can see how that would be inappropriate on Pajiba, if potentially profitable elsewhere. Or maybe you can’t. The fact of the matter is I’m not going to post a photo of myself ingesting my own hand, okay?
I can put my foot in my mouth, too. Originally, this manifested itself as either a literal or a figurative skill, but with age comes limitations.
Then there’s this guy:
What can you sense, bend, wiggle, rotate, undulate, or endure? What is the most bizarre thing you have seen someone else do with his/her body? Natural freakishness only, please. A thousand piercings get an A for effort, but it’s not an innate ability. Bonus points for attempts with nasty repercussions, or if, just as your mother warned, it got stuck that way.
