Don't be disgusting! Not those talents!

I mean odd little stuff that is useful or just interesting. For instance, I can wake myself without an alarm clock - and I work different hours several days a week. I haven't used one for over 15 years now. Anyone else?

I don't know as I have any talents that anyone here would find interesting, but one of the girls in my club can curl her feet up into the equivalent of a fist and stand and jump on that "fist" It makes me shudder every time I see her do it.

Laura, that is rather nice of your school to allow chimps to train.

Saisho,

My instructor is really nice, he allows me to train there too!

back in the good old days of AIDS paranoia in the 80's, schools gave out condoms like politicians dish out lies. at 13 we were knee deep in comlimentary rubbers, and strangely enough, absolutely devoid of any females charitable enough to let us use them as they were intended. This lead to diversification of use, including water bombs, inflating them over our heads, chasing girls around the yard 'twanging' them with them (much better range than an elastic band), and of course the gross-out 'nasal floss' trick.
Being a kid absolutely rocked

Gee...and I thought it was more mysterious. Like...some kind of yogic purification ritual...or something.

I knew a guy in elementary school that could drink his milk through his nose. I couldn't sit anywhere near him during lunch because it would gross me out. Now for myself, I used to (before I had kids) be able to kick my leg up and catch it then drop into the splits without letting go of my leg.

I can move my adam's apple up and down freakishly fast and, I don't know if you'd call this a talent, but I'm very creative when it comes to figuring out stuff to do when my crazy friends and I are bored. Check it out.

yes, this was also done on the same day as the other post with me jumping out of the garbage can, freaking out that car as it drove by.
