    I'm pretty tired, and I feel like making a thread, so. ;D

    This is for you people who can't roll your r's, your tongue, can't wink, can't spell (there are quite a lot of you guys around here) and can't touch your nose with your tongue. What can't you do that seemingly everyone else can?

    I can't touch my toes without bending my knees for the life of me. I know I can change this, but people are seriously born that way! And also, I can't dance, which is probably a consequence of me being horrifically inflexible. However, I can somersault. Hooray.

    -I can't run technically. I can walk fast.
    -I can't hop, I have to bend fully to jump.
    -I can't jump very high.
    -I can't jump off of anything. I have little to no suspension in my knees.
    -I can't bend my hand back very far.
    -I can't get hit in the head very hard. My neck will break far too easily.
    -I can't walk barefoot on wet ground at all. I will slip... ALWAYS.
    -I can't be impacted too hard in places. Bones will break, not as fragile as my neck.
    -I can't reach anything above 4ft.
    -I can't somersault, check #6.
    -I can't walk or stand for long. My legs are built oddly. I CAN improve this somewhat.
    -I can't calculate math problems at an average speed or higher.
    -I can't do a lot of things physically... to an absurd extent.
    -I can't hear properly a lot of the time.

    There is more.

    Howcomes?

    - And I'm cackhanded / somewhat ambidextrous.
    - So (primarily) I throw and catch with my left hand, write with my right, play snooker/pool with my left, play football primarily with my right foot etc..
    - Which makes me a proper spack when it comes to stuff like scooping coffee granules and putting them in a mug (physically can't do it properly).
    - I also tie my shoe laces the left handed way.
    - I'm colourblind so can only see black and white
    - I don't fit very well in small cars
    - Only recently learnt how to butter bread properly
    - I can remember detailed conversations or events from years ago, however it takes so much work for me to remember stuff for exams. Short-term memory ftl

    Because I don't like the taste of any of them!

    I also cannot cook anything.

    Try Amaretto, spitting image of Dr Pepper, especially mixed with Coke/Dr.P P:

    And I'm fail at cooking also.

    Haha. Sorry I lied, but I am colourblind. Just awful with shades really, but I don't notice it unless I'm tested on colours. Can't do these things:

    I've never learned how to make tea or coffee (since I don't drink them).

    Apparently it's called "mixed-handed". I'm like that as well. I mainly use my right hand, although I prefer the left for some things, e.g. eating, drinking, pouring, using a phone, etc. I also have this strange tendency to occasionally switch which hand I use my wireless mouse with (at the moment I'm using it left-handed, if you're curious).

    Fark, I was going to say that. Try an amaretto sour, tastes just like candy.:D

    -I'm ambidextrous while I'm writing, but with almost everything else, my left hand is useless
    -I can't touch my nose with my tongue
    -can't whistle using my fingers (y'know, when you put two fingers in your mouth and whistle loudly, I can't do that.)
    And also, I can't dance, which is probably a consequence of me being horrifically white.

    Snapping my fingers. Otherwise, I'm pretty much amazing.

    Haha, yeah there's some technical name for it but I can't remember, so I just call it that. And yeah, I'm the same with my laptop :p currently using the touch pad with my left.

    Yeah I've had that too, so niceee.
    I also wish I could wolf whistle also with my fingers.. :(

    -I can't wolf whistle.
    -I can't roll my 'r's.
    -I can't touch my nose with my tongue (except, I thought most people can't?)
    -I can't touch my toes without bending my knees, which surprises me.
