I can repair glass christmas tree ornaments if they aren't totally destroyed.

I can look left and move my left eye to the right, and then my right eye to the right. And then back again. I saw someone do it on tv, discovered that everyone does it -- they just haven't practiced it.

My dad can do that! Fun at parties!


I can make a funny face that looks just like Stan Laurel ( Laurel and Hardy.)


Remember Insect classification names in Latin.

I suppose my weirdest talent is being able to mimic any accent of any nationality..even slight regional nuances.. I didn't discover family did..and would wheel me out to entertain visitors and friends etc.

I can do this thing with my tongue... Oh, this isn't the place to tell this story.


Vibrating my eyes back and forth left to right very fast. My grandfather use to do it when I was little, I tried it first I think around age 8, got good at it by 10, blew minds at 12 in junior high heh.

If there is a nail or other sharp object in the road, I'm gonna pick it up with my tire. Every. Damn. Time.

Is that a talent or a curse? ?

@GinaMaria I'm keeping other people from getting them, so maybe it's a public service. ??

@Darla_Ann That's a positive spin on it! ?


I can make cricket sounds. ?


If there’s anything spillable on a floor, I’ll eventually accidentally kick it over. It’s been happening for as long as I can remember.

When someone is talking I count the number of letters in their sentences at the same pace they’re talking. Started doing this when I was 5.

My boss says I "connect the dots" - so she gives me projects to look over to make sure a step is not missing. But where I really notice it is driving - unless it is packed bumper to bumper, I can see a path through traffic like buttah. I can cite many instances of people seeing me do this on the road and following me through! This helps at conferences and in crowds at concerts too.

I forgot! I can also make things perfectly level without using a level.


I have really good spatial reasoning. Can tell by looking if anything will fit in a space. I can roll, flip, and make a flower out of my tongue.


I am awesome at the guitar, but only when I'm very drunk. I discovered this talent after a bottle of tequila at a friend's house. I consider it strange because I can't play a lick sober.

I discovered that I recognize people by voice, even though I have trouble recognizing the faces of white people. I can identify movie star voices in films where they are in costume and can't be recognized by sight.

I locate birds and wildlife by ear also. I can walk in the woods in almost total darkness and identify animals by sound and scent. Everywhere I go, I am aware of all the bird species around me and can instantly pinpoint a strange bird in the seeming jumble of sound, even if I'm not aware I'm even paying attention.

I can blend into the woods and become invisible to deer and other wild animals. I have even walked into the middle of napping white tail deer herds bedded down in the woods, and left again without being detected. I deduct points from my personal score if I'm ever detected.


I can swallow a piece of string and when I pass it, its tied together. I shit you knot

Ever tried swallowing a strip of sandpaper with it? Id be a frayed knot too.

No way. I’d say prove it but please don’t.


I can put chocolate in my mouth and make it disappear.

Riding a unicycle.

Well once.

Apparently riding a unicycle is not like riding a bike.


I'm Mexican, but I can seamlessly blend in with white people.

Until you talk? Because a Latino without an accent is just another hispanic. Much apreciate you called yourself Mexican! Horale Carnal.


I can hold my breath for over 6 minutes.

I am hyper flexible in all my joints.

Also I can mimic birds

Oh I can also stick a drink between my boobs, bend backward and drink out of it. Or I could before I got too disabled. Mom taught me that.

I can also roll my tongue really loud into a high pitched trill that sounds like a rape whistle

@LadyAlyxandrea that sounds amazing!


I have two strange talents. One is the ability to line up things in space perfectly even without measure. Second is an incredible visual memory. I remember where my lockers were in school, where I sat in classes. All I do is think of some place I was, then I can visually see it perfectly. I discovered the first talent when I moved into my first apartment and began decorating. The second memory talent was discovered during a verbal IQ test while in college.
