    I can do flips and somewhat interesting back flips. Useless except for impressing some people.

    And I'm ambidextrous! But I almost always use my right hand.

    I can twirl pencils/pens/drumsticks/basically-anything really fast by pivoting them around my fingers.
    And...I can wiggle both my pinky-toes. o_o

    I can roll my tongue both ways (so I can do the "cloverleaf" trick).

    I can list a lot of history and geography facts, like all the U.S. presidents in chronological order. I don't want to go into all of them that I can do because it feels braggy...

    Also I don't know if it counts as a "thing I can do" but I have synesthesia, which most people don't.

    Hi, I'm Rose. I love music, alcohol, pointless Internet debates and being a snob about my choices in entertainment. I write a lot. You can read some of my writing at Autostraddle.com, the best site for LBTQ women on the Internet, where I am a staff writer. Or the funhouse that is my tumblr. I also write music sometimes, and post the better fruits of my labors on my SoundCloud.

    I can do good anime impersonations and I can crack and pop my shoulder at any time I want. Which doesn't hurt, surprisingly.

    all my life I've tried to hide what history has given me

    I'm ambidextrous and I can roll my tongue.

    - I am left-handed.
    - I can bend my thumb back very far. I'm not sure if it's exactly 90 degrees, but it's close. This is known as "hitchhiker's thumb."
    - This is not really something I "do," but I have Morton's toe, which means my second toe is longer than my big toe. Apparently, this only occurs in approximately 20% of the population. *shrugs*

    I'm not sure if I can do anything else that is considered uncommon, but I'm slightly jealous of people that can make a cloverleaf with their tongue. :P I can roll my tongue into the tube-shaped thing, but I can't do the cloverleaf.

    I remember things in great detail. I'm not 100% sure but I think I can remember the day I was born xD I can remember a ton of stuff from when I was about 3/4, including the weather, toys I played with and some food I ate and stuff I drank (pop, Complan ect).

    I forgot to add that I'm semi-ambidextrous; while I'm naturally right-handed, I've taught myself how to write with my left hand, although I still can't do it as well as I can with my right hand.

    (I knew that writing reminders on my hands in middle school would be useful one day)

    I have that too.

    I'm pretty good at forging signatures & handwriting (just for fun, of course).

    I can twitch my nose like a rabbit and can do it pretty quickly. I'm so fast that I've confused pet store mice and rats. (They'll sit there and stare at me and twitch their own noses at a lower speed. It's like they know humans don't normally do that sort of thing.)

    I can do a backflip on a trampoline. That's what made me cool back in the day. I can hold my breath for quite a long time too

    I can't forge anyone else's handwriting, but I'm pretty good at disguising my own.

    (Again, a skill picked up through middle-school hijinks - I would write on desks and bathroom walls and didn't want to get caught, lol.)

    I dunno how rare this is, but I can cross all my fingers one after the other, without any bones being dislocated. My fingers are all perfectly shaped so no harm done.
    I can speak at a really sound. Probably lower then norm.
    I can play a guitar blindfolded.

    I sure was funner back then, possibly even stupider....

    Also, I can hear sounds a little below the normal human hearing range.

    Probably has something to do with playing low instruments. My ears are more sensitive to them, I guess.
