What strange skill have you got???

not many people can do this but i pride myself in being able to lick my elbow, dislocate my shoulders on request ( they are artificial and no nerves left much)

I am very good at cleaning stalls. I clean stalls for other people for money (as well as my own). People like to joke that I sold my soul to the devil to clean stalls this well, even though I'm an atheist! I try not to let people know that I have a stall cleaning job around the barn because I would get too many requests. I usually get $10 per day of stall cleaning (I clean a stall twice a day, one time I only pick the manure out for compost and the other time I get the pee spot and whatever manure is there).

My knuckes are what my doctor jokingly refers to as triple jointed... I can pop them out and in place without feeling anything and can move my veins around on the back of my hand using just those muscles.

I can also pop virtually any bone in my body... my friends also say that I can pop bone that no one else can...

Bubblegum, you're a freak!! No, just kidding. I can dislocate both of my shoulders and one of my hips. I pop almost every joint (did it on purpose when I was younger and am now regretting it, sounds like a small arms war when I get up in the morning). But I think the weirdest thing that I can do is make a fist with my left hand, then point my first and pinky fingers straight out, then touch them tip to tip across my other fingers.
Like I was gonna do the rock-n-roll hand

Then just make my fingers meet in the middle. I can't find a pic anywhere.

I can also do this

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

I can make a sound like a dolphin. Also a range of cat sounds well enough to fool any cat and most people (not sure how uncommon this is though).
