Apparently not everyone can voluntarily give themselves goosebumps just by thinking about it. Did not know that.


#2

hmmm, i just did it. might be cold, not really sure


#3

Flip pancakes.

The trick is to not half-arse it.


#4

Reliably reverse park the car. Not such a thing in the UK but Americans looked at me like I was some sort if wizard when I did it over there.


#5

This

#7

That Star Trek hand greeting with both hands.


#8

Yeah this. I can flip, Mrs F is a feeble flipper.

On the opposite side, things everyone literally can do, except me: make an acceptably shaped omelette.


#9

well this is going well

I’ll be honest I didn’t expect much more beyond the initial post but I figured maybe someone has like telekinesis but it only works on copies of the Radio Times from 1972 or something like that and it’d be fun to find out.


#11

how… are you unable to make a badly-shaped omelette? HOW


#12

Your left eye looks like it’s squirming out of it’s socket


#13

I’m very able to do that. I said so.


#14

:smiley: why i oughta. pls explain tho.


#15

I was referring to my aborted reply, which first of all didn’t work, then when I edited it it looked like I was being insulting.


#16

Just can’t get the cheese melted properly and then fold it into an omelette shape satisfactorily. Always end up with a pile of eggy mess with cheese in. Which is fine, because it all tastes the same.


#17

Do you have telekinesis though?


#18

whistling whilst humming at the same time


#19

Certainly not when it comes to eggs.

So that’s you and everybody who can play a didgeridoo.
