My flexibility. Let me show you it.


UPDATE: It has been insinuated this image has been PhotoShopped. I can assure you it has not been re-touched in any way. This was taken back in July at a friend's cabin up North. There were witnesses. This is one of my creepy, but entirely useless human tricks. I can also still put my feet behind my head, although it's not nearly as easy to do that as it used to be.

ANOTHER UPDATE: Okay, so there's apparently lingering doubt about my actual ability to "walk backwards." I don't know if this will sway the doubters, but the wife snapped this today.

(I can tell from the pixels and from seeing quite a few shops in my time.)

Let's see a dirty mushroom shot with your feet facing out. I used to be able to put my feet behind my head but haven't tried it in a while. I also used to be able to fit my entire fist in my mouth. Ahh, useless human tricks, the spice of life. My almost used daily stupid human trick is to whistle continuously while breathing in and out. Yes, I am not who you want to share a cube farm with.

Hey, I can do the inhale/exhale whistle thing, too!

I can testify that this is not PhotoShopped, seeing as I took it. Yes, it is creepy, and yes, it is real.

Dude, you should totally be checked for Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and Benign Joint Hypermobility Syndrome.
(Cuz you don't already have enough shit to worry about, and oh, it's hereditary.)
And because being double jointed is a myth. And because it's creepy looking.
See also Everyday stranger, october 18th 2008. that's what made me think of it.
