The human body is so awesome. It is the greatest machine on earth. However, we have discovered a few interesting things that the human body simply can't do, and are virtually impossible for most people. Sure, we know that a very tiny minority of people exist that will post a video to the internet to challenge our claims, but we are confident that the eight things we list below are 'almost' impossible to do with the human body. Want some fun, gather some friends around and try it.
Unless you are actually having a 'Hemifacial Spasm', twitching your nose is not possible for most people. Believe it or not, there are actually certain genes that a very small few have that allow super human control over their facial muscles. Well, maybe not 'super human', but still not something most people can do!
Only a very rare 15% of people are able to wiggle their ears. This ability has been lost during human evolution, according to some sources, most people do not have the ability to wiggle their ears.
Do you sometimes just look at your dog and get envious, as he whips out his tongue, does a quick swivel slurp, and cleans his nose, chin and cheeks simultaneously? Try it, you can't touch your nose, chin or cheeks with your tongue.
Who wants to tickle themselves? O.k., Maybe you had a really bad day, no one is home to comfort you, so you decide, "hey, I'm going to tickle myself, that will make me feel better!" So your tickling away, but you don't feel anything and you wonder why? We hate to break the news to you, but your brain already notified your body that it was about to be tickled so... you may just want eat some ice cream.
Just try it. Most Humans have fists that are much bigger that the opening of their mouths, making it virtually impossible to put your entire fist in your mouth. A few are somehow able to manage this, simply because they have little hands.
Unless you have really short arms, no matter how hard you try, you can't lick your elbow. There are some people who are able to touch the tip of their tounge to the tip of the elbow but most people cannot! The good news is, when you think about it, why would you ever need to?
If your a big foodie, you probably haven't noticed that when your swallowing your food, your not breathing. We know that food can be really, really tasty, but you may just want to slow down and take a couple of breaths in between bites.
Our Saliva is so precious. It serves some really important purposes. Not only does it stop bad breath, without our precious saliva, we can't dissolve food chemicals in order to taste food.
