I can't do cart wheels or handstands at all. I don't know how to swim at all, I can do fine in the water I just cant swim. And for all of you who can't roll your "R's" don't worry it is something very few people can do. I have been speaking spanish almost 40 years and I can't roll my r's at all no matter how hard I try.

This thread is a riot. I can't snap on my left hand. When I snap my fingers on my right hand, I use my ring finger...I know you are all snapping right now. Most people do it with their middle finger.

Hey! I can actually do something on this list!! I can still do a cartwheel. I used to be ok at handstands too. I bet I still can do a cartwheel off of a balance beam. However, I could never do a cartwheel off a low beam (like the kind that sits directly on the floor). I could only do it off the high beam. Weird, huh?

this is too funny --

I always wanted to be able to do a cartwheel. Never could. I also wanted to learn piano -- tried so hard as an adult. Just couldn't figure it out. Oh well.

Could never tumble, do cartwheels or handstands, whistle using my fingers, climb that dang rope or any kind of skating as a kid. Phft, still can't do any of that!

But I CAN raise the one eyebrow (that's THE LOOK to DH that means he's in trouble or I don't believe him).

I taught myself some piano as an adult. I can't learn the guitar though. I thought it was a mind blank since it's strung differently than a violin (which I'm good at). So I tried mandolin (same strings as a violin) - NOPE! Still can't figure out why I can't figure that out!

I do too. Is that odd or different?

I *can* with my middle finger, just not as well.




How many can split their fingers (like the Vulcan thing) -- keeping pinkie and ring finger together and index and middle?

I can do the vulcan thing on both hands & snap with both. But cartwhells or anything athletic - I never could. Can't do the eyebrow thing either.

Love reading this link

I can't swim. ride a bike or play a single instrument or do a cartwheel, just never learned, and I can't run anymore.

I can do the Vulcan thing, raise the eyebrow and could probably kick some zombie azz - I'd have to though since I can't run.

I can do the vulcan thing. I can also cross both sets of my fingers (meaning index with middle, and ring with pinky). Don't think that's unusual, but I guess not everyone can do it.

I always wanted to learn how to do a back flip and never did. Don't think I will try now, I have had a broken leg and a finger both required emergency surgery. No thank you!

I'm going to start taking a poll. I think most people snap with their middle finger. My husband makes fun of me for snapping with the wrong finger.

I can do the Vulcan thing, but better on my left.

I can still do cartwheels, but not the back handsprings of my youth.

I used to bowl with the wrong two fingers in the holes...pointer and middle, instead of pointer and ring
