Some group somewhere hacked into the image hosting service I was using, so I've reuploaded them now.

Take another look...

Yep, I can do the thumb thing. Back when I was younger, I used to be able to fold my thumb so it was laying on the back of my arm pointing back at my elbow.

Also, the doctors tell me I have "party trick" knees. Basically, I can dislocate them, on command, without pain. I used to sit there, and happily have my knees clicking away. I don't now as the docs tell me I will wear them out one day. I've made people throw up when they've seen what I can do with them. Apparently I either have really loose, or no cruciate ligaments in my knees, and extra muscles to allow the voluntary movement.

Only problem with them is, as a child in the playground, if I went down a fireman's pole, I could never unwrap my legs in time, and I'd end up on the ground with them locked in place. I could pop them back into place, but it hurt like hell if I didn't let it do it in their own time.

I can do a very special pushup. Only one though. But yeah... "one is all you need" apparently.

That's awesome!

I used to mimic Michael Winslow as a kid so can make a few nifty sound effects with my voice. Electronic beeps, water drops and some try-hard white-boy beatboxing. Oh, and some gnarly demon/monster voices courtesy of several years screaming in heavy metal bands (one in particular, an "inhale" rather than exhale noise, sounds like a pterodactyl from Jurassic Park and is very, VERY loud)
