This is a question Unusual talents

B3tans! Can you hum with your tongue? (Your Ginger Fuhrer can and he once demonstrated this to a producer on Blockbusters on the hope of getting on TV) Maybe you can bend your thumb in a really horrid way that makes it look broken. (Your Ginger Fuhrer's other special talent) What can you do? Extra points if you fancy demonstrating this with the odd pic or youtube vid.

I can...
... put fags out on my tongue and push things really far (like 4 or 5 inches) up my nose.

Needless to say, both come in really handy.

What is the sound of one hand clapping?
The answer, of course is a clap.
I can flick my palm forward such my fingers smack on the base of the hand and make a clap. Not everyone can do this and when I demonstrate it, at least one person will start flapping his arms around like a retard. Some kid was invited onto the Tonight Show because he could do it also. This little snot had NO form whatsoever and he was flapping around and banging his head and bugging out on stage while half of America watched him spaz out on TV. I could do it better than he, but he stole my spotlight.

I hate the Archers on Radio 4
Which must be a talent because it's been going for about 70 years now with a fanatical audience.

It's utter, utter shit. I actually turn the radio off every time it comes on, but I've heard enough to recognise:

- The acting is straight out of Carry On - strictly stereotypes with imbecilic "Raaral" accents that sound like an unironic 70s TV ad for cider.
- Storylines that would look hackneyed in a daytime TV soap. From Brazil. Made in 1983. They've only just got round to dealing with ethnic minorities, and he's a white Glaswegian.
- Total lack of narrative drive or surprise. Oh no - Old Mr Archer is going to drive his mobility vehicle across a frozen lake . . . I wonder what will happen.
- The occasional sop to agricultural matters, expressed in the most clunkingly obvious dialogue like "Well, I must be going to milk the cows now - these new EU guidelines on milk quotas really make it difficult for the dairy indutry, you know".
- "Issues" as found on your more mainstream soaps, but nothing as exciting as necrophilia or cannibal dismemberment. No, it;'s more like drink driving or forgetting to pay a parking ticket. I think they did epilepsy and Alzheimer's too.

My God I hate it. Even hearing just a few seconds of it after the news of before the arts show will make me want to kill a farmer. Please make it stop.

Psychological defenses superpower
All of us have psychological defenses between us and the outside world. We weigh information, and reject or provisionally accept it depending on plausibility, how much we trust the source, etc.

My mum has the unusual talent of having a hole in these defenses which appears to be exactly Daily-Mail-shaped. Anything published in the Daily Mail becomes instant truth and cannot easily be dislodged.

I can perform the Countdown counting down tune in my head whilst brushing my teeth and finish at the exact same time that my toothbrush beeps to inform me that 30 seconds has passed. I developed this ability due to my toothbrush humming at the same pitch as the first part of the aforementioned half a minute musical piece.
