Things that are (almost) impossible to do

There are things that seem easy to do with your body but are actually
impossible/rarely possible even though a few people can, a large percentage of people can’t. Have fun trying them out.
some of them are,
* Raise One Eyebrow
keeping one eyebrow down and raising the other is an action that only an small population can do. it is known as the universal sign of O RLY … I mean, skepticism.
* Licking Your Elbow
* Gleeking
This is really gross but it’s fascinating. Gleeking (or gleeting / glicking) is like spitting – but not quite: the term means projecting saliva from the submandibular gland upon compression by the tongue.
* Twitch Your Nose especially laterally ie move it briefly and back.
* Wiggle Your Ear
Even though few people can wiggle theirs ears, most people can’t
“The mechanism behind ear movements is sophisticated,” Unlike other facial muscles, ear muscles have their own accessory nucleus, a control area for muscle function, in the brainstem
* Touch Your Nose or Chin With Your Tongue
* Sneeze with Your Eyes Open
Nope, you can’t sneeze with your eyes open (well, without forcing ’em open with your hands, anyhow). Why? Because when you sneeze, the “sneeze center” in the brain “sends coordinated motor impulses along nerves controlling muscles of the abdomen, chest, diaphragm, neck, face, eyelids and various sphincters, as well as the mucus glands and blood vessels of the nose. All this happens automatically.” (Source) You can’t help it.
* Tickle Yourself
We all have a ticklish spot or two, which are never a secret from the ones we love. Gentle tickling is fun – so one can be tempted to “auto-tickle” to amuse oneself. But alas, you can’t tickle yourself,
* Toot Your Own Horn
All right, all right, this one’s only for the guys: Why do dogs lick their balls? Because they can. And apparently, so can 2 to 3 out of 1,000 men in the world, according to sex researcher Alfred Kinsey.
* Do the Paralyzed Finger Trick
Okay, give this one a try: bend your middle finger and put your hand on the table. Then lift your thumb, index finger, and pinkie. No problem, right? Now try the ring finger. you can’t? This is because the tendons in your fingers are independent from one another apart from the ones in your middle and ring finger. These tendons are connected, so that when your middle finger is folded down you cannot move your ring finger. It feels like your ring finger is stuck!
* While sitting on a chair, lift your right foot off the floor and make clockwise circles. Then, while doing that, draw the number 6 with your right hand. You can’t help it: your foot will change direction.
* Similarly: move your right leg in anti-clockwise circles and simultaneously draw the number 8 with your right hand.
* Walk while swinging ur right leg and right arm together
* Another tricky thing to do: simultaneously rotate the index fingers of both hands clockwise. Do it slowly at first, but then pick up speed. Try to go faster and faster, and pretty soon your two fingers will be going in opposite directions!
* Put Your Fist in Your Mouth
Well, the steps are easy enough: 1. Make a fist, and 2. Insert into mouth – but most people can’t do it, except the few ( mostly women) who have a) small fists and b) big mouths!
