Are you rare?

if you can do all of these then you are rare ... 

human body is very interesting, even though I'm not sure what's the benefit if we can do this rare body tricks ... these article taken from glamour.com

Remember the kid in elementary school who could roll his eyes so far back in his head that you could only see the white parts of his eyes? That used to really freak me out. There's a lot of quirky things we can do with our bodies--some things only a small percentage of us can do. Have a special ability? See how rare you are...

Wiggle your ears. "The ability to wiggle the ears may be inherited however it can also be learned with practice," she says. "It is thought that about 10-20 percent of the population has the ability."

Roll your tongue.  
You know the myth: That people who can roll their tongues (and tie cherry stems in knots) are good kissers! Well, then 60 percent of the population are smooch-worthy. That's the amount, she says, that can curl and or roll the tongue. But it can be learned, too, she adds. However, "the ability to form a clover leaf tongue is an inherited trait."  

Raise one eyebrow. Turns out, most of us can do this, and if we can't, we can train our muscles to do it, she says (just in case you were desperately hoping to learn). 

Lick your own elbow. "This is a very rare ability," she says. 

Touch the tip of your tongue to your nose and chin. Also very rare, she says. Try it, it actually seems impossible. 

Twitch your nose. This one is more common, she says, and you can train yourself to do it (I'm imagining you all twitching your noses right now--ha--you know you're doing it!).

Sneeze with your eyes open. "It is difficult to sneeze with your eyes open due to the great amount of pressure that builds up in the eyes during a sneeze," she says. "There are reports of people that are able to accomplish this task." You?

did you have fun? I believe you've tried one or two tricks while reading this, just hope that people around you didnt notice it :p 

by the way let me know if you are rare ... and how many rare trick that you can perform :D
