We’ve all tried to reach our elbow with our tongue or sneeze with open eyes, often with more enthusiasm than elegance. In the spirit of self-mockery and human curiosity, we present a list of the ‘Top 10 things most people can’t do with their body’. So, get ready for some light-hearted self-discovery and a few guaranteed “I must try this” moments!

1. Licking Your Elbow

Come on, who hasn’t tried this after a friend’s challenge? Chances are, you looked like a dog chasing its tail. Unless you have a tongue that can compete with that of a giraffe, it’s unlikely you’ll accomplish this feat.

2. Tickling Yourself


It’s a bit like tickle-dueling with yourself and always losing. Our brain is smart enough to know that the ‘attacker’ is actually you, so no giggles for you! Not even under your armpit.

3. Sneezing with Your Eyes Open


This is the ultimate stare-down challenge. Can you sneeze without closing your eyes? Chances are your brain says, “No thanks, I’d rather keep them in their sockets.”

4. Wrapping Your Legs Around Your Neck


Unless you have a background in contortionism or you’re a human pretzel, this is probably not your party trick.

5. Autofellatio or Autocunnilingus

This is for those who really, really, really don’t feel like going out. But let’s be honest, most of us will probably just keep binge-watching Netflix.

6. Raising One Eyebrow


It’s the international expression for “Really, dude?” But if you can raise both eyebrows independently, you’re actually an emotional ninja.

7. Tongue Tricks


Can you roll your tongue? Great. Can you fold it into a cloverleaf shape? If so, you’re probably a mutation or a superhero in disguise.

8. Bringing Your Tongue to Your Nose and Chin


This is for those who have always considered a career as a chameleon. Unfortunately, for most of us, it’s nothing more than a distant dream.

9. Putting Your Fist in Your Mouth

This is a great way to amaze your dentist or to never be invited to dinner parties again.

10. Moving Your Ears

If you can do this, congratulations, you’ve probably missed a great career as a human rabbit.
