Do you have an unusual ability? (grinnin' again...)
For example, I can pop a cherry in my mouth and tie the stem in a knot--never using my hands, of course...

I believe that everyone has some hidden talent...so, DO TELL...WHAT IS IT THAT YOU DO?

I don't know that it is "unusual" but I do believe, every now and then, I can make people...

I can whip up a "cat's cradle" (& variations) faster than any kid in my class... I've been practicing since I was ten....  

um... what about the whipped cream??

Oh, yeah? How about this one...

It seems I have the uncanny ability to make people angry with me at the speed of light.  

Does that count?

I have the ability to piss people off.  



I was born myself, raised myself, and will continue to be myself. The world will just have to adjust.

I hate your socks. I'd like to burn them!

Whoa!!!  How do you do that?  I always thought that cherry thing was just a special effect on a TV comercial!

DOpey:

I share your ability in pissing people off.  I find that whenever there is a big discussion on religion, ESPECIALLY about creation/evolution, I can piss both sides off equally at the drop of a hat.  I'm the creationist's worst enemy because I am a Christian who believes in evolution, and I am an annoyance to the evolutionists because no matter what arguments they use against me, my faith never wavers.

Special ability?  I am a neutralizer.  Much like antacid to am upset stomach.  I can defuse tense situations without even thinking about it.  Hence in all of my 24 years I have never been in a fight.  Hey, I know, maybe I should go mediate things in the Middle East?

Doreen:

Are u sure that is a healthy thing to do?  I mean, it can cause neurological damage, I think, because you're overusing your brains systems and stuff.  

Have you ever halucinated as a result of staying up too long?  There was a radio announcer in the 1950s who stayed up for 200 days and he became extremely paranoid and delusional as a result of the halucinations he was suffering.

Well...I thought this link was funny, so I'll put in my "hidden talent."
When I was much much younger, I was the only girl on a skateboard team in my area.  Guess what this mom of three can still do???
Yes (grinning proudly), I can still do many tricks on my old board, and I'm better than my sons!

Well, I seem to have the strange ability to untie a cherry with my tongue. Although the cherry hardly ever survives the experience.

I have this strange ability to put a cherry in my mouth, chew it up, and swallow.  You ppl are nuts with your stem tying tricks... hehe   but it does sound interesting.  
Let's see... what's my real hidden talent:
hmmm... I guess I don't have one...  I do a pretty good job of replying without really having anything to say.  Is that a talent?
You guys cracked me up here
