    I didn't see a thread on the topic of the little things that make us human. Not blood or any of that useless stuff, I'm talking about the weird talents and things we do that may be weird or awesome or otherwise uncommon. If your favorite genre of music is bebop metal, if you've never broken a bone, if you played a concert on regional TV at the age of 8, or if you just feel like sharing something awesome about yourself, this is the thread for you.

    I'll start this chain, while learning how to do harsh vocals, I accidentally learned how to throat sing. For those of you who don't know what throat singing sounds like, I'll put a video below this.

    At last, a place for me.

    My job involves a lot of screaming.

    never broken a bone, but I have shattered my spleen; not that I'd consider that particularly awesome or fun, though. ;;

    Though it is not entirely a fun fact, I would consider it a titillating tidbit.

    A fascinating factoid, if you will.

    Oh, I've never broken a bone either.
    Never been stung by a bee.
    Sometimes I brush my teeth twice because I feel like they still aren't clean enough (and also brush my teeth in the shower, if possible).

    I actually share all three of those things...

    Fun Fact: I am currently writing a book series that does not run linearly, but overlaps at various points.

    That actually sounds hilarious. I imagine it just like "I don't know what I'm doing. *Stumbles slightly* What's going on?"

    I don't know, Wu. I actually think the mental image was pretty entertaining.

    So not sure how interesting this is but...
    I've had 8 teeth pulled out and a wisdom tooth removed.

    Despite being terrified of water, I used to be a competitive swimmer and I once won 3 gold medals at the same event.

    I'm one of those twins who can tell exactly what my twin is feeling, without communicating with him. All I have to do is glance at him. I can even tell when he's trying to hide it. This goes both ways.

    When my brother and I were young, about 2 years, he couldn't speak that well and preferred his own made up words. I would translate it for him, since my parents didn't understand him.

    I can read 7 different languages almost perfectly. I only speak 2 of them.

    Anro, the twin thing sounds amazing! I've always found twins very fascinating.

    Another fascinating thing is people who can learn languages.

    I've living in a country for 1,5 years without learning the language. The locals do not really speak English. Our communication isn't always going very well.

    I learned to crochet and knit while I was in the hospital about 9 years ago after a thing. Anyway , my first project was a bunny that I still have. I still crochet and hoard yarn like a fucking Dragon hoards gold.

    I don't like mint chocolate anything and apparently that's weird? Love mints, love chocolate, but Damn it if I don't wanted them kept segregated lol.

    Did you know! Kangaroos can't jump backwards but they will gut a mothafucka. Also, Their legs don't move separate on land but they do while swimming!

    I've had all four wisdom teeth removed

    Never broken a single bone

    Sliced my hand open down to the meat and damaged those nerves [in my right hand of all places]

    Gotten stung by a bee. Once. And cried.

    Never been stung by a bee

    Though I have sprained my wrist (my right one!)

    A fascinating factoid would be that I survived a roll over crash, much to the knowledge of a few people on this site! Yay!

    I tried to crochet and failed in a very epic fashion. Instead, I learned how to use chopsticks.

    1. I broke my foot in heels (well, wedges... but they were pretty high). It was about a week before I actually made it to the emergency room. The doctor said it was pretty amazing that I hadn't been in their sooner. Little did they know, I learned how to hobble my way everywhere by practically dragging myself places and using tables/chairs to hop from one area of the room to another. I even went to a Chinese buffet, made my own plate and everything. Luckily I was still a kid so I had the energy for that stupid shit... I should have went to the emergency room.
      1. I also broke the same wrist twice, at two different times of my life, but in the same spot. What was I doing both times? Well... one time, I was just really clumsy. The second time, I was playing ninja with my neighbors in my front yard (I was probably, 10) and the bitch pushed me .-. I went down. Tried to catch myself. It was easily the worst idea I've ever had.
    2. I have this really bad habit of trying new things. I call this a bad habit because I have way too many hobbies than I know what to do with. I've taught myself how to crochet. I learned ASL, Dutch, and Esperanto. I taught myself how to draw. I love Sudoku puzzles like no other. I taught myself how to cook. I don't know how to stop~
    3. I have never kissed another human being other than my mother (y'know... family.) Not that it actually matters, lmao. Mouths are weird anyway.
    4. I never shut up when I'm nervous or curious, but I'm quiet at home. I barely talk unless I absolutely have to.

    You're just like me ;-; but not really lmfao.
