    I can curl it like that. And I can make it look like a clover! And curl it sideways! And do all sorts of weird things with my tongue. My dad and sister can't do it, and a bunch of my friends can't either. It's pretty great to see them try!   Now, the only...

    I have a very flexible tongue.

    I can do a variety of different shapes, such as the taco above and as well as the 3 leaf clover (see cover image).

    They say that this ability is due to deminant genes in your DNA. I also have hanging ear lobes. Aren't I the dominant one. Ha Ha.

    Crow's Beak Breathing

    This ability to curl one's tongue which I share with many others, is called crow's beak breathing when you inhale, drawing the air across it. It is a yoga "pranayama". It's also hereditary, I don't think one can MAKE it happen if it doesn't come naturally. I can also wiggle my...

    Weirdest Thing

    I never could - or thought I never could.  then my four year old starting doing this -- ALL THE TIME.  I know that in order to do this, I think it is genetic (don't quote me) and one of the parents had to.  Hubby couldn't, and I...

    I Look Like That Picture Too

    I can roll my tongue, exactly like the lady in the picture (except no lipstick, chap stick only). Been able to do it all my life. Funny thing thought ... I haven't been able to figure out exactly what it does for me. Breathing through my mouth is harder. Coffee still costs...

    Yes I Can!

     Wow i can do this too. It is genetic, i remember learning about this back when i was like 13. It depends on the thickness of the tongue and the muscles in the tongue. Its a pretty cool ability but pretty useless at the same time...

    Very Oral

    It's useful at times but most people aren't too impressed. I'd need to find a much better party trick.

    O.o Do I Get A Prize?

    I didn't know that some people couldn't. So does the tongue curling club have a secret handshake that I need to know about?

    No Love Like Loving A Soldier

    When someone falls in love, they always say they just KNOW when they've fallen. There's something about the way he touches her that sends sparks through her veins. There's something about how she looks in his eyes that gives him a hard time catching a breath. It's that knowing...

    The ability to curl one's tongue is a hereditary trait.  My sister and I can both curl our tongue in the shape of a shamrock lol.

    Biology Class

    I didn't discover that I could do this until 7th grade biology class, when we were talking about genetics and hereditary traits -- dominant vs. recessive, etc.  Apparently the ability to roll one's tongue is genetic.  My ex-husband used to freak out whenever I did it...

    I Always Have

     Yes, I can curl my tongue just like in the picture. Only some of my family can do it, so I guess I have this talent. I remember using my tongue like this as a straw to suck stuff up when I was little. In grade school I would suck up pens, and pencils. It was a huge talent...
