I Can Roll My Tounge

    My Mom Couldn't

    In my family, my dad, my sister and I could all curl our tongues like this, but not my mom.  I didn't really notice until I got to Biology class in high school and we learned it was one of those recessive genetic traits passed along.

    Yep, I Am Unique..., Nearly, Almost, As Good As

    Not only can I roll my tongue but I can also touch the tip of my nose with it.  I can wiggle my ears as well. Back in my school days I had to do this very often, for all my fellow pupils who apparently couldn't. But I always knew there were more people out there just as unique...

    Only Certain People Can?

    I was confused seeing this, rolling my tongue's like the easiest thing to do! Some people can't? Really?

    I've Always Thought It Strange....

    ....that not everyone can do this.  I can even tie a knot in a cherry stem with my tongue.  To this day my wife says that sealed the deal when I did it on a date.

    Genetics Or Environment?

    Yes it has been proved that it is a mixture of both.  Studies in twins show it is both genetics and environment.  Wonder which one mine is?

    I Can Do This!

    I have been doing this since childhood.  It drove my parents crazy!  I can curl it and I can twist my tongue both ways (almost up and down).  My hubby can only curl his.

    Science?

    I remember sitting in a science class and the teacher asking who could roll their tongue. The class was about genes and chromosomes and how they make you have different abilities than others so there was a sensible reason for the tongue rolling and we didn't have a weirdo...

    Not Sure Why This Is Special

    aparantly it is. it's good to be able to roll your tounge and generally move it any way you want, I guess some people aren't so 'talented'. But really, I can't imagine a single reason why this would be anything special. Well at least no reason that wouldnt make this an 18+ post...

    Clover

    I can roll my tongue into a "3-leafed clover" and it seems like a useless talent, but my boyfriend would argue with that statement. ;-)

    You Either Can Or Can't

    The neat little tongue roll actually isn't a "practiced" task. I once read that this ability comes from having a certain Gene that ables a person to tongue curl. Bottom line... you can either do it, or you can't! I CAN!

    Taco Tongue

    My dad called this a Taco Tongue and both of us can do it. I used to be able to  make a pretty loud sound by blowing air through it in a certain way, but I've lost my touch with that part of it.

    It Is Funny

    And cute to show to kids that I can roll my tongue, because they try to do the same and some can not. The ones who can do it get so happy about it and it is wonderful to see their smile. Good thing to play with kids... Or with somene special, just in different way&hellip...

    Can't Everyone?

    I thought everyone could roll their tongue. I mean, I can't do the triple roll of anything, I knew that was special, but I thought everyone could to the basic tongue roll.

    I can do lots of things with my tongue.  My tounge, however, I'm not so great with.  Maybe I don't even have one.

    Got the Gene

    This is one of those lessons that science class always teaches on.  Dominant vs. recessive genes, right? Well, I got the right genes, because I'm rolling right now! ;-)

    The Things You Can Do With A Tongue!

    I can roll my tongue and my son has that talent coupled with being able to touch his chin with his tongue. Creepy right now but later in life, he's going to make some woman *extremely* happy!
