Pixoid said, “…I’m double-jointed in my shoulders and elbows. This means that my elbows bend backwards a bit (about 20 degrees?). I can link both hands in front of me and pull them over my head and behind my back without letting go. And I can go backwards, too…”
I can do that too! Another freak like me. I can also step through them afterwards and keep going. I have only gone up to 67 though, because it feels a little strange and it gets boring after a bit. I once looked through a freak magazine and when I got to the contortionist part, I noticed that I could do everything that they were doing and then some others not shown. It was nice. I can also stand in a doorway and twist around a full 360 degrees with my feet in a stationary position and look back in the same direction. My legs are just as flexible. I have not been able to do that auto-fellatio thing since I developed a belly, but I used to be able to do it. If you don’t know, don’t ask. I can also collapse my metacarpal bones (in the hand but not the fingers or the wrist) enough to get out of handcuffs, ropes, etc. (It has been a problem often enough for me to learn that one.) I can twist, turn, flex, in practically any direction imagineable (sp?). I can also fold my tongue into one, two, three, five, and seven points only using my tongues musculature. The seven gets kind of tricky and is tiring, but it is still possible. (Most people who can fold their tongues can only do a single point.)
It is nice knowing someone else can do the “circle trick”. It is what I called the arm-thing after I discovered that I could do it. The best part is that there really is not a trick to it at all contrary to what many of my friends would think. I am sure that we are some of the few people who would actually be able to get out of a straight jacket rather easily because we both can do it.
