In the grand scheme of things, singing is pretty useless.
I can attract strange drunken men with body-odour problems from miles away (although i haven't quite learnt how to control that power yet.)
And I can wake up, periodically at 5AM every day, without an alarm, or even a reason.
Hooray for that one.

I can stretch further into the splits or get my voice higher than any male should be able to, I'm really good at playing the vibraphone with bows instead of mallets, and I can type with a graphing calculator really fast.

Also I can breath fire and eat babies without doing any harm whatsoever to them.

I can make fart noises with my hands, regardless of if they're wet or not. Pretty sure a lot of people can do that though...

I can do this weird undulating sort of thing with my index fingers.

Too bad that it's impossible to describe well.

I can do that.

Can anybody hear make some sort of loud clacky noise with your fingers if you hit them against anything? I can do that. I can also teach people how to do that.

1. Hold hands up with all fingers spread apart from each other.

2. Place one hand on top of the other, palm-to-palm.

3. Hold your hands in front of your chin with your thumbs facing you.

4. HIT IT

Wow, that is cool.
Add that clacky thing to my list of useless talents.
Also being able to figure something out from fairly vague instructions.

You're whacking the sides of your knuckles against your chin basically.

Actually you can do it with the tips of your fingers too.

Also, Greg, it doesn't matter where you hit it. Tables, chairs, knee, chin...it's all clackable.

You can also do this:

1. Lay your opposite hand on a desk/table/whatever in front of you like you're gonna shake somebody's hand. That means thumb side up.

2. Lay your dominant hand a tiny distance away from it, with the palm on the desk/whatever.

3. Make your dominant hand hit your opposite hand. ONE-HANDED CLACKING

I can wind my arm around my head so it touches my chin or, when I'm not wearing a pony tail, my ear. It's pretty useless, but I had some funny times performing a certain scene from "Jurassic Park" with it back at school. (You know, that scene where the woman, I think her name was Sarah, is sent to operate the generator and suddenly, the arm of that dead guy falls on her shoulder and she thinks she's safe. ;))
Oh, and I can also fake snoring pretty convincingly. It's just not of much use to me, because I don't snore when I'm actually asleep, so I can't fool anybody with it.

I can ride my bike with no handlebars.

I can keep rhythm with no metronome.

I can lead a nation with a microphone, etc.

EDIT: *looks up* Oh, lol, I'm late.

I can do this, too. It probably helps that I've been in band for about six years now.

Also, I can bend both thumbs ninety degrees backwards, which is apparently not something everyone can do.
