I can invariably open a paperback to the exact page I had left off at. ninja I know, pretty special, huh? snore

Now I guess some of this could be explained by the slight pressure that my fingers would have used when holding the book that last time, so you would be more likely to open to that same page?

But I am pretty careful with my books. I don't use bookmarks, I don't prop up the book in a 'tent' when I need to pause in reading, and I certainly don't fold any pages.

So what the heck? We're not talking 200-page books (although that would still be weird), we're talking sometimes 1000 page novels here.

So I thought I'd open this up to see what weird abilities we have lurking in the shadows......

What's yours?

I have the same ability - never use bookmarks, but I can always find my page within 10 or 15 seconds. My wife always doubts that it's possible, but she hasn't tripped me up yet. I can do it with any book though, soft or hard cover.

Most problems can be solved with either a stiff drink, a bowel movement, or a bullet.

The ability of using my nose as a beverage dispenser. Seems to only happen though when I browse on Chit Chat and seems to always cost me a keyboard.

I can create large amounts of static build up to the point where you can see a 1/2" arc shoot out when I discharge it. I can do it while siting still and butt naked, so it's not clothing or the way I walk. I have to make sure not to shock people or things by finding a ground every minute or so. I've had an electoral outlet electrocute me from an inch away into my ankle.

For some reason since highschool about once a month I will be thinking of a particular song, and when I turn on the radio that particular song is playing, on the very station my radio is set to (I dont go searching for it). Its not always the newest hit or single and what not either, so its not just me thinking of whats popular at the moment as its getting alot of play time. Havent been able to figure out how to turn this into cash flow though .

Ive always been curious about the whole knot in a cherry stem thing etc. And everyone Ive asked cant explain how they do it. So I'll ask my usual question, how in the world do you do that?

I can do it.

You have to get the loop first. It starts straight obviously. Then you get it into a U shape, and finally get it into a full circle. Then you tuck one end through the circle. After that you just tighten it up a bit to make sure it holds.

Edit: the physical action of doing it can be different every time. Most of the time I end up holding one end with my teeth (just barely, since you need all the slack you can get) and making the loop and tuck all with my tongue. Other times it's just a lot of wedging it around with my tongue.

Wow, I didn't know ELECTORALS had outlets. That must be cool when they're voting for president.
