Hey guys! It’s Wengie and
double jointed thumb hug!
So today’s video,
we are gonna be exploring how unique we are
and I’m not talking about like a sense of style or fashion
or the fact that you are really weird.
Because I know I am very unique when it comes to weirdness,
but we’re going to be having a looking at whether we can do
some interesting things with our bodies and
that only a certain percentage of humans can do
and I think every single one of us here is definitely unique
I’m sure you can do at least one of these.
So let’s totally celebrate our uniqueness by letting each other know
in the comment box below which one of this we can do
and don’t worry if you can’t do any of these
I’ll teach you how you can learn them
and hold up if you guys aren’t part of my familydon’t forget to click the subscribe button below
and the super cool thing is you’ll be automatically entered into the current macbook air givaway
and the only other thing you need to do is to be part of the givaway is to subscribe to my vlog channel which is linked down below
so good luck and for bonus points don’t forget to click the thumbs up and give this video a like
and if this video gets to a hundred fifty thousand likes that would be amazing
so without further ado, let’s look at how unique each one of us are
So here’s a quick and simple test to see just how unique you are.
So all you need to do is put your hands together,
put your middle fingers over each other and then keep them closed tightly .
Now holding this position, try and separate your ring fingers.
You probably won’t be able to, and it will feel like your fingers are paralysed.
Okay, this feels really weird, guys. I don’t think I can do it.
You can also replicate the same thing on top of a table.
So basically, put one hand on the table, and then bend your middle finger underneath that hand.
You’ll notice that in this position, you can lift your thumb,
your index finger and your little pinky off the table.
But if you try and lift your ring finger off the table,
you won’t be able to.
And the reason this happens is because
all the tendons in your fingers are independent
except for your middle and your ring finger.
So these two fingers share a connected tendon,
so when your middle finger is bent
your ring finger cannot be extended.
So if you’re one of the few people that can actually do this trick,
you are very unique.
Now try this one at home with me guys.
Can you raise your up lip on the one side only?
I actuallly can do this so let’s try it together
if you can do this like me, you have a
那么 没错 你有摇滚之王
Prominent Evis muscle and yes the king of
and yeah Elvis elvin the king of rock
So you’re pretty unique
And this muscle is named after Elvis because of the
famous snarling expression he did all the time that is pretty much known for us
It’s like a mew
This muscle is actually called
Levator labii superioris alaeque nasi
It’s a bit mouthful guys
Actually the longest muscle name that exists on the human body
Now you can be weird like me
Apparently it’s impossible to lick your own elbow
And apparently fifty percent of people that hear this sentence immediately trying do it
Did I catch you? Any of you guys?
There are in fact some people that can do it
And apparently the Guinness Book of Record get at least 5 calls a day from people
that claim that they can do it and that they are special
and if you are one of the few that can actually do it
it means that you have either a shorter upper arm length or are higher flexible
or I guess you could have a super long tongue
But either way you’ll be pretty unique
Hold on, I heard that sentence
Can’t do it
I’m not unique.
So this is a ability when people can actually shake their eyeballs super quickly from side to side
Is that i looks super crazy like that vibrating or juggling around?
我不行 但有人可以 看起来超诡异
And I can’t do it, but I know people who can, and they look surper creepy.
This is an ability called voluntary nystagmus.
And this is quite rare so if you guys can do this, you’ll not only be unique
But you also have a great priority to impress or scare your friends
or maybe get a starring role in the horror movie
So let’s try it together
Ok I think I just looks crazy
And it is
Can you bent touch thumb backwards and touch your forearm?
Let’s try together right now
So as creepiest as this look, I can actually do this
给自己一个标签 #uniquecoins 看到了吗？
Hashtag uniquecoins, get it ?
This is actually an example of higher mobility which occurs in 10 to 20 percent of people
because it is particular joins to be super mobile
and it is sometimes called Ehlers–Danlos syndorme
people can sometimes even bend their knees for it
which is super scary
probably lots of contortionists actually have this syndrome
Don’t worry ！ just having a flexible thumb doesn’t mean you have this syndrome
you need to have severals of problems as well,which thankfully i don’t have
but guys,I always love watching contortionists
and I think it’s such incredible skill
if you can roll your tongue into a chip
Let’s do it together right now
unfortunately this doesn’t make you unique
in fact,70% people can do this
and early 30% can’t
if you are one of the thirty percent that can not do this
别担心 这实际上是个技能 多加练习可以习得
Don’t worry.It’s actually a skill.you can practice.
However,there are some people with additional control their tongues
for example,twisting it from side to side
Let’s try this
not happening. I can’t do it
or even creating patterns on it like cloverleaf
No I suspected as much
these additional skills are definitely much less common and if you can do any of those
you are definitely one of unique ones
can you wake over your ears?Let’s give it a go right now.
it is moving eys?
所以在家这么做时 抬起你的眉头 动你的嘴巴
so if you are doing this at home,and raising your eyebrows , moving your mouth…
you are cheating… like me!
only 10% people have the ability to only move their ears alone
apparently the reason why we can’t move that is that easily was discovered in 2006 by scientists
Ear muscles are actually controlled by nuclears in the brain
separate to all other facial muscles
compare to other animals like bats or cats
this nuclear is actually rather smaller in humans
apparently you can actually learn to activate this nuclears by isolating the muscle in the year over time
but I tried,and can’t follow the figure out how to do it
so if you guys can,you will be one of th very few unique people
that have learned the skill
so be ability to raise one eyebrow is actually not as common as you think
so let’s give it going now,and see which eyebrow you can raise
is it my left?
the right couldn’t happening.
you probabaly seem expression around when someone is being skeptical about you or something.
but if you can’t do this,most commonly you can only do it one side
I meant very few people that can do it on both.
so if you can do it on both,you are definitely considered unique
如果你根本做不了 别担心 就转转眼珠子吧
and if you can’t do it at all,don’t worry.just roll your eyes.
Don’t worry.if your guys are really want to learn this
you can .it’s one of those abilities you can learn over time.
so basically to get start,all you need to do is hold one eyebrow with one hand
and raise the other one wih the other.
like this .
It’s best done with a mirror
and over time you will be able to detect the right musle movement ,
in order to keep one eyebrow up.
Once you’re familiar with this. try doing it without your hand.
and finally you can do one side and practice with the other side
I didn’t actually know you could learn this ability
so now I’m going to try and do it with the other side
网友们 请注意 我注意到 如果只挑起一边的眉毛很多次
Just a warning guys, I’ve noticed just by doing it on one side a lot
one of my eyebrows seem to be higher than the other side and
so definitely practice doing it on both sides.
can you lick your nose or chin with your tongue?
That’s give it a go.
now I think we can wides our face together
so this ability actually quite unique,and it’s also apparently genetics.
so your parents are simply can do this,
so you have very good chance doing this as well.
but if you can’t ,don’t worry.
maybe you are born with right gene.
and apparently only 10% people in the world can do this.
so if you are one of them,you are very unique.
have you guys ever heard the word “gleeking”?
and I’m not referring to the people that watch Glee
gleeking actually happens when saliva accumulates under your tongue.
and shoots out in a just like a sprinkler or snake
gleeking usually occurs accidently from pressures of talking,eating or yawning
对我而言 我知道在刷牙时 或者正要和别人说话的时候 会有
for me ,I know this when cleaning my teeth or unfortunately
sometimes when I am about to speech someone ,and then you tried like pretend nothing happened
Did you know gleeking can aslo be induced?
This is done by pressing the bottom of your tongue up against your palate
and then forcefully pushing your tongue for it.
praticing is usually required to induce gleeking consistently
as well, most people can gleek accidentally
only 1% people can gleek on command
but I don’t know why you wanna do this,
Maybe a pop in the fact that you can say that you’re ungleek.
I’m Penny. I’m Penny.
Have you had fun today?
I truly had fun being full of myself from the camera for you guys by trying these unique abilities
and don’t forget to let me know which ones you can do down below
I thought I want to see you from the wiki confab which is the most common
and which one of these are super unique among us
