Well, I feel more Scottish than not.

Re: Can you raise only one eyebrow?

I can't raise only one eyebrow, I can't roll my tongue, I can't roll my R. I feel genetically impaired...again.

Re: Can you raise only one eyebrow?

I can roll my tongue, I just can't "crinkle" it like some people seem to be able to do. The most impressive crinkling of the tongue I think I've ever seen is when a girl druggie in the very first Cheech and Chong film (Up in Smoke) pops and crinkles her tongue in a pretty disturbing way that still creeps me out a little after all these years.

And that was a low-budget comedy from 1978 so there were no effects involved.

I can arch either eyebrow.

I like to arch both at the same time and say "Fascinating" in a logical voice.

Re: Can you raise only one eyebrow?

I can only raise both eyebrows simultaneously. Not one individually.

Although I can send bricks to sleep via hypnosis.

Re: Can you raise only one eyebrow?

I can raise my right eyebrow really easily, but it takes a lot of effort to do my left on its own, and I can't get it as far. I'm also doublejointed. People sometimes get creeped out with what I can do with my thumbs.

Sorry about the mix-up. Dunno how it happened. I corrected it.

What you guys can do with your Rs is funny, weird, and unexplainable by science.

I have a friend whose eyes do this on their own. His eyes are in fact never not doing this. Kinda weird.
