Re: Can you raise only one eyebrow?

The people who creep me out the most are the ones who can partially pop their eyeballs out of their sockets and then draw them back in again. Rolling eyes all the way back or moving one independently of the other are fun to watch and pretty impressive but those men and women who go on national television shows or make YouTube videos about popping their eyes out of their orbits...(*heebie jeebie shudder*)

Re: Can you raise only one eyebrow?

I work with a lot of people. I'm constantly arching an eyebrow.

One little strange trick that freaks some people out is when I make a tight fist with my right hand, it always makes a very audible popping noise like a bone is breaking.

If involuntary, that sounds more like nystagmus.

Yup I was going to say nystagmus.

The actor who plays the drunk priest in Constantine has it. So does the flautist James Galway.

Maybe...? I dunno, it never really occurred to me to ask him why his eyes do that. It's very subtle, and you don't even notice it unless you're looking at him directly in the eye, but the motion of his eyes is constant.

I can raise my left eyebrow on its own, but only my left.

They are not Italians. I'm not sure they are actually humans.

I cannot raise any of them. I'd really like to be able to do it.

Re: Can you raise only one eyebrow?

How many of us can write with both hands?

I can, but I don't know if it really counts. I'm right handed and can write with my left, but the legibility of that script is much, much worse than that penned by my right hand. Oh, you can read it...but it looks like I have bad tremors or something.

Most musicians can write legibly with both hands.

Re: Can you raise only one eyebrow?

I can write legibly on my off-hand, but in mirror image.

Re: Can you raise only one eyebrow?

My left hand is virtually useless. Is there an antonym of ambidextrous? Solodextrous? Well, that's me.

Re: Can you raise only one eyebrow?

I can write with both hands. I was born ambidextrous, though years of school tried to drive it out of me, so my script from my left hand is a bit worse than my right hand.
