British stiff upper lip and all.
Ah, sure...we don't do that here. I use my face constantly.
So do I, but then I'm an ignorant foreigner.
Sir Roger Moore is a legend. That is all.
And yes, I can raise my eyebrow. More on the left, but I have been training the right too. I've got a long way to go before emulating these two undisputed masters, though:
Ditto with the aforementioned lip-curl. Tongue curling, very small ear waggling movements, and hyperextensiveness in the hand joints seem to come naturally to me too, though I haven't done the latter in a long time.
Rolling the Rs, however, is something I can never do.
This thread reminds me of one of those misspent childhood evenings we had with an older relative, where the atmosphere could be broken with a simple question: "Can you do this with your hands?"
^ I can rotate my wrists 360 degrees. People find it entertaining (not to mention a little distressing) when I put my hand flat on a table and turn it in a complete circle.
Aiding this is the fact that the rest of my arm is twisting as well, which is what gives the hand its range. But it means that by the time the hand has rotated 360, the elbow has only done 180. It still bends normally, but it's facing the opposite direction from normal. THAT is what people really find distressing.
I can do it with either hand, but it's painful to do both at the same time.
But that that will go over big at parties too. Do it!
I taught myself to raise my right eyebrow and also to wiggle my ears when I was a teenager. But the ear-wiggling requires a lot of concentration to do at all, and they don't wiggle that much, and other features tend to move at the same time. Probably because I don't practice that anywhere near as often as I practice the eyebrow.
That was almost 30 years ago. Once I made the breakthrough with the right eyebrow, I wasn't motivated to do the left. I don't know if I could learn it now or not.
While I appreciate I'd be providing great free entertainment, the trip to the ER isn't worth it.
I know, I'm a spoilsport.
I can raise both my eyebrows independently, wiggle my ears, roll my tongue, and all that at the same time, whilst rubbing my belly with one hand, patting my head with the other, and jumping around on one leg.
It's an amusing sight to imagine.
I call it... "The dance of my people".
Yes I can do it, the right one I can do independently, but to raise the left one I have to force the right one down.
I think when I was younger I practised being Spock and The Rock a lot
I can, but only my right. I have to push the left one down in order to raise just the right one up. So I basically furrow my brow and the lift the right brow.
Yes. Only my right one. When I try to do the left I end up closing my right eye for some reason.
I don't have the facial features for raising an eyebrow anyways. Doesn't look at all impressive, just lopsided.
I'm Italian. I can't not do it.
No, I can't.
Yes, but I can only raise my left eyebrow. My right eyebrow refuses to budge.
Conversely, I can wink with my right eye, but I can't wink with my left one.
I can raise my left, not my right!
I can also raise and lower each one seperately.
Pictures! All of you!
