Things That Your Body Can’t Do

Published by DarkHelmet in Science

Here are some things that you body just can’t do.

  1. Touching your elbow with your tongue is impossible, but there are a few people who can reach their elbow with their tongue.
  2. Sneezing with your eyes open is impossible because when you sneeze the “sneezing centre” of your brains sends cordinated impulses to your belly, breast, neck and to the muscles controlling your eyelids. It all occurs automatically and without your control.
  3. Tickling yourself won’t work. The reason of that is our brains. The brains can predict the movements of your hands, but not the movement of other peoples hands. When a person tries to tickle himself the brain predicts the feeling of tickling and therefore interrupting the reacting to tickling.
  4. To draw a number six and make rings with your right/left(depends if you’re right- or left handed) foot clockwise is hard but it is possible to do. Try it a few times and you’ll do it.

    Thx, I’ll try to write something about the other things you mentioned, but you don’t have to use caps 10 times in every sentence.
