Is there any pain? It sounds like TMJ issues (I have the same, except it's more of a clicking noise).

:shock: I can absolutely, totally do this too! I have never mentioned it to anyone, but I make my ears make the noise occasionally when I'm concentrating. I hear that roar/rumble in my ears when I make a "focused" face (like Hiro in Heroes) or I can do it on command with no change in facial expression. I'm not really sure what you other guys meant about the tongue muscles thing. It feels like I'm flexing some kind of ear muscle.

Oh, and I guess I have a wandering eye... nobody ever notices it, but I can make my right eye "unplug" from what I'm looking at and drift over to the right corner if I want it to. I suspect it probably isn't good for me, though, so I don't do it often.

I wish I had paid attention to this thread from page 1. There's a lot of interesting things in here.
So I read the last two pages.

Talents: I can hold my body perpendicular to the ground with my hands on the ground (elbows on the hips, hands flat on the ground).
I can (and usually do when given the chance) ascend 10 stair-steps (I don't know the word) in two steps.

Birthmark: ugly blob on the backside of my left knee.

Ear-moving: check.
One eyebrow-raise: check.
Neck-cracking w/o assistance: check.
Ear purring noise thing: check.
Eye twitching thing: check.

Scar: I fell while roller blading down a very steep hill when I was 8. It was fast enough to tear away the skin on my elbow to the bone. It doesn't help that I was nothing but skin and bones anyway. It left a nice scar, though.
Scar 2: I cut my index finger with a razor blade while cutting carpeting. Pretty damn deep too. That left a nice scar.
Scar 3: My backside is a minefield from dozens of pimples.

I am covered in scars since I fell through a window when I was 9. But I don't even remember them being there until somebody asks me about them.

Also, when I yawn, my jaw opens so wide sometimes I can't close my mouth for a good second because of a lump on the side of my jaw bone, if that description makes sense? It feels really weird, and sometimes even scary. It makes me trying not to yawn in public :shock:

this being my third post, i feel I might weird people out about me :P I really *look* perfectly normal.

Hmmm... okay...

My toes are all normal except for the 'index' toes. For some reason, they both curve outward until they bump into the middle toes. I think it's the result of wearing shoes that were too small when my feet were growing.

Same here. Grows pretty quickly too.

I once got a bad head cold, and as a result, for a while every time I'd fall asleep, I'd stop breathing and immediately wake up again (I guess it was Sleep Apneia?) I ended up staying awake for 7 days in row, with NO sleep at all. It was utterly awful :-/

@Artemisia: Actually, I think people want to see those scars. If anything, this thread won't be your downfall here. It's being an arsehole that will get you booted from the pub, savvy?

@joff: Sleep Apnea, or Apnoea. Or that funny one with the combined 'o' and 'e'. And yeah, that's pretty much what it is, even if it isn't the same cause as the actual condition.

Thanks :) nah, I'm not really worried, it's just one of those quirks/unique body things that are hard to hide IRL and the internets are a great place to hide them, so why confess it there? But I think xkcd is such a cool place I didn't really feel weird. My aunt has that jaw-thing too actually.

Concerning scars: It is actually very hard to show them all in a single photo, and I would have to undress a fair deal too. And yea, I know people here wouldn't mind that neither ;)

@Artemisia: I think just a general picture would be more than fine. Most people post themselves anyway. I've never seen anyone with numerous accidental scars (plenty with intentional, but that's different, jah?).

Incidentally: I am hypersensitive.

I can pop my thumbs, if you guys know what that means. Like, it can bend back really far with a bit of a pop on the joint. I also have hitch-hiker's thumb, so I'm pretty much set if I need to hitch-hike.
I can also crack my neck by bending it, and by bending over backwards and pressing on it with my thumbs I can crack my back. And my toes, by curling them. I'm gonna have horrible arthritis when I'm 50.
My teeth attract plaque like peasants attract hungry dragons.
I have short fingers. And tiny feet. Like, 8 1/2s.
My eyes can change colors in different shades of light. (But only from green-blue to green-grey)
When it comes to scars, I have one crescent-shaped, nearly invisible one around my right eye orbit from when my brother thought "Snowball fight" meant "Hurl ice at unprotected areas fight", one on my arm from...well, before I took antidepressants, and one on my leg from my damn cats.

A lot of my joints pop - starting from the bottom:
Knees, tailbone, spine, breastbone, collar bone, fingers, wrists, elbows, shoulders, neck.
This has always been the case for me. My collar bone really pops and I was never good at doing push-ups due to the repetitive motion (and popping). I think that I was dropped down the stairs by my sister as a baby....

I've never had a nosebleed. I've been punched in the nose too, just nothing gets that happening.
For that matter I have a hard time bleeding (which is usually a good thing). I used to donate blood though, and the nurses were always very concerned about the fact that it would take me 45 minutes to fill a bag that it too others 5-15 minutes.
I also always find myself getting head rushes, and have really learned to control myself when I am losing consciousness (I rarely fall, and even rarer do I black out from it anymore).

As for other things:
I am able to hyper-extend most of my joints and am extremely flexible.
I can make a perfect wookie noise, among other animals.

Ear-moving: check.
One eyebrow-raise: check.
Neck-cracking w/o assistance: check.
Ear purring noise thing: check.
Eye twitching thing: check.

Scars:
1: Last year I was in a car accident and got a scalp full of glass. Last piece that I found was in November. Underneath my hair, there are some nice lines where there is no hair, and a good patch where the staples were :) I also got a couple of bumps on my ear where glass cut into that (and since cartilage doesn't heal I can still feel the bumps), and a small slice over my nose and eye.
2: When I was younger I fell while running down a gravel road hill when we were camping. We were using my grandparents RV and they stocked it with a medikit from some ancient time. I was picking gravel out of that for a good long time too, but iodine was not the most pleasant antibiotic that could have been put on my wounds.

This happens to me too! Sometimes I yawn "too hard" and then it feels like I get a cramp right underneath my right jawbone (from my perspective) and it really really really hurts for a while. Usually if it happens once then it will keep happening if I open my mouth too far, and sometimes it keeps happening regardless of how I move my mouth.

The only way I can describe it is a cramp... it feels like some of your muscle has locked up - also the pain is similar.

Where it happens... if you get your right hand and place your finger at the end of your lower jaw on the same side as your hand then slide your finger down until your finger is no longer touching bone, then push in and up a bit - that is where I get the "cramp".

I can bend my knees backwards; my joints, I was told when I was very young, are (or at least used to be) more flexible than average. Or something to that effect.

I can also 'crack' my wristsright wrist by quickly bending them backwards. But the strangest part is that I can do that as many times as I want! Meaning I don't have to wait for 'air bubbles' (the reason, I've been told, behind cracking joints) to form. Don't do it often, though, it makes me uncomfortable thinking I might somehow hurt myself.

I totally popped my navel piercing today. Spoilered for eww.
Spoiler:
I've been fiddling with it a lot this week and it's been really irritated, seeping a lot, etc. Earlier I could not get a single bit of pus out of it, so I took the piercing out and squeezed... it was like a belly button apocalypse. It was so cool, and it was a bit thicker than the usual consistency. It was almost like the walls of the piercing hole had started to build a pus lining, which tried to retain its shape as it was forced out but couldn't because it was crazy sorta-gelatinousy pus.

I was standing in the checkout line to buy a shirt today. It was full of Dr. Seuss book titles and drawings of different characters, and perfect for me to wear to work. As I step up to the cashier, I notice the words "Fox in Sock's" and I realized I could never, ever wear that shirt. With a single tear, I left the store empty-handed.

Yeah, I had my navel pierced for about a month. I was moving a lot of boxes at work and continuously snagged it on everything so it never became a happy piercing and as such I took it out to save myself the grief.

Give it a good hot salt soak and that should cheer it up. It usually pulls the puss out and cleans the piercing nicely. :)

Yes, I think that is common. I used to be 30x30 back in 10th grade. Then the growth spurt took care of that. I'm currently 33x32, 33x31 during finals week :-/

I can do that too ! I never knew how it was called so thanks :)

Also strangely I knew how to make an ocarina with may hands when I was 10, but didn't manage to whistle normally until 17... even now I can't whistle very loudly.

Me and my sisters all inherited a mole from our mother just above the navel.

I can expand my belly A LOT, almost as if I was pregnant ! (haven't tried it for some time though...)

If I haven't eaten within a few hours, I can suck my gut RIGHT in. So it's about 2 inches from my spine to my bellybutton. Sometimes less.

I used to do it as a kid to freak people out. ^.^

Also I can "turn off" parts of, or even my entire body if I concentrate a little. It means I don't shiver when cold, don't shudder from heat, don't laugh when tickled, and barely even wince when I take a hit to the knackers. (Yes, I was once stupid enough to let one of my friends have a go whilst I shut myself down. I didn't turn it back on until I had an icepack on my crotch. It was a valuable decision.)

"The People's Eyebrow"

Here's a thing. I play guitar right handed (my left hand does all the fancy stuff on the fretboard), and I am right handed. This is how most right handed people play. But my right hand's fingers are smoother, stronger, and much more naturally dexterous than my left hand's fingers... I'm assuming most right handed people are like this... so why do right handed players, use their left hand to do the fretwork on a guitar? :P
Spoiler:
Also I have a MASSIVE PENIS.
Hehe, just kidding. It's normal. Swear.
No, seriously, it's huge.
