Maybe a contortionist could, but the average perso.. no way!

peedub's avatar

Ouch, my neck/tongue/arm hurts now.

mcbealer's avatar

no, my arms are too long

atr408's avatar

I get soo close yet I’m still so far away :(

BEEN_azzaed_inhabot's avatar

Oh my god! I can!

atr408's avatar

no you can’t

BEEN_azzaed_inhabot's avatar

I just tried to lick my right elbow…

babygalll's avatar

You all actually have free time to try that??

atr408's avatar

BEEN_azzaed_inhabot's avatar

ty allie, for appreciating myever growing abilities in this world of mere mortals….

Allie's avatar

I’m sure there are people who CAN lick their elbows, why shouldn’t it be you?

xxporkxsodaxx's avatar

Well my friend Zach isn’t a contortionist but he able to lick his elbow but he has some weird joint thing that lets him play jump rope with his arms and pull his leg around like 190 degrees

atr408's avatar

that sounds painful

peedub's avatar

I can lick my palm real well.

Riser's avatar

peedub: Is that a hairypalm?

*Delirum shudders

xxporkxsodaxx's avatar

@atr, you should see it, it looks soooo wrong

atr408's avatar

haha. I bet it does

delirium's avatar

I can lick mine. Both of them. From both sides.

atr408's avatar

haha lucky? Why would you want to be able to do that?

xxporkxsodaxx's avatar

Just because I can’t really do anything unusual besides make smoke in my mouth, solve math problems really quick, and write well lol

BEEN_azzaed_inhabot's avatar

Make smoke in ur mouth?

xxporkxsodaxx's avatar

Like if you can make a hard clicking noise then you can do it, like you just close your mouth when you do it. Do it a few times, blow with your mouth closed(if that makes sense, like as if you were going to pop your eardrums) then slowly breathe out. It would make more sense if you watched someone do it.

hmm I never realy thought what I can do well. In good at skateing and uhhh… Eating?

atr408's avatar

do they have a youtube video of someone making smoke in their mouth?

kevbo's avatar

I only got as far as my armpit, and then I got distracted.

xxporkxsodaxx's avatar

Obviously not too good with spelling though lol *skating. And you seem like the person who would enjoy giving PTC to his friends. Look for it, you can buy test strips for like 2 or 3 bucks.

xxporkxsodaxx's avatar

They should, I’ll look.

atr408's avatar

Haha. I knew how to spell it ;) but what is ptc? Perent tearcher club?

xxporkxsodaxx's avatar

Haha no its a chemical that tastes absolutely horrible but it depends on you genes if you can taste it or not. And as for the smoke stuff, the video is an instructional and the smoke isn’t too good but when you do it for a while you will be able to make more, and I would say ignore those lip movements and just keep the front of your mouth flat but making a fist and putting pressing it firmly against your mouth.

atr408's avatar

so you rhink im the kind of person who would poison my friends? Lol

xxporkxsodaxx's avatar

Its not poison, its like really hot hot sauce but instead of burning, it tastes really bitter.

atr408's avatar

do u know of a video of the smoke thing on youtube because I’m on a iPod touch and metacafe doesn’t work for videos on it

xxporkxsodaxx's avatar

I looked and it was only people with smoke rings and cigarettes. I’ll look for one, and if not I might just make one because it’s not too hard.

atr408's avatar

o well I found one of a kid. I tried and my tounge gets realy tired. I could only try 3 times

xxporkxsodaxx's avatar

I’m not surprised, it took forever for me to do it a bunch.

ebenezer's avatar

wow! I did it just from reading your instructions. Pretty cool.

richardhenry's avatar

Photos or it didn’t happen.

atr408's avatar

haha I agree about the pics

glial's avatar

Nope, just my eyebrows.

TheHaight's avatar

Nope. Tried and hurt myself. :( but!! my tongue can reach the tip of my nose if that is just as cool???

wildflower's avatar

I can lick the ‘inside’ (opposite – no idea what it’s called) of my elbow…..and it tickles!

atr408's avatar

haha. Wow it does tickle

craziprincess's avatar

I can’t, but one of my co-workers can. She’s double jointed and can bend in the weirdest ways. So it’s possible, just not very natural.

AstroChuck's avatar

No, I have to get others to lick it for me.

Mrs_Dr_Frank_N_Furter's avatar

i can!!! omg I thought it was impossible. I had surprisingly never tried, but I can!

aidje's avatar

My sister can lick her elbow. I cannot lick mine. Does this mean one of us was adopted?

AstroChuck's avatar

Or that your mom was dropping acid during one of the pregnancies, but not the other.

mangeons's avatar

nope :’(

evelyns_pet_zebra's avatar

Does getting within two inches of licking my elbow count? Wait, don’t answer that, as I just thought of a really good (smarty pants) reply, but one that the moderators would surely delete. Aha, self censorship wins again!

delirium's avatar

That’s why you put it in small type with giggling after.

smirphie363's avatar

i am in no way double-jointed or even flexible, but i can lick my elbow. and no i don’t mean the inside, or licking my finger then touching my elbow. i can full-on lick my elbow directly with my tongue.

ShauneP82's avatar

i know somebody who can. I seen him do it. It is possible.

essieness's avatar

I can lick a lot of things, but not my own elbow.

phoenyx's avatar

I can’t, but my sister can; easily.

Judi's avatar

my Brother in law has fetal alcohol syndrone and his arms are shorter than most. I bet he can!

Sariperana's avatar

I can lick yours if you want?

w2pow2's avatar

@sariperana I graciously accept your offer…

Sariperana's avatar

@w2pow2 A lick for a lick?

w2pow2's avatar

@Sariperana Well…. someone likes to be the lickee…

tandra88's avatar

They say it’s scientifically impossible.

TheOnlyException's avatar

I read that it is physically impossible.
But then I consider contortionists, so I guess SOME people can..

Coloma's avatar

Someone has too much time on their hands! lol

I nominate this question as the most inane I have yet to come across in my 6 weeks on fluther! hahaha
