I can cure anybody's hiccups 100% of the time. Been doing it for 30 years and it hasn't failed once. My favorite happened about 10 years ago, I was sitting in a diner in the French Quarter in New Orleans at 3am with a few friends. This lady walks in who looks like she'd been run through the ringer. She was beet red, and looked like she'd been crying. We were sitting by the door and I asked her what's wrong. She said she been hiccuping for three hours. I cured them in under a minute. She was stunned and so grateful and kept thanking me over and over. My friends looked at me like I was a guru of some sort.

Here's the trick: Use your fingers to plugs your ears and nose at the same time tightly. I press on my ears with my thumbs and use my index fingers to plug my nose. Keep your mouth closed tightly and swallow a few times. If you have trouble swallowing without something, then sip water through a straw.
It has NEVER failed! You're welcome.

I can tell what time it is without looking at the clock beforehand, and I am usually very close to reality. It's a mixture of estimating daylight intensity, how much time has passed since I last looked at the time, what people around me are doing...

I almost never get lost. I'm very good at mental maps or almost anything. I remember a house that my grandparent's moved out of when I was 5. I only got the placement of one closet wrong. I can always get back to a place I've been to having only been there once, maybe twice if it was dark. Funny thing is I cannot tell my right from my left, at all I can't do it, it takes me too long to try to remember which hand is which, you have to watch my hands if I'm giving directions, but my directions are always spot on, with visual cues (like buildings or a sign). If I'm in the car with someone I'm prone to telling people, take a your direction or a my direction.

Some creative people can see songs as colors, whereas I can see certain names as pictures. As a Finnish person I am specialized in Finnish family names, towns and place names. Some names are self-explanatory and very easy to illustrate but abstract names always have the specific sound that takes shape in my mind. Funny thing is that when I tell people about this talent they want to see their own last name illustrated. Very amusing but totally useless talent. (My last name "Turunen" looks like grass with a thistle-like tuft.)

I have synesthesia . I see music and songs as colours. The best way for me to describe it is when I hear music or songs it looks like I am watching a silent fireworks display where the fireworks are dancing in time to the music. It all different colours too as each different musical part and instrument and voice has its own separate colour and movement. For example T.N.T for the Brain by Enigma or I'll Find My Way Home by Jon and Vangelis are just a riot of colours for me. I also see people's names as a series of colours too. All different colours usually 4 or 5 for each and every name.

I can do a lot of weird things with my face.
- Raise and lower eyebrows one at a time, make "waves" with them, wiggle them along music etc.
- Vibrate my eyes
- Cross my eyes one at a time
- Blur my vision without squinting or seeing double
- Move my nostrils like a bunny
- "Squint" my nostrils
- Touch tip of my nose and chin with my tongue
- Roll my tongue and then bend it in half while still rolled
- Form a trifold and a cup with my tongue
- Wiggle my scalp
- Wiggle my eardrums (you can see it with an otoscope XD )
- Lower my ears' hearing for a little while using the aforementioned eardrum wiggle muscles (this is actually useful) - when I do it, I hear a humming noise and the eardrum stiffens making it harder for sound to pass through
- Play simple tunes like childrens' songs by knocking on my head. (Also while brushing my teeth.)

There's probably more. Most of these are difficult to show to people because I can't do them while laughing/uncontrollably smiling... :D

I can skip things on water in interesting ways. I don't mean I can skip rocks an insane amount of times, but rather I can skip rocks (or other materials) in far from ordinary fashion. A good example of this is when I skipped a shell 3 or 4 times on a marsh from over dunes, 70 feet away. Another time, I skipped a couple fish I had found in some turtle traps I was pulling up (set for a herpetological study, not for consumption). Not something that would ever be helpful, but a fun trick all the same.

When I kiss somebody on the forehead (like my children and husband), I can detect a fever with very high accuracy. Typically within 0.1 degrees Fahrenheit. I have started verifying my accuracy this last year and have always been within that margin of error, at least when compared to my forehead thermometer. It doesn't feel like heat when I kiss them though, it feels spicy and tingly on my lips, and the higher the temperature the more intense that feeling is and the longer it stays around. About 30 seconds for a super mild fever, to hours for a higher fever. So I guess this is marginally useful in the context of my family and always having a thermometer nearby, but absolutely useless beyond that. I am not into kissing the foreheads of feverish strangers, nor do I imagine they would want to be kissed by me when there is a readily available instrument designed for exactly that purpose... Plus, it isn't the most hygienic way to get the job done.

I remember phone numbers, ID numbers any number, but names, I am very bad at remembering names.

This isn't as cool as other things people put here but I can walk on my heels for a very, very, long time. For hours.

1 time I walked with high hills 24 hours. Went to work at 6 am (house - work 1 hour away) then got home only with enough time to take shower and change clothes, dress for this weeding that I would photograph until morning. Were very confortable high hills though.

I can suck in all of my guts except for my abdomen. It looks pretty weird. I can also make a tounge clover, and a few finger tricks. I can also do one sign (American sign language) with my toes. I can sign “people”

I also have a couple more, like I remember one of my past lives, and I have Deja Vu a lot, I’m good at makeup, I have scary good impressions of some of the characters from my hero academia, I can raise my eyebrows by themselves or together, and some would say I’m good at singing and acting

I can touch my nose with my tongue.

I can cross all my fingers on both hands at the same time (so index over thumb, then middle over index, then ring finger above middle finger and pinky locked over ring finger). Pretty useless, and I haven't met anyone else that could do it.

I can tell what people are going to say before they say it. Multiple times I know exactly what my mom 8s going to say and respond to her question without her even asking. Kinda cool though.

My son, not me. He is a walking comic book Encyclopedia. I started getting him comic books at a very young age as my family was into them when I was young (he had over 5000 before an accident lost them all ten years ago). Over the years, his friends, co-workers and even friends of friends would call him up to ask questions or to try to test him. This started before internet and cell phones. I can't tell you the number of times he would get calls at all hours of the day and night because someone needed to have an argument resolved. He is in his 30's now and it is still the same only now he gets the majority of his comics digitally.

I can make a very strange sound. Idk how to describe it. It sounds like an angry Donald Duck. It kinda sounds like: Zwheee zwheee zwheee zwheee

I can also make myself laugh hysterically or cry my eyes out at any given moment.

I can pick up almost anything with my toes. Proudly practicing since 1990.

I can whistle really melodically, but not loudly. For example I can whistle shape of you but can't do a wolf whistle.

Well, I have a knack for getting me and my friends out of trouble at school. I can act pretty well. If we get in trouble, I can cry on the spot, or come up with a pretty sweet alibi. It probably helps that there are dozens of people who owe me favours.

I can whistle pretty much any song I hear, and imitate some birds fairly well ^^

I also can push down the tip of my nose. The bone ends early...so it looks really weird. Like I can push it all the way down. Haven't met anybody else who can...they say it hurts. Try it.

My useless talent is seeing the future in dreams. I never remember them until the future actually happens, however.

I can't get fat no matter how much I eat and I can also make most of my joints crack by just rolling them (shoulders, elbows, wrists, knees, ankles, neck)

I know when something I need is at the thrift store. Like, exactly what I'm looking for - type, brand, everything. I usually dream about it the night before. It's a stupid psychic power to have. But it's saved me a lot of $ over the years, so I guess that's cool.

I don't know if this counts, but when I listen to music played by multiple people, I can identify pretty much all the instruments being played. I can even isolate a certain instrument or voice and just hear that apart from all the others

I doubt that's unusual. Focusing on one voice and tuning out others is exactly what people do when they have conversations in crowded places. Not all people can identify instruments well, but that's likely just ignorance, not inability.

I have a really weird thing for remembering everyone’s birthday. People I met a long time ago who mentioned their birthday or acquaintances are surprised when I still remember a long time later. Teachers would have me tell them everybody in the class’s birthday. I don’t know how I do it, but I know many people’s birthdays that I don’t even know very well.

Yeah I can do this too. I remember a lot of Birthdays I wish to forget :/ I asked someone their Birthday & bam months later I'm saying Hey!! Happy Birthday here are some flowers! It's expensive.. Since I'm a given and feel the urge to buy gifts. It's also lonely because rarely anyone has rememberd or cared about mine.

I don’t really know if this is a talent or something but I have great hearing and can tell who is walking/running by the rhythm and sound of their footsteps. I don’t really think this is that special since another friend of mine can do this too.

This might be another talent I don’t know but I always know when it’s raining even if there is no sound or I only had just woke up. When it’s raining I always feel very happy no matter when.
