15 Awesome Human Superpowers

Some people work hard, train hard, educate themselves and push themselves to the very limit to gain some kind of notoriety in life (and the money it tends comes hand-in-hand with). This video is proof that, in addition to being inherently gifted, there are other ways to become famous… be exceptionally stupid. Eating metal screws makes you an idiot. Just because you survive your diet of cars, wheelchairs and bad life choices doesn’t make you special.

Having said that, there are some incredible cases of human superpowers in this video, such as the “human calculator” and the man who learned conversational Icelandic in just one week. My only superpower is being able to make my one eye squint – actually I have two if you count the other one, but that’s far too lascivious to mention here – and so my concluding question to you is: what’s your superpower?

Domain Eukarya, kingdom Animalia (Metazoa), phylum Chordata, class Mammalia, order Primates, family Hominidae, genus Homo, species Homo sapiens, subspecies Homo sapiens sapiens... essentially. I have a Master's Degree in Atmospheric science, which doesn't entitle me to be generous with my opinion, but my sense of self importance does! I love writing, I love science, I love reading, but I'm not nuts about long walks on the beach. Short to medium walks are preferable. This is my blog and I have something important to say: https://whybecausescience.wordpress.com/

    1. How on Earth does one fake burp? Do you mean that you can make non-burp sounds that mimic the real thing? Actually, that would be better than being able to burp on command! All the funny without the lunchbox smell, haha!

      1. No, I simply swallow in air which travels to the pit of my neck, and let it back out in the form of a burp, as gross as that sounds. But it does come without the lunchbox smell! Used to do this a lot as a kid.

      2. Haha! Thank you for calling it admirable!! It’s not something people brag about anyway, and I guess I was really bored when I thought, “Let me write this comment!”. Glad that you found it hilarious! 🙂
