I do the elbow coin grab, too... but how is it a secret talent when you show everyone you know? I don't remember seeing in on Happy Days. A friend at school showed me how to do it and I just thought it was really cool so I kept practicing.

Most of my other 'talents' are not really secret either.

Good point Z... I guess I meant 'Hidden Talents'?.... 'Strange Talents?'... Anyhoo, I had a best friend in gradeschool that first showed me how to do it with one penny. Maybe she saw the Happy Days show, I don't know, But I practiced it all the time when I was little. Then this weekend, while we were all sitting around, I decided to try to beat my record of 12 pennies..... and got 25! I tried to do 27 pennies about 3 times, and kept dropping 2 of them each time. Oh well...

I can wiggle my ears, together or singly, with or without raising my eyebrows, together or singly, same or opposite side at the same time, while talking to you and/or cooking. (This is called split/mixed dominance) While I am not ambidextrous, there are some things I do left handed only, and others I do right handed only. (and yes I can roll and flip my tongue, but can't do zilch with a cherry stem.)

That's pretty cool Robo.. I can move my right ear (not so much, wiggle..) but can't seem to make my left ear move.. Pretty weird stuff..

I can take a nap for five hours on a Saturday afternoon with a sink full of dishes and not care one bit.

I'm a man, I can change, if I have to...

My talent: I can balance many stacks of pennies on my elbow and catch them with that same hand... Kinda hard to explain it without showing you... My current record is 25 pennies!

So what are your talents??
i know eaxctly what your talking about. you have them on your elbow and then you swing your arm with your hand cupped and you catch them all in your hand. i do it all the time.
