    I too can pick up things with my toes, they're stong enough to grip billiard balls.

    I've never lost a grand final of any sport I've played. Have lost semi finals and prelims but if the team I'm in has made the GF we've always won.

    I also remember ridiculously stupid things that no person should ever remember then forget tings I need to do that I thought about 5 minutes beforehand.

    I can skim a chart and remember everything relavent months later. Sometimes I bump into former patients and I mentally recite their chart. It just automatically happens. Along the same lines, if someone tells me something I'll remember it, no matter how insignificant and unimportant it is. I downplay this because it makes me feel like a creeper.

    You can pick things up... but can you throw objects across a room with your feet? Tennis balls are really easy, picking up and throwing two golf balls (one foot) is trickier.

    I have the worst super power ever. And not in that 'wow, it seems kind of cool 'Midas' type of superpower, then you realize it's time to eat and you're fucked' kind of superpower. No, mine just sucks the ass out of a dead giraffe.

    I can NOT get laid in any, every, and absolutely no way you can avoid it, situation.

    Yup.

    Oh, yes, bow down to my greatness. And by greatness, I mean my soon to be blind ass.

    I have roughly half of imdb in my head. Any time anyone at work has a question about who was in what, I can probably name the actor, and at least two or three other things they've been in.

    FOCUS: The power to drain your will to fight! As a kid, I was in a lot of fights. But you can't really call them fights because I've never thrown a punch. I've never walked away, never backed down, never thrown a punch and never been defeated. Every time some guy has tried to beat me up, I take my licks without flinching and without attempting to block. I stare them in the eyes and they walk away every time.

    And they'd give up quickly. Only time I had to take more than three punches was when I was outnumbered 3 to 1. Probably, this was just a kid thing. I don't think I've been in a fight since high school.

    ANTI-FOCUS: I recently discovered my anti-power, I can't recognize faces.

    I became a substitute teacher a couple years ago and quickly developed methods for memorizing 30 names in five minutes. But once I started subbing elementary schools, where I'd have the same kids all day, I realized that I couldn't memorize any faces. I'd learn all their names in the morning. Then they'd go out to recess and come back in all hot and sweaty, so they'd take off their jackets. Suddenly, I couldn't recognize any of the students. After some weeks of this I realized that I was never learning anyone's face, I only learned their clothing.

    And what's more, I essentially was recognizing their colors. If two students had the same color hair and T-shirt, I was never going to figure out which was which.

    I'd call that "not having the balls to defend yourself". Standing there and taking punches, yeah the other dude is going to walk away after he gets bored of pounding your face. I wouldn't exactly call that victory.

    FOCUS: I can fix things easily. Nothing too complicated, but I have an ability to analyze the parts of something and how they fit together. I also have an immense capacity for giving logical advice that cuts through emotion and simply focuses on resolving the issue effectively, whilst retaining an inability to apply such insight to myself.

    I can make Aryan babies, is that a thing?

    I can vent about my mothers rampant whore-ness to internet strangers, yet walk around reletively unscarred.

    Oh, and I can drink a lot. I'm sure that's pretty rare around here.

    I dunno, he may be on to something here.

    [​IMG]

    Focus: I have the innate ability to repel intelligent women, with two exceptions: They're much older than me or they're gay. If either of those to categories apply, I'm golden, otherwise it's like oil and vinegar.

    If he were a character in a fictional story, yes. Rocky let himself be a heavy bag for eleven rounds before knocking the bad guy out, and even HE was eventually brain damaged. In real life when you stand there and take punches with your hands down, you get knocked the fuck out or killed. Human beings in real life don't "stand there and take punches" like a pissed-off action hero. If he "got into a lot of fights" with that strategy, he would be drooling every time he smiles for the rest of his life. I call SERIOUS bullshit.

    Or the people punching him were limp wristed girly men, a theory supported by the fact that he said he had multiple people hitting a guy who wasn't even defending himself.

    Or, a teenager, which last time I checked are around the same size, strength and speed as healthy adults.

    It doesn't matter how OLD you are. Getting the shit kicked out of you is getting the shit kicked out of you. I got jumped in high school and didn't walk right for 6 weeks. Every time I sneezed, air would come out of my eyes because of how hard I was kicked in the face.

    Maybe you think that 'cause you're still young, but actually, high school kids are scrawny and weak compared to healthy adults.

    Probably, my experiences were more a result of teenagers and pre-teens believing what they see in movies, that is, that if you hit someone they're supposed to fall and writhe in pain. When they don't, it can be surprising. Like I said, they'd give up within a couple punches so I was never beaten to shit, as you suggest.

    FOCUS: I don't bruise. Well, on rare occasions I'll feel the repercussions of a bruise, but it doesn't show. I never used to understand why we used the phrase "black and blue" because I didn't think anyone ever actually turned black or blue from a bruise.

    Also, I can de-rail threads, apparently. Sorry TiB.

    (cough)FOCUS(cough) : I've mentioned this before, but since it's relevant again: Do you remember, before puberty, if you sat in a quiet room you could hear a high pitched tone? It's not tinnitus, because you either can't hear it or can ignore it when there are other sounds present. What it is is the Brownian motion, from the molecules in the air around you. Your inner ear bone hardens at puberty, causing you to lose the highest pitched range of your hearing, and you (probably) haven't heard this sound since. I'm 36, and I still hear it. I can hear other high-pitched sounds, in the 17-20 KHz range, such as mosquito ringtones.

    Unlike the other times I've posted about this, I'll include my (non-academic) source. It's the part after the break in the text. I read this book when I was 15, and this part was an eye (ear?) opener. I probably would have gone nuts in adulthood, wondering what that damn tone is, if I hadn't read this.

    I've heard the same thing all my life. Last hearing test I had I got 0s and -5s on most of the ranges which is pretty good.
