Double-jointed as contortionist

Is anyone naturally "double-jointed" who can do body positions like a contortionist?

I too am a bendy thumb person. I can also bend my elbows and knees backwards... looks hideous but comes in handy for freaking people out at parties

I was going to say "but I thought everyone can bend their thumb back", then I read the rest of the posts and .......well.......it looks like everyone can. So original thumb bendy poster. You're not so special after all!

I can fold my fingers over each other.
And I can move my right index finger up and down against the joint.
This freaked out a lot of people...

I can also do a brilliant impersonation of the 'Chatterer' from Hellraiser.

The tips of my little fingers bend right back, so when I bend them forward and bend the tips right back, people cry. This pleases me.


My little brother can put his head on his feet from a standing position. This is freakier when you see it done.

My sister could bend all her toes right back. This was disgusting and she got thumped a lot for doing it.

The chatterer?? Coooool. If anyone out there can impersonate Pinhead, though....... mmmm, Pinhead.......
