Last week at the beach, I saw two young girls do multiple cartwheels in a row, just one after another in succession like it was nothing.<br><br>
No matter how much I've tried, I've never been able to do a single cartwheel...ever. I either end up on my rear-end or flat face on the ground.

This struck me as such a teasing statement <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:"> I saw you in my mind's eye with thumbs in ears, wagging fingers saying that you could do these things others say they can't. Heh.

I can do cartwheels and I know how to ride a bike and drive a car, but I can't whistle at all.</div>

I don't have my PhD yet.

I can do that. How have you managed to go through life without that skill?<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"><br><br>
I can't blow a bubble with bubble gum.<br><br>
I do know how to juggle, well I used to be able to do it.

Can totally do multiple cartwheels in a row...well, maybe not anymore, but I was able to do them well into my forties. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br>
I cannot whistle, with or without fingers.<br><br>
I thought I couldn't snap my fingers but I get some sound using my left hand. Nothing happens when I try to snap them with my right.

I can't roll my "R"s, the sound known as an alveolar trill in languages like Spanish, despite being a complete foreign language fanatic.

I can't trill my "r"s very well either. My accent is pretty bad. I'm actually sort of embarrassed about it because my dad's Hispanic and thus so is half my family. I should be able to speak Spanish, but I can't. I know a fair amount of Spanish. I took it in High School, but I'm nowhere near fluent.

I cannot do a cartwheel, ride a bike, drive a car or whistle. I fail at life. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/bigcry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":cry:">

I have yet to make it into All-State honors band. I have tried the last two years, but not been serious enough about practicing the audition music. This year, I plan on making it.<br><br>
First chair in concert band, the girl in front of me is insanely good and a grade higher... I hope I beat her this year.<br><br>
And diving. I cannot, no mater how hard I try, dive into a body of water. It's always a belly flop.

I didn't get into med school. I had the grades but it was just luck of the draw - 7 people apply for every 1 place in this country.

Okay, this is really embarrassing, and I wouldn't be surprised if you guys laughed at me for it, I don't usually tell people this but,<br>
I can't tie my shoes, I always stuff the laces inside of the shoes.<br>
When my parents tried to teach me when I was 5, I was spinning the shoes around by the laces.<br>
Thus, I never learned.

^^ second this. I bet there's a video on youtube to help, that's how I learned how to change the bag on my vacume cleaner the other day <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

Well I can blow bubbles, even with chewing gum! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"><br><br>
Oh I can't click, it makes me feel really stupid, but I just can't do it.<br><br>
This is funny thinking of all the things I can't do. I really sucked at learning to drive, I had over a years worth of lessons and I still was no where near taking a test. Honestly I was still accidentally stearing into walls, nearly crashing into my RE teacher on a roundabout, and unable to reverse around a corner. Then I went to uni and stopped lessons, but I plan to take more next summer, and REALLY try this time.<br><br>
I can't wiggle my ears on their own. I find it really weird that people can move parts of their body that I have NO control over. I can lift up one side of my nose on it's own, but not the other!

I can't do either of those either.<br><br>
I also can't do the splits.
