I can triple tongue, but not double tongue, and most people (who know what that means) find that weird.
I have many (>12) small spots (small freckle sized) on my chest, shoulders, and upper arms which are bright red (approx. 0xFF0000).
I can take either of my thumbs, and lie them flat (tight enough to hold water) against the inside part of my wrist (the part that you would slash) without pain. This requires the use of the other hand, but I have met no one who can get more than the tip to touch.
From my right hip all the way down through my right foot has a very high tolerance of pain. I once was on my bike, made a turn to quick, and fell onto my right knee, and didn't notice that I was injured until I got home and my mom yelled at me for bleeding on the carpet. I had actually skinned it so that you could see the bone, and hadn't noticed it at all.
And to digress back to a very old part of this thread: When I was 15 years old, I got a bad pair of glasses where the technician read the prescription wrong/the optometrist wrote illegibly, and gave me a +0.75 instead of a +6.75 (at least I believe those were the numbers (for reference I am near-sighted)) for my right lens. Basically what that means is that I couldn't read anything beyond about 6-8 feet in front of me with my right eye, even with "correction". I went all the way through driver's ed. without noticing the bad glasses (my brain just ignored the right eye). I didn't notice the problem until I went in for the eye exam for my driver's license, and failed it. To this day I check both lenses one at a time each time I get a new pair of glasses. The sales-room people generally give me weird looks, but I am used to that by now.
I was born pigeon-toed. For those who don't know what that means, it means at least that when at rest, the toes point to each other. In my case, it mean that my feet pointed to each other to the following extent: Look straight down at your feet, and assume that you are standing with your heels on the center of analog clocks. My right foot pointed as the hour hand would at 9:15, and my left foot pointed as the hour hand would at 2:45. Basically this means my feet were, at one time, basically pointing directly at one another. When I was about 6 months old, I was put into two leg casts to straighten my legs out, and was in them for about 18 months, or until I was about 2 years old. Because my legs and feet were still recovering from their reconfiguration, I couldn't walk as normal people do until I was in about the 3rd grade (about 8 years old). It took me constantly concentrating on walking like normal people for another 3 years until I could do it without thinking about it.
I have had a broken bone, and have thus never been in a cast since the above case.
In regards to high pitched whines from CRTs and TVs:
#1 You won't have to deal with that for too much longer, since tube televisions/monitors are becoming less and less popular.
#2 Be glad that you can hear that while you can. The high end of hearing deteriorates rapidly as you get older.
#3 Be glad that you can hear that while you can. Since I was in marching bands for about 10 years of my life, and I was never informed about the possibility of hearing loss due to it, I am well on my way to losing my hearing.
