You Know ...

I can tap my index finger 332 times in a minute, my middle finger 278, my ring finger 248, and my little finger 196 times.

I can tap my left foot, on average out of 6 attempts, 136 times before starting to get the feeling of a cramp. And my right foot can last 12 taps longer, 6 out of 8 times.

I can turn my head slightly less than 90 degrees to my right, and my left; but I can tilt my head upwards to about 93 degrees, before falling on my back.

I can roll my eyeballs up and down faster than left and right. And it's more difficult to roll them in circular motion. And to roll them in a perfect oval line along the edge of my eyes is a totally different matter. And I can cross my eyes for as long as 29 seconds before I would get worried that it might be irreversible.

I can exhale non-stop longer than I can inhale, by more than 2 seconds, which is 8 seconds, according to the stopwatch in my mobile phone, the clock on the wall, and the watches of my two kids, on separate count. And I can hold my breath for as long as 1 minute and 3 seconds, before my face starts turning blue. And I bet even if my face turns purple, nobody around will notice.

I think I can get up and do a MC Hammer's "Can't Touch This", and not one person would turn their head ...



Note:

For the sake of the sanity of my restless mind, the next time the wife wants to buy Chinese New Year clothes for the kids and asks me to come back and fetch them at the boutique, which is located 5 minutes from our home, when she calls, BANISH the wisdom used when she thinks we're lost and I know we're only on a short-cut and reject her advice to ask for direction, and DO NOT doubt her senses for such complicated task and volunteer to wait, thinking this deceivingly short and simple assignment will add to my ammunition during a you-never-go-shopping-with-me argument, and DO NOT, in a sky-might-fall or sun-might-burst kind of way, valiantly turn down the offer.

I was watching Hitch (the movie with Will Smith) today and there was a scene where one of the character was doing the You Can't Touch This dance. I can just imagine if someone else did it...
