    Right now I am juggling three, count em, three bowling balls. It's a good thing I have this voice recognition program to type for me. Ooh ooh now it's four. Sorry no pictures I can't juggle and take photos at the same time.

    What awe inspiring feats of wonder can you perform?

    There was a guy named George Koltanowski, who is actually from the Bay Area and wrote the chess column for the SF Times for 52 years.

    In 1960, he set the world record at a whopping 56 boards blindfolded at the same time. Won every game. Still the world record I believe. The chess world has not seen someone like him in a long time.

    I can't go into details here, but I can do an amazing feat using a can of cheez whiz, about 200 large rubber grommets, an air compressor, a wheel-o, and 4 rat traps.

    I'm pretty good at being lazy. Does that count?!

    I can juggle a bowling ball, a running chainsaw, an apple and a puppy at the same time, eating the apple as I go,
    Well, I will be able to one day, I'm still practicing...I just gotta get some more puppies.

    Only if you write a book about it. But then you wouldn't be lazy. :confused:

    I gotta admit, you've outdone me. That is indeed an amazing feat.

    That is the paradox of laziness.

    Unlike Gene Simmons who had a chunk of cow tongue grafted on, I was born with my freakishly large tongue AND I can breath through my ears. :D:D:D

    I just wish I could find a good use for my deformities.

    I'd like to see you whistle the Andy Griffith theme song with your mouth closed. Would it be in stereo?
