Just admit it, you have a weird flex that you like to bust out once in a while.
Maybe you bring it up at a work meeting or when you’re out with friends or even in a job interview…but you’re secretly proud of it!
And these AskReddit users have some weird flexes, as well.
Check out what they had to say!
1. Weirdly good.
“My body is weirdly good at telling which sounds to be concerned about when I’m asleep, to the point where I can generally sleep through most things, that wouldn’t otherwise affect me.
Roadworks in the street right outside my window? No problem. Noisy neighbours deciding to do late night DiY? Easy. Street racers? Didn’t even realise they were there.
But the lock on the front door being fiddled with, despite the sound having to travel down the hall and through a closed bedroom door? I’m wide awake. Footsteps in the hall way? It’s probably just the s.o. but wake up just in case. Someone put a hand on a door handle somewhere in thr flat? It’s not the bedroom door handle, But what if it is though? Better wake up.
The problem I have is actually getting to sleep in the first place.”
2. Good for you!
“At 25, my homemade red pasta sauce that I’d been tinkering with for years tied in a contest with a 75 year old Italian homemaker’s.
The sauce has gotten much better.
Okay you sauce jockies, here you go.
Onions and mushrooms, cook in a little oil. Add as much minced garlic as you think would make me happy, then double it.
Add 2 28 oz cans crushed tomatoes, a small container of tomato paste, one container of cherry tomatoes (cut in half or they become scalding tomato juice grenades), 1TBSP dried oregano, 1 TBSP dried basil, 1 TBSP dried Italian seasoning, 1 TSP black pepper, 1 dollop of chili garlic paste, a small pile of salt.
The closest thing to a secret ingredient is a tablespoon of whole fennel seed utterly turned to dust in a grinder of some kind.
Stir up and simmer for an hour, stirring regularly uncovered.
That sauce is actually vegan (until I dump in on my super not vegan meatballs) but for “competition grade” batches I use fancy imported crushed tomatoes, nicer tomato paste. If there’s no dietary restrictions I might add some anchovy paste too.
Go forth, and make my fake Italian ancestors proud.”
“I’ve been the most northern person in the world (on land).
I visited Alert, Nunavut and at one point a group of us went down to the end of the airstrip.
I stepped back to take a group photo with the base in the background and I realized that apart form people under the ice in submarines or flying on a plane, everyone else in the world was south of me. It was a weird sort of realization.
We then all took turns being the most northern person in the world.”
“When I was in 5th grade I won a national academic achievement award given out by the President.
It was George W. Bush at that time.”
“I’m the last person in the country to earn the Boy Scout beekeeping merit badge before it was discontinued.”
6. Perfect score.
“I got a perfect score on the ACT.
Where am I years later?
Cashiering at Lowe’s.”
7. Quite a trip!
“I hitchhiked from the Netherlands to Greece in 5 days.
It was epic!”
8. How’d you pull that off?
“I am not ticklish anywhere.
I used to be.
I trained myself to not have a tickle reflex.”
“My uncle has always taught English to foreign adult students.
His most famous pupil was none other than VLADIMIR PUTIN.”
10. Endless research.
“My ADD gives me the ability to research something endlessly.
I don’t get to choose the topic, but once in a while a problem will come up at work and I’m the only one who knows why it happened and how to fix it.”
11. That’s random.
“Kevin Rudd, former prime minister of Australia follows me on Twitter.
I’m an American who rarely tweets.”
12. Pulling out the big guns.
“I high fived Taylor Swift when I was 12.
I’m currently 24 and I usually joke that I still haven’t washed the hand yet.
Honestly think it got me quite a few matches on bumble with that fact.”
Now it’s your turn!
