Whether its putting your leg behind your head or licking your own nose, humans are full ofweird little tricks that the majority of people can’t do. But alot of them can be explained with science.
This video by #Mind Warehouse shows a selection of 10 of these strange glitches of the body, then explains how they work and even how you canlearn how to do them.
