One out of every 10 adults can't do this
I recently heard this interesting little list on a local morning radio show, and I thought that I would share what I heard with you all good folks here on the Hub Pages. For whatever reason there are many adults out there who are unable and can't do the things that are listed below on this interesting list. They may have never learned to have mastered these simple tasks when they were a child. They may have forgotten how to do these things since childhood with age, or they may have simply gotten too old to physically accomplish and do some of these things. Whatever the reason may be one out of every ten adults can't successfully do these twelve things.
1 out of 10 adults can't do these things -
One out of ten adults can't whistle.
One out of ten adults can't ride a bike. What ever happened to the saying if you fall off of a bike then you get right back on and ride again.
One out of ten adults can't hold their breath for any length of time.
One out of ten adults can't snap their fingers on both hands.
One out of ten adults can't roll or curl their tongue into the shape of a taco shell.
One out of ten adults can't wink only one eye at a time. When they do try winking then both of their eyes end up winking at the same time. This has been verified by the winkee or the person who is being winked at.
One out of ten adults can't use a computer.
One out of ten adults can't roll their R's when saying certain words that require such action.
One out of ten adults don't have all of their teeth.
One out of ten adults can't run very far without having to stop and catch their breath.
One out of ten adults can't maneuver their way through the Internet.
One out of ten adults can't stand on their heads. I'd think that this particular number should be higher.
Before I go here's my two cents -
When in the world did they change the name of the soft drink Mr. Pibb to Pibb Xtra, and where was I when all of this happened? What's the difference? It still taste the same, and the price certainly didn't go down. It seems just like yesterday that this soft drink was still named Mr. Pibb. Was somebody by the name of Mr. Pibb insulted that a soda pop was being named after him, or did he feel that Coca-Cola should have paid him royaltys for the use of his precious name on their soft drink cans and labels. I decided to check some phone books for the name of Mr. Pibb, and guess what, I didn't find one single solitary person out there with the name of Mr. or Mrs. Pibb listed in those phone books. I guess this is just a lot about nothing, but I wanted to toss in my two cents on this matter. Have a good day :)
