Re: hyperflexibility

This happened a while ago but I don’t think I posted about it.

I saw a post on Tumblr that was a collection of gifs of people doing a dance move called a “death drop”. I don’t think it was this specific article, but it was something similar. You can see that there’s a specific technique to it– they use one leg to let themselves down slowly, so it’s not a completely uncontrolled fall.

My first thought: “OH NO that looks AWFUL. If I did that my knee would dislocate.”

And Sparkly seemed surprised by that, so I’ve been sort of making a mental list of “things I don’t/wouldn’t do because joints,” and wondering if it’s normal to be able to make such a list?
