Wow, I honestly couldn't wrap my brain around what your body was doing for a minute. It's safe to say that not many people can do this, or will ever be able to do this, but we can dream!

At my age, none of those positions will ever happen again. But then I couldn't do any of them when I was young either.

Ohhh you must be elastic, if I try this I will break in two. Very impressive indeed!
