I'm a 5′4″ (162 cm) guy with size 18 US / 17 UK / 55 EU feet. My feet are stupidly big for my height and it's very noticeable. It's due to a genetic anomaly - I was born with oversized feet and hands and they just kept growing bigger. Strangers comment on it all the time. And forget about the reaction of assistants at shoe shops or bowling alley clerks!

Just wondering if anyone else has a bodily quirk that makes.them.a bit of an oddball like me? 7c66a1a82bd1a7c2c79e0cf64d90ec52-01~4.jpeg

I have abnormally strong calves, I suspect due to how I've always walked (push off ball of foot vs however everyone else does it) and carrying a little extra weight my whole life. Every machine I've ever used since I was in 9th grade I've been able to use the entire stack of weights with little issue. 400lb, 800lb, 1,000, doesn't matter. I've always been able to go from zero prior workouts, out of shape, no stretching, and do a few rounds of 20 without every feeling tired.

Hahaha I have one of course. Very easy Halloween costume for me!
was actually going to post "I bet your Halloweens must be boring by now, because they are all the same!"

But I didn't know how that would land, so I decided to go, lighter? :D

Went to HS with a guy that had size 18 feet, but he was 6'5" and his feet still looked huge. We called him skies...

I worked in a bowling alley in HS, and he came with his dad to bowl. His dad wore size 19. Needless to say we didn't have rental shoes for either of them, we had 1 pair of 17's.

I was going to make a post about my own freaky bits but it's NSFW.
Let's just say I thankfully haven't been stalked in a few years and that it is shaped normally, but the size is just plain wrong, which has gotten me into trouble with other people's relationships and causes me no end of discomfort.

I have something that's kind of odd. I can touch my elbow to my shoulder blade on the other side of my back. I can scratch any part of my back without help. As I get older though it is just easier to make the wife do it -)

How much time ya got there bud?

1. I can wiggle my ears and eyebrows and control them individually. It feels sort of strange perking my ears up when I know it's not going to make much of a difference.

2. A 15-20 degree bow below the knee. Didn't get enough calcium as a toddler.

3. Fallen arches? Not sure what to call them. The "wear pattern" on my foot soles seem to indicate I have an arch, but it's sort of springy. So if I go to pivot on a bare floor, my feet will make a quiet sucking sound, which would seem to indicate somewhat floppy arches.
