Top 15 things you can’t do at the same time, it’s science

Our brain may be a well-made thing on a lot of levels (well except yours, sorry) it still has its limits. We know today, for example, that he cannot accomplish two tasks at the same time if they require concentration. You can of course do two tasks if one of them is fully automated and doesn’t require cognitive resources (like peeing while reading), but there are a lot of other things you can’t do with it. our rotten brain. Or because our body also has its limits. So here are some interesting challenges that will keep you busy.

1. Swallow with your mouth open

Well, personally I can do it without any problem but it seems that everyone around me has a motor disability that prevents them from swallowing with their mouths open. I conclude that I am a superior being endowed with a rare power. Still, it is quite complicated to perform and the process of ingesting food requires a closed mouth, otherwise you can even have a risk of choking by swallowing crookedly.

2. Make a square with the left hand and a circle with the right hand

It also works in the opposite direction and with more complex figures like the portrait of the Mona Lisa in the right hand and a Mondrian in the left hand. It’s not for nothing that painters don’t paint two canvases at the same time. OH YEAH.

3. Trying to memorize a series of numbers while saying “blablablabla”

As evidenced by this video which offers you this funny experience. But if not, you can do it on your own, remember the following numbers: 8, 9, 5, 7, 1, 2, 4. How are you doing? Now remember this series of numbers by saying “blablabla” (or whatever you want eh, we don’t care if you say blablabla in the background): 5, 8, 1, 4, 9, 1, 2. AH THE WHOLE NOW IT’S HARDER, HIN?

4. Swallow and vomit

If you can swallow your vomit without any problem, you cannot however accomplish this double task since, logically, you cannot leave a place and return at the same time.

5. Read and squint

On the other hand, people with strabismus can read quite normally. I say this because I sincerely asked myself the question on the occasion of this top. Passion discovered.

6. Breathe and swim underwater

Unless you have a snorkel or gills.

7. Burp and fart

Let’s say it’s more of a moral issue.

8. Pee while having an erection

Impossible. We have to wait for it to drop. Hence the fact that boys sometimes have difficulty peeing in the morning when they wake up.

9. Knit while trampolining

Or else you have to have a hell of a taste for risk.

10. Slap his head with one hand and circle his belly with the other hand

But at the same time it’s not as if you really need to know how to do these two things at the same time to find a job at Pole Emploi.

11. Sneeze with your eyes open

Well I’m kidding you a bit because technically it’s still possible. It’s just very difficult.

13. Play the piano and sing

Except for the blind.

14. Sleep and redo the grout in your shower

According to a study, this dual activity would indeed be very complex to achieve for the human brain. But who knows… right now we would only use 10% of our brains, so maybe one day…

15. Count two by two and tie your shoes like Franklin

While the guy doesn’t even have shoes, no, but frankly we really don’t care about the world. In the meantime, I’ll leave you with this awkward credits.
