Amusing Monday: Human super powers and other oddball things

Humans have at least five super powers that few people know about, according to Mind Warehouse, a video producer with nearly 2 million subscribers on YouTube.

The one so-called “superpower” that intrigued me the most was the ability to distinguish warm water from cold water by sound alone. The super-powers video, found first on this page, challenges viewers to close their eyes and listen as someone pours two glasses of water — one hot and one cold.

According to the video segment, which begins at 2:34, between 80 and 90 percent of people who listen to the video can tell whether it is hot or cold water being poured into the glasses. It has something to do with bubbles, according to the video.

The other super powers mentioned in the video are super vision, the power of healing, a double identity based on DNA, and a force field surrounding every body. You can listen to the description of all these super powers, but to me the only surprising power is the one about the temperature of water.

Mind Warehouse specializes in videos about odd and unexpected things — including a video called “Five gadgets that will give you real super powers.” They include a wrist-worn device that shoots fireballs, an exoskeleton that allows super-human strength and a vacuum device that lets people climb up walls. For details, watch the second video player on this page.
