Default Unusual Talents


As the name implies, I want to hear about your unusual talents, or something you think is unusual that you can do. perhaps you have an uncanny ability to write things backwards, or maybe even the ability to squirt milk from your tear ducts (yes, that is a thing).

In odd talents I can solve a rubix cube. Those little squares that cause so many frustration and anger. I looked it up on the internet one day, as I was bored and happened to find one. My record time is nowhere near the world record of 4.73 seconds.

Not mine -- but I've done them for other people.

Haha, that's great.

Won't let Little Man see it before I've bought a replacement mouse - no doubt he'll click on it to oblivion.

I've got Flea to thank for the introduction of 'Crazy Frog' into our lives - almost driven me bonkers and blown up the computer.

I can use almost any tool - ie hammer, drill/driver, saws, wrenches with either hand in a near ambidextrous abandon. Something my dad taught me
