    Well, i was watching Demetri Martins If i, and i saw him do a bunch of useless talents, and it got me thinking. What useless talents can you do that your proud of? I can currently roll a coin across my knuckles, and im learning 3 things currently, playing guitar (Since i dont plan on rocking out for real,) writing left handed (Im going to force my self for 2 monthes like he did) and juggle (I can juggle once, and then ill drop the fourth ball) and by juggle once i mean a complete round, aka one ball, two balls, three balls, and then restart.

    I'm 13 and can juggle: 1 hand 2 balls, 2 hands 3 balls. When juggling 3 balls, I can drop one, continue juggling two with one hand, and pick up the one I dropped using my foot.

    I can also beat box using my hands (the farting noise from the air passing through). [​IMG]

    I've got a very versatile voice and can do a ton of impressions, accents, and other noises (got a pretty decent impression of Mario at the moment). I can go lower than James Earl Jones (my real voice is very deep), or higher than Mickey Mouse. I can whistle through my teeth and regularly. Basically, anything related to noises with my mouth I can do.

    I am ambidextrous... which is guess is kinda useful, I write with my left hand and mouse with my right.

    I can make chainmaille.

    oh and I can do tricks with a zippo lighter.... that is pretty useless.

    Well my useless talents would be being able to put my thumb behind my knuckle and roll my tongue. I have many others, but I wouldn't deem them worthless [​IMG]

    Wouldn't YOU like to know?
    Tie a cherry stem with my mouth. I like to do that when there are a lot of girls around. They tend to look at each other and smile so as not to be obvious, but some girls flat out say "wow, I heard that means you're a good kisser!"

    Hmm, what else...I can bench press 165kg (365 lbs), do a spinning back kick, do the splits, do a handspring from a lying-down position into a standing position, use nunchaku, play the piano and taiko drums, do Japanese calligraphy (though I would consider the nunchaku, piano, taiko and calligraphy more as hobbies than as talents).

    Oh, I can also make 6 out of 10 half-court shots with a basketball. I consider that useless because I can only do it when I don't have people trying to block or steal the ball from me. Now if I could do that in the heat of a game, that would be a really useful talent.

    I was 113kg in this video 2 years ago, but I'm 105kg now. The middle (box) splits are really hard for me and I gave up trying to get 180 degrees years ago. Front splits I can do comfortably with my right leg in front, but with my left leg I have to do some jogging to or something to get the blood flowing and the muscles loosened.

    Hmmm, I should do a YouTube video of all of my useless talents [​IMG]
