      I can say the alphabet backwards in under 3 seconds, faster than I can say it forward. And I'm very jealous of your Waldo talents...I don't think I could find him if he came up and introduced himself!

      It's impossible for me to buy a bottle of bad wine. I just get a feeling from the bottle and I always pick a good one, even if I don't know anything about it.

      I once found two bottles of Lafitte Rothschild in a gas station for $20 each smile

      That's true, but it wont be considered useless the day I call you... my phone a friend... when Merideth Vierra asks me who wrote the song Beth sung by Kiss circa 1980.

        1976, not 1980.

        ...and for the record, it would be Peter Criss and Stan Penridge.

          Oh... I was 11 in 1980. Three boys stood outside my window and sang me that song. It was the first time I heard it. The more times I recount that story, the more I realize what a good memory it is. lol

    I know have the names of the states memorized, in alphabetical order.  If we ever add another state, there goes my one talent . . .

    (BTW - it's because of a song I learned years ago - so I can't even take credit for it . . .)

      Here's a good way to learn the countries if you have nothing else to do.

    Weird as this is going to sound - catching.

    Don't know why or how, but i'm really good at catching things (that are thrown). I can use either hand, and don't even have to be looking at the object to be able to catch it.

    As i don't play cricket i have yet to find a practical use for this skill.

        Lol. I spent the evening with a gang of middle-aged women, all of whom were mate-less apart from my wife.

        They presented in varying states of wickedness (apart from said wife, who is of a rather conservative nature) but none of them could be so vile as to hang a person for any reason I could think of.

        What does this tell you?

        Some would say double jointed, and besides, my mother never stopped preaching about the dangers of hitchhiking. Now I just have to work out how my perfectly horizontal thumbs might earn a living, save humanity or might otherwise alert the rest of us to an alternative way of living.
