Hidden/Secret Talent(s)

What are yours? Nothing x-rated, just honest to god, truly hidden talents that most people don't know about. Do you have one?

Go!

Go!
I have none. *sniff* That's right - zip, zilch, zero, nota one -- which I think makes me somewhat unique, in this regard.

Now, if only I could figure out a way to parlay this "non-talent" of mine into some kind of profitable venture. Unfortunately, so it seems, there are several in the entertainment business that have already stolen my idea, finding a way to market the, otherwise talentless and unmarketable, into profitable showbiz careers. Utterly remarkable.

Actually, I remember numbers. Lots of them. I can tell you the drug code, off hand, of roughly 300 medications. I also know the IP address and computer name of roughly 200 PC's. Again, mostly useless knowledge.

I'm usually an exceptional speller.
I can knit a MEAN scarf.
I'm an excellent cook and never use recipes. Just my noggin.
I'm a classically trained lyrical soprano (as high as you can go), and originally went to OSU on an Opera scholarship. I couldn't make it through music school theory/instrument, but I still have the voice. Been thinking about whipping it back out again in the near future.
Because of this, I can pronounce almost any dialect/language.
I can drive a 6 speed manual, talk on the phone, turn left AND chew gum at the same time.
I can color inside the lines really well.

I forgot about my ability to pick up swear words in multiple languages. I can pick up other words but it's just more "funner" to learn the bad words first.

I can also find spelling mistakes in newspapers, books etc without thinking about it. Should come in handy in college, eh?

I have several hidden talents, and, as usual, they are going to remain hidden.

Oh, another talent I have is being able to answer almost any math problem in my head. Unfortunately, my answers are almost always incorrect.

That's confusing. I can't even do math on paper, which is why I am doing Science "lite" instead of real Science.

Apparently, upon retrospect - I have a hidden talent for getting into relationships with massively dysfunctional women.

Anyone want to swap talents? Anyone?

Trade that for my baking ability? I don't think so. However, I will beat you about the head to prevent you from hooking up with ho-bags, if that helps.

Interesting, my most developed talent is repelling women in every way. Perhaps we are related.

Actually, I believe that's in our male DNA. It is some sort of self preservation mechanism.
