Re: What is your secret talent/talents.....

I don't think I've hidden any from anyone. Y'all already know too much about what I can and cannot do!

Maybe... I can make mozzarella cheese? Curl my tongue. Hips are flexible - I can sit 'indian' style and bend over and touch my nose to the floor in front of me. Yet legs out straight I can't touch my nose to my knees because I need to stretch my hamstrings.

I can do impressions, usually of my animals! I also make kick ass waffles which are really unheard of here in the UK. And I write poetry! Top that peeps! LOL

Re: What is your secret talent/talents.....

I am a very good impressionist and have even had some of mine graded and looked at by professional impressionists via Youtube e-mails, but it's something I have always liked to do just for fun at parties or around the office making co-workers laugh. And those who keep asking me to do them are some of the same people who aren't afraid to tell me I suck at something, so I know that they are good enough to entertain friends and family. My specialties are Al Pacino, Christopher Walken, Tracy Morgan(from 30 Rock), Pee Wee Herman, and the Godfather.

Re: What is your secret talent/talents.....

I once won a $50 bar bet by naming every single country in Africa. Even the little ones like Sao Tome and the Seychelles. I could still do it, but I can't remember a phone number even if my life depended on it.

You are sooooo bad.....

Speaking of fixing stuff....I was always the invent it guy.....Did it for 30 years.....

We once had a sheltered workshop pre assemble a set screw into a part for us.......

When their workshop burned down, we were stuck hiring a bunch of temps to do it......We needed 20,000 a day....

I made a gizmo with a little air powered motor mounted under the table with the little hex type driver sticking up through a little nest to hold the part ...you put a screw in the bit, placed the back of the part in the nest and drop it...It fell foreward landed on the turning screw, and as the screw went into the threads, it screwed its self off the driver to the correct depth....It was actually so much fun to operate it was almost addictive.......

I built 2 of them, and when we put operators on them they said "what is the hourley rate" I had no idea, and just threw a number...600 per hour.....I came back an hour and the counter said 600 parts......

600 x 7 is 4200 an hour three shifts makes 12600 x 2 was more than enough to keep the assembly line running......

Don't know where the idea came from, never saw anything like it before or since....Just some of the stuff thats done every day so people can build cars.....

Re: What is your secret talent/talents.....

I'm thinking I'll tile my counters. I'm tired of the all white blah counter. After having the car repainted and my yard project (had a bunch of concrete patio removed; need to get a load of edging rocks, dirt, mulch and plants) the next will be the kitchen counter. I think I can, I think I can!

Re: What is your secret talent/talents.....

Sadly, one I can't claim to have had to work to obtain.
Giving birth in record time with no anesthetic or repair stitches to 8.5 lb babies who are full term and then some (5 days, 3 weeks, 10 days overdue, respectively.)

Non-pregnant, I am 5'2" and 100 pounds.

Clearly if we were living in primitive times, I could drop, birth, grab the baby and run. Leaving behind placenta to the chasing lions. lol.

The third child required the maneuver of my GP due to shoulder distortion. I pushed so hard I broke her collarbone, but we got her out on the first try.

Yes, I believe in Kegels...before and after :-)

I'm done having babies but have discovered a latent talent for dancing.

Re: What is your secret talent/talents.....

Wow. I pushed for 25 hours and required the help of forceps AND a vacuum at the same time. Only to open my eyes and see about 8 medical students viewing the whole thing - I never heard them enter. Maybe my talent is being super tight?

Apparently I have good ligament tissue, stretchy.
I can sit with the soles of my feet together and put my knees on the ground. Nice to groove people out in yoga with.

oh good God, let me see if I can paint this pic from a horny sex-starved male's perspective:

1) you admit to prancing around in your underwear and a t-shirt re-enacting the scene from Risky Business

2) you admit you can bend over and touch your tongue on the floor

3) you admit you have 'very flexible hips'

4) you admit you're an exhibitionist and have allowed many people to view your hoo-haw

5) you admit that said 'hoo-haw' is very tight.

all I can say 'in my best Seinfeld voice' is that "I'm Out"

Not a handy man at all unless it's the basic stuff like changing a light bulb or fixing a squeaky door(WD-40), but as far as electronics and the computer geek stuff I am a whiz at figuring all of that out.
