Just for fun, to lighten the mood...
What are are some of your talents-big or small?

I have a near-photographic memory...
I can name that tune in one note...
I can fly a Cessna...
I can wiggle my ears...
I can roll a kayak...
I can use chopsticks...
I like to speak in front of large groups...
I like to tell stories to anyone who will listen.


Will

I like your idea better. smile Loved everything so far BTW

I can wiggle my ears too (What is with that - I thought I was special?) (I can't roll my tongue or click my fingers)
I have a near-photographic memory too
I am a champion Flower Arranger (Long Story)
I am a natural born leader
I am a Puppeteer - Muppet style - I used to also perform as a clown (Leebee the clown)
I love performing in front of large crowds.

Phonographic (not photographic) memory - near perfect regurgitative recall of any speech I pay attention to, TV, songs, movies, you name it.

Small-time voice actor too... I'm the voicemail system for a few companies, and am also some robots in a science museum.

Oh, and I got charged by an elephant.

Impressive...never met an elephant that didn't like me...The voice over stuff is cool. A friend of mine does some of that.

I'm pretty good with aural memory and a great mimic.

I also got drunk with Kurt Vonnegut...not a skill, but it impressed me.

this is fun - seeing a different side of each other!

i am a vast repository of random and off-the-wall information that most people think is totally useless - but is great for Trivial Pursuit and other nerdy games.

i have a great memory and have learned many funny/melodramatic poems and used to perform monologues, including an hour-long one-man show - all memorized.

i have a photographic memory for colors - very helpful when trying to match clothes or home decorating items in stores to things that i don't have with me at the time.

i can do character makeup, including building beards and making prosthetic noses, scars, etc.

when i go to an art gallery i usually know more about the major pieces than the guides do.

i pick up accents very easily and can convince other people that i am from someplace else when i imitate the foreign accents.

I am good at figuring out how to pronounce names or whatever. If I can't figure out, I'll remember it if I hear it once.

I play bass and sing.

I used to interpret for the deaf, and still sign on occasion.

I will drive 4,000 miles around the country before flying.

I can imitate a few voices.

Cool thread, here are mine.

I am an ASL interpreter (In church)

I am told that I am a phenomenal public speaker. (not sure if I agree)

I hold more useless information in my brain the most people I know.

I can speak English fairly well.

I can decorate the s*** out of a cake. Cake boss style.

I can curse you out in 6 different languages.

I can tell you exactly where I was and what year it was when I heard a song for the first time.

and I can count to potato.

Good list Jay.

Me too. I even can recall other events based on the "soundtrack" of the time. This goes for mundane things as well as momentous ones...

I can impersonate almost anyone , I can change my voice to sound like others and even imitate songs to sound just like them

I also escape into music , it is one of the purest forms of expression . Man i love music

I love to help people
I love to inspire people
I love giving advice and actually like constructive criticism because it allows me to grow when excepted and put into practice

I am a writer , I like to just put it out there this can be good and bad lol

I am really good at video games and still like to bring out the kid in me

I also like to be silly and make people laugh
I am very intuitive and can come back on almost any joke

My brain is always in think mode

what could i have done better?
how could i have handled this better ?
what did so and so say today that was useful as fare as wisdom and insight ?

I love knowledge and wisdom most people do not realize how much wisdom people spew out of their mouth without even realizing it

I believe every moment is a teachable moment in some form or fashion

I am a good problem solver

I play a horn.



I was in the all-state (Colorado) orchestra all 3 years of high school. I played 1st position the 2nd and 3rd years. I also played in all-state concert band. I went on to play the 1st chair position in the University concert band. I played horn in Mahler's 4th Symphony conducted by Antonia Brico:

When I was 18, I won by competition a position in playing in a professional concert band in Denver.

Here are solo pieces I have played publicly recently:

I have an earned doctorate and master's degree in the biological sciences.

I love to make puns and jokes on words. I have an inner urge to make funny slogans in public signs.
