Everyone has a few special secret talents.

The only reason we keep them quiet is because they don't make us money.

So we all have efficient party tricks.

It's just like having a brain full of useless information.

But you never know when that info may land you on Jeopardy.

So how useless is it all?

Our silly skills could get us on some reality show.

RedditorBilla_420wanted everyone to share about all the talents they possess that don't seem to get them any richer in life. They asked:

"What is the most useless skill you have??"

I have no hidden skill. I'm boring. But tell me yours.

SCORE!

"The random crap I can make using boxes and tape."'

LacingMaShoes

"A soul like my own, I fashioned a little device to hold my phone on a curtain holder so I could watch shows in bed easier."

NotCallum

"Do you have kids? This is far from useless. My kids love making things out of boxes. Boats, trains, planes, dens, spaceships."

One Hand?

"I can tie my shoe lace with one hand in under 5 seconds."

BobbyLeFourbe

"Teach me now 🤨."

Billa_420

"This isn't useless at all. I've been made late to meetings multiple times due to my inability to properly handle shoelaces of all things."

Abelysk

Blow

"I can blow a sound like and as loud as a whistle. Which would be great if I was a referee in sports or a gym teacher, but neither situation has ever come up."

ghettospread

"I can make a bird sound whistle using my mouth while it doesn't look like I'm whistling. Or it's just a high pitched whistle. It may sound like a R/that happened but I tricked a class I was in into thinking there was a bird in the room."

"I spent years practicing singing and metal screaming. I am not in a band. I do not sing in front of people. It's literally just so I can sing to my favourite songs."

I wanna tie my shoes one handed! That's awesome!

"I can move my eyebrows in time to any music and also do the worm with my eyebrows."

Good Night

"Sleeping for 16 hours."

milky_monkey

"Same lol. If I get hydrated just right, no drinking, earplugs in and just the right amount of physical exhaustion, I can clock in between 14-16 hours of sleep and wake up feeling like absolute pile of crap. It usually takes a litre of water straight and tar-black coffee to bring me to wakefulness."

Lucky

"Finding 4 leaf clovers. I feel like all of my life's luck was concentrated into this one cool but useless skill."

thinkrrr

"My cousin wins almost every contest she enters. But she can’t find a four-leaf clover whenever she looks for one. It’s such a weird inverse of your skill."

Songs4Soulsma

"Same!!!! All the old (now dead) people on the paternal side of my family would literally spend hours looking for them, I'd walk up and look down and pick one, "'s this what you're looking for?' even on my grandma's grave I found one, it was hilarious, it pissed her off the most that she could never find one."

Magical Powers

"No matter what line I stand in at the super market, the other line WILL move faster. If I switch lines, the old lady who is now in front of me will unquestionably need to count up a thousand dimes for payment, and the guy that used to stand behind me in the old line, will wink at me as he leaves."

Stacked

"Balancing things on top of each other- I don’t know why I started it, but I can stack just about anything that’s put in front of me. Does not help me in the slightest at my white collar office job lol."

BungeeBarrels

Ok. I can balance things. Didn't realize that was a skill... go me!
