We are all full of surprises.

We have talents we hide.

Useless, but once and every once in a while... life-affirming.

Redditor Middle_Ad_2619 wanted everyone to share about the things they do that make no difference in the world. They asked:

"What is a useless skill that you have?"

Redditor u/elliotsilvestri6 wanted everyone to discuss some of the things we were told by grown ups and educators about what we for sure needed to learn for the future, but as it turned out, we all knew better by asking.... What is the most useless skill you learned in high school?
