It's a known fact, that after having one too many drinks, our judgment and multiple abilities become severely impaired.

And as a result, we should probably avoid doing important work, calling exes or unrequited crushes, and, of course, driving.

But, have you ever surprised yourself, by realizing that you're actually good at something after having a few drinks.

That maybe one thing an excess of alcohol cured was your self-consciousness, and may have improved your confidence?

Redditor 1bottleofwineb was curious to hear what hidden talents the Reddit community unearthed after having one too many, leading them to ask:

"What are you strangely good at when drunk?"

"Oddly enough, most anything that relies on reaction speed."

"My best guess is that I second guess myself too much when I'm sober, so I wind up waiting too long."

"If I actively try to counteract that, I jump the gun."

"When alcohol gets involved, I just stop thinking about it and nail it."

"Literally the only time I've managed to beat several textbook examples of incredibly difficult video game bosses, ie. 'Hollow Knight's Absolute Radiance', 'Malenia in Elden Ring', was when I was riding that edge between tipsy and drunk.- orein123

"Running."

"I guess not so much anymore but in my early twenties, when I lived in San Diego, I'd get drunk and run for like 12 miles, sometimes by the beach."

"When I would wake up the next morning I'd be like.... how did I do that?"- helltothenoyo

Amazing the things we can do after a few too many glasses of wine.

Though, best to just enjoy it in the moment, rather than try to replicate it...


Some people truly think the world revolves around them, which is why it's so satisfying to see them get what they want.

Consider: When was the last time you saw someone in public freak out in a store and demand to speak to the manager? Did the manager acquiese? Or did they stand up for their employees?

We're used to hearing about employees getting the short end of the stick, of course. But the moments when things go the other way—and a terrible nuisance finds themselves unable to get what they want—is truly a sight to behold.

In short: Saying "no" or putting people in their place is the ultimate power move.

Considering how much money these films make, I understand that I am in the minority when I say that Marvel films have absolutely overstayed their welcome. What once seemed fairly innovative—the current generation of the MCU really took off when Iron Man proved to be a tremendous hit—now feels stale.

I accept it, though. These films are not for me and never have been. That's okay. But it'd be great if we could have more room for other great blockbuster films other than yet another superhero movie.

"What franchise has been milked to death?"

People Confess Which Things They Find Absolutely Cringeworthy

We've all displayed embarrassing behavior or actions at one point or another, and we can't seem to shake off the regretful moment.

It just replays in our minds like an endless boomerang.

We are equally embarrassed for those who may have done something spontaneously foolish and have no clue of the mortifying impact of their actions.

Sex. It's great, but there can be a lot of drama involved.

We're human, how could there not be?

One way to make it easy is to say the right name when you're in the heat of things.

Seriously, we know this sounds like a small thing, but it's monumentally important.

Make sure you know your date's name.

If you don't, take your date to Starbucks and have it written on their cup.

It might be REALLY important later in the evening.
