Not true my biologically gifted friend. I was going to say I know several hundred fish names in Latin but for me that's not obsolete. Wait till you go and become a biologist, all that knowledge will become very useful.

RE: Obsolete and/or Useless Talents
I can sex parrots - most of the time. I swear some of them are cross gendered.

I can cook most anything and make it taste good, without ever looking at a recipe or watching the time. ( I do watch the food though Tongue )

I can understand and read some languages - English and German being the main ones, but also Dutch and Danish and Italian and Spanish and Latin. Most of them need to be refreshed - it's been eons since I used them. I used to be able to read and speak basic Arabic - I have forgotten it all, can't even read it anymore. I'd take a refresher course, but there is no point to it anymore.

I can whistle songs I heard once or twice 50 years ago, even though I have no idea what they are called or who sang them.

The cooking is still useful. The rest - not so much.

I can get 9 hours sleep and still be exhausted for the whole day.

No but in all seriousness now, it's a useless talent as I am neither a professional thief or locksmith but I can pick locks. It's not anywhere as quick or easy as you see in TV and movies.

Sounds like you have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. I have that and it sucks. I also have insomnia where I can go for days on just two or three hours of sleep a day. I hate it.

Yakherder! How fast is your Rubik's cube time? I can do it in less than two minutes. Not crazy impressive, but good enough for people who can't do it at all Big Grin
