    We all know how good people are at maths and science but what other skills do people have on here?

    Mine are:

    Map reading - Apart from getting people stuck down country lanes I am very good at it,

    Time management - I never find in my work late and I am always on time for lectures/work etc.

    Bus routes - I know almost every bus route in South Manchester and thats a hell of a lot of routes. I am also very good at finding my way round strange places.

    Electronics - I've always been good at messing about with electical stuff such as mains, computers, HIFI etc

    Consumerism - I consider myself a very good consumer and its virtualy impossible for a sales person to give me the hard sell if they do they get no sale.

    Hiding somthing I cannot do which is a very basic thing.

    Consuming alcohol in a distinguished and attentive manner (the serious face as i sip my whisky/vodka/brandy straight is not - not I say - an attempt to hide the grimace i'm making)

    Sense of direction - lead me to a place, i can make my own way home usually.

    Cookery - i make the best pancakes this side of the great pond (apart from the Hampstead creperie... mmmm...) and some decent hamburgers too

    electronics/computers - nothing fancy, but i can generally set things up and make them work

    translating dead languages from and into English - essential to my everyday wellbeing, and vital in the workplace

    Not becuase any old bimbo can do that, as otherwise you could just say that attractive people have a skill. I am talking about practical skills and those suitable for a family audience, this thread was made before the water shed
