    Well, I have like an hour on Monday to do, ansolutely nothing, so I sit there and draw, maybe go buy a cheeseburger, but people always come up to me and say "I wish I could draw" and I thought... This is quite a useless talent, but I like it. If I couldn't draw, I don't know what I'd do.

    There's some useless yet utterly amazing talents out there that I'd like to have, just for the sheer reason for it looking amazing.

    Yeah, well, obviously, I'd want to be able to know how to dance, as if I don't fail socially enough, my arms and legs don't gel well together, at all. I can't even bend over and touch my toes without bending my knees, and even then it's still an effort, and because of that I look pretty awkward.

    But, wow, being able to dance would make everything so much easier in life! Suppose singing would be okay as well, but I don't really ever have to sing, only in music class, and I dropped that about four years ago.

    Another thing, contortion, and possibly majoretting. xD

    Everyone else?

    I guess I wish I could draw, something I always have been bad at.
    I can draw normal things, enough to get me by in school or whatever but I can't do anything that would really impress people or myself.

    I wouldn't mind learning how to dance either, I have about 4 or 5 moves down.
    The "Stand Still head bob" move, the "Wave your arms around" move, the "Shimmy", and the "Stand in the corner and not dance" move. Being a good dancer can get you some nice stuff.

    This seems basic, but I would like to have the ability to learn another language. Some people can, (Such as my friend in Canada, she knows French, English, Spanish, German) but I'm just one of those who is incapable of such a feat.

    Have you tried? I bet you could, especially if it was a language you were really interested in (vs. something forced on you in school).

    Rosetta Stone?

    I'd love to excel at maths and science!
    Life would be so much easier. Seriously. My talents are all so impractical.

    My biggest strength in this world is instrumental music. How many job openings do you see for flutists? :lol:

    I wish I was able to play guitar, I think I might try to learn some day...
    But as far as I know I have no musical talent.

    Someone is no longer practicing isolationism... :rolleyes:

    It'd be pretty cool if I was better at playing instruments. I'm taking a music class this year, so hopefully that will change. Aside from that, my shot could use a bit of work, but I think I'm pretty content atm.

    I like to think that any ability can be learned with enough perserverance.
