What are you really good at?

  1. Jul 15, 2006 #1
    Everyone is good at something. I'm not talking about just better than your friends, I mean you are extremely good at something. This thread is kinda made in light of peng's thread. So, yes, this is the time to brag!

    Me: I am surprisingly good at shooting handguns. I live about 15 minutes away from the largest outdoor public shooting range in the US. I've taken several self defense courses which have small competitions at the end. I have always killed the other people (by killed, I mean beat then in the shoot off...). I am really good at both shooting really fast from a holster and shooting slowly and precisely. At the shooting range, the only person better than me is my dad (I guess we have good genes:tongue: ).

    EDIT: By the way, I'm having a great time taking classes at UA right now :)

    EDIT2: I'm really glad that I took Calculus II here and not at my high school. It was insanely hard here and extremely worth it.

    Honestly I can't think of anything that I am really good at. I have a lot of things that I enjoy doing, but nothing that I am extremely good at.

    Really good? I used to be good at riding bikes (doing stunts, that is). I used to be really good at making maps for Call of Duty, and also pretty good at the game itself. I am pretty good at minesweeper, sudoku, and kakuro, and I am decently good at math. I am currently trying to become good at chess.

    People have said that I had potential to be good at chess but I am not serious enough about it to see if they're right...As for what I am good at I am strong at drawing...not in a creative sense more in a meticulously accurate sense...also a dab hand at cooking ASDA's pepperoni pizzas (I like them) :smile:

    I am good at refracting people with aphasia. I used to be good at the Rubik's cube. It makes my thumbs hurt too much now :mad:

    Hmmm I have decided that I an awesome at having bad luck. A couple days ago my bicycle got stolen right off of the deck on my apartment. I finally am able to get a new one yesterday and what happens? I bring it home make sure everything is good with it, satisfied that it's all checked out I go to bed and anticipate being able to go for a ride the following evening. I go to take it for a ride and the front tire is completely flat. So I try to pump it up, I pump until I am about blue in the face and the damn thing is still flat! Now I guess I have to buy a new tube. Just as I am about to take the front tire off, I get my finger caught in the spinning tire. I was about to throw the stupid bike out the window but then realized that as I live on the ground floor that wouldnt be particularily effective. Oh and when I was pumping the tire I set the little black piece that screws over the part you pump the air into aside and the stupid cat decided to play with it and now I can't find it.

    I'm the worlds best cuddler! I can also disarm an officer of the law with a mere pout of my lips.
