We've all got one, or more...

I have an uncanny ability to grab the EXACT number of nuts/washers whatever I need from a pot. ie, today I needed 16 of something, several times... and 4 times out of 5, I got the exact number in one grab...

:shrug:...

I can also remember pi to 9 decimal places (3.141592654)... WTF for I have no idea, I just do.

Nine places...?  I don't care about pi anymore, but did a lot of mnemonics and brain-training in the 90's can remember thousands of random things in order or whatever!  Cool?  Maybe.  Useful?  Almost never.

I used to be able to do the rubiks cube...

I just got a new one given to me... and I can't even be fkt now! I worked out how to take them apart and assemble in order very early on!

Oh.. I can juggle 3 things... balls or clubs...

and I can ride a unicycle

but not at the same time...

The most amazing thing I've seen with my own eyes was a 14 year old ginger kid, who would RUN at a unicycle laying on the floor that someone else had fallen off.... and he'd kinda run OVER it, flick it up with his feet... and RIDE it away!

I fitted so many wheels up, I could do it blindfolded, and I can even index the tyre brand to the valve location during tyre fitment, rather than turning the tyre on the wheel afterwards...

Thats not unusual, after a while of doing the same thing you can feel the number of things in your hand by weight and approx bulk.

It's not a concious thing just feels right.
