Post any special skills or talents that you possess. Pictures/videos are appreciated! Very Happy If you don't have the ability to get pics/vids then simply describe the talent as best you can. Have fun showing off! Razz

Here's a video of my main talent. (awmaigawd villi irl!) Excuse the poor quality of the video.
I have more talents which I might post in the future. Wink

I can play the violin, guitar, piano, drums, and hammer dulcimer. I've played the violin the longest at close to 15 years.

Discord and Pholus, do you take lessons regularly in those instruments or is it more of a fun thing to do when you have spare time?

Here's another one of my talents. Playing the piano. I haven't taken any lessons, I mostly just check out video game piano music vids on youtube and mimic them until I know them by heart. Here's two pieces I've made myself. Smile

Spoiler:
 

That banging noise you keep hearing the echo pedal. It needs to be oiled or something.
One or two of the piano keys aren't tuned to perfection either, the echo pedal doesn't work on one key.

EDIT: Another vid.

Wow guys, nice talents. And Villi, nice rocking chair. Wink

I'm not too sure about my own talents, but I guess firestaffing counts as one. Sorta like Villi's talent, not nearly as fast, but it looks pretty cool when the wicks are lit up Smile. I also know how to play drums, but I haven't really touched them in the last year, and supposedly I'm pretty good at writing short stories/narratives/etc..

I have a whole list of hobbies that I'm wanting to pick up... guitar, piano, fire pois, cooking, tone up and give parkour a try... Real life obligations and video games tend to put off those plans though. Rolling Eyes

EDIT: Just watched those piano vids you posted Villi, and wow. You really haven't taken any lessons? You're great Very Happy

I didn't even think of writing as a talent Shmako, thanks! Surprised I namely happen to be excellent at writing completely unnecessary stuff in order to simply get more text. In fact I tried the talent out once by extending a few sentences a tiny bit.

Original sentences:
I've looked for an object in some bunkers. I found some tin-cans but I can't find the object. I'll have to talk my way out of it when my employer hears of my failure.

Extended sentences:
Spoiler:
 

I am also currently working on a book about some heroes fighting a witch who has an army of beetle-people. I'm somewhere around 30-40 pages on it right now. Razz

C'mon, moar talents people! Surely the nest has more to offer! Very Happy

Holy. Here I was expecting 2-3 paragraphs, and you gave us a full-size novel. You, dear sir, are the king of waffle.

My main skill (built since joining university) is freestyle whitewater kayaking...

You're probably asking "what on earth is that?!!?!" so brief description - you find a nice wave whilst paddling in your too-small kayak and then do tricks by basically using your core muscles to move the boat around you.

General idea: (skip to 1.00).

Umm.. playing some instruments i guess.
Been playing piano for ~12 years (last 4-5 years don't really had time to practice too much so even if i make vid it might be rusty)
Atm playing bass guitar with orchestra (concerts only), been playing that for about 8 years, also had a band earlier ;p
Playing tenor saxophone with orchestra (non-concert stuff), been playing that bit longer than bass,started on alto sax, then moved to tenor.

I was playing double bass earlier in my life, but i resigned from music school, cause i like programing,math and computer science bit more.

Another one of my talents is that I have memorized Pi up to the 778th digit. I have entered two Pi reciting competitions so far which were held on Pi day.

The first such competition netted me the grand prize of a Vostro V13 laptop. I won with 725 decimals. The runner-up had written 724 decimals. Here's a picture of me holding it.

Spoiler:
 

That was 3 years ago so add a pair of glasses and a beard to that pic. For the record the laptop sucks. I still have it but it's just plain terrible. I only use it as a backup laptop now and my sister borrows it from time to time.

In the second competition (2 years ago) I knew 778 digits but as luck would have it I accidentally wrote a 4 instead of a 5 somewhere around spot #339. This made me come in 2nd place and put the first competition's 2nd place person in 1st place. He had written roughly 500 digits. In total I had 777 correct but unfortunately the judges only counted up until your first incorrect digit.

The grand prize for the second competition was either an iphone or an ipod/ipad. I don't remember frankly but I know it started with an i. Ironically enough the 2nd prize, mine, was a laptop computer case. Razz Went well with my earlier prize if I may say so.

EDIT: oh and for the record, there are still talents I possess that I have yet to post. Wink

It's amazing what you can accomplish if you just put your mind to it. At 10pm the night before the first competition, in which I entered 725 decimals, I only knew 600 digits.
