Do you have a talent you've kept secret from Fluther or only shared privately with a few other jellies?

Asked by Hawaii_Jake (25561 points ) May 14th, 2011

I read tarot cards, and I’ve been told by a number of people I’m very accurate. I haven’t shared that on Fluther for some nameless fear.

Do you have anything you’re really good at, but don’t talk about on Fluther?

You can answer with a simple yes or no, or you can reveal it.

Hopefully, we can all be adult jellies and leave the judgment behind.

Although most of my inciteful questions and comments give me almost troll status I do in person have pretty awesome diplomatic skills, put me in the middle of any battle/argument and there are usually doves flying with olive branches shortly after,lol.
Can you give long distance readings Jake?

I have many talents, and not all of them have been made public, often since I have not had reason to mention them.

I give awesome head, or so I’m told.

Also, I paint, draw, sing, cook, and I’m learning drums.

Not that I can think of. I guess there aren’t so many that it’s hard to talk about all of them.

Coloma's avatar

Not really, My biggest talent is words, next to that, well…I do have a routine with my goose Marwyn, I always thought he’d be great on Letterman. Haha

I hold him and sing ” Row, row, roooow your flappys, gently down the stream, Marwyn, Marwyn, Marwyn, Marrrrwyn, life is but a dream!”

It is ‘our’ song, and he ‘rows’ his flappys on cue when I sing! lol
He knows EXACTLY when to start ‘rowing.’ haha

SABOTEUR's avatar

No.
I have no discernible talent.

(Please…no “everyone has talent” pep talks. I’m not fishing for compliments.)

I’m a thirty year singer songwriter and performed briefly for a party on MTV’s Real World first season a long long time ago in a galaxy far far away. No I don’t cut the heads off bats and drink their blood.

I have always had a “gut feeling” in capturing criminals right after a crime has been commited.

One example: a robber robs a gas station in my city. I was close to this call, but decided to start searching for the get away vehicle. Something told me that the robber had not used the interstate, as a means of escape. Instead, I parked my police car down the street from the robbed gas station and just waited.

I was talking on cellphone with my wife, when it happened. The get away vehicle pulled right in front of me. I forgot my wife and left my cellphone open, where she could hear what was about to happen. I verified the licese plate and advised the dipatcher that I had the robbery vehicle and my location. The robber got out of his black pickup truck and was talking on a driveup phone to someone. I pulled my service weapon(Glock 40) on suspect and ordered him to the ground. He did not obey my order, so I rushed to him and knocked him down to the ground. I placed the barrel of my Glock 40 in his mouth and ordered him to not move. While on the ground, I searched his pants. I located the robbery money and a handgun. He was placed under arrest and handcuffed.

My wife stated she heard the entire incident on my open cellphone.

Some people are born with “gut feelings” and other are not. I have been blessed.

Man, you are a true hero of law enforcement, and, it seems you have not become overly jaded, bitter, have retained your humanity as well. A rare gem in that profession. Cheers to you!

I can dance, sort of. Depending on how excited I am, however, you could be accidentally hit in the face if you get to close. I also do impressions of singers a lot, but change the words to the song I’m imitating in a funny way (the most recent impression was of Ke$ha, I think. It cracked my sister up).

downtide's avatar

I can paint well, I can sing, and I can roll my tongue into a tube so well I can suck a drink through it like a straw. But those aren’t really secrets.

I do have a secret talent that I haven’t shared here before… I write gay erotic fanfiction…

Yes.
Quite a few.
And they will be remaining so, for now. ;-)

DrBill's avatar

I have a talent that is {NSFW}

wundayatta's avatar

Hmmm. @DrBill reminds me that perhaps I do have a secret talent, after all!~

Scooby's avatar

I just thought of another one too! :-/

Stinley's avatar

I’m good at making toys talk to my kids. Sort of puppetry. The toys say crazy things and it makes the girls laugh. They talk to the toy as if it is really talking to them. I’m not doing ventriloquism – they can see my lips moving and all. No idea where the words come from, they just flow from me. I make the toys move about, tilting their heads and dancing too sometimes.
