Dear 100 Hour Board,
what are your greatest useless talents?
In case you are wondering that's around 1,400 pencils stacked on top of each other. This tower is 12" 1' which happens to be the unofficial world record. If I can get 13" 0' I'll have an official world record. How's that for great useless talent?
I can throat sing, but like, not well enough for it to be useful. Which honestly even if I was good at it it would still be useless.
Keep it real,
Playing on playgrounds. I grew up in a fantastic neighborhood where all the neighborhood kids played on our local playground up to our high school graduation. Give me a playground, and I'll be able to expertly climb and jump around every inch of it.

When I was young, I practiced making weird faces quite a lot, and mastered a strange curl to my lips that makes for a very strange facial expression. Besides that, I have the ability to taste food for hours after I ate it.
I am really good at picking the exact right tupperware to use for a given amount of food. Believe it or not, I have had people encourage me to put food in tupperware for a talent show before. For example, here is a picture from two weeks ago of a tupperware I chose for a random amount of leftover tomato sauce on the first try:
I am usually pretty close to spot-on, even with very large amounts of food. Interestingly, my brother is very good at this as well. And, apparently, our grandmother was very good at tasks that involved judging volume. Maybe it's genetic.

I don't have perfect pitch, but one note that I can always find correctly is F sharp. My choir teacher in high school really drilled it into us that we should always be able to find at least one pitch, and for whatever reason, the one she decided we should all learn was F sharp. So out of the blue, I can always hum a perfect F sharp.
I can find the bathroom in a stranger's house on the first try. Every time.
