I was messing around with my own hidden talent the other day and thought 'I wonder what other peoples hidden talents are?'

So now I am asking... And to start off with I'll tell you mine: I can write on grains of rice. Don't know where or when I found the talent, don't even know why, but I can.

So what's your talent that not too many people know about? Can you lick your elbow? Can you spit fire? Drink a beer in one gulp? Scuplt? Not your job, not your magic, just that odd thing that you can do....

My question is what made you pick up a grain of rice and try writting on it?

My talent is as a mimick. I can mimick voices and accents. I had a contest against a clerk of mine who is fluent in French (he was a missionary there to save their heathen souls, he failed) vs me who speaks no French. The judge was from France. I won because, as the judge said, while I was speaking jibberish I had the accent down while the other guy sounded like an American speaking French in a monotone.

My lil' ol' chubby wife can lift her leg over her head, which freaked her doctor out.

I dunno really Santa... I had a .005 pen and I was seeing how small I could go.... The rice was on the cabinet and I decided what the heck.

Like Santa, I also mimic accents. When I perform straight "magic", my character is a bit of a con man from Blackpool. When doing bizarre magick, I am Romanian (it helps that I speak Romanian)

I have British, Welsh and Scottish acquaintances who talk to me about "home" all the time. It is getting so that I use the Blackpool accent so much that it is starting to creep into my "American" voice.

Italian accents are easy because I grew up hearing them and I HAD to learn Italian.

But for the life of me I cannot do Australian for any longer than three seconds.

*GRINS* Accents open many more things besides doors.

Namaste,
Vlad

PS: Judah, what you are doing with grains of rice is a very honored art form. Rice grain sculptures are also amazing.

I do wonderful imitations of the voices of Abraham Lincoln and George Washington. My Millard Fillmore needs a little work, but is passable, and if you don't listen too closely, it sounds as if he were talking on the telephone.

For Millard Fillmore you have to make it nasal.

The only other things I'm good at are singing and pool.

Not that it's a "hidden" talent as anyone who knows me knows that I sing. I'm really into Barbershop Music and other style of A Cappella Singing. I'm a member of The Vocal Majority Chorus based here in Dallas, Texas. The chorus has won the World Championship of Choral Music 11 times (ten of those wins were consecutive).

For more information on The Vocal Majority, visit us on the web at http://www.vocalmajority.com. For more information on The Barbershop Harmony Society, visit them on the web at http://www.barbershop.org.

I have always enjoyed pool. When I was younger, I played semi-pro on the 9 ball circuit back in Virgina. I play on and off today whenever I have time. My biggest thrill was being able to play and talk trick shots with both Tom "Dr. Cue" Rossman and Mike Massey.

Two years ago, I was actually performing at a gig and Mike Massey was there doing a trick shot show. It was nice to see him again...

Not really hidden, but not really Magic as well.

Now if I could do them all together, we'd have some kinda ROUTINE! Smile

I am one of the best radio jugglers in the world. I do not juggle radios, but I perform juggling tricks while on the radio, and I have never dropped while performing on the radio.

There isn't much call for it but I can easily write backwards. I can also write backwards and forwards at the same time (using two hands). I used to write and draw with both hands but I try to stick with my right hand now because it helps with the dyslexia.

I can swallow air and make loud, fairly long burps anywhere at anytime and even during beatboxing.

I can mimic the mouth movements and speech of those guys in the 8mm Kung Fu movies.

I can eat 60+ slices of fried Bacon on a whim.

I used to be able to suck an entire bottle of Cisco through a straw in under a minute and a half.
One time, when I was young, I botched a sleight so bad, Vernon, Marlo & Miller rolled over in their graves. But I didn't see Elmsley, probably because he was behind the others.
