Skillz

Napoleon Dynamite: Well, nobody's going to go out with *me*!
Pedro: Have you asked anybody yet?
Napoleon Dynamite: No, but who would? I don't even have any good skills.
Pedro: What do you mean?
Napoleon Dynamite: You know, like nunchuck skills, bow hunting skills, computer hacking skills... Girls only want boyfriends who have great skills.
Pedro: Aren't you pretty good at drawing, like animals and warriors and stuff?
Napoleon Dynamite: Yes... probably the best that I know of.
Pedro: Just draw a picture of the girl you want to take out... and give it to her for like a gift or something.
Napoleon Dynamite: That's a pretty good idea.


What kind of skillz would you like to have?

Wish I could overcome right-handed dominance enough to competently play the piano and guitar with near-useless left appendage.

Hobbit-
I have never been a great parellel parker. But when I was teaching my daughter to drive, she needed this skill to pass, so I looked it up. There is some kind of formula where if you line up a certain way on the rear left tire of the parked car you want to park behind, and turn the wheel at that point, it consistently puts you in the right spot. You might want to Google it. It's very helpful.
