This is a question Old stuff I still know

Our Ginger Fuhrer says that he could still code up a simple game idea in Amstrad Basic, while I'm your man if you ever need to rebuild the suspension on an Austin Allegro (1750 Equipe version). This stuff doesn't leave your mind - tell us about obsolete talents you still have.

I can recite
all the numbers between 1 and 5000 in the correct order. Not only that, but if you ask me what the nth number in that sequence is, I can tell you straight off.

I still fix stuff
When things break in my household I try to fix them. I'm not always successful but I try.

I have repaired toasters, guitar pick ups, digital cameras, lamps, tents, printers, blenders, computers, bikes, record players and much more. I hate just wasting stuff, so before chucking anything I'll dismantle it, try to find the problem and re-assemble it. Or I'll look around to try and find spare parts.
It doesn't always work and I am occasionally out of my depth - my most daft attempt was with a colour photocopier my friend was chucking out... Me and my son had fun taking it apart though after I gave up on it. We ended up covered in technicolour toner and machine oil.

Bible knowledge
Many moons ago I was a bit religulous to say the least. I spent two years (TWO WHOLE FUCKING YEARS) at bible college, as well as having read the bible through several times. So as you can imagine, I know pretty much everything worth knowing about God, at least from the fundamentalist Christian point of view.

You wouldn't believe how useful that isn't.

Actually I still go to church type things occasionally to meet up with good friends and just occasionally theological type things come up and I suddenly find myself explaining in great detail what the bible means by this that or the other. It's like I've still got a fundy hiding in my brain

I remember what my feet and genitalia look like.
Not really useless, because I haven't seen them in over a year.
Certain body parts are very prone to change, like thusly -
Pre-pregnancy: 32 B (fairly normal, nothing to write home about)
Pregnancy: 40 C (I need new clothes)
Breastfeeding: 34 DD (Holy mother of aaarrgh!)
That's a heavy load, that is.

Cast your minds back...
Before we had the internet we used to get our information from something called books. Before books we had VHS and slightly before that we had beta or betamax to give it's correct name. At the tender age of ten I could strip an old betamax machine down to it's raw components using household objects such as knives, screwdrivers and a brick in less than 2 hours. I could then unravel all the copper and lay out the microchips and other contents to cover an area of no larger than 4 square metres. Purely coincidentally this happened to also be the area of our passage.

My powers for disassembling inanimate electronic objects are still as strong as ever. I AM CAPTAIN DISASSEMBLE!

My sister and I can still get our clapping game going with all of these rhymes. And nearly as fast as we could when we were 8 and 10.

I'm 33 and she's 35.

I can say...
..."Two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun" in less than 2 seconds.

I have a feeling that in the late 70s/early 80s, McDonald's had a campaign/offer where if you could say this in under 2 seconds you won a free Big Mac.

I might have dreamt this tho.
