What is a skill you'd like to learn and why?

Skateboarding or Snowboarding. I've tried both and failed, but maybe if i put more time at'em and better locations to start with.
says Tanor_Faux on Jun 20th 18 (#2781837)
I agree, I'd like to learning boarding (Skate, Snow, Surf, etc) in general as well... though I've kinda given up because I haven't seen someone my size do them well... of the tall people doing them, they all seem like flag poles.
says Zolfie on Jun 20th 18 (#2781858)
It's difficult, snowboarding and skiing as well. Like i want to do moguls, want to do freestyle, but my issue is my stature and mild cerebral palsy. I've gotten around it sometimes, like it affects biking too, so i doubt i can do bunny hops, but it'd be great to actually do the stuff BMX or X-games could do or do long-trip biking.

Building. I plan to buy a small bandsaw sawmill to mill out my own lumber, and I have this compulsive need to build my own "Thoreau" tiny house on my land down near the back side in the woods by the river. I know pretty much how I will build it, but being rock solid on all areas of the build would be a plus.
says Freeranger on Jun 20th 18 (#2781844)
That sounds pretty cool! Sounds difficult too.
Any idea how many trees you'll need to harvest for this project?
says Budwick on Jun 20th 18 (#2781850)
I'm targeting the Woodland Mills 126 bandsaw mill. If I prefer to mill out longer stuff over 20', they sell extended tracks.
In terms of diffuculty....it really isn't that bad. My plan is to fill a couple of 10" sonotubes with cement on the sloped side of the build where the ground drops away just a bit, and then just make sure the floor is up off the ground to prevent rot. I will probably go with pressure treated lumber for that.
It's a very small build, 12x16, and it should be relatively inexpensive to build. I've been researching ideas for some time now and, I can visualize the end product. It will sit on a tiny, quiet bend in a small river. I plan to insulate it, and add a woodstove, so that I can sleep over in Winter

I wish I could play an instrument. I’m always envious of people with musical talent.
says Logan on Jun 20th 18 (#2781848)
This is a question that has vexed me most of my life.
I would like to be proficient at lots of things.
As a result, I am a jack of all trades, and a master of none.

Flying...I hate waiting at airports
says JD on Jun 20th 18 (#2781860)
I can offer you a decent discount for drunken helicopter lessons.
says ZonkeyBalls on Jun 21st 18 (#2782133)
I've tried that I kept crashing...
says JD on Jun 21st 18 (#2782137)
That's because you are too old to react properly, Jimmy. Here, have some PCP and Angeldust, should keep you alert enough.
says ZonkeyBalls on Jun 21st 18 (#2782139)
Can still run 100 metres in 9.3 secs.....if the car starts
says JD on Jun 21st 18 (#2782143)
That's not a car. That's a racing horse. I know, they look a lot alike with each others, but horses are much more frightening. Stallions have a gear shift in the middle. Others aren't stick drive, but automatic.
says ZonkeyBalls on Jun 21st 18 (#2782146)
I would like to be able to learn digfferent languages, but my rote memory sucks.
says Will_Janitor on Jun 20th 18 (#2781882)
I would like to play the guitar.
says StarzAbove on Jun 20th 18 (#2781908)
Play the guitar, because I'm too lazy to take the time to learn.
says trooper on Jun 21st 18 (#2781988)
I once boarded a golly green giant while asking the driver

LT. this one is for you
says Neanderthal_Momdoer on Jun 21st 18 (#2782009)
To blow stuff up in complete silence, without causing any security alerts at the perimeter. Also, it would be awfully nice to know how to fly a chopper, when completely sober.
says ZonkeyBalls on Jun 21st 18 (#2782135)
Fly helicopters while on bad weed, that's some trip right there.
says Tanor_Faux on Jun 21st 18 (#2782239)
I thought brownies were "2 girls and 1 cup" sort of thing.
says ZonkeyBalls on Jun 21st 18 (#2782242)
hey zonkey get yourself a little drone helicopter
says LorraineTwevlehundredRaineTwelvehundred on Aug 9th 18 (#2801156)
It's a silly thing, but flying those is completely different, since the controls aren't exactly the same. I wouldn't want to risk it.
says ZonkeyBalls on Aug 9th 18 (#2801176)
I don’t remember swimming after I caught my legs in algae at the beach when I was 6. I want to learn proper swimming. Also, I want to learn how to ride a bike(Yea, I’ve never done that), some form of martial arts, preferably karate. I love learning new languages.
I also want to learn inserting a central line, doing a lumbar puncture and thoracotomy.
I actually have a couple of other things too. I have them on a list and I’ve struck out a few.
says ZaraZooper on Jun 22nd 18 (#2782978)
I'd love to learn a trade, like massage therapy. Also, if it were physically and mentally possible, I'd wish to know every language.
says Trish on Jul 11th 18 (#2790105)
I'm fine with 10 languages xD

I would like to learn carpentry, so I could do some things without help.
says LorraineTwevlehundredRaineTwelvehundred on Aug 9th 18 (#2801151)
To play the piano. I regret stopping.
says Walt_OReagun on Aug 9th 18 (#2801247)
I'd like to have the auto mechanic skills to a high enough level, where I could restore some old cars, as a hobby, when I retire.
says JustJimColo on Aug 9th 18 (#2801335)
Playing the piano and violin. Singing too. I love music. I wouldn't mind knowing (and having the imagination) to compose. It would make me happy.
Same with painting and writing (proper, decent writing that could get you a best-seller).
