Default How many life skills do you have?

In case you need to waste a little time today..

It's American so they seem to think that throwing a football is a basic skill. I am not convinced that skiing is a basic skill either.

Anyway I got 90. I have never had to change a tyre and don't know the best way to punch someone, although I'm guessing that 'very hard' would work, but I can put up shelves, read maps and bake cakes without a recipe.

Are you a catch too?

90.

I can change a tyre, I just won't.

I can't commit to knowing what to do when spilling red wine - only an idiot would spill it in the first place.

My US geography other than major cities is pants too.

Apparently I am - who'd have thought!

You checked off 95 out of 100 on this list!

Congratulations on knowing everything. You’re like Joan Holloway, the Dos Equis man, and the President of the United States all rolled into one.

How d'you get rid of blood stains, then? First day back at work, and thinking I might need to know by about tomorrow afternoon...

95 and a GIF of a lady pushing up her boobs (in a dress). Did everyone get that or was it for my benefit?

Sorry. I forgot I'd left my photo on there.

Well, there is apparently a lot I can't do. Although saying that it may not be quite correct...as I have simply not done those things yet.
Anyway...looking at the time I've spent on this planet and my life in general, I'd say my life skills are pretty darn good.
Oh , and I can't bake a cake without following a recipe...and even then it does not necessarily turn out the way it was meant to...but you know what...bakeries DO exist.

After getting up to #13 on the list, it struck me that most of these are jobs for the maid. So I gave up.

96 and boobs as well. Funnily, I'm not that interested in boobs.

I'm always amazed when people can't ski. It like being able to drive.
