We all love talented people. From talent shows to circus acts to live performances, we enjoy watching other people do things we can’t. But the truth is, many of us have unique talents of our own—just not normal ones. If you want to find a random skill for yourself, here are a few of the best useless talents you should learn.
Figure Out How To Moonwalk
Everyone loves a fun dance move. Whether you’re a shy dancer needing extra courage or an experienced one needing new ideas, the moonwalk is the perfect dance move to learn. Figuring out how to move your feet, ankles, and legs in such odd motions will take practice, so watch a few tutorials and learn from Michael Jackson, the master himself.
Learn How To Pick Locks
Lockpicking is one of those skills you see on every crime TV show—either the perp or the police use special tools to access a building or room. Though you should only ever use lockpicking for noble or hobby purposes, it doesn’t hurt to have the skill in your back pocket. If you love the challenge of a good puzzle, start your journey with a high-quality lock pick practice set that you can use to learn the basics. As you master certain lock types and picking styles, try moving on to electric lock picks and more challenging locks. If you want to show off at a social gathering or help someone locked in a room, your lockpicking skills will surely impress everyone around you.
Pick Up Pen Tricks
Everyone saw that cool kid in class who twirled their pen or pencil across the back of their finger and caught it. And every time you tried it yourself, your writing instrument went flying across the room. Well, no more! Pick up a few pen tricks of your own and wow the people at your school, office, or home.
Everyone loves a good trick, but juggling always takes the cake. Juggling is a classic skill, so try your hand at it! Once you grasp the basics of juggling three simple objects, try juggling with objects of varying sizes and shapes. Then, add more and more items into the mix until you can really make an impression. Who knows? Maybe you’ll be the next famous chainsaw or torch juggler!
Once you can nail a few of these useless talents you should learn, branch out to others. There’s a whole world of exciting and entirely unhelpful skills that you can investigate. Try your hand at each of these, and see which works best for you!
