I can also do that, I often have belching contests with the guys!

I have a lot of quirks, but I don't always realise they are quirks!

When I was in high school I could write backwards. My best friend and I used to write notes to each that way. I don't think I could do it anymore.

:twisted: Talking of reading, writting, and such matters.........

Reinhard Heydrich (head of the RSHA, whose most infamous department was department IV which was know as The Gestapo) once had a female secetery with an unusual quality.
She could speak English, and listen to English being spoken.
She could read English, she could write English.

But she didn't understand a single word of English :shock:

So you could dictate a letter to her in English and she'd write it perfectly (with far less spelling mistakes and grammar errors than my posts :oops: :lol: ) without her ever understanding the contents of the message.
Something pretty handy to have in the world of security and esbionage.

Can do. 8-)
To be fair, I think it's a skill that us chaps have more admiration for :lol:

That's because all your actors are French :P :D :lol:

Have I any quirks? :roll:
Quite probably.
I think one of the most obvious is the telling an weird anicdote during any given thread.
In fact, I think I could find a link to an anicdote about the war or Meat Loaf alone within any three steps :shock: (see above :lol: )
