Stupid Bar Tricks

Not sure how exactly this was revealed to the world at large, but it seems to be well-known now among those who know me: when I get a few drinks in me, and have a pen, I sketch maps of Africa on cocktail napkins. With all borders intact. Not exactly perfectly to scale -- Rand McNally has nothing to worry about -- but the countries are all identifiable.

I can't think of a less useful talent, unfortunately.

I can draw the outline of Colorado or Wyoming on a napkin. I'd consider that far less useful.

Do you ever get them confused, and draw Colorado when you meant to draw Wyoming? I imagine that would be a social faux pas.

Unusual, but definitely a better skill than hanging a spoon off the end of one's nose.

Try Europe next time.
