What can you absolutely, positively, not get the hang of...no matter how hard you try?

 

I'll start.

 

I can't ride a bike. I didn't need it when I was younger (everything was walking distance). Tried when I got older, and I just couldn't get it. 

 

I also have no sense of direction. It takes forever for me to figure out how to get somewhere. It's a running joke with all of my friends and family. I can do anything with numbers that you need, but I can't tell you, turn by turn, how to get to my house from work.

1st person shooter games. 

 

I played video games growing up. Doom, Duke Nukem, I held my own. Once GoldenEye came out and you would play against other people, I realized how much I sucked at it. I'd play Halo with my roommates back in the day. I think it was 30 kills to win. I never won. I don't think I ever got to 20 before someone else got to 30. 

 

I'd get an itch and pick up Call of Duty or something. I can do the storylines ok. But online, I'm toast. I just don't get it. I'd find a sniper rifle, know I need to get to an elevated position....killed on the way there. I'd get a shotgun, know I need to be in close range...killed before I'm close enough. I'd have a machine gun firing away, guy throws a grenade and evades my shooting...I'm dead. I find what I think is a hiding spot...I'm shot in the head from behind. 

 

I hear a lot about Fortnite. Im like, why should I even bother?

I play Bullet Force. Pretty addicting and the controls are pretty easy. I'm pretty good at it.

 

I suck at golf.


I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

My friends in college called me GOAT (they still do!), for "Goldeneye's Only Available Target," because I was so bad at that game. Like, laughably bad. I was better than them at every other game (we played NFL Blitz, Smash Brothers, MarioKart...I was easily the best one of the bunch), but I never got the hang of it.

Not even a little bit. I know how maps work, I understand "take 95 to 85 to 40," but any further than that, you might as well be talking to a brick wall.

How did you get along with geometry class?

I was always the top math student in my class, geometry included. 

 

I don't get why I could be so good there, and awful with directions. Feels like they should relate.

When you were a little kid, did you have an easy, hard, or normal time getting your right vs your left straight?

Can't do it, never have to really, but I just use older already tied ones when necessary.

Don't be hard on yourself. I think you're better at that than most.

Shoelaces.

 

I can tie a few real knots for sailing and camping and stuff like that.  But I can only do bunny ears on my shoes.  Loop-swoop-and-pull eludes me.  Though to be fair, I don't think I've put any effort into learning how to do it since I was about 6 years old.
