I know I have certain abilities, and more than a few people have observed them, but I have found them not to be useful in accomplishing any life goals
and I haven't harnessed them.
I can't predict lottery or lotto numbers
BUT I can do useless things.
1. For three solid days some years ago, I had some fun with my staff in an open-plan office of six people with one main incoming line phone line
distributed by our secretary. While I was in the office, I predicted the staff member for which each and every incoming call was directed, before she
answered. Every time. Over 120 calls. There was one call where I couldn't say. It was a wrong number. We all laughed. The staff knew that there was
some trick I was playing to achieve this and they were frustrated by how it was done. But there wasn't a trick.
I still play this game occasionally wherever I end up. 'Can you get the phone?" "No, it's for you." Just have to make sure you 'feel' really
confident, but I haven't been wrong yet in many years of practice
2. I can predict the next line of dialogue in dramatic moments of Hollywood flicks I have never seen, word perfect. But that is a matter of having
seen too many, and the formulaic crud that comes out of Hollywood.
3. When TV channel surfing, I flick back to the program I want to watch within one second of the ad break coming to conclusion, any time day or night
and irrespective of the number of ads programmed in ad breaks for that timeslot, without the aid of a watch. Perfectly, every time, with witnesses who
don't get it, and who say "Can you flick back now" to which I reply "No, the ads aren't finished".
Those are generally fun but non-pragmatic abilities. I watch less and less TV these days.
