What Skill Would You Use in The Hunger Games?

This week is Hunger Games madness, so here’s a question for you:

If you had to compete in a Hunger Games-style competition, what kind of competition would you excel at?

Maybe if you had to read ten books without stopping? Or list all your favorite actors without drawing breath? Perhaps you’d compete to find the lowest listed price for the next release by your favorite author?

What would your talent be?

Now, that's a tough question. Does skimming through dozens of law books for hours, looking for a needle in a haystack, without falling asleep count? I have no idea who would be nuts enough to organize such a competition, but who knows? ;-)

It frightens me to point out that I'm still passable with a traditional longbow . . . or a sword. There is a significant collection of sharp, pointy objects to show that my interest has never waned . . . ooo, shiny . . . .

My skill would be the ability to find anything: Keys, phone, iPods, homework, missing socks, etc.

Words w/Friends! Good one. I would lose there, but would win at Scramble. Didn't think about that!

I have a junk drawer like mind of useless historical facts. I'm sure at some point my life will depend on knowing the political ramifications of the Vietnam conflict, the names of various generals of the ARVN, and the legal ramifications of the trial of Admiral Karl Donitz. Not even going to get into the professor that was obsessed with Boll Weavels. At least that's what I told myself everyday for 7 years...

Chris, did you know Zog was the last king of Albania? Yeah. Right there with you in useless facts (I think you might have more than me, though).

I feel that Elektra is the vastly superior and qualified H&H tribute. Hands Down.

I would win at SET and Quiddler (two of our favorite games). By the way, I'm excited to see The Hunger Game with my friend's daughter, who plays the District 10 offering in the movie, on Sunday. Her family rented out a whole movie theatre and we're going. Should be fun!

I used to have an uncanny ability to find not-quite legal books/music/movies on the internet... Yeah, that's one for the pride book, LOL! On the other hand, it also translates over into being able to find information about a vast number of things. So I don't store as much in my head, but I can sure find it out!
