Let's be real here—not all of us are destined to become a genius violinist or a world-class dancer. Heck, even being an average human being sometimes proves to be too tedious. And it's okay—we're not cut from the same cloth, meaning that we all possess different kind of talents. However, some of them are getting labeled as "useless." Is it fair? I'm no expert to answer. All I can say is that my talent of twisting my feet backwards is yet to come in handy...

Some time ago, one redditor asked people to share the useless talents that they have. Believe it or not, people are full of talents that are considered useless, but are nonetheless fun and fascinating! Someone's weirdly good at recognizing fonts, while another person can hit just about anything within 60 feet with a rock. Who's going to argue that it's not impressive?

Scroll down below to read the 50 most upvoted answers from the redditors, and after reading about other people's useless skills and talents, don't forget to share yours in the comment section down below!

I’m not 100% accurate but I can look at people and tell where they’re from without hearing them speak a single word. I’m American and can do this with Americans as well as non Americans. Example: last summer I had a group of 5 and I identified 2 Belgians, a French and a German. One was so unbelievably impressed that he offered me $50 if I could precisely identify the 5th person, a woman, in the group. I looked at her, guessed French Algiers, and won the most unlikely $50 of my life. I’m a small legend in my line of work and the tourists are dumbfounded every [damn] time.

I solved that problem in a different way. I don't fold sheets. I don't iron them either. Sheets get washed, then put on the bed.

I can count the letters in any sentence while the sentence is being spoken and still pay attention to what the person is saying. I've done this since I was around 10. It's compulsive. I can't quit doing it.

I'm really good at catching things that are falling because I clumsily knocked them over. I'm like an oaf in the front half of a second, and a ninja on the back half; I have roughly the same number of spills as the average person, but with extra steps. I've done it with multiple falling objects, behind my back, with my feet - things usually don't hit the ground around me.

I never forget a face. If I’ve seen it once I’ll remember it if I ever see it again.

Pictures are a little harder because it’s a frozen moment in time and they may never look the same way.

Case in point, when I was 12 my dad introduced me to a guy and we chatted for a few moments. Almost 30 years later my dad and I were out and I said, “Dad, is that so and so?” And sure enough, it was and my dad was able to reconnect with someone he hadn’t seen in 20 years.
