Reliably reverse park the car. Not such a thing in the UK but Americans looked at me like I was some sort if wizard when I did it over there.

Yeah this. I can flip, Mrs F is a feeble flipper.

I’ll be honest I didn’t expect much more beyond the initial post but I figured maybe someone has like telekinesis but it only works on copies of the Radio Times from 1972 or something like that and it’d be fun to find out.

I’m very able to do that. I said so.

Just can’t get the cheese melted properly and then fold it into an omelette shape satisfactorily. Always end up with a pile of eggy mess with cheese in. Which is fine, because it all tastes the same.

Do you have telekinesis though?

Isn’t it the law in many states that you have to drive into parking spaces frontways? It’s why you only need a license plate on the rear of the car.

That may be an urban myth though.
