    What were you good at when you were younger, but are now past it ? Something you were really proud of, but now you cant do any longer.

    Not the age related stuff, like running the marathon or playing footie, but other skills or traits that have fallen into disrepair.

    I used to be good at programming.

    Now through a mixture of senility, alcohol and utter contempt for the industry I'm pretty useless these days.

    But I'm 1000% better at bulltulipting and people skills, so boomed!

    First in ART in my school year aged 12 and I made it on Tony Harts Gallery.

    Those drawings are still probably better that all the architectural diagram sh!t I come up with these days.

    Clay pigeon shooting, I once beat Jackie Stewart. Well, I got 10 out of the first 10 in a 100 bird competition, he only got 9. He did go on to get 98 and I got 93 but I was in the lead for a while.

    Boxing.

    I was a tall lad with long reach, absolutely no temper, and could think.

    Trouble is I had no interest in it at all so just stopped at about 13/14.....
