The wife and I were talking about this the other day, and I would be curious to see what other stupid/useless things people can do.

For example, when driving on roadtrips, to pass the time I've learned I can identify makes/models of on-coming traffic from ridiculous distances. My wife started keeping track of my accuracy. Once the vehicle becomes visible, I have 5 seconds to ID it. During the day, I'm about 90 percent accurate. The oddest thing is that my accuracy increases to about 93% at night.

I've done that for years myself. It's not useless when you can recognize the fuzz before they get up on ya though.:9:

When walking, I know about 15 feet ahead of time where my foot will fall if I keep that pace.

edit: sort of related to that, I've always had a knack for estimating distances and numbers. Not calculating, just estimating.

Estimate what year the Saints win the Super Bowl ,Jonesy
I have, but you won't like it.

And that's prediction, not estimation. My skills of prediction are shameful, as proven by my 4 years of fantasy football records

I'm jealous of the bubbles. I spent an entire week of camp trying to get that done as a kid. That, the loud 2 finger whistle and the train whistle sound made from clasped hands have always eluded me.
