One Amazing Thing I've Done

In Sri Lanka I saw some of the most grateful people in the world. People who had lost homes, beds, land, gardens, family members; and yet one of them still had the courage to say, “Something better than nothing.” He's a better man than I.

Teach, Learn, Share

I could teach you how to make noise with a keyboard or with a pair of drumsticks. It could even be organized, if you'd like.
Various skills for mariokart on snes. I'm very talented at this game.
Speed reading. Bread baking.
What to do if a tornado is approaching and you have a flat tire and it's hailing. (But only if you have a camera rolling.)
How to sing in multiple voice registers, in a healthy way.
