I'm similar. I can spot a balloon a mile off. If a friend waves to me across a street, I'll probably not notice them. Not intentional, but like you say, it's a kind of Sixth Sense for balloons, and balloon-related activities.

Same, I can make balloon swords and hats, that's about it, I haven't tried more advanced models as I'm not sure I can do it.

I use the stylus of my Palm PDA for untying the balloons. I push it through the knot and then I can slowly pull back with the mouthpiece...

My ‘looner skills’ are/were untying balloons. When I would get many, many display balloons, I would try and untie as many as I could for later use. The ones that I could not untie were popped. Unfortunately, it’s a little more difficult for me, as I have lost a little bit of the feeling in my finger tips due to a little bit of frostbite, and slight complications from me having Multiple Sclerosis (MS). My ‘current skill’ involves ‘stuffing balloons’. I will take 24” clear balloons (purchased from Party City), and see how many 12” or 16” balloons I can inflate into them. If the 24” balloon doesn’t burst while doing this, I will then tie it off, and then bounce on it to see which will burst first, the 24” balloon, or the smaller balloons inside. I had a female friend over a couple of weekends ago for a ‘balloon bursting party’. She had never done anything like that before, and for 6+ hours, we had a blast! One of the challenges that I gave her was seeing if she could accomplish that feat. She was able to pop one of the smaller balloons before the 24” balloon burst. We then took a larger Zeppelin balloon stuffed with six 16” Uniques and both of us proceeded to bounce on the Zeppelin. Needless to say that I ‘popped’ first, with the help of her mouth and hand! 😉😜🎈

My looner skill would be to be able to have others inflate balloons for me.

I can take a very firm, tight balloon and work it until it hits that peak softness, and then blow it up significantly bigger.

I can also take the harsh chemical stench out of cheap latex.

The most useful skill, though? Putting away laundry without everything falling out of your closet.
