Not that I'm particularly practiced at most of them

92/100. Some of these were really inane. How is sodoku a life skill?

I don't see how braiding hair is a life skill.

it really isn't. I just learned to braid my own hair a few weeks ago and I feel like I was better off not being to. I mean I knew how to do it but I couldn't hold all my hair together at once

Grammar is not a life skill



One of the skills was "I can write a simple letter without making a lot of spelling errors"

But hot damn is this quiz shit or what?

Though I was quite pleasantly surprised with the result. And a lot of the stuff I didn't tick was pretty much created for US citizens, I don't really feel bad for not knowing what those are. But then again I got two points for knowing how to drive because apparently driving stick and driving a car are two separate skills.

Also, who the fuck doesn't know how to change a light bulb?

Oh, also, also, I can't cook for shit. That was my downfall methinks.

I don't know how to sew, use a sewing machine, braid hair, set a table, get red wine out of carpet, change a diaper, etc.

Though I do know the basics of sewing, braiding, and diaper changing, I have done neither, so I assume I'd mess up if I were asked to do them now.

You know something is wrong with the world when something concerning Facebook is considered a life skill.

spelling and grammar are two entirely different things. Bad spelling obstructs communication more than bad grammar. also, bad spelling is objective and bad grammar is subjective.

None of these skills are very impressive though. Most people know how to do them. It would've been more interesting if the options featured more specialised skills.

I mostly knew what things were, I didn't know how they worked.

- 401k.
- I wasn't sure what CPR was on my first time filling it out. I realise that it's a common abbreviation but it slipped my mind the first time. If it's taught the same way as here I know it.
- Ikea furniture. I know what Ikea is but I've never had to build anything from Ikea so I don't know if there's a special system to building their furniture. Generally the brand isn't really that popular here.
- Carve a turkey. We don't really eat whole turkeys here. Not sure why.
- Throw a football. I assume they mean the egg-shaped one. Haven't held one of those in my hand since I was a child. If they mean a soccer ball then I'm not sure why that would be a problem for anyone.
- Doing my taxes. Haven't been forced to do them yet but the system we have here seems fairly straight-forward since you get instructions for everything along with the forms. I don't know how it works in the US.
- US States. I know some of them but nowhere near all of them.

Don't know how to braid hair, fix red wine off carpet and whatever the other two was. Reading the buzzfeed comments was sad.

87/100.

I don't know how to ski, sew, do laundry, iron a shirt, braid hair, do my taxes, cook eggs, remove blood or wine stains, do long division on paper, or fold a fitted sheet properly.


But I just looked up how to fold a fitted sheet properly, so now it's 88/100.

Exactly. The importance people give Facebook these days is worrying. It can even be the decisive factor to whether you get or not a job.

To the purpose of getting yourself a job, it's probably best to not have an account at all. I'd even go as far as saying that not having a Facebook account is more of a life skill than knowing how to use its definitions properly.

I can cook because I've always helped at home. It's basically "take an ingredient and heat it to not burned or too soft in either fat, water or dry". Those are the basics and unless you forget to add salt, you'll produce a decent meal. Then you work your way up with experience.
Not sure if a sig is a necessity.

they can't check it if you don't have one. you are not required to have a facebook

It's not like I can't learn how to braid my hair, or to ski, or to memorize every US state. I just have no use for those skills.

Well still being pretty young I hope it's understandable that I didn't tick things like driving, cooking and taxes, so I got about 52/100. And how is changing the privacy settings on Facebook a life skill? I don't even have Facebook.

I disagree with all of this but you're entitled to your opinion

I didn't understand "I know how to calculate a tip". Americanism? Betting odds?

No idea what a 401k is, either.
