So at the bar tonight I was thinking, if I could acquire one skill like Neo and Kung-fu in the Matrix what would it be... For me personally that's a hard question because it has 2 answers. for one I would love to be able to program. ... I suck at math and even worst at programming, I think I flunked out of it in collage.

 

On the other hand I think I would like to play piano, not just play but PLAY!

 

Sad part about that is... my mom could totally teach me. ... just never learned. Today she posted the following video and wow, I wish I could do that.

 

 

So what about the rest of you. If you were Neo sitting in the chair what skill would you want uploaded to your brain?

I'd love to 'Matrix' learn the piano too, but if it were me to choose out of selfishness... 'break the laws of physics' would be my choice

It's a toss up between kung fu and programming.  I want to make my fortune writing apps some day, but I've also always been concerned about my inability to defend myself.

To be able to learn any language fluently, and remember it. You'd make a killing as a documentation translator.

And some people may find your programs offensive.
