So you are offered the little red pill. Take it, and you can change all of your existing real-life skills, qualifications, strengths, weaknesses and other attributes. Of course, you can only change skills you actually have, but enhance them at the expense of others. I'd happily trade some of my professional qualifications for, say, a foreign language.

This is very tricky because Im mediocre at a lot of things, but I wouldnt want to suck at some things to do others better.

DISCLAIMER: Do not take what I write seriously unless it is clearly and in no uncertain terms, declared by me to be meant in a serious and non-humoristic manner. If there is no clear indication, asume the post is written in jest. This notification is meant very seriously and its purpouse is to avoid misunderstandings and the consequences thereof. Furthermore; I can not be held accountable for anything I write on these forums since the idea of taking serious responsability for my unserious actions, is an oxymoron in itself.

 

Important: as the following sentence contains many naughty words I warn you not to read it under any circumstances; botty, knickers, wee, erogenous zone, psychiatrist, clitoris, stockings, bosom, poetry reading, dentist, fellatio and the department of agriculture.
