    Nerd alert! Way back in 1981, trying to learn “Assembly” programming language.

    I had a knack for learning many programming languages very quickly - in fact that same year, I learned one during a ten day ski vacation - yet the Assembly language kicked my butt.

    I think whoever thought of that language was probably dropping acid.

    Ice skating. Now, I was GREAT at roller skating. Seriously good at it! Took lessons at a rink and all! Put on ice skates and I couldn't stay upright.

    I found a problem skating on ice at a Rink. I could skate well on the natural ice but at the ice Rink I couldn’t stay up. The ice must be super hard.

    Learning to use my left hand for even the most mundane things when my broken right hand was in a cast.

    Hitting a golf ball straight. I played baseball as a kid. My eye hand coordination is good. If I can hit a moving baseball, I thought that hitting a stationary golf ball would be a snap. I can hit it and hit it solid. I have no idea where it is going.
