    When I need a new bicycle I mine my own iron ore; smelt it in my home-made blast furnace; roll and prepare my own-recipe super light tubing; tap my rubber trees and whip up a few tyres and inner tubes; extrude spokes in a spike gizmo I whittled from an old chair; knit some close weave tight pants; trap and skin a rabbit for a useful winter cap.
    I take a brief rest in the afternoon, sip at a testosterone slurpy, and gaze at my amazing self in the wall length mirror.
    Must dash. I'm due to give my next door neighbour open heart surgery at elevenish.
    Anyone else brilliant at everything?

    At first, I misread the title as 'Anyone else smelled their own?'

    I have to agree with your sentiment there.

    Smelt is a common past tense spelling of the verb to smell in British English. But, unlike in American English, smelt and smelled occur with roughly the same frequency in British English.

    You mean you don't grow your own cotton for the tyre carcasses?

    But you’re not very good at grammar!
    Far too many unnecessary ; and - and , in the wrong places!
    Or did you get the cat you taught to write your post? if so that’s impressive:smile:

    And if the lazy sod had just done the testing instead of having a nap, we wouldn't be in such a mess.
