Drive Stick Shift
Evan Miller (maniacally)
Daniel Rooney (erratically)
Brendan Dougherty (smooth as shit out of a duck's ass)
Joe Shoer '06 (proficiently)
Katie Montgomery (could drive anything from a '82 Toyota Tercel to a forklift, or so she believes)
Jessica Chung (I learned in a week.)
Samantha Peterson (automatics are for women)
Janey Waney Lee (She doesn't even need to say anything.)
Leah Joy Weintraub (In her other life, she actually is a race car driver.)
Lucy Cox-Chapman (Knows the subtle sounds of her transmission better than you do)
Helena Harnik '07 (I have two driving licenses, one for each side of the road. Yeah that's right- I can use either hand to shift. That makes me 2x more stick-savvy than everyone else)
Drive Really Fast In Reverse
Change a Tire
David Rodriguez '06 has changed more than his fair share of tires and learned that salt+rust will effectively glue a wheel onto the axle. Solution? Wedge the flat edge of your hubcap-removal tool into the jammed area and whack the crap out of it with a hammer. Eventually, if you're lucky, that wheel will pop right off.
Jumpstart a Car
David Rodriguez '06 has also had his fair share of car jumpstarts and knows not to connect the black plug to red and red plug to black. If you do, you will blow the battery fuse in your fusebox and burn out some expensive component in your car. Through his learning processes, he found just how costly it is to replace the stock amp that powers your stereo.

Foreign Object Tricks
High Velocity Carbon Training
Lisetta Shah can find 4-leaf clovers pretty much just by looking down at the ground for a couple seconds, and sometimes without even that much effort.
