What is the most useless talent you have?
Fall asleep in almost anywhere within a few seconds, I wish I could patent this superpower

A room were pig slaughter takes place, I really hate blood and fresh meat odour

What ridiculous thing has someone tricked you into doing or believing?
I think my friends or family don´t consider me a naïve person, because I can´t remember anything they have done with this purpose, but I remember an anecdote that happened during my Erasmus in Prague. I was having breakfast and suddenly I was kicked out of my room by the police because they had had a bomb alert, so I found myself in the street in pyjama without money and phone.
