I seem to expect everybody I meet to be able to do all four of the following:

Swim
Ride a bike (by which I mean a two wheel bike with no training wheels)
Ski
skate (ice, not roller)

I don't expect people to be able to in-line skate or roller skate though...which is weird.

I asked a few friends and now I'm asking you. Incoming...thingie...poll. Yeah.

I didn't know you meant ice-skating. Roller blading is about the same imho

I can swim and ride a bike but I can't do the other two. I tried ice skating recently and that resulted in my girlfriend's arm nearly being ripped out of its socket, and me bleeding from a toe. So, uh, no thanks! As for skiing, never tried it.

I can do all four, but I don't expect anyone to be able to do them. Not everyone has had the advantage of living in a situation where any one of those four would even be an option. Frankly, as long as they can walk and talk, that's more than enough for me.

I too can swim and ride a bike; however I've never been ice skating. I've been skiing once and I never ever want to do it again.

swimming and skiing would probably be the hardest to reconcile.

I didn't know you meant ice-skating. Roller blading is about the same imhoProbably the only difference is stopping. (Which I'm afraid to do on either, so I either skate to the boards or fall on my ass. xD)

The only one I can't do is ski. You think there are hills in Ohio? :eep:

I can swim, ride a bike, rollerblade/skate and waterski.

Though I wouldn't really call what I do waterskiing. I'm barely able to stay up for a few seconds.

I've never tried skiing and as for ice skating, it's really difficult for me not to fall :( I haven't been ice skating in years.

And I'll give you the same answers I gave you when you asked me on MSN.

Yes, yes, um..., no, no.

If I ever got to ice skate on a really nice polished rink, i think I'd be awesome, because the place around here is free, so it's filled up with little kids all the time xD

Honestly, I'd like to learn how to ice skate. It looks like fun!

Get some rollerblades and skate on very slick tile. It's about like that. Also, if you fall, cut yourself with a razor some.

Now you make me not want to try it. :mad2:

I have never been skiing and I don't even live in a place where it snows anymore. We do have a ski shop or something like that, though o_o

I can make a two-wheeled bike go, though I've only ridden one a couple of times, so I suck at it. Same with ice/roller skates. As for swimming, I can not-drown, which is close enough I guess >.>

I can do all those activities but im not very good at any of them. Ive only been skiing once though and i wasnt quite bright enough back then to pick it up.

Next time I go i have to try out that pizza, french fries thing from South Park

I can skate, swim, and bike just great. I used to do them somewhat frequently when I was in high school. I've never had the chance to do skiing though.

I can swim and ride a bike well. I used to go ice skating occasionally, but I risk injury of others because I'm all over the place. Skiing, not so sure.

People will have time to learn how to swim when the polar icecaps melt and the world floods anyway :D

This thread has confused me to no end.

What do you mean you all don't live in Canada?

Mister Adequate

Yes, yes, never tried, poorly but well enough to get across the rink.

Bike - Yes, took me 12 years to learn...
Swim - Yes, I mean no. Black people don't swim, silly.
Skate - Ice? No. Rollerblade? Yes.
Ski - Snow? No. Jet ski? Hell yes.
