    Easy, because its a list put together by the "manly men" at Esquire magazine.

    Being able to swim different stroke can save your or someone else's life.

    If you have to swim for a extended length of time you will begin to tire. As you tire if you can switch to another swim stroke you can use other muscles and give the tired muscles a chance to recover.

    Times you may need to swim a long time- boat capsizes, rip tide pulls you out, caught in a river current etc.
    If we don't fight hard enough for the things we stand for, at some point we have to recognize that we don't really stand for them.

    Haven't given a eulogy (thank goodness) - otherwise got the list pretty well covered.
    Those of you who think you know it all really annoy those of us who actually do ;)

    Best advice I ever got in regards to giving a eulogy: don't be the person who starts it with "I" or "me." Damn near all of them do though; the eulogy isn't about you.

    7. Cook meat somewhere other than the grill.

    Is that possible?

    18. Speak a foreign language
    I know C++, that is foreign to most people.

    19. Approach a woman out of his league.
    This is routine when men have consumed at least 12 beers

    46. Tell a woman's dress size.
    Its always 1 in my book! That is the safest answer.
    I will smash your face into a car windshield and then take your mother, Dorothy Mantooth, out to a nice seafood dinner and never call her again!

    Tell me about it, this morning, I woke up and I shit a squirrel, but what I can't get is the damn thing is still alive. So now, I've got a shit covered squirrel running around my office and I don't know what to name it.

    I still really hardly have any words about this article. Repulsive, utterly repulsive.
