    Default Things a Man should be able to do.

    Skills for Men - Things Men Should Be Able to Do - Esquire

    I can do damn near all of the things on this list but the ones I cant I really cant.

    65-67 Throw a ball, throw a spiral, shoot a jump shot.

    I can do the first two but replace the last one with shoot a double leg then I can do all three.

    The toughies

    11. Swim three different strokes. Doggie paddle doesn't count.

    I can backstroke, otherwise you'll find me at the bottom of the pool or lake.

    16. Tie a bow tie.

    Ah, has anyone heard of clip-ons ?

    32. Describe a glass of wine in one sentence without using the terms

    How about, What do have on tap?

    63. Deliver a eulogy.

    I'd lose it before I even started. Can't handle that stuff.

    Things that I can't do:
    4. Score a baseball game - I used to know, but its been a long time
    16. Tie a bow tie. - I never had to and suspect I never will
    20. Sew a button - I probably could do this if I tried, but I never have
    32. Describe a glass of wine in one sentence without using the terms nutty, fruity, oaky, finish, or kick - I rarely drink wine or I am not pretentious enough to try to describe it.
    65-67. Throw a baseball over-hand with some snap. Throw a football with a tight spiral. Shoot a 12-foot jump shot reliably. Since my shoulder surgery I have trouble throwing balls except underhand

    Swim three different strokes? How does that make you a man? You will never -- never -- need to know more than the backstroke or frontstroke unless you are a pro swimmer.
    You do the math..... I'll do the alfredo!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!

    44. Ask for help.

    Guys who refuse to ask for help are the most cursed men of all. The stubborn, the self-possessed, and the distant. The hell with them.

    How did this list get put together without "kill, clean, and cook an animal/catch, clean, and cook a fish".
