can't help myself

i really am working, srsly, but this article caught my eye, then it just pissed me off. here's the full article, but i can't resist making some comments.

The 75 Skills Every Man Should Master

A Man Should Be Able To:

4. Score a baseball game--holy shit are you kidding me? i realize i don't know dick about sports but is it really necessary that a guy knows how to score a baseball game?
6. Know at least one musical group as well as is possible. ok, this one isn't so bad because i have found that this is pretty true. most people, not just guys, do have one certain group they are all over and know everything about. i think that's pretty cool.

11. Swim three different strokes. ok, unless they're a life guard or in the coast guard, who cares???

15. Calculate square footage. again, not necessary but useful.

17. Make one drink, in large batches, very well. --cos of course you aren't a man unless you can make massive amounts of alcoholic beverages? stupid

18. Speak a foreign language. i'm going to throw up. why do they need to speak anything other than what i need them to say????

22. Give a woman an orgasm so that he doesn't have to ask after it. ---ok, NOW we're talking. yes, this should be number freaking one!

29. Understand quantum physics well enough that he can accept that a quarter might, at some point, pass straight through the table when dropped. ---again, interesting, but not at all necessary.

33. Hit a jump shot in pool. --yes, if he's Minnesota fats or tom cruise in the color of money, this would come in handy, otherwise, not so much.

43. Install: a disposal, an electronic thermostat, or a lighting fixture without asking for help. Just turn off the damned main.---ok, my man can do most of these things, actually, i think all of them, but i do not think it is a requirement.

73. Caress a woman's neck. Back of your fingers, in a slow fan.---yes, this should be number TWO.

Thanks for sharing that one. While I didn't agree with a lot of it, it was entertaining. And I DO agree with your pick for number one. If they have to ask it's just bad.

giving Os is always #1. if they can't do that, toss em back.
