Esquire magazine has an annoying tendency to tell you that a real man has to spend $5000 on an outfit, but they also have plenty of good advice. This quick list of 75 Skills Every Man Should Master seems like a pretty good rundown of useful things to know. Tip o' the hat to Paul Clark for the reference.

I've recently been pondering Heinlein's list: "A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly."

I've only done ten of these but I expect to do two more in the near future. I'm halfway through!
