Popular Mechanics, a magazine I've never read much, has a list of 25 things every man should know how to do.
Here's the first 10:
1. Patch a radiator hose
2. Protect your computer
3. Rescue a boater who has capsized
4. Frame a wall
5. Retouch digital photos
6. Back up a trailer
7. Build a campfire
8. Fix a dead outlet
9. Navigate with a map and compass
10. Use a torque wrench
Ut oh. I'm in trouble. I'll blame this on my dad. He never taught me these things.
I never was much mechanically inclined. Some people make their living with their hands, some with their mouth. I use my mouth... and too often it's tongue tied.
The rest of the list is here. How do you rate?
