    i know most except all the computer crap. i just game, surf the web and check email mostly. my dad was a mechanic, and uncles in construction, everything else are pretty much hobbies we all did with the family, biking, shooting, i was CPR certified a few years back, but never renewed it. my fish filleting could use a little work, but there is always McDonalds.

    is paddling a canoe any different from paddling a raft? who the fuck uses canoes now a days anyways?

    I've done all but 3, 4, 12, and 18

    Technically I've never done 1, but I've replaced more than a few rad hoses.

    Oops, I forgot 19, never done that before.

    your list is better. if you're trying to narrow it down to 10 total. you can start by:

    - getting rid of 7, it does fall under number 2
    - maybe get rid of 3, it could technically fall under 16
    - list 4 as a subrule of 6
    - consolidate 8,9,10 and maybe 21 & 22 under Perform basic household maintenance
    - consolidate 13 & 14: Ride a motorcycle and/or horse, bonus points for both plus riding a camel and elephant
    - list 18 as a subrule of 6 and Perform Basic household maintenance
    - combine 19 with 25
    - consolidate 11, 12 and 24 into Camp and Fish, besides, who as a man needs directions?
    - 15 & 17 kinda go hand in hand, well for me anyways
    - does 5 need to be listed

    i trimmed as much as i could, but still came up with 12. someone else's turn.

    i need to learn to make a kick ass toast for my bro's wedding in September.

    All of them as long as .......

    All of them as long as "2. Protect your computer" has to do with shooting someone trying to steal it.

    Towelie, unless you're breaking the wild-caught mustang yourself, please explain how a tame horse is any different than a tame elephant :thefinger

    I've ridden a horse and an elephant but never a camel. I've ridden a bunch of camel toe however.

    Some of the camel toe was genuinely wild....
