25 Skills Every Man Should Know

created at: 12/13/2011

Esquire magazine has assembled its ultra-list of “25 Skills Every Man Should Know.” We appreciate the diversity of the list: sure, it includes stereotypically “manly” things like “Skin a moose” and “fell a tree,” but also plenty of ManMade-y stuff, like sew a button, make eggs four ways, shine a shoe, and solid relationship stuff like giving a massage, and consoling an crying woman.

And this gem:

8. Buy Clothing for Women

Tools: Credit Card, Woman’s Clothing Size

1. Don’t.

I especially love that it includes the actual step-by-step instructions for each of the skills, not just mentioning the tips, and saying “go do this.”
