This takes the “I’m totes a mechanic” feeling from changing a tire and ups it by like 200%. I personally think it’s an atrocity that manual cars are almost extinct on this side of the Atlantic.
The final car-related item, this again is just something that’ll help you out when you’re in a bind. Know how to hook the flusher handle back up to the rubber valve thingy in the reservoir when the toilet won’t flush (you don’t even need to know what those parts are called!). Few things are worse than being in a hotel room the night before a big day (wedding, client meeting, steak night at Denny’s) and you find yourself sans a button.
Equally important as putting clothing on is the knowledge of how to take your partner’s clothing off. Now, I’m as excited about propane and propane accessories as the next guy named Hank, but grilling with charcoal takes more skill and quite frankly leads to tastier results. I have a theory that if you really want to impress people with your cooking, don’t try to wow them with some flashy dish.
This is more of a modern man kind of a thing, but it goes along with being able to help others and being self-sufficient. It’s just the right amount of ease combined with the feeling that you actually accomplished a feat on your car that it would be remiss of any man to lack this skill. There are all the “car aficionado” reasons for driving or knowing how to drive a stick (better feel for the car, better gas mileage, etc. Plus it feeds some deep-rooted prehistoric thrill to be able to make the means you use to cook your food.


Go with one of the simplest dishes that’s actually not so simple to get impressively right. There are far too many bourbons in the world to discover for me to waste my time with wine. You just need a container to capture the old oil, new oil and oil filter, a wrench, and a piece of cardboard to lay on. Or if you swing for the dudes, don’t be fumbling about undoing those button-fly jeans (but do chide your partner for wearing button-fly jeans. But even when you’re at a home with a fireplace and you’re nominated to build a fire, know how to go in there (without that artificial log you don’t even unwrap to light) and make a roaring blaze. You don’t need to know a lot about cooking to cook a steak, but your cook-cred exponentially increases when you can do it well. That being said, knowing the basics around types of wines and how to pair them with meals is key. But there are occasions every once in a while where that situation presents itself, and for better or for worse those situations are decidedly manly.
You don’t need to know how to build a PC, but at least know what the parts are (memory, graphics card, hard drive, etc.), and how to get around in an operating system. Having the ability to pull off just the right pressure, with a smile and maintained eye contact will let the other person know you know what’s up in the world and you’re ready for business.
When the rental place brings a car everyone else in that country can drive, don’t be the dummy that has to drop his head in shame and ask for an automatic.
What I’m saying is that you should have at least a working knowledge of how to get around on a two-wheeled motorized apparatus.


Put together Ikea furniture (and have the proper amount of hatred for those stupid Allen wrenches they force you to use). What I’m saying with this one is that you should know your personal relationship with alcohol.
You never know when you’ll need it, but it’s great to be able to bust out (I hope you’re seeing this recurring theme of self-sufficiency). This skill basically means that you should be able to know kinda sorta where you need to go.
Less chance that the shirts get screwed up, more chance you’ll get more mileage out of them. In other words, now how much you can drink before you get sloppy (including when that means drinking nothing). You should be able to look at a map, understand where you are, where the thing is that you want to go to, and look up and point in the general direction of where you want to go.
Sure, there are times you’re down with getting weird, but you need to be able to know going in when that’s going to happen. This is a skill that is probably not going to be around much longer, and it’s a shame ‘cause it’ll get you out of binds countless times.
