I really like the spirit of MANhood. There's always MAN and Bro. codes that remind each of us the sacred acts of MANliness. However at times, the art of MAN-craft gets lost and these need to be revisited, just so we don't forget the basics. Before the upcoming New Year, it was great time to put together Uncle Peter's top 10 MAN rules or better yet, life skills, that are solid reminders.
1. CHOPPING WOOD
If you’ve never used an axe to chop wood, you’re missing out on a classic man past time. Plus it looks bad-ass.
2. BUILDING A REAL FIRE (NO MATCHES)
With the wood you just gloriously chopped, this is a basic survival skill every man should know. Trust me, you’ll be the most popular guy on that camping trip when your friends forget to bring the matches.
3. PROPERLY GRILL A STEAK
You can use the fire you just built from scratch. Don’t cook it well done, because that animal already died once for you, please don’t kill it again.
4. THROW A REAL PUNCH
You should avoid violence at all costs, but if it’s not an option, make sure you win. Especially if he wants a well done steak.
5. BE A GENTLEMAN
Chivalry is only dead If you keep killing it. Nobody likes a douche. Treat them like a lady, and (hopefully) they’ll treat you like a MAN.
6. LEARN TO USE POWER TOOLS
Measure twice, cut once. Because making stuff is awesome.
7. KEEP A PAPER MAP IN THE CAR
When devices fail and batteries die, that GPS will only make a great paper weight.
8. LEARN TO TIE A TIE
The Windsor, the Overhand, the Bow. Don’t matter. You need it to clean up nice. Plus a strong knot is sexy.
9. IF IT SCARES YOU, DO IT
Nothing more MANly then owning your fears.
10. HOLD YOUR LIQUOR SON
Nothing is less MANly then a sloppy, slurry drunk. You don’t want to be that guy.
HAPPY NEW YEAR.
