          Back up data, lol.

          Might as well put read instructions, ask for directions, and wax their bikini line on there too.

                      9. Navigate with a map and compass

                      This is also crap. You need to be able to get from anywhere to anywhere without map or compass or having to stop to ask anyone. Key skill.

                        17. Paint a room

                        To be avoided at all costs. ESPECIALLY doing so WITH your wife. The heck with money and sex. Painting a room together has to be the number one cause of divorce. Not kidding. Don't do it.

                            just finished three rooms with my wife and believe me it helps to do it blindfolded and just ignore paint on the celing and light switches!!!

                            btw we are still married. :-)

                              Yeah, we have too. We have actually done quite a bit and will be married 12 years tomorrow. But man, we've had some blowouts over painting a damned room! You have to make sure at least one of you is in a decent mood or plan on huge cleanups! :-)
