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.

Re: 25 Skills Every Man Should Know:

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! :)

Whenever I used to get called into a meeting with the owner I would always tell someone if I'm not back in twenty page me and pretend the platesetter went down.

Worked every time.

Rats. Now if someone sees me on the phone at a show/meeting they'll think i'm just trying to avoid them. Chances are they'll be right.
