The 75 Skills Every Man Should Master
man can be expert in nothing, but he must
be practiced in many things. Skills. You
don't have to master them all at once. You
simply have to collect and develop a
certain number of skills as the years tick
by. People count on you to come through.
That's why you need these, to start.
A Man Should Be Able To:
32. Describe a glass of wine in one
sentence without using the terms
nutty, fruity, oaky, finish, or
kick. I once stood in a wine
store in West Hollywood where the
owner described a pinot noir he
favored as "a night walk through a wet
garden." I bought it. I went to my
hotel and drank it by myself, looking
at the flickering city with my feet on
the windowsill. I don't know which was
more right, the wine or the vision
that he placed in my head. Point is,
it was right.
33. Hit a jump shot
in pool. It's not something you
use a lot, but when you hit a jump
shot, it marks you as a player and
briefly impresses women. Make the
angle of your cue steeper, aim for the
bottommost fraction of the ball, and
drive the cue smoothly six inches past
the contact point, making steady,
downward contact with the felt.
34. Dress a wound. First,
stop the bleeding. Apply pressure
using a gauze pad. Stay with the
pressure. If you can't stop the
bleeding, forget the next step, just
get to a hospital. Once the bleeding
stops, clean the wound. Use water or
saline solution; a little soap is
good, too. If you can't get the wound
clean, then forget the next step, just
get to a hospital. Finally, dress the
wound. For a laceration, push the
edges together and apply a butterfly
bandage. For avulsions, where the skin
is punctured and pulled back like a
trapdoor, push the skin back and use a
butterfly. Slather the area in
antibacterial ointment. Cover the
wound with a gauze pad taped into
place. Change that dressing every 12
hours, checking carefully for signs of
infection. Better yet, get to a
35. Jump-start a car
(without any drama). Change a flat
tire (safely). Change the oil
36. Make three different bets at
a craps table. Play the smallest
and most poorly labeled areas, the
bets where it's visually evident the
casino doesn't want you to go. Simply
play the pass line; once the point is
set, play full odds (this is the only
really good bet on the table); and
when you want a little more action,
tell the crew you want to lay the 4
and the 10 for the minimum bet.
37. Shuffle a deck of cards.
I play cards with guys who can't
shuffle, and they lose. Always.
38. Tell a joke. Here's one:
Two guys are walking down a dark
alley when a mugger approaches them
and demands their money. They both
grudgingly pull out their wallets and
begin taking out their cash. Just
then, one guy turns to the other,
hands him a bill, and says, "Hey,
here's that $20 I owe you."
39. Know when to split his cards
in blackjack. Aces. Eights.
