Friday Five

"A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, design a building, conn a ship, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve an equation, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects."
- Robert A. Heinlein

What are the top 5 things that every adult should be able to do?

1. Cook - at the very least, everyone should have one specialty meal that he or she does well
2. Simple carpentry - enough to do basic maintainance on a house
3. Flirt
4. Tell a joke
5. Swim

Other participants: Adam, Will, Dave, Merideth, Colleen, Chris, and Gina.
