    Awesome list. I have some work to do.

    Hmm… these are perhaps what the American man is all about. I think the Scottish list would have a couple of changes:

    5. Name a book that matters. Like “Ally McCoist: Portrait of a Hero”

    7. Cook meat somewhere other than the grill. Deep fry it.

    13. Throw a punch. And another. Then kick him while he’s down.

    18. Speak a foreign language? Aye, it’s called English.

    27. Drink gin with an old guy.

    31. Make a bed, out of anything.

    35. Jump-start a car (without any drama). Change a flat tire (safely). Change the oil (once). Then hotwire the car (without getting caught).

    42. Talk to a dog so it will hear. Drink a couple more pints and he’ll even talk back.

    47. Recite one poem from memory: http://www.robertburns.org/works/308.shtml

    50. Fry an egg sunny-side up. With bacon, sausages,chips, beans, haggis, and a fried slice.

    61. Cook bacon. See previous.

    64. Know that Bonnie Prince Charlie was a son of a bitch. Well, he was French anyway.

    74. Know some birds; get ‘em drunk.

    I’m looking forward to my 10 song playlist…
    I’ll let you know if you’re good enough for me to spot the message.
