Being a guy is much more than being obsessed with ladies, drinking beer and watching sports. I mean, it is those things, but part of being a manly man is being able to harness our inner manliness to perform functional tasks that no other gender can accomplish (namely, the female of the species!).

There are great number of tasks that manly men can – and should – be able to perform, not only for himself but for his distinctly feminine better other half.

With that in mind, check out the following list of manly things that every guy should be able to do. If you can’t do anything on this list, it’s never too late to learn. God speed my masculine allies! Here are 75 things every guy should be able to do!
