This discussion might have already been posted, but given the number of discussions, it is hard to tell.
So here goes:
I want to initiate the ultimate list of Manly Things.
Add to it, or even disagree with something someone has added, but NO DUPLICATES (that means, you have to read and pay attention to what has already been listed)
Does not have to be physical things, can also be activities, etc.
I am interested to see if we can reach 1,000 items; shouldn't be that difficult.
Here are my contributions for the first 25:
1. barber shops
2. coin collections
4. Aqua Velva
6. wing tips
7. pin up posters
8. beer mugs
9. Right Guard
12. betting shops
14. chewing tabacco
17. hairy pits
18. hula girl lamps
19. English Leather
21. cowboy boots
24. shoe shine kits
25. money clips
Damn straight, on all of these!!! BRAVO!

Since I was reminded by the local one starting up this weekend:

172. the motion picture Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
173. Writing your name in the snow
174. Teaching your son how to write his name in the snow
175. Having a workshop full of tools and the knowledge of how to use them
176. Supporting your wife and kids without handouts

181. Out of curiosity, what would be considered "Heavy"? I'm not above carrying stuff for ladies. But only when it's really necessary. I helped a lady-cousin of mine haul two 80lb suitcases up...and then down...three flights of stairs. She obviously couldn't do that herself and I was happy to help.
My mother makes a fuss over a bag of groceries that weighs 10 pounds. That's hardly heavy and she was still whinging about it.
