    I mean serious... I couldn't read all 75, I doubt any of you will either but here is the link.. don't get upset with me now... "Know Thine Enemy"

    I saw that in the womens forum the one time I was lurking in there. It scared me and I promise never to look in their forum again.

    That article was not written by a man.

    I offer the following in evidence thereof:

    In item 1. The author writes that "he" needed a White Knight. What man would utter such a statement?

    8. Not monopolize a conversation. When has a man ever monopolized a conversation?

    19. Approach a woman out of his league. What man feels that any woman is out of his league?

    21. Argue with a European without being xenophobic or insulting soccer. What man has enough disposable time to waste arguing with a European?

    45. Break another man's grip on his wrist: Rotate arm rapidly, pull toward thumb, etc. This is what women do. The correct technique is to punch the dude in the face.

    54. Break up a fight. That's crazy talk. What about all the people trying to bet? Those guys are going to be really mad.

    61. Cook bacon. The author advocates cooking bacon in an oven. WRONG. Men fry bacon, in used bacon grease.

    74. Know some birds. Reading that explanation made my skin crawl.

    This seems to be a list of things to know in order to impress people who don't know anything. "He" must live someplace where real men don't!!

    This is a much better list, and I actually read this 1.
