Great list! A lot of those could apply to us too, esp. the "It's okay to trade the possibility of your 80s and 90s for more fun in your 20s and 30s"

This seems to be written by a 70 year-old man who in some cases is pining for the antiquated gender roles of the 1950s...

Never stay out after midnight three nights in a row … unless something really good comes up on the third night.
fuck off

You will regret your tattoos.
thanks grandpa

Never date an ex of your friend.
fuck, thank goodness I have mature friends who can potentially deal with this... does anybody else believe they own a woman for life after dating them?

If riding the bus doesn't incentivize you to improve your station in life, nothing will.
lol, public transportation is for losers amirite?!? YOLO

Time is too short to do your own laundry. 

yeah, that's a woman's job!!!

When in doubt, always kiss the girl.
yay sexual harassment!

Tip more than you should.
fuck off

Do 50 push-ups, sit-ups, and dips before you shower each morning. 

don't worry about your legs though! Also, who the fuck can do 50 proper dips?

this was embarrassing to read ...

Evidently being a man includes over-thinking things, making a long list from said thoughts and then feeling the need to share the list with the world. :p

Guide to "being a man"...

Men see Barbers not stylists.
You can change your own fucking flat tire.
You do not get manicures or pedicures. You wear socks to sleep.
+1 If you wear socks to bed and get some pee on the toilet, you have foot swiffers.
You shall eat many variations of pork products, and the have an a good knowledge of
beef anatomy, re: different cuts, and where off the beast they came from.
Avoid Vegans.
Enjoy blue jeans.
Make eye contact with a female of your desire, and don't lurk, go and speak.
Learn to make fire without matches or lighter.
Never wear a ballcap sideways.
Follow F1 racing.

thats all...for now.

Chin up. Don't bitch. Be sensitive. Speak when something needs to be said, not because you want to say something.

I'd assumed that meant employ a professional to do them ie. wash and fold service or a house cleaner and the writer is 100% correct on that front.

Pretty women who are unaccompanied want you to talk to them.
lol wtf
This list is pretty sexist in general.

And yet as a font lover, I love this:
Find a Times New Roman in the streets and a Wingdings in the sheets. She exists.


TRIBE Member
Some of it certainly is sexist (look who published it!), but I did like some of them, such as the font one Boss Hog mentioned, and these, among others:

When people don’t invite you to a party, you really shouldn’t go.
 And sometimes even when you are invited, you shouldn’t go.

People are tired of you being the funny, drunk guy. 

No selfies. Aspire to experience photo-worthy moments in the company of a beautiful woman.

Do not use an electric razor.

When you admire the work of artists or writers, tell them. 
And spend money to acquire their work

I have a stylist. Fuck that noise, I went to that old timey barber at Yonge and Lawrence. I got a shave with a straight razor and read playboy while I was waiting. Some guy names Guiseppe (who was 90+) cut my hair. Everything about the experience was awesome except the part where he cut my hair. I felt Will Wheaton in Stand by Me....lol

i'd agree with 80% of the list.

A few that are missing...

"Your beard should start where you head connects to your neck, not where your face connects to your head"

"Wear your watch on your left hand"
