10 Things a man should do before he dies
1. Grow a Beard- All Great men who have accomplished things throughout history all had beards. Form our founding fathers to men like Robert Redford who had us captivated by there manliness and bushiness. A beard is a sign of dignity and demands respect. Therefore you must have one.
2. Get Married- At some point all great men have to settle down…but this doesn’t have to be a bad thing. A wife can be a great accessory to any man’s collection. She can be a companion on your quest, help in decision making, cooking, and upkeep of the man cave. Thumbs up for any man.
3. Go number 2 in the wood- This really doesn’t require any explanation. Taking the Browns to the Super Bowl or in this case some leafs is awesome, let alone if you are where your ancestors were. There is just something about hearing the wind through the trees and dropping a duce that cannot be beat. Over all an experience worth the list.
4. Have a Son- Every man deep down wants to be a dad. He wants to play catch with his son, teach him how to grow his own beard and to be there for him as his own father was. Most importantly keep your name and your blood line going. You need to leave behind your legacy, this is way a man should have a son before he dies.
5. Take a wild animals life- It doesn’t matter what animal it is, big or small, it just needs to die by your hand. You need to go back to when you’re Fathers, Grandfathers, Great Great Grandfather walked the earth and hunted for his own food and see how that shoe fits. I’m not saying be the animal equivalent to Ted Bundy, just a squirrel will do.
6. Get in a fight- Every man needs to learn how to defend his land, hut and woman for this you need to fight someone. I would recommend fighting someone who is smaller than you to give you a little more confidence for when you really have to throw down. Its great practice and will show women how strong you are. It will add to your man arsenal.
7. Save a life- To save a life gives you some of the greatest feelings you will ever have. It’s hard to put down in words how it feels to give life back to someone. One things for sure, there is a lot of benefits to saving someone’s life; take for instance reserving your spot in heaven. Nothing shows God that you are a good person better than saving some life. For that reason it made the man list.
8. Skydive- In order to die a man you need to stare fear and death in the face and laugh. Skydiving is one way of doing this, there are other ways but this seems to be the most available form of almost dying there is. So cross deaths line and come back.
9. Make a mortal enemy- If you look throughout history every great man since the beginning of time all had one thing in common…they all had a nemesis. So in order to die a man you need to find a person that you absolutely loth and make them feel the same. Then do things to make each other’s lives a living hell. They will be more than just an enemy; it will give hatred a new, deeper meaning.
10. Make sure that the Earth is round- All your life your teachers have been saying that the earth isn’t flat, its round. As a soon to be man, you need to learn to not trust anyone. So what does this mean? Find out stuff for yourself. Travel to the North and South Pole, inspect the world make sure that what your teacher said is the truth. Once you have done this you can die a man.
