Thread: How many of the following "guy things" can you do?

  1. #1

    How many of the following "guy things" can you do?

    (for the record, I can't do any of these):

    Juggle
    Ride a unicycle
    Dunk a basketball
    Handstand
    Standing back-flip (on the ground/not a diving board)
    Throw a knife or ax and stick it
    Bounce a golf ball off the face of a club for more than 3-4 times
    Keep a wooden paddle ball thingy going

    I've always been horrible at stuff like this; can barely make a Slinky go down two steps.

    I'm gonna go ahead and say I appreciate your non-stereotypical list of guy things.

    Also, I really wanna know what poster can still dunk a basketball.

    none of them

    I'm 6'4" and can barely touch rim

    blessed with just zero fast twitch muscle fibers

    Well, you'd fit perfectly on my team.

    Juggle - yes
    Dunk a basketball - used to be able to, not anymore
    Ride a unicycle - never tried
    Handstand - used to be able to, would probably injure myself if I attempted now
    Standing back flip - tried once in high school, made it about 90%, which didnít feel too good; would likely permanently injure myself if I attempted now
    Stick a knife/axe - never tried, but reasonably confident I could do it
    Golf ball bouncing - yes
    Wooden paddle - yes (my kids sometimes end up with one and can still do it).

    Iím 41, and my athletic decline has been steep over the last few years. Iím amazed at what I can no longer do that I could 5 years ago and what makes me feel sore after doing now

    When I saw this thread title I was thinking my answer was going to be "All of them except skin a buck."

    Instead, I'm like WTF ?

    None of these are guy things but

    I can do all of these except dunk a basketball and standing backflip. Certainly could never do a standing flip but could dunk a soccer ball or volleyball in hs and can still dunk a tennis ball and easily grab rim at ~ 5í10Ē+

    Better than 6 for me is just drive a stick on ice up a hill or parallel park over a snow bank or park a semi/long truck back a long driveway.

    I also think field dressing animals like deer or small game, as well as cleaning firearms and building a fire and starting without matches is good.

    I hardcore reject that any of these are masculine tasks but they are things I take pride in my ability to do.

    Word. They were off the top of my head from things I'd done in the last month. Your additions are spot on.

    Curve ball is a good one. I don't know if I can still do that.
