Yes, I said every man, however, I believe that many women should know these as well.  Especially if they are preppers or survivalist types.  Don’t get excited, they are not all skills that require welding or something like that.  They are skills that just make sense to me, and I wanted to share them with everyone.  For the record, I did not make this list up.  I found it on Popular Mechanics Website, and it struck a chord with me.  The Popular Mechanics Website has a pretty cool DIY section as well.  You should check out the DIY link here.
