Ask Dr. Helen

Check out this new advice column at PJM by Dr. Helen:

To get things started, I will ask and answer the first question—it is an important one: “What kinds of things should an adult be able to do?” I have thought about this question since reading this famous Heinlein quote:

A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.

On Dr. Helen’s list: Drive a stick shift (check!), give a good backrub (check!), and understand and be able to use a basic handgun (check!).

You know you’re getting good medicine when you’ve got an advice columnist who supports the Second Amendment.

A few of my own additions to the list of what every adult should be able to do:

Clean a fish.
Change a tire.
Snell a hook.
French-braid hair.
Fold an American flag properly.

Feel free to share yours at PJM or right here.
