The Man Test - Review

When the boys are here, you can only IMAGINE the way this house runs...
Who knows more of what..
Who is stronger, smarter, faster...
You get the picture?

I was asked if I was interested in reviewing a book to test the knowledge of man.
LOL.
What do you think I said?!
Heck yes, I would love to check this out!
Granted, the oldest of the boys is 15, but still...
A little healthy trivial competition has never hurt anyone!

The book came and I was ready to dive in!
Ha, I wanted to know what "The Man Test" was about and I have to say, I learned several things!
Marc and Roman, the 15 year old, answered the questions as I read them out loud.
(Of course, I was guessing with them!)
The great thing is that the answers are a few pages back, so everyone can test their knowledge!

Now, I learned several things in here and it was fun to watch a wonderful Dad/Son moment in seeing who knew more...
But, there were a couple things that had me wondering the accuracy.
For example:
Under normal driving conditions, how often should you change your oil?
Their answer: c. 7,500 miles.

Now, I don't know much about cars, but I think that this is off....

Other than that...
The questions were educational:
True/False: If an egg sinks in a bowl of water, it may be spoiled.
The answer:
False, if it FLOATS in a bowl of water, it may be spoiled.

I like this one:
True/False: Your belt color should match the color of your shoes.
TRUE!

Wish more guys would read this book!
From tips to laundry and everything else, this would be a great book to give a guy in your life!
(Not just for the fun, trivial point, just in general!)

  2. Huh. I didn't know that about an egg, although I'm guessing it's the bad gasses that cause it to float?
