I found this blog, "Marc and Angel Hack Life" while ...oh never mind.  I have no idea how I ended up on this blog.  I was working on something, got distracted, and next thing you know I'm trying to figure out how many of these I have mastered.  Out of 50, I can confidently say I have 35/50 of them down pat.  When it comes to #5 on the list, let's just say I can, but not very well.  Especially not in Duluth!  Just ask my parents about my incident with the garage.  On second thought, don't.  So how many of these can you claim?
