Aside from #9, which I call "noticing and vocalizing tedious things that annoy me and I have no control over, but I feel better when I get to vent about it", that's a pretty good list. Only thing I would add is bear and/or crocodile wrestling.

Don't forget being very dangerous over short distances. Having a beard, and going swimming,with little Harry women!

Men don't have rules. It is women that make them for us. Or is that just the married misconception of it?? ???

Well preferably it is sword duels first then beer and if it is with sharps your fallen opponent is buying the rounds, if you are the one that has fallen you are buying the rounds for them hence the reason why you should always bring money to a duel for it is the epitome of bad form to die a pauper!  ;)
