Pretty good at breaking things, though.

6. Football is, frankly, a total mystery

Coconut coffee? Sure, whatever floats your boat... just explain how it's floating, though.


10. You're not really interested in cars


11. And if yours broke down, you wouldn't have a clue how to fix it

"Hello? Yeah, wheels fell off again... yes, all of them... I don't know, you're the mechanic!"


12. You’re actually not that keen on fighting, or even little bits of punching


13. You're not very competitive and can deal with not coming first

Feels good when you do though, doesn't it?


14. If you absolutely have to drink whiskey, you'd rather have it with some coke

It tastes like burning!


15. You don't particularly care for big dumb action movies

Nothing against Predator, just not your go-to Friday night movie.


16. You don't think about sex every seven seconds

Although according to research, no one really does.


17. You don't instinctively hate reality television, glossy magazines or things that have flowers on them



18. You don't have a man drawer full of man things

To be fair, at least the stereotypical man keeps all his shit in one place.


19. You're not really into the whole 'starting fires and burning things' racket


20. You’ve never killed, skinned and eaten an animal, nor do you have any particular desire to
