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.

- Practical knowledge of firearms.
- Learn to hunt, and butcher the animal, after.
- Learn to fly an airplane.
- Design and build an airplane.
In roughly the above order.
