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.

This inspired me to create my own list which, like Heinlein's, is a mix of things I've done, figure I could do if I had to, and daydream that I can do. (Unless Heinlein dictated his from beyond the grave, he had not already died gallantly.) I do not, however, remotely think they are things all human beings should do. Well. Maybe "take criticism gracefully."
