That's not DO things.

DO things is change a tire, change the oil, CHECK the oil, CHECK the tires, BUILD a bench or table, INSTALL a door, install a deadbolt, shut off the water so you can replace a faucet, shut off the gas because you smell a leak, drive in the snow, drive at night, drive in the rain, drive a manual transmission vehicle, lift a heavy piece of furniture into a U-Haul, secure it, drive 2500 miles, unload it and put it where you want it.

You may not think those are 'tech', but there's a ton of real life stuff you _should_ know how to do that can save your booty (and bank account) while you're not designing electronic doodads or flappy apps.
