|Family / 15 Things Every Man Should Know By The Age Of 30 by ledafaze(m): 3:12pm On Sep 16|
15 Things Every Man Should Know By The Age Of 30
1. How to cook a signature dish
No, "a mean beans on toast" does not count. You're 30 now, man – you need to have at least one dish in your arsenal with which to impress your friends.
Top tip: perfect the Sunday roast as its praise-to-difficulty ratio is stacked in your favour – people are disproportionately impressed by an ability to cut up potatoes and shove them in the oven.
2. Never try to replicate fun
We've all done it. You've been on an amazing holiday, or to an amazing party. Everything about it was perfect: the people, the location, the timing. So why not try to replicate it? You know, plan everything meticulously so it's exactly like it was before? Sadly, it's never the same – you always lose that wonderful frisson of unpredictability. By 30, you know just to cherish the memories.
3. It doesn't really matter what people think of you
Four words: you can't please everyone. Don't like the person I am, the person I've spent years cultivating? Bugger off, then. Goodbye forever.
4. Talking about university is boring
Ah uni, those were the days! Remember when you downed three pints of snakebite back-to-back and everyone cheered? Remember when you turned up to a seminar having not been to bed, eyes wide like saucers? Enough already. Yes you had a fun at uni but, seriously, it was EIGHT YEARS AGO! Time to move on.
5. It's easiest just to tell a girl you like her
God, it was tough. You'd go through it in your head over and over again: how do you tell someone that you like them? And what if she rejects you? That horrible humiliation; that crushing self-doubt. Yeah, all that has gone by 30. Like a girl? Just tell her. Life is short.
6. Know when to call it a night
It's 4am. You've just heard Everywhere by Fleetwood Mac for the second time tonight. The smell of desperation is beginning to pervade the room. Then someone says: "We need to get more booze." "Great idea!" comes the response. Except it's not; it never is.
7. How to choose a good wine
You don't need to be able to witter on portentously about the grape's integrity but you should by now be able to remain unflustered and pick a tasty wine when faced with a snooty waiter and a menu longer than War and Peace.
8. Fancy dress isn't all about offending others
The party invitation says "fancy-dress". What do you do? You probably want something fancy, funny and maybe a bit provocative. Fine. Then some guy thinks he's being edgy rocking up in a bin Laden outfit. "Look how shocking I am," he thinks to himself. Thirty-year-olds look at him and think: what an attention-seeking prat.
9. How to change a flat tyre
You're 30 now; it's time you acquired some practical skills. See also: putting up bookshelves and performing basic home repairs. (Confession: I am yet to change a flat tyre.)
10. Friends getting engaged is a happy occasion
I know, I know: you should always be happy when your mates get engaged. But come on: when you were 25, your first thought was, "well, there goes our friendship." Am I right or am I right? Now, though, you're the first to "Like" their Facebook announcement and marvel at the beauty of their love. Maybe.
11. Have a signature aftershave
Aftershave is one of those things you can never really buy for yourself. It's a birthday present from your mum or a Christmas gift from your godmother. Maybe you'll get some for Valentine's Day. Make it easier for everyone, then: stick to one scent.
12. Glamp it up at festivals
Sharing a small tent for five days with nothing but baby wipes to cleanse you may have been OK when you were younger, but now, now you want more from you festivalling experience. The answer is simple: glamping. Clean toilets, nice shower in the morning, spacious living quarters: yep, that's the way to do it.
13. How to drink the whole day
If there's one thing the quarter-life onslaught of weddings teaches, it's how to start drinking at midday and carry on going until long after dark. No 30-year-old, then, should ever get so blindingly drunk that he has to go home before dinner is served.
14. Alfred Hitchcock's back catalogue
It should be made a law that everyone watch Alfred 'The Master of Suspense' Hitchcock's entire oeuvre by the time they reach 30. OK, maybe not all his work – there are 52 surviving films – but certainly Vertigo, North by Northwest, Rear Window, Psycho and Strangers on a Train. Each and every one is a ripping yarn that will provide you with ample input should the 'what's the best film ever made' conversation come up in the pub.
15. What happens in the bedroom stays in the bedroom
Maybe there was a time when you'd regale your friends down the pub with stories of your glorious sexcapades, rejoicing in every salacious detail possible. Not anymore. By the time you're 30, almost anyone you share an intimate moment with stands a chance of becoming your lifelong partner. And the last thing you want is for your mates to know about the bedroom predilections of your own wife.

Three girlfriends turn up at airport to confront boyfriend
Anything to declare? Three girlfriends turn up at airport to confront boyfriend, 20, after discovering he cheated on them all ... so he fled with his granny
A Level student Becky Connery, 17, was in love with Charlie Fisher, 20
Then she discovered the supermarket worker was seeing another girl, Lizzie
They then discovered their boyfriend, from Hatfield, had yet another woman
All three, from Hertfordshire, made contact over Twitter and Facebook
They met and decided to confront him at Luton Airport when he got home
Mr Fisher came out of customs to see all three shouting 'Liar, liar' at him
He fled with his grandmother as girls berated him for stringing them along
Becky says: 'It's not the 16th century any more - women won't take this'
A supermarket assistant who had three girlfriends at the same time was confronted by all of them when he flew home from holiday.
Charlie Fisher, 20, had been stringing along Becky Connery, 17, Lizzie Leeland-Cunningham, 19, and another girl, who does not wish to be named, for more than six months without any of them finding out about each other.
But when he went away on holiday, Becky discovered he was cheating on her with both Lizzie and the other girl, who is 20, so they came up with the idea of humiliating him at the airport when he got home.
The Iceland worker from Hatfield Garden Village, Hertfordshire, walked through arrivals onto Luton Airport's main concourse to be confronted by all three girls shouting 'Liar, liar' at him before he fled with his grandmother.
Revenge best served cold: Becky Connery, 17, left, Lizzie Leeland-Cunningham, 20, centre, and the third girl went to Luton Airport, left, were all going out with supermarket worker, Charlie Fisher, 20
Today Becky, an A Level student from Welwyn Garden City, told how she found out that the man she was in love with was cheating on her - and how she and his other girlfriends decided to have the last laugh.
She told MailOnline: 'I'd known Charlie for three years but started seeing him in March, and early on we had the conversation that we weren't seeing anyone else, that we were exclusive.
'I was in love with him, and he said he was in love with me, but I had my suspicions from the start.
'He was very protective of his phone, he wouldn't let me put pictures of me and him on social networks, he deleted comments I made about us - looking back, he was very shady.'
Becky, who said Mr Fisher was 'very clever with words', was at his house the night before he flew on holiday when she picked up his phone and saw a message from a girl saying 'I will meet you later'.
It instantly made her suspicious as she said he'd asked her to go home early that night as he had to finish his packing.
Becky, who works part-time as a hairdresser when she's not studying, said: 'Charlie caught me and we had a row - I asked who this girl was and he said she was just a friend.'
Mr Fisher, pictured with Becky earlier this year, used excuses about seeing family and friends to juggle girls
The next day, after Mr Fisher had flown off on holiday to see family in Germany, Becky found the girl, who lives in Hatfield but does not want to be named, on Twitter and sent her a message.
Becky said: 'I told her we were both seeing the same person and she wasn't surprised - she had been with him since January, and had always had her suspicions'
The two girls then met and discovered there was a third girl, Lizzie Leeland-Cunningham, 19, who lives in Hatfield, and made contact with her through Facebook. Lizzie, a bar supervisor, had been dating Mr Fisher since meeting him on Facebook in April.
She said: 'He was a real charmer and had a real way with words - he knew how to say the right thing at the right time.
'But what I didn't realise was that when he was going off to see his friend 'Chris', he was actually seeing one of the other girls. He did it to them, too, saying he was going to see 'Harry' when he was seeing me.
The three women Mr Fisher was seeing have now become firm friends - and say they're glad he's gone
The girls met in the pub to compare notes, and discovered he had been using excuses he was seeing friends or family when he was actually seeing one of them.
Lizzie said: 'I suggested as a joke that we should all go to the airport to meet him. The other two said "Yes, good idea" straightaway, so we met on Saturday morning and went to the airport together.'
As Mr Fisher came out through customs, all three girls called his name.
Becky said: 'He froze and looked at us. He said: "Why are you here? Why would you do this?"
'We were like "Are you joking?"
'I said to him: "I can't believe how you could be like this for seven months."'
Lizzie said: 'He came out of customs and saw all of us and his face just dropped. We said we wanted to talk to him, and he said "Can't I talk to you later?" and we said no, we wanted to talk to him now.
He came out of customs and saw all three of us and his face just dropped
'I said to him "Don't you have anything to say to us?"'.
Mr Fisher headed towards the car park with his grandmother, who had come to collect him, but the girls continued to berate him, stopping only to explain what their grievance was to his grandmother.
'She just shrugged and said "OK" when we told her why we were angry', Becky said.
Becky put a picture of the girls at the airport on Twitter, with the caption: 'Just been at the airport to meet my cheating boyfriend...' and was celebrated as a hero by Twitter users, who said: 'This is awesome - you go, girl.'
Now the girls, who say they're happy to have ousted him from their lives, have forged firm friendships with each other.
'They're great - I'm seeing both of them for nights out soon,' said Becky. 'We can't think what we saw in Charlie in the first place.
'I'm so glad we confronted him - it's not the 16th century any more - girls don't have to put up with this.'
Mr Fisher did not reply to MailOnline's request for a comment today.

'Vag1na-like': New Colombian women's cycling team kit causes controversy
This weekend the Colombian women's cycling team revealed their new kit - and a bit more than they bargained for. Radhika Sanghani reports
Colombia's women's cycling team in their unfortunate uniform Photo: TWITTER/ULTIMO_KM1
Everyone is talking about Colombia’s women’s cycling team. But not for their skill - for their sports kit.
The new uniform, which the team wore for the first time this weekend during the Tour of Tuscany, is bright red, yellow and white, with a Unclad-coloured lower torso.
It may sound like a clash of colours, but the outfit is guilty of a far more serious fashion faux pas, as these pictures show.
Simply, the flesh-coloured design suggests the kit has a cut-away area, where their knickers should be.
In some images posted on Twitter, the apparent Unclothedness is emphasised more by bad lighting.
It has led to comments such as “Colombia's women's cycling jerseys are unintentionally womanliness-like” and “Worst Uniform Ever!”.
The team is backed by Colombia’s ministry of sport and is sponsored by the capital city of Bogota.
But who had the idea for these ill-thought through uniforms is still a mystery.
SuperHit or BigMiss?

That is what is killing this generation.
We are blessed with sharp kids in this generation but what do we feed them with? Over-pampering...
I bet your husband is like me that takes every little time to look at other discoveries and looking at other kids making headway in scientific findings..... If you ask the parents of such kids, they will tell you that those kids were made to kiss their studies always ever since they could grab something...
See, its for the better o jare... Dont you want your kid to be the first Nigerian solving calculus at 5Yrs? I want am o!

Coldfeet: As a blogger you say? So you are a blogger? And you don't have answers to all the questions you were asking earlier? Go to that Chris Oyakhilome for help on how to reprogramme your senses!!!! You lack even the commonest form of it. A simple click of the mouse would have given you the answers you needed to know about her. But I've guessed you know this answers but you really just want to give yourself the satisfaction of running someone down. Monalisa is 40years old! A divorcee! And a mother! She is also a great human being!!!! Go hang yourself if it pains you so.
So because I made mention of blogging skills portrays me to be a blogger ehn.... small brain like urs... If you need to know, I am a Programmer + ID + Working as a Systems Analyst.
Madam Coldfeet, I still stand on my block statements. A simple click of the mouse cant give answers to questions but looking at the right places ( )...
See... I have no time for sh!ts mhen... Going back to 8 Ball Pool on Facebook Games to cool my head.

shindarayo: men like u is d reason she chose to b single.tinkn a woman life shld b centeref around a man.mscewww
Ladies like you chose to be a single mother... Thinking marriage has nothing to offer other than anti-feminism.
|Celebrities / Re: Actress Monalisa Chinda Celebrates Her 40th Birthday by ledafaze(m): 12:40pm On Sep 15|
You lack common sense.... It is a general question and If you read well, it says "NO to any question"...
Read na.... Read and conprehend.
|Celebrities / Re: Actress Monalisa Chinda Celebrates Her 40th Birthday by ledafaze(m): 12:38pm On Sep 15|
Coldfeet: Further display of ignorance.
If you are wisely learned, you will and should know that the best pictures should portray much about the person. As a blogger, they would want to take the best moments and if her home/marriage is homely and sweet enough, you should have seen her husband beside her.
So she is not married.
Be wise enough and read from pictures not from words.... Chris Oyakhilome and co should have given you some insights.
|Celebrities / Re: Actress Monalisa Chinda Celebrates Her 40th Birthday by ledafaze(m): 11:45am On Sep 15|
Coldfeet: Who told you she took pictures alone? Or do you think these are all the pics from her birthday party? As for those questions you posed up their why not use google to school your self better about her before displaying your ignorance online for the world to see go and marry her nah since you and lesbianboy are having sleepless nights over her marital status nonsense.
I cant laugh... U need a guy... I can see why its paining you so much... hahahahaha

Look at the structure of the statement... Very political.
From what we have below, they are playing politics saying they appreciate their services and can still carry on but they dont like this one... where d money dey come before? No be from them pocket?
They are just deceiving themselves, they used INEC to create a rule that no Political Campaign + Adverts till some certain time but they can set up one other organisation to carry out the stuff on their behalf in as much as it is not from the party or person involved....
Well, I pray they change the rule to cover every advert whatsoever and any violators should be jailed
