Happy Fathers Day

Fathers Day is here! That day when children everywhere give their dads one of the following, seemingly interchangeable and revolving, biennial gifts:
  • Cologne
  • A tie, the gaudier the better. Gaudy with Disney characters is a plus.
  • Hand-made ashtrays they made in school, regardless of whether dad smokes (actually, those are kind of cool)
Part of getting the right gift for your dad involves actually knowing him (yes, that means paying attention -- put down the game system). Is he a gear-head? An exercise fan? Sports fan? Geek? Try out this checklist to validate that last possibility.

And be nice to dad today. If you were a seahorse, you would owe him big time.
