Got them covered except for retouching digital photos and I've never "framed a wall" although I don't think it's that difficult.

Eh, I think I can manage about 11 of them.... (and there's a few on there I know I'll never learn -- nor need to learn -- how to do... like 19! )

That's quite the list. Everything from mixing concrete to backing up your PC.

22 out of 25. Don't know sh$%%% about wireless networking (although my wife is making me learn), Don't like playing with electricity or outlets of any kind for that matter, and if I did CPR on you I would either kill you or (if female) end up letting you die while I played with your breasts...
