I know Static methods can be accessed by any class.... but I can't wrap my head around this.



This method appears usually on a client class. Can it be called?

Yes... use [Classname].man(). Did you make a typo? Should it be main() instead? Why are you worrying about only this static method? Aren't you seeing this method called anywhere in the code?
