Amusing Wiki-hows

Have you ever simply gone on Wiki-how and typed in things for the fun of it? If you haven't I suggest you open another tab and go crazy. It's nearly as amusing as urban dictionary. Half of the time, I'm not sure if the articles are serious or just people trolling for the heck of it. It just seems like a lot of effort to write a whole article if you aren't being serious....but then again some people have no lives outside of the internet. (Guilty as charged) Here are my absolute favorites.

For those looking how to completely ignore their own personality and just adopt a new one.

  1. It's always a good idea to go after celebrities. Apparently all you have to do to be Robert Smith is read read read, write write write, and listen to The Cure.
  2. Learn to act like Jareth The Goblin King. With helpful tips like learn to ballroom dance, sing, and juggle balls. *snort*
  3. How to be a "Tough Guy". Oh dear. This had me giggling the whole way through. (Gentlemen out there I assure you there are many women attracted to feminine guys ;))
  4.  Want to be a Slytherin? Practice your cold stare, gather a few henchmen, and dress in a "sinister" fashion. (I find this mildly offensive...I'm a Slytherin!) 

Then we attempt to change our species.

    1.  The article on how to be a werewolf tells you to "move as if hunting". I'm fairly certain people will be put off by that. The video at the bottom is highly....informative.
    2. This article on how to look and act like a Twilight vampire cracks me up every time.

      Louis and Lestat don't approve.

       And finally have a a few ridiculous ones that shouldn't even exist.

      1. How to count sheep. It takes eight steps for them to explain to imagine sheep...and then count them.
      2. How to take a shower. I'm pretty sure if you're old enough to look up and read this article then you would have figured out long ago how to take a shower.
      3. How to deal with having a big butt as a teenager. ....come again?
      4. The absolute best one is how to fight like the apes in Planet of the Apes. I especially like the warning further down which says "Do not try ape style against actual apes or gorillas or they will tear your arms off."

       Oh people of the world, sometimes I don't know whether to laugh or cry when I see things like this....


      1. It's all very funny to read, but I wonder if anyone actually attempted any of these how-to's!
        That'd be something to witness lol.

        1. I'd like to know what kind of person wants to even try them in the first place ^^

      2. I remember seeing one on how to eat ice cream (15 steps WITH PICTURES!)...if you need someone to explain it to you then you don't deserve ice cream :3
