Learn all sorts of things that make you stand out in a way that makes people go "that's cool but why do you know that?" We're why! This is a place like a how to guide to teach or learn how to do everyday cool things. Like solving a Rubix Cube, pen spinning, or how to roll a quarter through your fingers.


  1. Don't debate if a post is truly "useless." Posts should fall under these guidelines: -It kills time -It is not very commonly known -If seen by others, it would make them go "Wow, I can't do that and you can! How cool!"

  2. If you are unsure if the link is "useful" (ie: how to beatbox, how to pick a lock) go ahead and post it. DO NOT DEBATE IF IT IS USELESS OR NOT! There is a hypothetical situation for everything.

  3. Please label posts from other other reddits. (ie: X-post /r/howto).

  4. If you report a link, send a message to the mods as to why you reported it

  5. If you post a meme, it will be removed by the moderators. If you see one, report it for us.

  6. Have a video of something you think is a useless talent, but it's not an instructional video on how to do it? Take it over to /r/timeonhand

  7. No origami! Any and all origami posts should be directed to /r/origami, if there's one.

  8. Any post about how to be a karmawhore is a bannable offense. We get enough of these everyday and we would very much like if we never saw it again.

If you think your submission got caught in the spam filter, message the mods! We'd be happy to fix it.

I like to do a special thing for this subreddit to our true fans. If I happen to notice you trying to promote our subreddit elsewhere on Reddit, You may be awarded the high honor of the "Prominent Promoter" flair. Only three redditors have it currently and it should be considered a very high honor.

On June 23rd, 2012 we were named SUBREDDIT OF THE DAY!
