You guys need to revisit old subjects more often. These Wikihow episodes are great.

I'll use this as an excuse to submit the Yahoo Answers document that I've been piecing together. It's been way too long since the last one and there are so many fantastic things on there.

I would love another Yahoo Answers episode.

Or Justrage.com, for that matter.

I could personally go for another food episode. That ramen sandwich bit at the beginning of this one was fantastic.

Oh, also, I know what the "elephant toothpaste" mentioned in the list of titles at the end is! It's a neat little demonstration they do in a lot of science classes:

Adam was really on point last episode talking about how so many of these are written like a preteen's thoughts.  I could have guessed maybe the topics were being suggested by unintelligent people, and even kids too, but these aren't written like someone with a competent mind sat down with a kid's suggestion and tried to humor the kid.  These articles are definitely written by kids, because they've got the same garbage logic kids have.

Why are all these ten year olds writing Wikihow articles?  Is it really popular?  Is it part of some Internet Fluency curriculum?

That 'how to go upstairs in the dark' article was written in a way that matched almost word for word how I felt about going into the basement at night when I was twelve.  And the 'how to get your cat back from a child' seemed like it was written by a kid, then someone else went back over it and tried to edit it to change the tone, but didn't change any of the actual content.

That makes sense for the more innocuously insane articles and makes that ramen noodle sandwich monstrosity actually sort of ... understandable, almost?

But if you view it in that light, it makes the articles about diapers and women peeing themselves even more horrifying.

This does not make the episode itself any less hilarious. I was laughing so hard listening to this one the first time that I'm listening to it again now at work, because I know I missed stuff, especially during the Great Intervention.

Thinking about it, the muttering under your breath tactic might have worked on me once. As a result I got trapped into an hour an a half conversation about anime and new-age bullshit. On the other hand, I should have had the foresight not to interact with the girl muttering "kawaii~" to the rabbits in my school's petting zoo.

High School teaches you some hard lessons I guess.

It isn't the high school's really, but it was adjacent to it. The whole place used to be an agricultural school, and still after it ceased being one, all the students had to work a bit in one of agricultural fields, and one of them for some reason was a shitty petting zoo, which was the best pick out of the options available.

The only pet-able animals we had there were goats and rabbits, but I guess you could gawk at a parrot and get spit on by a camel or bit by a duck. We also for some inexplicable reason had a Mara

Why didn't your school have a petting zoo?

And to tie this back into the topic of the thread, Wikihow can teach you how to start your own petting zoo( or a farm?):
