Just Lie About Your GPA

Par Claire Lower

There are two types of people in this world: people who don’t remember their college grade point average, and nerds. I mean, I guess there is a third category of former nerds who are bitter about their GPA and have thus banished it from their consciousness (me).

How to Best Support Someone Based on Their Grief Archetype

Par Elizabeth Yuko

For the most part, our society has a very narrow definition and shallow understanding of grief. We know that when someone close to us dies, we’re supposed to feel sad, spend a few days wearing black and eating casseroles while in mourning, and then resume our normal lives as if nothing happened.

Lie to Your Kids About Their Lies

Par Meghan Moravcik Walbert on Offspring, shared by Meghan Moravcik Walbert to Lifehacker

I don’t usually like to take the easy parenting road by, say, tricking children or lying to them. Also, I don’t think you teach your kids not to do the thing you don’t want them to do by doing that thing yourself. Like, I don’t think yelling at a kid teaches them that yelling isn’t cool. (I’m not saying I never yell;…

How to Make a Fake Facebook Account

Par David Murphy

Creating multiple Facebook accounts was easy back in the day. You might have needed a secondary email from a legitimate educational institution, but that’s typically not difficult to come by—especially if you get a new “alumni” email address tied to a university’s domain upon graduating.

Give a Crappy Handmade Gift for Christmas

Par Beth Skwarecki

There are few gifts more blissful to receive than a lovingly handmade item—maybe a sweater in your exact size and favorite color, knitted by a grandmother who cares for you and wants you to be happy.

Ruin Someone's Day With an Empty Parking Ticket Envelope

Par Joel Cunningham

Nothing upsets the flow of an otherwise good day like walking up to your car and seeing the angry orange hue of a parking ticket envelope stuck under one of your wiper blades.
