How to Unlock Your Car's Steering Wheel

Par Elizabeth Yuko

Maybe you’re someone who is familiar with every last detail and feature of your car, taking pride in knowing everything your machine can do. Or maybe it’s just a thing that gets you from A to B, and each time you get in, you pop the key in the ignition, turn it, and hope for the best (unless you have one that starts…

Par Elizabeth Yuko

Do you like candy? Do you have opinions about it? Are you looking for a job? If you answered “yes” to all three questions, you may be interested in learning more about a position that will pay you cash money to taste-test candy.

So You Want to Learn to Play the Drums

Par Sam Blum

So you want to learn to play the drums. Thrash the skins. Hit some wooden circles with sticks in the pursuit of that sweet, sweet rhythm. In this endeavor I salute you, especially if you’re a kid living at home with your parents (they will learn to deal with the noise).

When Do You Actually Need a Protein Shake?

Par Beth Skwarecki on Vitals, shared by Beth Skwarecki to Lifehacker

I love my protein shaker. (I’ve even been known to mix cocktails in it.) It’s a staple in my meathead life because I find protein shakes help me achieve my muscle-building goals. But a protein shake isn’t an automatic necessity if you’re lifting weights, so let’s talk about how you know whether you actually need one.

How to DIY a Home Recording Studio

Par Aisha Jordan

If you are a podcaster, musician, or actor working during the pandemic, having an in-home recording studio of some kind could be essential to your business. This year, the majority of recording work has moved into our homes, but often still demands professional-grade sound. Unfortunately, creating a home studio is not…

Don't Tweet the 'Profound' Things Your Kids Say

Par Joel Cunningham on Offspring, shared by Joel Cunningham to Lifehacker

You can understand the impulse that led Chelsea Clinton to tweet a “cute” anecdote about her 4-year-old son celebrating this week’s inauguration of Joe Biden. Certainly Hillary Clinton’s daughter has plenty of reasons to mark the ignominious exit from politics of the man who spent half a decade vilifying her mother…

I love trying new cocktails, and nothing annoys me more acutely than almost having all the ingredients I need to make one of them. Sadly, this is the exact situation I found myself in this week when my friend Dan sent me a recipe for the Yellow Parrot, an extremely booze-heavy (and not very cost-effective)…

Get a One-Way Car Rental for $9.99 a Day

Par Mike Winters on Two Cents, shared by Mike Winters to Lifehacker

Apparently Hertz has too many rental cars sitting idle on the west coast, so they’re offering a new deal for one-way trips across the country, for as little as $9.99 per day. That’s at least on par with the cost of a flight or train, and it offers an alternative way to travel during the pandemic.

Don't Feel Guilty About Accepting a COVID Shot

Par Beth Skwarecki on Vitals, shared by Beth Skwarecki to Lifehacker

For all the money and elbow grease that was poured into developing the COVID-19 vaccines, you’d think that vaccinating people is a top-priority project. But precious few resources have been given to any efforts to actually get the vaccine into people’s arms. We don’t have an organized, efficient system. Instead we…

You Should Add Baking Soda to Your Ground Meat

Par Claire Lower on Skillet, shared by Claire Lower to Lifehacker

Aesthetically speaking, ground meat is not the most pleasing of animal proteins. When raw, it is all squishy and speckled, and more often than not, cooking it just transforms the pink, soft stuff into grey, nubby stuff.

The Out-of-Touch Adults' Guide To Kid Culture: Kids Are Grownups

Par Stephen Johnson

The hot trend to watch for in 2021 is maturity, as grown-ass adults are in charge of the country again and youth culture is noticing. Nonsense, shenanigans, jack-a-napes, and malarkey won’t be tolerated, so the hottest young celebrity is a poet, the fieriest thing streaming is a throwback to the 1950s, the meme of the…

Par Mike Winters on Two Cents, shared by Mike Winters to Lifehacker

Considering the average hourly rate for a lawyer in America ranges between $100-$300, many people can’t afford to hire an attorney.

You Should Buy Your Kid a Typewriter

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

When I put out a call for freelance pitches last week, I also asked readers to send me post or topic ideas they’d like to read—even if they didn’t want to write them themselves. Which is how it came to be that a 53-year-old newspaper editor named Andy contacted me with an undeniably good idea: Parents should buy their…

How to Remove Bernie's Background and Paste Him Anywhere

Par David Murphy

If you want to contribute to the latest Bernie photo craze before the meme plays itself out—which will probably be sometime around the end of the week—it’s not that hard to cut out Bernie-Sanders-on-a-chair and splice him into whatever image you want.

Do You Need to Curb Your TV Addiction?

Par Aisha Jordan

Television studios and streaming services release content at a high rate, and the more that becomes available, the more TV we’re all watching.

I'm Food Journalist Alicia Kennedy, and This Is How I Eat

Par Claire Lower on Skillet, shared by Claire Lower to Lifehacker

Why Are My Feet Always So Cold?

Par Sam Blum

I wear fuzzy slippers around the house, not because I think myself fancy, or even because prefer the feeling of soft, fuzzy fur to bare feet. I do this because my feet are always—and I mean always—freezing. In the winter, I stuff toe warmers into my thickest socks, only to find that my feet are still frigid, even with …

Watch Reruns of ‘90s Cartoons While You Work

Par Aisha Jordan

All those ‘90s babies grew up with the best childhood cartoons—shows so beloved they continue to remake them to this day.

Par Brendan Hesse

Google will start disabling Google Messages from working on “uncertified” Android devices starting March 31. This change shouldn’t affect most of you, but it does beg the question: What exactly is an “uncertified” Android device, and how do you make sure you’re not using one?

How to Avoid Getting More Pessimistic With Each Passing Year

Par Elizabeth Yuko

Pessimism gets a bad rap, but in reality, the negative-leaning outlook can serve some important functions.

These Books Will Get Your Kids Out of Their Reading Rut

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

You’ve read Goodnight Moon approximately 4,289 times. You’re not crazy about The Giving Tree’s underlying message.
