Have you ever had trouble remembering important things that you feel like you should know?
Do you learn best when there are clever visual aids?
Then the Cool Guides subreddit might be for you!
The guides people post run the gamut from educational to entertaining, so you’re sure to find something that interests you.
And as head moderator Dadschool told Bored Panda, you’re welcome to post your own:
Just remember to avoid reposts, so have a look through the newest posts. We do try to maintain some content diversity, so don’t upload all ten of your favorite ab workout guides at once. If you have the source, be a buddy and list that too in the comments or title to give credit where it’s due!
So, without further ado, here are 13 of the best cool guides out there, from the factual to the funny and a little in between.
1. Gal code hand signals for a crowded room
These are ingenious, and college campuses should teach them.
2. Heimlich for dogs
I’m not kidding when I say I’m going to print this for my fridge.
My dog is what the vet calls “not a dainty eater.”
3. Open access to research
This should be taught in every library skills course.
4. How to make a paper snowflake
I KNOW RIGHT?
The only thing missing is how to actually fold the paper.
I guess that part everyone but me already knows?
5. The art of a properly made sofa fort
One question: Why did I not learn this in Girl Scouts?
6. Easy way to remember Morse Code
In case you aren’t happy with only knowing SOS.
7. How to stop a panic attack
These are amazing tips for anyone.
Just a little something for the upcoming holiday season. from coolguides
8. Survival skills: when you encounter a bear
Keep this one handy for your next hiking trip.
9. Survival skills: when you encounter a waterfall
Tape this one in your kayak.
10. Survival skills: when you encounter a tattoo artist
Or you just want to show people how tough you are.
11. Survival skills: when you encounter an art snob
Just kidding. For art snobs you smile and nod.
This one is pretty funny though.
12. How to describe your pain level
When you’re NOT getting a tattoo.
13. When you can’t keep your animals straight
Or you need inspiration on naming something inaccurately.
These are all my favorites, and I hope that you enjoyed them too. (And maybe even learned something!)
