Knowledge Is POWER

School takes years to complete and college is more expensive than buying a planet – yes it’s safe to say that when it comes to learning, we like it fast and free! On that note, we’ve searched the deepest, darkest corners of the internet (YouTube) in order to find you six videos that will teach you an awesome new skill or talent, all in one go!


1.  Learn How To Moonwalk like MJ himself

Everyone in the world has tried to pull off this move and everyone in the world has failed. Now, you can finally learn how to do it LEGIT:



2. Learn How To Solve A Rubik’s Cube In Under a Minute

Now look, we all think we’re too cool for Rubik’s Cubes, but deep down it’s always impressive when someone can whip out a Ru’Cube (trademark) and solve it in under ten milliseconds. You would think that would take years, nay, DECADES of training but no! It actually takes about 15 minutes!

And some practice probs.


3. Spin A Pen Around Your Thumb

This is definitely the most useless skill on the list – but don’t pretend you’re not dying to learn how it’s done! Behold:



4. How To Tie A Bowtie

This is way more useful than you may think. Even if you aren’t a bowtie boi / bowtie babe, you’ll almost certainly know someone or eventually meet someone who wants to wear a bowtie, but doesn’t know how to tie one. That’s when you can step in and wow them! Never forget what Plato once said: “the best reason to learn things is for sick bragging rights.”

This video also has the bonus of being hosted by Jesse Tyler Ferguson from Modern Family, because the world makes absolutely no sense whatsoever and we should just embrace that:



4. Learn How To Win Rock Paper Scissors Every Time

It’s not cheating if you learned it on YouTube.



5. Learn How To Do The Robot Properly

Couple this with the Moonwalk and there will be no wedding dance-floor you won’t be able to dominate.



6. Learn The Whip & Nae Nae … From Silento Himself

In a video that will almost certainly make you say: “what is this?” And “I don’t understand why this exists”, Whip-singer Silentó decides to take you through the intricate steps of his world famous dance craze.

If we can conclude anything from this video it’s that more famous people need to be doing this, right away.


So there you have it! Six brand new skills, that didn’t cost you a penny to learn! The internet truly is a big pile of magic.
