The Internet is full of answers to your questions and solutions to your problems. Seriously. Look no further than domain names like, Answers.Yahoo and for evidence of that. Shockingly, however, not all of these supposed life hacks are actually correct. In fact, it’s quite possible that the only things the Internet has more of than good advice and porn are bad advice and outright lies. Luckily, The Fault In Our Stars author John Green is the type of man who likes separating fact from fiction.

So, on this week’s episode of Mental Floss, the writer decided to put thirty of the Internet’s most popular life hacks to the test to see whether or not there’s actually anything more than hot air to them. From makeshift Snuggies involving backwards bathrobes to plastic cup lids making convenient coasters to tennis balls helping to open stuck lids, Green spread his net pretty wide in terms of subject matter, and upon further review, about half of the little tricks actually worked. Even better, one of the tricks involving circular cheese placement on a grilled cheese sandwich, is a complete game changer I will now make a regular part of my life.

Over at Mental Floss, the powers that be aren’t typically big fans of sequels, but this particular entry is in fact a revisit of a concept put together back in October. During that video, Green also tested out thirty of the Internet’s supposed life hacks, and in case you were wondering, yes, it is as interesting and worth your time as the one embedded above.

So, here it is…
