How to regain control of a spooked camel. There really is a guide to everything on the internet, and it doesn't have to be computer-related either. How to get out of work. How to be a girl (for boys), and of course how to be a boy (for girls). How to disassemble a toilet. How to install a new toilet. How to display civic pride without sounding lame. How to set up a threesome (good luck with that one). How to kill your friend and steal his girlfriend. How to survive a long fall (presumably in case one of your friends throws you out of the window so he can get it on with your woman).

Now we can set up the threesome.

A lot of this stuff is really bad advice.

Is there an internet how-to about removing corrupt politicians from office?

Hmm... I should have looked for the howto tag. Didn't see the September entry.

There used to be a HOWTO HOWTO, but it's been dully renamed "LDP Author Guide".

Geez, two weeks after our Switch Party - and now they tell us how to do it.

C'mon, ladies, take off every zig.
For great justice.

"It is always best not to fall at all." Ha. Advice to live by.

Also, threesomes are so much less exciting than you might think.

The lesbian scenario is a method that works at least 50 percent of the time. I’ve seen it. I know it can be done. If you’re friends with a lesbian, tell them about how you’re trying to create a little sexual excitement in your relationship. Ask them if they’d ever have a threesome. Some have, some haven’t. Ask them if they’d be interested. If they’re your friend or acquaintance, it’s probably a go. No don’t assume that a lesbian is a slut, and that’s why they’re doing it, because it’s quite the opposite. They just seem to understand better than most people that experimenting with your sexual being can be a profound experience, and they’d be willing to help with that.

Um...WHAT? Yes, lesbians just love it when male friends ask them to become human sex toys for them and their girlfriends. OMG BAD ADVICE WTF.

Yeah. As a lesbian, it TOTALLY works fifty percent of the time!

That article should be renamed "how to get your balls smashed in 5 easy steps", because I don't see much good advice there.

S'truth. There are an awful lot of knees and elbows involved. Better to keep it simple.

Please tell me I'm not the only woman who'd get skeeved out if some guy came up to me at a party and said "Hey, come back to my girlfriend's house with me!"

Well, you only need to find one who's not

Huh. Threesomes have been some of the best sex I've ever had. Don't know what you all were doing if it wasn't any fun.
posted by kyrademon at 12:06 PM on November 14, 2006


Sex with one person is complicated enough for me. The one threesome I was in was a bit more confusing than enjoyable.

The "how to get out of work" article forgot the most important tip of all: "Get a government/public sector job, where you cannot be fired for anything short of caving a co-worker's skull in with a shovel, and even then there will be an arbitration meeting which ends with you being sent home for three days - with pay - to think about whether or not you want to keep your job." In that sort of environment, calling in "sick" is a snap...especially if you're hung over and sound legitimately ill.

I've never once heard of that happening. It's always the girl that makes the approach.
