Maybe you're an expert Do-It-Yourself (DIY) kind of person. You know, the sort of individual that just has the skill to handle any and all projects. The sort of person who snorts when someone says "I Googled how to do ________." Or, maybe you're like me (and millions of others like me) who head straight for the world's foremost authority on everything to help you when you can't make heads or tails of what you're doing.

Seriously, I have searched all sorts of do it yourself topics on Google, and I can tell you quite honestly that those websites and videos with the step-by-step walkthroughs and instructions have saved the day more times than I can count. Admittedly, my searches are fairly routine; things like computer questions, wiring explanations, assembly help, etc.

That doesn't mean that all do it yourself queries to Google are mundane.

Last week I put up a post on this website that dealt with the things that each state Googles more than any other state (click here to check it out). Today, a look at what DIY questions each state asks more than any other.

From, here are the how-to questions most asked by folks right here in Illinois:

How to jump a car? / How to be a superhero? / How to ask someone to prom? / How to sell Beanie Babies?

I'm hoping the person meant "jump start a car," but you never can tell. Let's have a look at our Midwestern neighbors, and what they need DIY advice on:


How to impeach a governor? / How to farm? / How to retire?


How to screenshot? / How to throw a curveball / How to make Jello shots?


How to vote for Trump? / How to tie dye? / How to be popular? / How to be president? / How to Google something? / How to be different? / How to plan a wedding? / How to be free?
