21. How do I get Netflix on the TV?
Good question! There are a couple great ways. First off, you should find out which TV streaming system is best for you. The Roku 3 is really great and very easy to use. You can wirelessly set it up via WiFi! If you don’t have that, a standard $6 Ethernet cord will work.
22. Why is the Internet out?
First of all, check to make sure the modem and router are plugged into the wall, and to each other. Next, check for reported outages. If your entire block has Internet, there may be a larger issue at hand (read: Godzilla.) If that's not it, reset your devices—turning stuff off and back on again actually works for most things.
23. Why is my computer slow?
Oh God, so many reasons. First of all, if you have a ton of tabs open, stop that: opening more than ten tabs in your browser slows down your computer, especially if you have multiple mail accounts open. If you have a lot of programs running (Word, Photoshop, iMovie, etc.) close down the ones you’re not using. Delete temporary files to clear space on your hard drive. If you have harmful malware, there are easy ways to get rid of it. Update your operating system. If you’re on a Mac that’s functioning but struggles, buy ram! It’s easy to install and gives your laptop a second life.
24. How do I get rid of spam?
Ugh, spam. Perhaps the worst of the first-world problems. There’s an easy way to unsubscribe yourself from unwanted email list: It’s called unroll.me and you should just do it.
25. What the heck is Reddit?
Oh man, good question: Reddit is the reason every other website on the Internet exists. Wikipedia puts it wonderfully: “Reddit is an entertainment, social networking, and news website where registered community members can submit content, such as text posts or direct links, making it essentially an online bulletin board system.” So, what’s on Reddit? Everything. Posts where celebrities answer questions, pictures of animals, long threads about politics, DIY projects, jokes, queries, conversation, and—of course—naked bodies. It's the "front page of the Internet" after all.
Jeremy Glass is a writer for Supercompressor and crowdsourced some of these questions, but just remembered what his parents asked him for the rest.
