How Stuff Works
Curiosity may have killed the cat, but along the way, it became the inspiration for this website, designed with the obsessively inquisitive in mind. Whether you’re looking to unlock the mysteries of fireworks or FireWire, there’s a good chance you’ll find your answers here. And futurists should appreciate the technical prognostications in the ”How Stuff Will Work” section. The site’s anything-for-dummies format and (sometimes too) elaborate descriptions are guaranteed to make learning ”How Car Engines Work” easier, and less messy, than a couple hours under the hood. Perfect for anyone looking to wow ’em at the coffee machine (see ”How Coffee Makers Work”).
