We all go to Google for answers and info how to get things done. But the most Googled 'How To' in New York is a little odd.

The 'How To' question residents of the Empire State Google the most?

"How to explain mansplaining." 

I know what you're thinking. 'Whaaaaat????' But, according to Estately that is what New Yorkers are searching for the most when the search for 'How To. on Google.

So, to answer your first question - what is 'mansplaining?' Well, according to Google the definition of mansplaining is:

'explain (something) to someone, typically a woman, in a manner regarded as condescending or patronizing.'

From what I gather here, were are looking for ways to explain a way of explaining. Very odd, right? But we do know the tone they are talking about here. Apparantly we just need help helping others recognize it. I am so confused.

Some of the other things we Google 'How To' are much funnier, including:

  • How to give yourself a hickey?
  • How to live forever?
  • How to be good in bed?
  • How to stop being a loser?
