After my high school graduation and just before I ventured north on the Interstate-5 corridor to Western, I was given a how-to book from a friend of mine. It was a how-to survive college handbook, conveniently titled “Your Guide to College Survival.”

The tips on how to prevent a hangover, how to slyly prank noisy neighbors and how to turn old milk crates into comfortable living room furniture mesmerized me.

It was one day when I was following the book’s advice by turning old CDs into decorative wall art, when I realized how much I would be lost without those instructions. Would I have made it through college as gracefully without this handbook? And that’s when it hit me: Life would be so much easier if it came with a set of how-to’s

That’s where this issue of Klipsun comes in. Whether you’ve always had an itch to try brewing your own beer, or you’ve always wanted to learn how to solve that Rubik’s cube you’ve had since you were little, you’ll find the answers here. It’s time to take the cube off that dusty shelf and try your hand at it.

In this issue, you’ll read about how to tell if someone is lying, how to stick it to the man, how to win a championship and much more. And who knows, maybe you’ll even learn something.
