Life Suggestions

How many times have you gone to and entered in a random question. Often we treat the Google search engine as if it were the Deep Thought from Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Deep Thought was commissioned to answer the question, "what is the meaning of life." The numerical result was of course, 42. Before we even get to the answer that we seek our Google search query, we are given the answer to a different question in the form of search suggestions. Before typing your question, as if being interrupted by a crowd of midgets on sugar highs, suggestions for the top 10 popular (but filtered I'm sure) searches appear.

These search suggestions are a mirror into our species. A compiled and condensed list of the most common burning questions on our collective minds. We may not like or even agree with what's there but there's no denying it. Especially when scanning the suggestions you find yourself wondering what the answers to some of them are and you're fighting the urge to search.

So here's my challenge, can you complete (and thus answer) all of the top 10 how-to questions of the human race at the same time? Now where's my rubix cube and my dragon.
