Can you change a light bulb?

posted by Suzanne And Greg In The Morning -

A new UK survey, which could easily translate here finds that about 20% of people have no idea how to change a light bulb. If that’s not crazy enough, another 20% don’t know how to boil an egg either.

Those aren’t the only household tasks that people are clueless about, only 50% of people know how to get stains out from their clothes or a carpet, while only 37% can change a flat tire. Meanwhile, about 31% of people say they can’t cook a meal without a recipe, while 34% of people admit they can’t read a map, 35% can’t sew on a button and 43% don’t know how to change a diaper.

So, how do all of these people get by doing these things? Well, 50% of people say they’ve learned their DIY skills by trial and error, while 45% of adults have learned to do things from their dads, and 35% learned from their moms. Of course, the computer is also pretty helpful, with about 40% of those under 25 saying they learned their skills thanks to the Internet.
