Even though Google exists, it's still hard out here for a twentysomething trying to get through life. We put off learning stuff moms are amazing at, but it doesn't look like we'll be fully good at taking care of ourselves any time soon. Here are 17 adult skills you might want to pick up…someday.

One of many reasons to get excited for driverless cars.

Wait, you clip the red to the positive and the black to the negative, right?

Apparently it's not as simple as they make it look on House Hunters.

17. How to make friends
