Things to Do on WonderHowTo (03/21 - 03/27)

WonderHowTo is made up of niche communities called Worlds. If you've yet to join one (or create your own), get a taste below of what's going on in the community. Check in every Wednesday for a roundup of new activities and projects.

Thanks to all of our active moderators and contributors from this past week: Christopher VouteJT Newsome, Silverbug12, Leinad 0716, and K. Met. If you want to see your name listed here, then STOP LURKING and join in!

WonderHowTo is a community effort, and the site belongs to all of you. So, the more knowledge we can pool together, the more we can learn from each other. Join in. Write a tutorial. Post to a World. We're a curious bunch, and we want to see what you've got to share!

Below, this week's highlights: Survival tips for the zombie apocalypse, miniature robotic minions, a "physical" computer bug, lightsaber Photoshopping, underground grass, and more!
