HOUSTON, TX - Searching for the meaning of life?   Good luck with that!  In the meantime, Google has released the list of the top searched terms for Houston in 2014, which includes Robin Williams, World Cup, Ebola, iPhone 6 and Joan Rivers.

The internet giant has also broken down the data into categories, and the "How to…?" searches is one of them.  The list encompasses how to knit, how to coupon, who to fish, how to exfoliate -which is the removal of the oldest dead skin-, how to drive, how to cook, how to freestyle, how to pray, how to whistle and how to dance.

"I look for how to fix my lawn mower when it won't start" - said Susan Gerland, walking near Toyota Center.   "How to make an American-style breakfast" - told international student Zhengsi Chang.   "How to repair furniture after my dog bit it" - laughed Alejandro Silva, while taking his dog for a walk around Discovery Green.
