Multiplication Trick

Japanese school children learn to multiply with lines, or in other words, a visual technique where you draw lines and count the intersections. The infographic above shows the basic method behind this method, and it involves drawing lines on the diagonal to represent the numbers of the first number to multiply, and then crossing those with the other number's lines. Next, you add up the intersections for each area, and you have the correct total. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

Borderline Genius Inventions

People who prefer soda from cans probably would love to have a version that can be resealed, or at least closed up for safe transport. The simple design you see above just adds another layer in-between the liquid and top. On a similar food-related note, making breakfast would be so much more enjoyable for geeks if there was a lightsaber-inspired knife that actually toasted bread as you sliced it.

Flipped Iceberg

Photographer Alex Cornell managed to captured these mind-boggling pictures of a flipped iceberg during an expedition to Antarctica last month. The translucent blue underside, completely free of snow and debris, is majestic to say the least. Science World says that almost 90% of an iceberg is beneath the surface, making flips extremely rare. Blue icebergs develop from older, deep glaciers which have undergone tremendous pressure experienced for hundreds of years. The process releases and eliminates air that was originally caught in the ice by falling snow. Therefore, icebergs that have been formed from older glaciers have little internal air or reflective surfaces. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

Funny Creative Home Ideas

It's never too early (or late) to start remodeling your living space, and sometimes, the things you want just can't be found in stores. For example, an "In Case of Zombies" shed decal might not be readily available at your local department store, but Etsy and other online shops just might carry it. Or, just finding a new creative way to organize your cables in microchip fashion - plus the wall-mounted PlayStation isn't such a bad idea either.

Waterphone

Invented and developed by Richard Waters, a waterphoneis a type of inharmonic acoustic percussion instrument consisting of a water-filled resonator bowl with a cylindrical neck and bronze rods of different lengths and diameters around the rim of the bowl. It produces a vibrant ethereal sound that horror movie fans are probably all familiar with and can also be heard in record albums and live performances. The sound of the waterphone is often used to evoke mystery and suspense. A superball mallet has become the prime way of drumming the waterphone.
