So I thought it was about time I posted another one. This time, the list’s a lot less war-focused. I particularly like number 42, though the Wikipedia article doesn’t make it very clear that the graffiti appeared a multitude of times in different places and the writer has never been identified.

How to Forecast Weather | Ever wondered how to forecast the weather without actually using instruments? Check the Clouds: Clouds can tell us a lot about the weather. For example, they can tell us if it’s going to be warmer on a particular night by simply being there. Check the Humidity: If you’re one of those people whose hair gets all curly when it gets really humid out, you know exactly what this is about. Check the Animals: Birds only fly in the sky when they expect fair weather ahead. Look at the Rainbow (but only in the west) and look for a Red Sky: If you see one in the west, it means a major storm front is coming. Check the Air: If it smells like a compost heap, expect some rain soon. Check the Moon: Seen any red moons lately? Check the Wind: If you can tell which way the wind is blowing, you can tell if there is a storm approaching. A Few More Ideas: Make a campfire – If the smoke goes straight up, clear skies ahead. Check the grass – if it’s wet and dewy, that means it probably won’t rain.

Numbers Near Multiples Of Ten It's fairly easy to multiply two numbers that are close to the same multiple of 10. The algorithm for doing it is called “Nikhilam Navatascaramam Dasata.” It is part of a system of algorithms and mnemonics to remember them, collectively known as “Vedic Math”, that was developed by Jagadguru Swami Bharati Krishna Tirthaji Maharaj in the early 20th century. The easiest way to explain the algorithm is to give examples, and explain the algorithm along the way. 7 x 8 First find a suitable “base”. base 10 7 | -3 x 8 | -2 Multiply the differences. -3 x -2 = 6. base 10 7 | -3 x 8 | -2 ________ | 6 Now add the difference between the one number to be multiplied and 10, to the other number to be multiplied. Put the result on the left side of the answer: base 10 7 | -3 x 8 | -2 ________ 5 | 6 7 x 8 = 56 Now let's try it with significantly bigger numbers, to see why this is such an advantage. 98 x 89 ____ Since both numbers are close to 100, we will use 100 as our base. 10200 + (-08) = 10192 104 x 98 = 10192
