I’m the bumble in our home — hanging frames is my job.
And what a pain in the butt. It can be really hard to get them on the hook, and a disaster if you fail.
I can’t wait to try this.
This is from LifeHacker. I love that site, but I have to admit it’s gone from lots of great ideas to fewer as it exhausts the world’s supply of shortcuts. But this is the best one I’ve seen in ages.
FWIW: I like this so much I went and tried it myself. It works fantastically with plain nails, but it isn’t that great with a picture hook. And it does you no good at all if you have one of those teethy things on the back of the frame, instead of a wire.
FWIW: My late mother-in-law was the youngest daughter of a corner grocery store owner. In the New York of the 1930’s and 40’s, there was not an outright ban on margarine (dairy is important in New York, but not dominant). So the rule was that you could sell margarine wholesale, but it couldn’t be colored. Uncolored margarine looks like … Crisco … bright white. So margarine was purchased wholesale in barrels. At the retail level you could either buy it uncolored, or colored with dye packets sent along with the barrel. As a kid, one of my mother-in-laws jobs around the store was to hand mix the dye into the margarine. Not surprisingly, it stained her arms yellow.
How do you tell if a number can be divided by 7? Check out this "divisibility graph" from David Wilson writing at Tanya Khovanova's Math Blog.
This method ends up working out kind of like a kids board game like "Chutes and Ladders" where you go 2 steps forward and then 3 back.
Here's the quick directions:
Break your number down into digits.
Start at the red zero. Go counterclockwise as many red dots as the leftmost digit of your number of interest.
Follow the arrow to another red dot.
Repeat steps 2 and 3 for all the remaining digits.
For the last digit, skip step 3. The number in the red dot is your remainder.
For example, if you want to find out if 234 is divisible by 7, you start at 0, then go to 2 (for the first digit), and then follow the arrow to 6. Now go 3 more dots back to 2, and the follow the arrow to 6 again. Lastly, go 4 dots around to 3, and skip the last jump. So your remainder is 3. You can confirm this with long division: 234 divided by 7 is 33r3.
If you follow the pointers from Art DuPre in the comments, it turns out you can do this for any number. I did it for 13 without any trouble, and the programmed the method without a diagram into Excel. Cool.
