# Dec 14 2010How To: Multiply Numbers By Doodling

Math was always my worst subject. I was a straight C- student. Is that why I got kicked out of the architecture program in college? Maybe. Or it could have been the fact every building I designed either looked like a tit or something to smoke out of. Some both. Whichever the case, I wish I'd learned to multiply by doodling and maybe I would've gone further in life. Because right now I feel like I'm just sort of wavering at the starting line like I was daydreaming when the "GO!" shot was fired. Oh wow, look at all those people run. Holy shit, cool shoes. Anyway, this is an instructional video on how to multiply numbers by counting the number of intersections in a corresponding line-doodle. I'm gonna give it a go, I'll report back.

Okay so apparently 241 x 18 = a dinosaur pushing a robot into a volcano. Sounds right to me!

Hit the jump FOR MY ACTUAL DOODLE and the how-to instructional video.

Thanks to Ryne and Lydia, who still do math the old fashioned way: with a calculator.

No wonder they're all so good at math. Even their notebook doodles are calculations. American kids' notebook margins are nothing but boobs and guns.

My notebook doodles are usually guns that shoot boobs.

and i'm a 45 year old psychiatrist. Trust me, when you're talking to a shrink, you do NOT want to see what he's writing on his notepad.

Also: I can say that because as a young kid in a US public school, my margins were nothing but boobs and guns, with the occasional ninja stick figure war that spanned several pages at a time. Although granted not only did I still get A's in math, but those doodles fed my creative side and got me into studying art more seriously and later becoming a professional cartoonist, but still.

@5: I figured it was either boobs or grocery lists.

haha who the hoff (howard stern anyone) would waste their time doing all that extra work. GW you need to invest into some more attractive people on you site YOU PIECE OF SHIT!!!!!

-turd

p.s. go to chive and steal their women

Eh. This is just a slower but graphical representation of how you would normally multiply.

so 1 x 1 = 1 wooow!

I've yet to see anyone kicked out of architecture school bc of "the math". Draw up a giant phallic tower, then ship it off to the engineers to find out its struc loads. DONE

@5 - I am scared of a 45 year old psychiatrist named McFeely Smackup that 'draws guns that shoot boobs. What sort of operation are you running sir.

241 x 18 = The Mona Lisa?
WTF is that Masterpiece?

GW!!!! you are an artiste!

Get a calculator you lazy f**k!

@16 that makes no sense, it would be lazy to get a calculator as this takes more time.

Also I have done this for many years are people just now finding out about it?

if they are so smart why havent they discover calculators :P

Chuck Norris does it with his fist.

wat about 1 x 1 ?

@21 - 1X1 would just be an X with only 1 intersecting point making the answer 1.

I hate the way the 9 looks too much like a g.

Try 98 times 756...

Liar!!! You said there would be a how-to instructional video, but all I saw was this kid doing math with a worse method than abacus (click my name). Show us how you made the image GW!

you guys dont have a sub-processor? Interesting *digitally records information*

i guess that sort of made sense...

Damn, I thought the link would work...

How the hell do they divide?!?!?!?!?!

That takes longer to do than just multiplying it the old fashion way... though it's interesting to know you CAN do that.

Totally Photoshoped.

What if one of the numbers is a 0?

Why don't they teach this in America?!? seriously..

@ 31 - Thats the only flaw in their plan - they're a bit sensitive about it, so Shhhhh!

Please don't kill me GW ! :C

I showed this to my friend. He told me to do 789 x 798. Then I was like :|

First!

GW how long did you spend working on that awesome picture?
