The holidays are a hectic time of year.

We're trying to put on the best show, present our best selves, and ensure we have our best end to the year.

Gifts are a common tradition, but man, wrapping them is so hard.

How do you make sure it always looks great? What do you do if you cut the paper a little too short?

Luckily, the internet was recently blown away by a wrapping hack that's as simple as it is brilliant.

The video uploaded to Blossom on Facebook, depicts a series of hacks to make your gift wrapping a little easier. With everything from making gift bags out of wrapping, or adding a built-in pocket for a card, the video has a lot of tricks.

But the one that caught the internet by storm is what to do if you cut the paper just a little too short. The answer is a simple tilt.


It's that simple.

The Blossom video is the source of the clip, but it gained a lot more attention after being shared on Twitter by user Waterstones.

Unfortunately, it has since been removed, due to a copyright claim.

Still, Twitter is where the internet had their minds blown.

Maybe if you understood geometry, this hack was already your choice of wrapping.

The rest of us are just excited to have an answer when we make a mistake.

Then again, some math people didn't get it right away either.

Maybe this hack is too-little-too-late for you this year, but keep this article bookmarked.

Who knows?

You might find it helpful for a birthday party.

And a hanging caddy like the Primode Hanging Gift Wrap Storage Bag with Detachable Accessory Tote, available here, for all of your wrapping needs could make Christmas clean-up or keeping that all occasion paper handy for the rest of the year simpler too.

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

Redditor u/Animeking1108 wanted to discuss how the education system has ideas that sometimes are just more a pain in the butt than a daily enhancement... What was the dumbest rule your school enforced?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

Redditor u/Gorgon_the_Dragon wanted to hear from doctors about why it is imperative we always get second and maybe third opinions by asking... Doctors of Reddit, what was the worse thing you've seen for a patient that another Doctor overlooked?

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.
