There are certain problems in this world that need geniuses to come up with solutions. For example, how do you keep smokers from throwing their cigarette butts on the ground? Or how do you prevent your skateboard from being stolen? Or what if the public bench you want to sit on is wet from rain?
The genuises behind these solutions are amazing. They took simple problems and created simple solutions. In fact, as you see them, two things will happen: 1) You will ask yourself “why didn’t I think of that?”… and 2) You will say to yourself “how genius!”
