    This is actually how real calculators work. They just have really fast marbles on the inside

    I always wondered why calculators rattled and gave wrong answers if I shook them.

    If you guys want a marble calculator that adds up natural numbers of any size, all you need is a funnel and a bowl. Throw the amount of marbles you want to add up in the funnel, then count the result in the bowl. Awesome right?
