Yes, I AM Dumber Than a 5th-grader

5th grader

From the banks of the North Platte River in Southern Wyoming

Well, don’t I feel stooo-pid?

I ran across this brain teaser on social media the other day…

What is the number on the parking spot?

The guy who posted the puzzler said many grade-schoolers solved it in less than 10 seconds.

“Easy-peasy,” I thought. “I graduated grade school!”

So I gazed at the puzzle and pondered…

…and pondered…

…and pondered…

…and pondered…

…and stared at the ceiling…

…and pondered…

…and cursed…

…and gave up.

I clicked the link for the solution.

And this is what I saw…

Same problem viewed from a different perspective made all the difference.

I won’t beat that one into the ground. You get it.

And I’m in Wyoming where the fish are biting so I gotta run.
