Simple puzzle too difficult after all? Many despair at the first attempt
A very simple puzzle has been going online for years in various forms. It shows two pieces of paper. On one of them, you are asked in English to like/share it or do something else once you have solved the error. There are nine numbers on the second sheet. What's wrong?
We don't want to tell you at this point, after all, you should find out for yourself. Not everyone was able to do that right away. "I can't find it," one wrote. "I've never been able to solve this. Ah, now I've seen it. Hooray!" another user. "It took me about 30 seconds" a musician who also shared the riddle. "Took 30 seconds" another.
Do you really, really want to know?
As a rule, everyone actually comes up with it pretty quickly. The error is not hidden in the series of numbers. But almost everyone falls for it and looks there first. Before they realize the real mistake. Which is hidden in the WORD "error". Of course, the English word "mistake" is not spelled "mitsake".
