We've heard it time and time again. "This puzzle is so simple even a kid can figure it out!" Maybe it's something in a school kid's mind is more focused than adults but it always seems like kids can pick out the simple things adults often overlook. It's sort of uncanny but we should envy them for it. They must have much less going on up there than our jam packed adult minds. So when we saw this riddle we were taken aback by how simple it was.
Here's the coffee riddle from twitter user @_herbeautyxo that seems incredibly simple, but will get your brain twisted and craving caffeine in minutes. If you can figure this out without cheating, we'll give you props.
Which cup gets the coffee?
I've only had one cup so far today, and it took me awhile to get it. Many bold responders claimed they'd figured it out right away. We're a bit skeptical.
But they were denied.
They came back for more. Nice try but...
They were wrong.
"How about this?"
NO. Not even close! Want a hint yet?
So, if you look closely, this isn't a math puzzle or a maze. It's just a matter of what cup could actually even be reached. Most of the paths are blocked off. How did we not notice this at first??
So, the answer is officially five, but if you look closely, it doesn't really seem like there's enough coffee to make it into the cup, right? We're still a bit baffled but it did start to make a bit more sense.
Maybe I' overthinking this.
I am just going to go order a cappuccino like a normal person and keep mouth shut. Except when drinking coffee.
