One of the strongest memories from my childhood is getting my hands on comic books. Some of them came every week—others less often. The ones that came with the newspaper contained various types of challenges.
I remember it was a fun and much-needed break from reading whatever series I was following. It was also very exciting to compare the results with my friends and see who could solve all the puzzles first.
Regardless of the outcome (I remember losing most of the time), it was a joyful and thrilling part of my life. I remember it being very competitive.
As an adult, I still think brainteasers are fun. They don’t have to be lengthy or complicated—trying to understand a riddle or an optical illusion is good enough.
Time to focus
Nowadays, it doesn’t feel like I can focus on solving a few brainteasers as often as I used to. It could be that I’m getting old, or my responsibilities take so much more time—I can’t be sure.
But that’s why I always cheer up when I find time to solve a puzzle. It reminds me of the good ‘ol days.
Earlier today, for example, surfing the web, I came across the challenge below—and it was more deceptive than I thought at first glance.
