Posted:Im sure loads of ppl have heard of this so did a quick search but nothing came up.

It a wierd lil brain teaser that really hurts my head so much that after 20 min solid trying i dont get it frown but thats nothing to some ppl it can take a lifetime.

www.borrett.id.au/computing/petals-j.htm

It says some ppl can get it in seconds but i dont see how. However the Uni guy who developed and tested it on his student did say something along the lines of the brightest of them having the most trouble with it.

Posted:If you have a maths brain like me, turn it off!
Then try again!


The color of dice is not important.
It has something to do with "around."
Roll the dice to get answers.
All answers are even.
Focus on what is the Rose.


It frustrated me for so long. I hate it!
