The dumbest person will know something you don't.

No matter how smart you think you are, even the dumbest person will know something you don't

How smart are we? I remember when I was two or three and learned how to spell yes and no. I thought I was the smartest person in the world. The older I get, the more knowledge I accumulate, the more dumber I used to be.

Side note: What annoys me more than anything is when someone says this is too complicated, Trust me, take my word for it. As my grandfather would say, put one hand on your wallet, the other on your backside, you're about to get screwed without being kissed.

This puzzle is often called Einstein's Puzzle or Einstein's Riddle because it is said to have been invented by Albert Einstein as a boy; it is also sometimes attributed to Lewis Carroll. However, there is no known evidence for Einstein's or Carroll's authorship and the Life International version of the puzzle mentions brands of cigarette, such as Kools, that did not exist during Carroll's lifetime or Einstein's boyhood.

It is often claimed that only 2% of the population can solve the puzzle.
