There's no way Antley Lamont Staten knew what he was getting into when he posted a simple picture to his Facebook and captioned it, "Ok i don't get it?" Or maybe he did. Either way, it got shared nearly 400,000 times.

It's really hard, right? (It's not, but you might think it is.) You're not alone!

Are you smarter than these people?

Well, did you solve the puzzle?

I'll wait.

(Not to brag, but I solved the puzzle extremely quickly, so.)

OK, time's up.

Here's the answer: there's no "mistake" with the numbers. The "mistake" is with the spelling of the word…"mistake!" Classic.

People were eager to share when they'd solved the puzzle.

But this guy…come on, man.

If there's one thing you take away from this post, it's that you never want to be this guy.
