Waste less time on Facebook — follow Brilliant.

I've made countless clumsy mistakes. Resulting in laughter among me and my friends; either way this website is fun.

I once made a mistake about the purpose of squirrels' tails, my answer was that it was obviously intended for balance, and i accidentally clicked a completely different answer. Just like when they asked if the hole within a metal plate would grow if affected by heat, i was about to answer grow, but i based my answer on that of my friend's and yeah...

These were the most annoying occurrences, two of many.

Hahahaha. Yeah making clumsy mistakes on Brilliant is the norm not the exception. While most of my math/physics fails result from my incomplete understanding, an embarrassing number of them result from:

  • inability to read my own awful handwriting
  • \( 4\times 4 = 8\) etc...
  • misreading the question and solving a problem that doesn't exist.

We're glad you are having fun. That's the point of it :) Peter Taylor Staff · 2 years, 7 months ago

@Peter Taylor Completely true! One time I was scrolling through the question, and I accidentally pressed a random answer that happened to be right. The same goes for picking an accidental wrong answer. It really sucks when that happens though. Robert Fritz · 2 years, 7 months ago
