This is one of those fun social media posts where you see a ton of people feeling really, really confident about their intelligence…and almost all being completely wrong.
Twitter user @thomas_violence decided to have a little fun at others’ expense so, having nothing better to do, posted an image and asked the internet one simple questions: How many triangles?

Well…it’s harder than it looks, obviously.
Me? I wouldn’t even attempt it, and if I did, I’d go into it assuming that I would be wrong. Because if it’s an easy question, what fun is posting it to Facebook and waiting for people to start throwing pickles at the window?
Not many people’s pickles stuck, as you can see. Honestly, like me, most of these people would have been just as well off guessing a random number.
This one is my favorite. Like…what?
Although this one is a contender, too. What in the heck is a word triangle?
Perhaps the key is to not overthink it?
Even the original poster wasn’t sure what to do when people started to respond on Twitter, and even less so when religion somehow became involved.
I have no idea what’s happening anymore or how we got here, but I do have an answer for you, if you’re interested.
It’s 18 – although honestly, that’s the least interesting piece of this particular puzzle, if you ask me.
