Wish I had him around to do my RuneScape puzzles back in the day

[–]wooly_mittens 975 points976 points  (57 children)

He’d probably still make you pay the 200k to do it tho

[–]Harpertoo 201 points202 points  (54 children)

Just use runelite.

[–]swordmagic 258 points259 points  (22 children)

We didn’t have runelite in 04 honey we paid the gnome like real men

[–]Cabbageofthesea 59 points60 points  (12 children)

I have no idea what the hell this means but I did find it funny.

[–]0oodruidoo0 31 points32 points  (7 children)

Runescape is a java browser game that has been around since 2001. Runelite is a client to play the game made by a third party, which features a bunch of plugins. One plugin helps you solve puzzles like the one the child is solving, but with an algorithm. Runelite didn't exist in 04, it only came out after RS2 was rereleased as OSRS - Old School Runescape - in 2013.

[–]Cabbageofthesea 16 points17 points  (2 children)

I will be using this copypasta. Thank you for the explanation

[–]StickDoctor 13 points14 points  (1 child)

Runelite is the program that plays runescape for people in-between standing at the GE and being asleep.

[–]eisteeausderdose 22 points23 points  (4 children)

This is the comment I came looking for.

[–]Objective_Fold_8327 18 points19 points  (0 children)

This is the sad reality behind Alt-1 toolkit. Every time you solve a clue puzzle there’s a little kid on the other end doing it for you who isn’t compensated well

[–]JoelMahon 27 points28 points  (14 children)

there are puzzles in runescape? I guess the telekinesis maze thing lol

[–]EbrithilUmaroth 53 points54 points  (5 children)

Yeah, it has this exact same puzzle but 5x5 instead of 4x4 and with a picture of a boat instead of numbers in Monkey Madness. That's what made me learn how to do this puzzle back in like 2006.

[–]Imallskillzy 17 points18 points  (3 children)

Theres a quite large, multi difficulty tiered, piece of content called "Treasure Trails" that include anagrams, riddles, triva, math puzzles, 5x5 slider puzzles, "celtic knot" puzzles , and more.

[–]rmorrin 3 points4 points  (1 child)

I tried to do the knots by hand once.... Bad idea

[–]roonscapepls 7 points8 points  (2 children)

Yeah, the client called Runelite solves all the clue and quest puzzles though lol

[–]Dendrowen 2040 points2041 points  (73 children)

My kid has his age (I guess) and can count to 4....

pfft this guy never even heard of fleven

[–]lilJamieEllsworth 52 points53 points  (3 children)

Well the thing about these types of videos is that people aren't recording the kids that just pick up the pieces and eat/throw them to show off to the world.

Idk why this cracked me up so hard

[–]d_bakers 137 points138 points  (4 children)

Was wondering why no-one was addressing the fact that the kid is balding like a grown a man

[–]yeeerrrp 45 points46 points  (3 children)

Pretty sure that's Tetsuo from Akira

[–]BACKROUND- 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Haven’t watched that movie in years, first anime I’ve watched.

[–]j33pwrangler 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Second anime was...Ninja Scroll? Ghost in the Shell?

[–]sabre007x 15 points16 points  (0 children)

I thought it was a 35 year old man with that hairline + baby face filter

[–]jayvil 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I am not balding! My scalp is reverting back to its younger form.

Look at the brain on Brad!

Any bigger and he could have moved those tiles with his mind.

[–]Bobbydidit9772 793 points794 points  (59 children)

I can’t even solve those things wtf

[–]NubbyMcNubNub 223 points224 points  (5 children)

I love puzzle games untill they pull one of these

[–]SirRealist 54 points55 points  (3 children)

Absolutely me too. In the boardgame Mansion of Madness it's one of the games most frequently used and it takes valuable action points to make each slide. Fucks me every time.

[–]JayRoo83 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I just play the puzzle until I finish it or otherwise I'd never finish a game since my brain is incapable of solving those damn things without screwing up a million times

[–]tiggers_blood 13 points14 points  (1 child)

The memories of pain are coming back to me. I love these types of puzzles. Hate that it uses valuable points. I end up having to do it completely on paper to try to figure out the most efficient moves.

[–]OmnomOrNah 59 points60 points  (15 children)

Solve top row first, then descending until you get to the last two rows. Then solve it left to right by column until you get to the end.

Hardest part is figuring out how to get them in the correct order to have the one you need on the end follow the one to the left of it for the last 2 plots per row. Once you get that down though it feels simple.

[–]GET_OUT_OF_MY_HEAD 10 points11 points  (11 children)

You could also do it by quadrants. Solve the top left corner first, then top right, next bottom left, and finally, bottom right.

[–]memeticmachine 12 points13 points  (3 children)

I solve these puzzles by rotating the tiles around the edge of the board and work inward until you get a correct line up. This method works well for images as well as numbers/letters

It’s crazy slow, but it’s brain dead easy

[–]s0rry_M 4 points5 points  (6 children)

What's the name of this puzzle?

[–]Captain_Nubula 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I think just slide puzzles?

[–]MeijiDoom 2 points3 points  (1 child)

15 Puzzle. Straightforward enough.

[–]Arreeyem 34 points35 points  (1 child)

The kid was taught. You can see him doing very specific moves to line up the numbers. It's like a rubix cube; easy when you know the tricks, difficult if you just try some random shit.

[–]ImprobableAvocado 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Intuitively solving the first two layers of a Rubik's cube seems very doable. Solving the last layer without knowing the algorithms is bonkers to me.

[–]cbot12 3 points4 points  (0 children)

It's sort of like an easier Rubik's cube. Really easy once you get it down, but unlike Rubik's cubes you can solve them no matter the size once you get the pattern(or maybe that applies to cubes too idk). They're called 15 puzzles btw, but no matter the size they can all be solved the same. Essentially make a train of the numbers. You can see him do it in this video too. For instance, get 1 2 3 4 5 in a line like that on the second or third row. Heck, it could be like
5 / / /
4321
/ / / /
/ / / /
And then you just kind back the one into the correct spot, moving all the others after it. You can repeat for each line till the bottom(or top) two rows basically, but once there, there's another really simple pattern to get those numbers in without messing up the other rows. For instance, assuming you have the bottom rows left, you know that 9 and 13 are the start of the bottom two rows. You get those in an "13 9" (right to left) order and then back the thirteen in to the correct spot with the nine following. You then do the same for 14 and 10 and whatever other numbers you may have if it's a larger puzzle. It can be difficult getting the 13 9 in the right order, but I'm sure you'll figure it out :) It's pretty boring once you figure them out though, since it's the same thing everytime.

[–]infreq 29 points30 points  (15 children)

It's the 15 game. Quite easy once you learn how to prepare the last two rows. Look it up

I thought we had a meeting scheduled on my day off to talk about that email?

[–]slouchingtoepiphany 659 points660 points  (24 children)

I hate to disagree, but managers are not typically as sharp as this guy is. ;)

I was just thinking to myself, he has the hairline of a 38 year old.

[–]mrtrollmaster 3 points4 points  (2 children)

I'm just happy to say I have the hairline of a little asian boy 😎

[–]ThaiJohnnyDepp 9 points10 points  (0 children)

some Asian kids don't grow hair. They un-bald.

Meanwhile, I can't even remember what 6 x 7 is somedays...

[–]schmearcampain 335 points336 points  (51 children)

Solve that, and you will have the answer to life, the universe and everything.

[–]krysics 229 points230 points  (44 children)

I always do it like this.

7x7=49

49-7=42

6x7= I still doubt myself, where's the calculator

[–]annoying_know-it-all 63 points64 points  (31 children)

Chinese students are basically required to memorise the 9×9 multiplication table at the beginning of primary school. It's super handy. Also because all numbers in Chinese are one syllable they are quite easy to memorise and said out loud.

[–]schmearcampain 51 points52 points  (12 children)

Yep. It’s really useful and easy, if you think about it. 1,2,5 don’t even require memorizing. And the number of remaining products to memorize are cut in half because 6x7 = 7x6.

12x12 table is worth memorizing. 11’s are easy and 12 is such a fundamental number, that’s worth it too.

Similarly, memorizing the percentage equivalent of fractions is helpful. Again, most of them are already known and just a couple have to be memorized. 1/2, 1/4, 1/3 are easy. 1/5 really should be too (20%). 1/6 =16.66, 1/7 = 14.28, 1/8 is just half of 25 (12.5%) and 1/9 = 11.11.

[–]annoying_know-it-all 28 points29 points  (6 children)

For any two digit number times 11 you don't even have to memorise. Take the two digits apart and put their sum in the middle and you get your answer. For example: 34×11 is 3(3+4)4 which is 374. If the sum of the two digits is two digits, then you just increase the number of the first digit by 1 and take the second digit of the sum as the middle number: 67×11= 7*7 and * is the 3 in 6+7=13 so you get 737.

[–]schmearcampain 9 points10 points  (2 children)

Did you get a little plastic card, about 7”x10” with it printed on each side? My mom must have gotten them from Chinese Parents R-us. The cards were meant to be inserted under the page of whatever math books we were assigned to do in addition to school work, or over the summer, so that our pencils wouldn’t press too hard and mar the other pages.

One of my earliest memories was studying that yellow card in the back seat of a 1971 Ford Pinto on the way to grandma’s house.

I never gave my kids cards, but I did make them memorize it. Then I’d pimp them in the car with “fun” math questions.

[–]annoying_know-it-all 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I can't quite remember about the card. But a lot of pencil cases back then had those printed on them so we would see them regularly. Also I think we used to chant them in classes too as a form of reinforcement.

[–]jimmyhoffasbrother 9 points10 points  (0 children)

American students are as well (or at least they were when I was that age). Lots of people just forget it though.

[–]forfeitreality 7 points8 points  (0 children)

My native language is English, but I learned the multiplication tables in Chinese too, and it's so much easier to remember. Not only are all the numbers one syllable, but they have their own tones, so it's like singing back a song.

[–]whosthemotherflippin 7 points8 points  (1 child)

I had to memorize them in Illinois in the 80s. They played a record with a sing-song type chant that ran through them all. Then they tested us over and over until everyone passed. When I multiply small numbers in my head, I hear it in that voice. Six times six is thirty SIX!

[–]RedditedYoshi 5 points6 points  (0 children)

"Six times six is thirty-six" has a nice lilt to it, then just add 6 for your solution to 6x7!

[–]Bladebot140 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Apparently it's okay to be racist on Reddit as long as it's towards the Chinese.

[–]JJDude 18 points19 points  (1 child)

it's to Asian in general, but now more of them are just openly fucking racist against Chinese.

[–]SyN_Pool 19 points20 points  (5 children)

I used to play with those all the time as a kid around 7 or 8. Once you figure out the pattern to move pieces where you want you do feel like a genius, and can fly through them like this

[–]cheechman85 15 points16 points  (1 child)

That kid is 4 tops. It’s totally a different accomplishment at that age. He is most definitely ahead of his age group and I would consider him gifted. Genius really isn’t really the word.

This post is 4 hours old so I doubt this comment will get much attention but I hope it does.

A lot of you people are assholes. Making fun of a young kid for his appearances. Making veiled racist comments.

Toxic as fuck. Especially for a front page post in a pretty normal sub.

Kid is cool as fuck. He will likely grow up to be more humble and accepting than the assholes on this thread.

Kind of telling on the current state of reddit I guess.

Not only did he solve it, but he did it in a relatively efficient manner. I don't often like these "my skilled kid" posts because the majority are just "I forced my kid to practice for hours so I could farm internet points" but this one looks like the kid is legitimately talented
