    Puzzling pro tip: if a puzzle has no interactive part exposed, just spin it.

      Or shake it. Or tap it. Or- Yeah, you get the point. Do whatever you haven't tried yet unless it was previously mentioned not to do said action.

      @Dragoon GT I would say the lack of a centripetal force caused them to go out. Centripetal forces are center seeking, so they need to be provided by something like a string holding them to the rod.

  • Elijah Brown
    Elijah Brown 20 days ago

    He was right about it being simple. When I looked at the thumbnail for this short, I already knew how to solve it. This is partially because I watch quite a few puzzle videos, and I've seen several puzzles similar to this one, but the main reason I knew how to solve it without even watching a single millisecond is because I have a higher IQ than a 1yr old.

    • Iamjenjen 101
      Iamjenjen 101 3 months ago

      Yo it's centrapetal. I was taught in highschool to immediately discount anyone who says anything about centrafugal force, because it's often misunderstood that spinning things push things outward or inward depending on who your talking to. In reality the force is in the direction of the spin. The marble gets pushed one way as the "hole" moves in the direction that the marble gets pushed. I don't know how well that translates when I don't have a chart and arrows to show the direction of the force tho.

  • Phil Butcher
    Phil Butcher 9 months ago +906

    I expect most of us got that instantly, but what probably helped some was the fact that there is a pin in the middle that suggests a centre and therefore suggests spinning. What else would you do with such and object other than spin it? It is is even shaped for spinning.

  • Creeper Aww man

  • Iamjenjen 101
    Iamjenjen 101 3 months ago

    It's centrapetal force guys! When you spin something the direction of the force is the direction it's spinning towards.
    Imagine you tie a marble to a spinny thingy with a string, and the marble starts spinning counterclockwise in a circle. The string miraculously breaks when the marble is at the top of the circle. The marble would not go outward away from the middle, nor inward towards the middle, it would roll to the right, or if it breaks when the marble is in the 3 o'clock position the marble would go downwards. The direction of the force is pointed the direction it's spinning.
    The reason the marble goes into the hole in the canoe is like this: the marble is flung leftward, and the hole is flung leftward, they meet at the same spot.

      *Me too. At first I thought the object was to put both in simultaneously, and if you didn’t do it at the same time it didn’t count. So I thought how do you move them in opposite directions? It wasn’t until he showed doing it one at a time that I realized you could do it that way.*
