Not for colorblind - the map should look like this!

The cat who was previously sleeping in my now-scratch-covered lap would like everyone to know that the map in the linked article plays a very loud sample of the musical genre when clicked.

You find the solution right away, but its wrong
Every so often, I come across a post on G+ or FB of some kind of mathematics "puzzle", that is presented as being tricky, or only for those with serious mathematical insight, or as this one claims, "geniuses". These puzzles usually strike me as so easy a second grader could do them with only a little mathematical instruction.

The thing that confuses and worries me, is that these posts, almost without fail, are followed by a comment thread with wrong answer after wrong answer, the occasional correct answer, and then all of the people who provided the most popular wrong answer ganging up on the few who answered correctly, calling them idiots. Even sometimes going so far as to write out ther "proof", wich is laden with arithmetic mistakes. It makes my brains vibrate with frustration.

The scariest part of all of this, for me is that I have probably received one of the worst high school educations that the USA has to offer. I was shipped off to a school for "troubled youth" in 11th grade and subsequently graduated from there. Before going there, I never did well in math. I just never grasped it very well. I do not have an inherent mathematical ability. At this special school, there was little to no education at all, for any class. Math class consisted of having us pick a math book off of the shelf, any one we wanted, be it teaching addition and subtraction or advanced algebra. Then we would sit at the table and just read the book and do problems at our whim. No homework, and no tests. No pressure to push ourselves. If we needed help we could ask the teacher for explanations but no one pushed themselves. Seriously, we were high school kids who society hated. I ended up doing adding and subtracting problems until I got my high school diploma (with straight As!) hahahahahahahaaaaaaaa! Basically, as long as we went to class and did not start a fight and seemed to be doing work, we got As.

So wtf is going on here? Have I suddenly developed a bit later in life some seriously impressive math ability? DOUBT IT!!

Why is what I am seeing as very basic beginner maths problems, perceived by the majority of people as super hard and clever?

Please if anyone has difficulty with this puzzle, let me know. I think that the G+ers that I follow are generally more learned than the FB people I follow so I would be interested in hearing your take on this. If a majority of you do have an issue with this, maybe I need to be studied by science.

Please be honest. This is not an attempt to find perceived "idiots" to insult. I am genuinely alarmed and confused by all I have explained.

Help me.

+Jyoti Dahiya Agreed, it's extremely frustrating to see how far we've come and how many are held so far back behind. But it's human nature to feel better about ourselves than we really should. :)

We, basically started drink less of everything - coffee, milk, alcohol. More soda consumption. Hence, larger weight. 
The final season of Mad Men, AMC's hit TV show about a 1960s New York advertising agency, begins on Sunday, April 13.  The show has had something approaching a cult following, though its audience last season declined in the US, and crashed in the UK. A lot of us at Quartz are fans, however, and we thought...

Interestingly, the map showing Soul is the most homogeneous with Folk/Rock/Metal/Punk showing largest differences around the country

Now this is genius!!! Why didn't I think to use y-axis upside down?

Fascinating story behind yesterday's doodle by +David Kroll

So he probably didn't exist?

Or the things he did were exaggerated way beyond the likely reality of his work?

Or was legendary just the wrong word to describe him? 

Maverick, trailblazing, determined?

Awesome! Science student Hugo Germain (aka. Graphonaute) is just 18 years old, but crates animations and visual effects that seem well beyond his years
