Guy's Hack for Beating Triangle Peg Puzzle Deserves Nobel Prize

If you've ever sat down for a meal at a Cracker Barrel and left because you couldn't get the high score on the little triangle peg puzzle they leave out on the table, then you're gonna enjoy this.

This guy developed a method for beating the game every time. The trick is to picture the triangle representing a sinking ship and remove the pegs in the order in which people might actually leave a boat in danger.

The basic idea takes advantage of our brains' natural inclination for storytelling to help us remember a complex sequence by replacing the abstract pegs with things we can think of more concretely.

Maybe you already knew this trick, but as someone who never figured out how to beat this stupid little game, this is the most important thing I've learned all year.
