Now that we've all begun to accept this new way of life where we never get out of our sweats, how about we begin exploring our entertainment options? Sure, Netflix and pals have served us well so far but I'm sure at least some of you have been craving some off-screen time. While you could always pick up a book and try to immerse yourself in it, given our short attention spans these days (courtesy of social media), we all know that's not going to fare well for everyone. So how about we get back to our roots and get puzzling?!
And since our brains could really use a challenge to keep themselves busy — and devoid of anxious thoughts — these days, why not take things up a notch? Well, Amazon has got just that for you with this 1000-piece all-white utterly and absolutely impossible puzzle. Yup, all white. Front and back. A 1000 tiny pieces that fit God knows where and how. Sold by a company named Beverly for $31.80, the puzzle has been appropriately listed as "Pure White Hell Jigsaw Puzzle." The words "white" and "hell" pretty much sums up everything you need to know about this bench press for the brain.
The product seems to be a hit on Amazon with a 4-star cumulative rating. Happy customer Shawn T took it upon himself to share how the puzzle proved to be much more than a pointless pastime, writing: I bought this puzzle and realized early on that I had lost two pieces. I practiced radical acceptance and went on to complete the puzzle. That was months ago. I went on to mount the "finished" puzzle with the missing pieces. I got a lot of compliments because people actually thought it was intentional. Today I just found the remaining two pieces. I’m not sure how to carry on because I had already accepted and moved on with their loss. This has been a good exposure to acceptance for me.
Besides that, the puzzle pieces link together very very loosely so I had to first make the border and tape it together because otherwise, they’d just fall apart, he added. While Shawn T seems to have found zen within this puzzle, others are making rather good use of its unsolvability. Rating the puzzle a full five stars, That Fancy Fish wrote: I bought this puzzle because my team at work was going through one 1000 piece puzzle a week. This puzzle stopped them dead in their tracks. They managed about 10 connections over the course of a month after they separated the pieces into quarter puzzles based on the pattern on the back. They eventually gave up and got back to work.
Amazon user Kim Taylor also sang praises for the puzzle's challenge, writing: Mom usually can complete a 1000 jigsaw in a single day... Got her this one a couple of weeks ago...and she is STILL working on it (has 3/4 complete). It really is a hard puzzle. Anyone looking for a challenge should get this... or anyone looking to torture someone who loves puzzles should get this. At this point, when it is finished there are threats of burning in its future. Sounds wonderful, doesn't it? Are you up for this challenge?
