Can you figure out this riddle? “Backwards it is not.”

A Ton is heavy but backwards “not” is nothing.  I love riddles like this one where the answer was already given to you but we miss it because we focus so hard on another part.  Right in the riddle it said “backwards it is not.”  It gave you the answer.

Magicians are able to trick us so often because they play with this brain perception/reality part of our brain.  It is a case of having you watch the left hand while the right hand is doing all the work.

I find this happens at work a lot. We make solutions much harder than they need to be.  So try today to find the simple answer to what you are looking at.
