Nice one! I was thinking of numbers but it never occurred to me to start with zero!

My brain was totally on the wrong playing field!!! VERY tricky

Nice... Stumped me, never thought in the direction.

i just did a teaser similar to this, so i was already thinking in the right direction.

i had no idea ... i was thinking wrong

did this at school once but forgot it

i got everything. there seem to be so many teasers like this.

There are many teasers that involve the number of letters in numbers, so this one isn't exactly original. Though, with the repeating numbers in the pattern, it's pretty easy to not think along the right path.

As long as it's explained reasonably, anything could be said to be the next 3 in the series. For example, perhaps the series is alternating between the two separate series "3, 4, 5" repeated and "33, 44, 55" repeated, so the next 3 numbers would be "3, 3, 5".

- It took me about an hour to get this one, AFTER reading the answer!

That was fun! Didn't get it first time I read the answer.

I have seen a ot like this lately. It's sort of getting old.
