What did Reddit users say about this Brooklyn Nine-Nine puzzle?

“In this riddle, are we to just ASSUME the seesaw is perfectly balanced like some architectural phenomenon on a deserted island!?” wrote a Reddit user. “Wouldn’t you just weigh 6v6, one side will be lighter so you weigh those 3v3 and then pick 2 out of the lighter side to weigh last.
