Many years ago I was presented with an interesting puzzle. I did not solve it. I had to be told the answer. It is a very simple answer, but it isn't dumb. Figuring it out requires a significant leap of lateral thinking.

I figured I'd put it here for the amusement of others. Comments will be screened. I will eventually reveal the correct answer, but it may be a few months. :-) And now for the puzzle itself:

What is the next number in this sequence?

Unfortunately I can't answer you because there is no way to answer in private here. If you reply anonymously, I can't reply unless you tell me how to get ahold of you. I promise not to unscreen any such.
