Rubber duck debugging

Today I spent an hour trying to figure out why "the system" was behaving a particular way.  My conclusion was that it was impossible based on the code.  Eventually I decided to call over an experience colleague as another pair of eyes.  Just 30 seconds in to explaining the issue I figured out what was wrong.  To which my colleague said you didn't need me you just needed a rubber duck!
