Got this in an email, I got a 17. Answer these questions, answers are on the bottom.
***********************************************************************
The average person only gets 7 correct.



This is based on U.S. info, so use all lobes of your brain. This can be more difficult than it looks - it just shows how little most of us really see!

There are 25 questions about things we see every day or have known about all our lives. How many can you get right? These little simple questions are harder than you think-- it just shows you how little we pay attention to the commonplace things of life.

Put your thinking caps on. No cheating! No looking around! No getting out of your chair! No using anything on or in your desk or computer!


Can you beat 23?? (The average is 7) Write down your answers as you go. Check answers (on the bottom), AFTER completing all the questions.


REMEMBER - NO CHEATING!!! BE HONEST!!! That means no looking at your phone or anything on your desk...


Then, before you pass this on to your friends, change the number on the subject line to show how many you got correct. Forward to your friends and also back to the one who sent it to you.



LET'S JUST SEE HOW OBSERVANT YOU RE ALLY ARE.


Here we go!


1. On a standard traffic light, is the green on the top or bottom?


2. How many states are there in the USA ? (Don't laugh, some people don't know)


3. In which hand is the Statue of Liberty 's torch?


4. What six colors are on the classic Campbell 's soup label?


5. What two numbers on the telephone dial don't have letters by them?


6. When you walk does your left arm swing with your right or left leg? (Don't you dare get up to see!)


7. How many matches are in a standard pack?


8. On the United States flag is the top stripe red or white?


9. What is the lowest number on the FM dial?


10. Which way does water go down the drain, counter or clockwise?


11. Which way does a "no smoking" sign's slash run?


12. How many channels on a VHF TV dial?


13 On which side of a women's blouse are the buttons?


14. Which way do fans rotate?


15 How many sides does a stop sign have?


16. Do books have even-numbered pages on the right or left side?


17 How many lug nuts are on a standard car wheel?


18. How many sides are there on a standard pencil?


19. Sleepy, Happy, Sneezy, Grumpy, Dopey, Doc. Who's missing?


20. How many hot dog buns are in a standard package?


21 On which playing card is the card maker's trademark?


22 On which side of a Venetian blind is the cord that adjusts the opening between the slats?


23. There are 12 buttons on a touch tone phone. What 2 symbols bear no digits?


24. How many curves are there in the standard paper clip?


25. Does a merry-go-round turn counter or clockwise?

May He turn their ankles,
So we'll know them by their limping.

There's a dear little plant that grows in our Isle
Twas St . Patrick himself, sure, that set it;
And the sun of his labour with pleasure did smile,
And with dew from his eye often wet it.
It grows through the bog, through the brake, through the
Mireland, and they call it the dear little shamrock of Ireland.

I made 20 - not bad

my wrong ones were:

standard pack of matches - I use lighters

FM Dial - I thought 86

The Water down the drain - I knew they run differently on each side of the equator - but I mixed up which one goes which on what side.

The non smoking sign - wrong direction LOL

VHF TV Dial

15

I never look at a campells soup can beyond recognising red and white

Technically, 0 does have letters on the key. Just not often used (labeled for Operator. What's that for these days?)

Don't pay attention to swinging arms often either

Even when I've seen a book of matches, I don't use it, so why look? Too flemsy. Give me either a box of good wooden matches, or a lighter

I was thinking the FM dial started at 87. shame on me there

The water does depend on hemisphere, and they did not specify until the answers

Got the direction of the smoking slash wrong

I haven't used VHF or UHF either one in ages. How many are there in UHF? It's sixty something isn't it?

The fan direction depends on how it's set, and what kind of fan. For example, the only fan I can actually see right now is turning counter clockwise.

I had a brain fart on the names of the seven dwarves. Sometimes I can remember them all, sometimes I can't

I only got 16 correct. But I will argue the FM dial question. After taking the test (and getting that one wrong) I looked at my radio. FM starts at 87.9.

yeah I thought it's lower than 88 - my mp3 player runs over my car radio on 87.9 - that's why I thought it was 86.

Maybe they rounded up LOL

I got 16. I could argue the merry-go-round one though--the ones on the playground goes both ways. I always forget yellow and blue on the soup label. I've actually done this several times over the last 20 years or so. You would think I'd score better.
