I found this odd funny game ad I thought it could be nice to share. Results could be very interesting!

Try to count, as quick as possible, the "F" in the following text:

FINISHED FILES ARE THE RE-
SULT OF YEARS OF SCIENTIF-
IC STUDY COMBINED WITH THE
EXPERIENCE OF YEARS.

Did you say three? Are you sure? Maybe you want to read it again?


Well, "F" are SIX! And if you said THREE, that's normal. It seems in fact that human brain apparently skips the "OF".
If you said SIX, you are a genius. FOUR, well that's odd!

As for me.., I said THREE..:( I'm avarage..

I counted six... Apr 30, 2007

... but I read it twice.

Conclusion: repeating makes an average person a genius:)

odd Apr 30, 2007

first time, I conted four - I think I somehow counted the second "OF", possibly because it is near the end of a line.

But the amusing thing is that on re-reading, after learning that I should have found 6 Fs, I could only see 3 - I almost panicked at the loss of the fourth! (then I spotted the rest...).

I think I've still to decide between being normal or odd... Whatever this may mean...

an average and an odd here Apr 30, 2007

I'm average, my friend is odd. Pff, I got the ofs first time at the third read. My excuse is: Don't proof read when you are getting tired. ,-)

Maybe another one..soon Apr 30, 2007

Hi, I'm so glad you all liked my little game, here! Maybe tomorrow I'll post another one which is even crazier since you need to make some quick additions and then think to a word and everyone seems to think the same word..
Now, THAT'S ODD!

So, in the end we have only one SIX, but at the second reading..
One FIVE and three FOUR, which make FIVE ODDS.
and FIVE AVARAGE professionals..

Interesting..hmm..

But the game is not over yet, I still want more people to participate the game, ok?

Time to sleep now..

'Nite!
