I got 14 right


I got this test from my sister who
apparently spent the whole day fuckin off



This was challenging. This really is not as easy as you might imagine, try it and let me know how you do. The average person only gets 7 right. 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. Can you beat 20?? (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

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 Ho w 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 bare no digits?
24. How many curves are there in the standard paper clip?
25. Does a merry-go-round turn counter or clockwise?

Hi Greg,
Nice Test.
I scored a dismal 17.
'Dismal' because I have a lot more
hard years behind me.
Oh yeah,

They will have to go to you for the answers ! Ha
Thanks,

Loved the survey....but question 20 is now kinda wrong. One of the hot dog makers got with a bread company and now you buy 8 hot dogs and 8 hot dog buns. Amazing isn't it that someone finally set things right. Here's a story about it if you or anyone else is curious.

By the way, your blog is still the best damn blog I've read.

Seventeen but I have a couple of things to say.
1. my radio dial goes to 87.5
2. I don't watch TV so the whole VHF thing went over my head.
3. I got that swinging arm question wrong but I think I was right.
4. Seventeen is a damn good score for us ADHD folks.

Only 18, but VHF looks a looks like UHF these days - being an old fart. Fans rotate the other way - CCW if you are installing then in a chassis! ;-)
