The average person only gets 7 right. This is based on U.S. & CDN info,
so use all of the lobes of your brain. This can be more difficult than
it looks - it just shows how little most of us really see! There are 27
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 common place 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 20?? (The average is 7) Write down your answers and then check
your answers (on the bottom) only 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 REALLY ARE.

Here we go!

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?

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

18. How many lug nuts are on a standard car wheel?

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

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

down?

I went back and recounted. I got 23 but I will maintain my score is 22 with a (-1) bonehead penalty for counting deficiencies.

Fairly highly. I can't speak for the guy that is typing for me (the manipulator). I think he is actually kind of modest. At least you recognized that there are 2 of us.

I think that #23 is subjective. When I ordered my blinds, I ordered both the wand and the up/down cord on the the same side, the right side...

I thought some of the question might be trick ones. Especially since it was "how many states are in the USA"
I was looking at in being the subjective word in trickery. I thought...well...is it 48 since Alaska and Hawaii aren't "IN" the USA. But then I thought...hmm...screw it. I'm going with 50.

Spivol...Alaska and Hawaii are not contiguous with the lower 48 states, but we've been "in" the USA for many years.

And I got 13. It's Monday and I'm pregnant, that's my stupid excuse for the day
