Its fun to see how much you really pay attention to things around you. Take a minute and try it....its fun! Have a great day! buddah :cool2:

The average person only gets 7 correct. !

This is based on US. 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 averag e 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.

I managed 19. Some of these questions are unfair to the younger members though.

Dear Brother Jay;
I managed to tie the 23/25. The Soup colors were off by two although I rarely ever eat soup except homemade at certain times of the year.
The Snow White thing was the other one. I was not raised with the traditional "white mans" stories.
Good Fun though. Kind of reminds me of the "KIMS Games" we used to have to play back when I was a younger man in another time and another place.
I agree with some of the other posts, it DOES make you stop and think a bit. :smile2: The best part was that it was CLEAN fun, not like some I have seen!
Take Care, "Tight Lines"
Cordially,
Coyote1

Not knocking you, just something to think about. A lot of us will date ourselves with our answers, and many of us have seen some very different things.

1. On a standard traffic light, is the green on the top or bottom?
Some states and countries stop lights are horizontal, not vertical.

4. What six colors are on the classic Campbell's soup label?
People buy soup in a can?

5. What two numbers on the telephone dial don't have letters by
them?
Dial? Some people have never seen a telephone dial. However, the answer is still correct for a touch tone pad.

7. How many matches are in a standard pack?
Already mentioned, but most people don't use them and many haven't looked at one.

10. Which way does water go down the drain, counter or clockwise?
Mentioned in your answer section, but below the equator it's the other way.

12. How many channels on a VHF TV dial?
Life without cable or sattelite? Almost unknown anymore.

14. Which way do fans rotate?
My ceiling fan is reversible.

17 How many lug nuts are on a standard car wheel?
There is a standard anymore? I have seen 1, 4, 5, 6, 8, and 10

19. Sleepy, Happy, Sneezy, Grumpy, Dopey, Doc. Who's missing?
Fairly old tales that many people haven't seen anymore.

25. Does a merry-go-round turn counter or clockwise?
Peewee got you on this one.

I think I managed to do this without giving away answers.
