A good friend sent me the following test to frustrate me. I thought I would share it with you. You might want to copy it and email it to your “smart” friends to frustrate them.
Test for Idiocy
Below are four (4) questions and a bonus question.
You have to answer them instantly. You can't take your time, answer all of them immediately. OK?
But don’t cheat. Read only the question and get the answer, then scroll on down to check your answer. Let's find out just how clever you really are....
You are participating in a race. You overtake the second person. What position are you in?
If you answered that you are first, then you are absolutely wrong! If you overtake the second person,
you take his place, so you are second!
Try not to mess up next time. Now answer the second question, but don't take as much time as you took for the first one, OK ?
If you overtake the last person, then you are...?
If you answered that you are second to last, then you are wrong again. Tell me, how can you overtake the LAST Person?
You're not very good at this, are you?
Very tricky arithmetic! Note: This must be done in your head only. Do NOT use paper and pencil or a calculator.
Take 1000 and add 40 to it.. Now add another 1000 . Now add 30. Add another 1000. Now add 20 . Now add another 1000. Now add 10. What is the total?
Did you get 5000? The correct answer is actually 4100.
If you don't believe it, check it with a calculator!
Today is definitely not your day, is it?
Maybe you'll get the last question right......Maybe.
Mary's father has five daughters: 1. Nana, 2. Nene, 3. Nini, 4. Nono. What is the name of the fifth daughter?
Did you Answer Nunu? NO! Of course it isn't.
Her name is Mary. Read the question again!
Okay, now the bonus round:
A mute person goes into a shop and wants to buy a toothbrush. By imitating the action of brushing his teeth he successfully expresses himself to the shopkeeper and the purchase is done.
Next, a blind man comes into the shop who wants to buy a pair of sunglasses; how does HE indicate what he wants?
He just has to open his mouth and ask... It's really very simple. He’s only blind, not mute.
Laugh a little. Lighten up.
Enjoy the simple things in life.
We tread this road but once.
Joke of the Day
A noted heart surgeon was having a formal party. Shortly before the guests were to begin arriving he was told that all the bathrooms were backed up and not flushing.
Quickly he called a 24 hour plumber listed in the phone book.
The plumber arrived quickly and within 15 minutes told the surgeon that all was well.
He gave his bill to the heart surgeon and the surgeon exclaimed, "$900! You were only here 15 minutes! I'm a heart surgeon and even I can't charge that much"!
The plumber quietly replied, “Neither could I when I was a heart surgeon".
