Thread: Brain Problems

  1. #1
    Okay this is my first thread here. I just started posting here 2 days ago.

    So what is this place? You can do anything in here (only lounge?)
    I belong to another couple of forum's, but since its summer and i have nothing to do, the more the better

    Here are some things you could try. I'll post another one later B)

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    "MIND GAME





    2% or 98%



    This is strange...can you figure it out?



    Are you the 2% or 98% of the population?



    Follow the instructions! NO PEEKING AHEAD!



    * Do the following exercise, guaranteed to raise an eyebrow.



    * There's no trick or surprise.



    * Just follow these instructions, and answer the questions one at a
    time and as quickly as you can!


    * Again, as quickly as you can but don't advance until

    you've done each of them ... really.

    * Now, scroll down (but not too fast, you might miss something).

































    Think of a number from 1 to 10
















































    Multiply that number by 9


















































    If the number is a 2-digit number, add the digits together














































    Now subtract 5

















































    Determine which letter in the alphabet corresponds to the number
    you
    ended up with



    (example: 1=a, 2=b, 3=c,etc.)















































    Think of a country that starts with that letter












































    Remember the last letter of the name of that country




















































    Think of the name of an animal that starts with that letter


















































    Remember the last letter in the name of that animal


















































    Think of the name of a fruit that starts with that letter


















































    Are you thinking of a Kangaroo in Denmark eating an Orange?







    I told you this was FREAKY!! If not, you're among the 2% of the
    population whose minds are different enough to think of something else.
    98%
    of people will answer with kangaroos in Denmark when given this
    exercise."

    You got Denmark right.

    But since the answer to the numerical part is always 4, that wasn't too hard was it.

    It will almost always work, no matter what number you choose (other than 1) - when you multiply by 9 and add the digits of your answer it will always be 9.

    ex. 2X9=18 1+8=9
    4X9=36 3+6=9

    then subsequently, 9-5=4

    4=d

    Not many countries start with D, and one of the more obvious choices is Denmark. Not many animals start with K, Kangaroo would be a common choice. As for a fruit starting with O, what is the first thing that pops into mind?

    I never said it wasn&#39;t.
