Lets see how good you guys are, reading test. NO cheating, read once. Results at bottom of page. Count every 'F' in the following text.........

FINISHED FILES ARE THE RESULT OF YEARS OF SCIENTI
FIC STUDY COMBINED WITH THE EXPERIENCE OF YEARS.


How many 'Fs' did you count...1 or 3?
Scroll down the page for answer....















Wrong!!!! There are 6 'Fs' The reason being, the brain cannot process 'OF'
If you scored 6 (without cheating) Genius!!!!!!
3 is normal
4 quite rare.

Erm, i'm not a genius, but I got 6 :} .

It's the fact that you expect a trick that makes you look harder. We were once shown one in school that went like this:

A BIRD IN THE
THE HAND

... and for some reason no one reads out the second 'the' when it's written like that.

A woman walks into a market and says, "I want a dozen Bananas".

The clerk says, "we're out of Bananas".

The woman repeats, "I want a dozen bananas".

He again explains, "we have no Bananas!"

She say's, "there's one F in Grapefruit".

"Okay", " How many Fs in French fries"

"There ain't no F in Bananas", she says.

"That's what I've been trying to tell you lady - There aint no efn' Bananas

Dare? 'Hedge' isn't a dirty word :confused: . In that context neither is 'bush' I suppose (got my thesaurus out, you see :8 ).

Of course, 'bush' would be a dirty word if it was preceeded by 'President' :p .
