mind games

Hi All,

Okay this is what I get for strolling through blogs on a quiet Friday afternoon. I found this teaser on the blog MMA Days (that next blog button is my curse, I get to read what people are thinking all over the world.) Anyhoo, are you 2% or 98% of the population? answer will appear in comments

Mind Game 2% or 98 %

A little different.
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

    Silly Jerseygirl,

    my cat from the Dominican Republic, who likes to eat tangerines, scoffs at your kangaroo! Of course, my cat only exists because I have done this one before; otherwise, I would be stuck with an orange-eating Danish kangaroo, too.

    Hey Jersey Girl,
    I got so messed up I got to Ethiaopia, with a Kiwi eating Aardvark. Obviously I can't follow direction correctly. It was a good laugh.

    I have done this before too, even remembered it vaguely as I did it... and still had a kangaroo in Denmark. Even though I wasn't completely sure how to spell Demark... sheesh I am so 98%!

    Wow, How did you know my kangaroo was eating an orange in Denmark? I'm too busy to figure it out right now but cool. Regina
