My score was 18. Missed numbers 3,4,10,12,14,15,and 18.
The average person only gets 7 right. This is based on U.S. 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 20?? (The average is 7) Write down your answers and 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...

13 but some of them were trick and could be answered either way - the water going down the drain depends on your loacation. A fan can spin either direction.

How the hey is anyone suppose to know what 6 colors are on a Campbells soup can!
Recently I was asked to play in a golf tournament.

At first I said, "Naw, I haven't been playing that well."

Then they said to me, "Come on, it's for handicapped and blind kids."

Then I thought...




Chit, I could win this!

13 - so much for wisdom with age! Didn't even answer a couple.
You mechanics must have a picture memory Erick. Always marveled at my son who can take any thing apart, and still put it all back together again. First time I saw em pull an automatic transmission apart, I thought - How in the hell is he gonna know where all those plates go when he puts it back together. Don't know! But HE does!
