# Mind game.

This is strange...can you figure it out? Are you the 2% or 98% of the population?

* 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.

Yes, you're right, kangaroo, Denmark and orange - spooky!!! I wish I'd been original and gone with koala now!

I had a Koala in Denmark eating an apple.

Instead of subtracting 5, if you subtract 4, match to a letter (a=1, b=2 etc.), think of an animal beginning with that letter, and the colour of that animal, the majority will have a grey elephant.

I got Kangaroo, Denmark & Orange

deutschland - dog - guava :w00t:

Nope, i'm thinking of a starving Duck in Deutschland (cos I can't think of a fruit beginning with K off the top of my head) :giggle:

an Aardvark eating a Kiwi in Estonia

So what number did you think of originally?

denmark koi and.. i i i ... i cant think of one!!!!

Dominic republic _ camel _ Lemon

Not far off :giggle:

a number 1

1 * 9 = 9 - 4 = 5 = E

ok, my mistake. Subtracted 4 instead of 5

i got dominican republic - cow - water melon:thumbsup:

Koala eating an apple in Denmark.

Your always gonna end up with the letter D and Denmark is the most obvious country beginning with the letter D, same goes for Kangeroo and Orange. They are the most obvious examples!

1) What are the first 3 digits of your phone number? (do NOT include the area code)
2) Multiply by 80
4) Multiply by 250
5) Add in the last four digits of phone number
6) Add in the last four digits of phone number again
7) Subtract 250
Divide by 2.

Is the result your phone number?

Where on earth do people find 7 year old threads??

just outside my tardis

I got Morocco, otter & raspberry! Why did everyone get Denmark?

And why do they find them and genuinely maintain that the first I animal they thought of was an impala rather than Indian Palm Squirrel.

they probably followed the instructions properly X)

Anyway, Dominican Republic, Coati, Ice Cream Bean.

Of course.

Nah. The OP did it wrong. Allowing people to pick 9 = Morocco.

Or Myanmar, Rock Hyrax, Xigua

Oh? Did I not mention? Allowing people to pick 9, multiply it by 9, and get the answer 99. I thought that was a given.

[Incredible gif finding btw]
