I only got 18 correct

The average person only gets 7 correct.


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 as you go.

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...


Then, before you pass this on to your friends, change the number on the
subject line to show how many you got correct. Forward to your friends and also
back to the one who sent it to you.



LET 'S JUST SEE HOW OBSERVANT YOU REALLY ARE.

1. On a standard traffic light, is the green on the top or bottom?


2. How many states are there in the USA? (Don't laugh, some people don't
know)


3. In which hand is the Statue of Liberty's torch?


4. What six colors are on the classic Campbell's soup label?


5. What two numbers on the telephone dial don't have letters by them?


6. When you walk does your left arm swing with your right or left leg?
(Don't you dare get up to
see!)


7. How many matches are in a standard pack?


8. On the United States flag is the top stripe red or white?


9. What is the lowest number on the FM dial?


10. Which way does water g! o down t he drain, counter or clockwise?


11. Which way does a "no smoking" sign's slash run?

OK, I got 14 but I want to say that some of them were not legitimate questions or just to vague...

2. How many states are there in the USA? (Don't laugh, some people don't know)
Last I heard Hawaii & Puerto Rico were not part of America. Alaska is, so I said 48

17 How many lug nuts are on a standard car wheel?
Based on what? American, Japanese or European cars.

Which way do fans rotate?
What if you're looking it from behind?

As you can tell, I am a little bit ticked off... :cursing: :001_tt2: :D

Two wrong. Got the Campbell's Soup color wrong, missed Blue! And, I thought the FM dial started at 88.7! Got lucky and guessed at the pencil and matches.

RC90, Puerto Rico is a Commonwealth. Along with many other places.
