How Observant Are You?

How Observant Are You?
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!
Except paper to write your answers down on....



Can you beat 23?? (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 RE ALLY ARE.
Here we go!


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)

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 State s flag is the top stripe red or white?


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


10. Which way does water go down the drain, counter or clockwise?


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


12. How many channels on a VHF TV dial?


13 On which side of a women's blouse are the buttons?


14. Which way do fans rotate?


15 How many sides does a stop sign have?


16. Do books have even-numbered pages on the right or left side?


17 How many lug nuts are on a standard car wheel?


18. How many sides are there on a standard pencil?


19. Sleepy, Happy, Sneezy, Grumpy, Dopey, Doc. Who's missing?


20. How many hot dog buns are in a standard package?

opening between the slats?

18 Right (and I`m a UKer), although the Telephone and FM radio stuff was a No-Brainer for me, those are pretty universal.

I got 16. It woulda been a couple more had I thought a bit more. You folks that got 23 or 24 must be either very observant or had your best guesses come through for you .

I actually got 5 out of 6 of the soup can colors. Who knew they'd have gold AND yellow?!?
