This is strange...can you figure it out?

* 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.

OK Here is the test.......

1. Think of a number from 1 to 10

2. Now, multiply that number by 9

3. If the number is a 2-digit number, add the digits together

4. Now subtract 5 from the result.

5. Determine which letter in the alphabet corresponds to the number you

ended up with

(for example: 1=a, 2=b, 3=c,etc.)

6. Think of a country that starts with that letter

7. Remember the last letter of the name of that country

8. Think of the name of an animal that starts with that letter

9. Remember the last letter in the name of that animal

10. Think of the name of a fruit that starts with that letter

are you thinking of this ??

Are you thingking of....

Are you thinking of a Kangaroo in Denmarkeating 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.
