    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

    Can you beat 20?? It is nearly impossible for any normal person to get higher than a 20 (The average is 7). Write down your answers and check answers (on the bottom) AFTER completing all t he questions.

    REMEMBER - NO CHEATING!!! BE HONEST!!! That means no looking at your phone or anything on your desk...

    Then, before you repost this, change the number on the subject line to show how many you got correct.

    have fun!
