Count the number of 'F' in the following text:
  
  
FINISHED FILES ARE THE RESULT OF YEARS OF SCIENTIFIC STUDY COMBINED WITH THE EXPERIENCE OF YEARS


Managed it? Scroll down slowly only after you have counted them! OK?

How many? Three?

Wrong, there are six - no joke! Read again! The reasoning is further down...

The brain cannot process "OF".  Incredible or what?
Anyone who counts all six 'F' on the first go is a genius -  three is normal, four quite rare.
  
ahhhh the human mind...

I actually got 6 the first time, but I'm sure that I'm not a genius!

Well it's no wonder you're all Moderators, each one of you is a genius..

But did you all carefully count them or read it as normal?

My dear, RainbowGirl,

Well I got 3, and I am Blonde and loving it, I just found all your lovely blonde jokes, in fact me and my daughter went back like two months to find more, we had the greatest time this morning, have not done that much laughing in a long time, thank you so much.

Oh ya, my blonde is half and half/ part me part bottle, hehe

Love, Cerenity

Hmmmmm....so only Nan and I got it right....*g* ooops, I mean the study anticipated us well...LOL

I wonder if it has something to do with how fast you read, or perhaps we automatically insert words that will make a sentence make sense so discount them....I'm trying here...*g*

Corazon, Course you're a genius, we all are in our own exceptional ways...

Cerenity: Glad you and your daughter enjoyed the jokes...

Sudhir:  ROFL, you're a nut and that's for sure...LOL

HUGS all and thanks for taking part..
