Had a fun time in the arcade and class today. Also had a test about Malaysia. Zzz. There's something called Rukun Negara, the National Principles or something like that. On a question asking for two of the principles, EVERYONE put belief in God and loyalty to king and country. LOL! If I was an atheist I wouldn't have put belief in God. Since I'm a Christian though...
Anyhoo, I just got this email and I feel so retarded! Let's see how smart you are! And don't cheat! You'll just spoil the fun for yourself.
TEST FOR DEMENTIA
Below are four questions and a bonus question. You have to answer them instantly. You can't take your time, answer all of them immediately. Let's find out just how clever you really are.
1) You are participating in a race. You overtake the second place person. What position are you in?
Answer: If you answered that you are first, then you are wrong! If you overtake the second place person, and you take their place, you are second!
To answer the second question, don't take as much time as you took for the first question.
2) If you are in a race, and you overtake the last person, then you are?
Answer: If you answered that you are second to last, then you are wrong again. Tell me, how can you overtake the LAST person?! You're not having a good time at this! Are you?
Very tricky math! Note: This must be done in your head only. Do NOT use paper and pencil or a calculator. Try it.
3) Take 1000 and add 40 to it. Now add another 1000. Now add 30. Add another 1000. Now add 20. Now add another 1000. Now add 10. What is the total?
Answer: Did you get 5000? The correct answer is actually 4100. Don't believe it? Check with your calculator!
Today is definitely not your day. Maybe you will get the last question right?
4) Mary's father has five daughters: 1. Nana, 2. Nene, 3. Nini, 4. Nono. What is the name of the fifth daughter?
Answer: Nunu? NO! Of course not. Her name is Mary. Read the question again!
Okay, now the bonus round. You can partially redeem yourself with this one!
Bonus: There is a mute person who wants to buy a toothbrush. By imitating the action of brushing one's teeth he successfully expresses himself to the shopkeeper and the purchase is done. Now if there is a blind man who wishes to buy a pair of sunglasses, how should he express himself?
Answer: He just has to open his mouth and ask. He's blind, not mute - so simple.
KEEP THIS GOING TO FRUSTRATE THE "SMART PEOPLE" IN YOUR LIFE!
HAHA! Geez... I felt so retarded! I only answered the 3rd and 4th questions correctly. I got everything else wrong =/.
