I will guess your final number. To start, choose a number from 1 to 10!
Then, multiply your number by 9.
Add the digits of your product together (if the number has only one digit, let it be) and then add 4.
Was your final number 13?
(You may have seen this before, but IDC.)
Here's a little game for you. Try to count the number of F's you see in this sentence. Ready? Go.
Ferries from Finland are more professional than ferries of other countries because of Finland's fantastic engineering.
How many F's did you count? Seven? Six? Something else? Well, did you get nine? I suspect not everyone did. That's the correct answer. Why though? It's mainly because we don't count the F's in "of" as F's, because they make a V sound, as opposed to an F sound. This mistake occurs in the temporal lobe, the lobe responsible for audible and launguage comprehension. Your temporal lobe may have used pronunciation over actual spelling. That's why you may have gotten this wrong. For those who passed, congratulations! Maybe your temporal lobe is trained, or you have seen this trick a million times. So, how did you do? Tell me in the comments.
A plane is flying at 20,000 feet over Germany. The plane fatally crashes smack in the middle of "no man's land" between East Germany and West Germany. Where would you bury the survivors? East Germany, West Germany, or no man's land"?
STOP READING ANSWER BELOW
You don't bury survivors.
First, pick a state in the U.S. Any state.
Then, with your state, make sure that the name shares no letter with the word "mackerel". If your state does, switch to another state.
Once you have your state, count how many letters are in the name.
Then, count how many repeating letters are in the name. If there are none, don't do anything.
Then, subtract the amount of repeating letters from the total amount of letters.
Now, you will end up with a number. Keep this number.
Now, I will try to guess what number you have. But, be warned, it might be TWO spooky for you!
