    Count every "F" in the following text:

    FINISHED FILES ARE THE RE
    SULT OF YEARS OF SCIENTI
    FIC STUDY COMBINED WITH
    THE EXPERIENCE OF YEARS...
    (SEE BELOW)






    HOW MANY ?




    ...................... 3?


    WRONG, THERE ARE 6 -- no joke.
    READ IT AGAIN !


    The reasoning behind is further down.




    The brain cannot process "OF".

    Incredible or what? Go back and look again!!



    Anyone who counts all 6 "F's" on the first go is a genius.
    Three is normal, four is quite rare.
     
  2. I have heard that one before and I still only counted four on the first try.:eek:

    Funny how the brain can fool you.

    I knew it was a trick thing too, and I very carefully counted 3 both times before checking the answer. :confused:
    It's not a .gif file either, too bad, that would explain it !! :eek:
     
  4. I tried three times and come up with 5 but..... if u say so! :D

    You might be right, there might be an "f" on the end of Scientific where they split it on the drop down, there was some mess on the letter I copied, so I deleted it, I'll have to check.

    Nope, that's not it, there's a third OF in the last line, this is the first time I saw it....wow !!

    Part of what they do is begin by asking us to look for an "F" (capitol) then they throw in some lower case but have 3 F's in caps.
