Jedi Mind Trick
This little Jedi mind trick is kinda freaky, till you think about it a little
while. Then it’s even more weird. Just follow the instructions below:
DON’T scroll down too fast-do it slowly and follow the instructions
below exactly, do the math in your head as fast as you can. It may help to
say the answers aloud quietly. FOLLOW these instructions one at a time
and as QUICKLY as you can!
Quick! Pick a number between 12 and 5.
Now scroll down…
The number you picked was 7, right?
Isn’t that weird???
Free will or synaptic wiring? You be the judge.
Check out the following exercise, guaranteed to freak you out. There’s no
trick or surprise. Just follow these instructions, and answer the questions
one at a time and as quickly as you can. Again, as quickly as you can but
don’t advance until you’ve done each of them…really.
Now, ARROW down (but not too fast, you might miss something)…
Now repeat saying the number 6 to yourself as fast as you can for 15
seconds. Then scroll down.
QUICK!!! THINK OF A VEGETABLE! Then arrow down.
You’re thinking of a carrot right?
If not, you’re among the 2% of the population whose minds are warped
enough to think of something else. 98% of people will answer with carrot
when given this exercise. Freaky, huh?
Here is another one
DON’T CHEAT BY SCROLLING DOWN FIRST!! It only takes 30
Work this out as you read. Don’t read the bottom until you’ve worked it
1. First of all, pick the number of days a week that you would like to eat
2. Multiply this number by 2.
3. Add 5.
4. Multiply it by 50.
5. If you have already had your birthday this year add 1748. If you
haven’t, add 1747.
6. Last step: Subtract the four digit year that you were born.
You should now have a three digit number:
The first digit of this was your original number (i.e., how many times you
want to go out each week).
The second two digits are your age!!!
This is the only year (1998) it will ever work, so spread the fun around
while it lasts…
