It's EYE EXAM time! (Take the test!)
Quick eye exam, DO NOT CHEAT AND READ DOWN!!!!!!!!!!

This will blow your mind...!
Just do it - don't cheat!!!

Count the number of F's in the following text:

FINISHED FILES ARE THE
RESULT OF YEARS OF SCIENTIFIC
STUDY COMBINED WITH THE
EXPERIENCE OF YEARS.

Managed it?

Scroll down only after you have counted them!

OK?

How many?

Three?

Wrong, there are six -
Read again!

FINISHED FILES ARE THE
RESULT OF YEARS OF SCIENTIFIC
STUDY COMBINED WITH THE
EXPERIENCE OF YEARS

The reasoning is further down...

The brain cannot process the word "OF".

Incredible or what?

Anyone who counts all six F's on the first go is a pompus asshole!
Three is normal

3. darn, I counted 6
when it said "count the number of F's" I started reading the paragraph backwards - an editing trick. It forces you to look at spelling rather than just reading.

6. But getting three twice equals six


Shouldn't there be seven, counting the first 'f' in "F's" ;)
