8. Aware enough to know you typed "How aware OF you?"
instead of "ARE you."

Oh, that wasn't part of the test? Dang.

10. I've even seen a different version of this in an old pschology
film/experiment. I knew something like this could happen, and I STILL missed it.

Maybe that's why * never found his WMDs.

11. I've seen something almost identical done before.
Edited on Sat Mar-15-08 04:29 PM by DarkTirade
So I caught it.

But if I hadn't seen it done before, I probably wouldn't have. I sure as hell didn't catch it the last time. :) Had to reload that one too to make sure they weren't just screwing with us the second time 'round.

13. I'm a guy, so according to my wife, I am completely oblivious.
I can come home, and she could have re-pained the living room, rearranged the furniture, and put new pictures and decorations on the walls and a new rug on the floor...and I wouldn't even notice.

24. Me too.
As soon as that bloody bear strolled through, I completely lost count. I probably have ADD and --- Oh look! A squirrel!
