ALZHEIMERS' EYE TEST

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.

No, the brain tends to process "of" as a single thing rather than two separate letters.

Even though you said there's 6 I went back and counting and was like wtf no. Then I read the brain can't process 'of' and then voilla.

man weird.

what's this got to do with alzheimers? it's just another one of those "people don't read in an obvious way" things.

Same here. That was quite interesting, and fairly annoying.

Edit: In my defence, I just woke up after only 4 hours sleep.

I got 6 because I rock so hard, where as you all sux (and I've seen this thing so many times that I know to look where F's aren't expected).

perhaps it's called alzheimers because alzheimer discovered this phenomenon

I got 6, because I paid attention.

I did it before and I think I got 5 or something, which is weird.

I've done something like this before. at some point you know you've just got to pay attention, also to the little words.

6, but I've done similar ones. Or maybe even this one before.

I've done this before and only got 3 the first time.

But for some reason, I can only find 5, I can't find the sixth.

Edit: I missed that last "of".

Well, thanks for beating me to that joke.

Actually, I counted 5, because I've seen this so many times before. Also, I missed the last "of".

Dammit, I only missed one. I got five. At least I'm not completly retarded.

So what exactly's the Alzheimers level? If we get 4 or less, we're going to die shitting and dribbling, but if we get 5, we can continue on without worrying about degenerative brain disease?

Lemme guess, you missed the last "of"?

GreenTerror
03-08-2006, 06:05 PM
Most likely. It probably was one of those gay "of"s. Of should be spelled "Ov". Not like "Off". There's so many things in this language that make no sense.

Sinister

There's so many things in this language that make no sense.

Try learning French, you'll see it makes far less sense. On a kinda related note, people who say "of" instead of "have" ("I would of done so and so...") irritate me to no end, and I don't even understand why they do it.

At least around here, there's a logical explanation.

See, in my regional accent, words in the middle of the sentences run together. For example, in "See, in my regional accent", letters get missed out - so it'd be "See, inmy regiona' accen' ". As such, when one says "have" in the middle of a sentence, it becomes "aff", with flattened v's. Therefore it sounds a lot like "of".

Blah. I coulden't imagine the complications of know 2 different languages. I have enough problems with English. And plus, I'm too lazy and can't stay focused long enough to even attempt to learn a second language.

All About Eve
03-08-2006, 06:12 PM
Same here, dave. 'Of' is more likely to resemble 'uh'.

I guess that makes me the resident dummy. I got 3 the first time, 5 the 2nd & 3rd times and finally got it. :(

I counted 4 the first time. Then, before reading further, I counted again twice and only found 3.

Then, I read again, and I had to go achingly slow to recognize of.

I'm not sure if this is quite impressive or if it just has more to do the fact that I'm running on only three hours of sleep.

Do you suppose it's because we pronounce it "uv" instead of "uf"?
