Thursday Thirteen #4




First of all - thanks for visiting last week. I wanted to tell you that the little colored tomatoes were de-li-cious!

And now for something completely different ...

Todays Thursday Thirteen is a little test and a great exercise for your brain. If you want to participate, take a piece of paper before reading on - just a normal sheet - and a pen, and get ready to flex those brain-muscles. This test is time limited. You've got 2 minutes, so set your alarm-clock and be honest ;) Got everything? Then go:
  1. Read through all the instructions before you do anything!
  2. Write your first and your last name in the upper right corner of the sheet.
  3. Draw 5 small squares on the upper part of the sheet.
  4. Pencil a * (star) into each suare.
  5. Sign the sheet with your last name in the lower right corner.
  6. Turn the sheet upside down and write down your date of birth.
  7. Put the sheet back in to normal position and write your first loves name underneath the squares.
  8. Write the letter "X" into the lower left corner of the sheet.
  9. Draw a circle around the "X" you've just written.
  10. Use the lower part of the sheet to solve the following calculation: 6+9-3x3-17
  11. Underline the result twice.
  12. Now add together all the numbers on your sheet (don't forget you brith date!)
  13. And now, after you've first of all read all the instructions, just do what you are asked for in point No.2 !

I hope you enjoyed the test and succeeded in passing it :)
Happy TT!

Luv Julia

CUTE! I'd seen it before, but I bet a lot of people go through the motions before they read it all LOL!

I first saw that a few years ago and was completely taken in by it!

I remember a teacher handing out something like this as a test - years and years ago. I failed!

Ack! I got halfway through before I remembered instruction #1! At least I didn't get all the way to the end.

I'm embarrased to say that I was confused at first. I took reading the other comments to realize what I had done. Oy vey!

Jaya said...

Yay! For once I read the instructions first!

I just wanted to let you know that I have some bling-bling for you at my place :o)
Have a wonderful weekend!

I saw this before and it's a very good lesson in teaching kids to follow directions. I'm one of those strange people who does what I'm told so I did read this all the way through as instructed when I first came across it.

Angie said...

I remember this from high school. I was one of the few that didn't do the whole thing!

I got caught by this many years ago, around 1977... my junior high American history teacher was fed up with our class not listening to instructions so he gave us like a 300-question test like this. I failed. However, it did teach me a lesson, and you didn't get me today, ha ha ha!
