ALZHEIMER'S EYE TEST
Count every "F" in the following text:
FINISHED FILES ARE THE RESULT OF YEARS OF SCIENTIFIC STUDY COMBINED WITH THE EXPERIENCE OF YEARS..... (SEE BELOW)
HOW MANY 'F's?
Count them again.
WRONG, THERE ARE 6 -- no joke..
READ IT AGAIN !
Really, go back and try to find the 6 'F's before you scroll down.
The reasoning behind this is ..........
The brain cannot process "OF".
F INISHED F ILES ARE THE RE SULT O F YEARS O F SCIENTI F IC STUDY COMBINED WITH THE EXPERIENCE O F YEARS.....
Anyone who counts all 6 'F's on the first go is a genius. It is your turn to see how many of your friends belong in an old age home! ..
Three is normal , four is quite rare.
Send this to your (older!) friends. It will drive them crazy.... And keep them occupied For several minutes....
--------------------------------------------------------- CALLER: Is this Gordon's Pizza?
GOOGLE: No sir, it's Google Pizza.
CALLER: I must have dialed a wrong number. Sorry.
GOOGLE: No sir, Google bought Gordons Pizza last month
CALLER: OK. I would like to order a pizza.
GOOGLE: Do you want your usual, sir?
CALLER: My usual? You know me?
GOOGLE: According to our caller ID data sheet, the last 12 times you called you ordered an extra-large pizza with three cheeses, sausage, pepperoni, mushrooms and meatballs on a thick crust.
CALLER: OK! Thats what I want
GOOGLE: May I suggest that this time you order a pizza with ricotta, arugula, sun-dried tomatoes and olives on a whole wheat gluten-free thin crust?
CALLER: What? I detest vegetable!.
GOOGLE: Your cholesterol is not good, sir.
CALLER: How the HECK do you know!
GOOGLE: Well, we cross-referenced your home phone number with your medical records. We have the result of your blood tests for the last 7 years.
CALLER: Okay, but I do not want your rotten vegetable pizza! I already take medication for my cholesterol.
GOOGLE: Excuse me sir, but you have not taken your medication regularly. According to our database, you only purchased a box of 30 cholesterol tablets once, at Drug RX Network, 4 months ago.
CALLER: I bought more from another drugstore.
GOOGLE: That doesnt show on your credit card statement.
CALLER: I paid in cash.
GOOGLE: But you did not withdraw enough cash according to your bank statement.
CALLER: I have other sources of cash.
GOOGLE: That doesnt show on your last tax return unless you bought them using an undeclared income source, which is against the law.
CALLER: WHAT THE HECK!!!
GOOGLE: I'm sorry, sir, we use such information only with the sole intention of helping you.
CALLER: Enough already! I'm sick to death of Google, Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp and all the others. I'm going to an island without internet, or cable TV, where there is no cell phone service and no one to watch me or spy on me.
GOOGLE: I understand sir, but you need to renew your passport first. It expired 6 weeks ago
“Anyone who counts all 6 ‘F’s on the first go is a genius.”
I’m a genius!
Really like your stuff, btw.
Giggles help with the gruesomes;)
I got all 6 but I had to go back over it and look for that last one, almost missed it.
2nd story is great...
And now a couple of octogenarian one liners...
I want to die peacefully in my sleep like Grandpa ...not screaming, like the passengers in his car
I’m too old to worry about whether or not I’m a pain in your ass...
Even if the voices aren’t real... they still have some pretty good ideas.
Hey, I’m vertical and breathing, that’s all I need to accomplish for one day...
WOW, cannot wait to tell my wife she is talking to a genius and not a dumb shiite.
There are cruelly 8.
I am only rare.4 were obvious but I missed the “oF”.
Au contraire...rather, the accomplished and prolific reader has refined their brain to the point that non-essential words (such as "of") are automatically filled in as the reader processes the sentences.
That, thereby, allows the reader to absorb and process much more relevant words and becomes even smarter, while the dummy that sees every "f" becomes mired in mediocrity.
(Sounds legit to me.)
“OF” is a word with no information content, and is easily overlooked.
I actually got 5 of them first time.
Sodpoodle, if I may ask, what gruesomes are you dealng with?
I’m a genius too, then, or the creator of the test is a presumptuous nitwit.
I got all 6, but I am a life long bookkeeper & used to details.
Got all 6, but I didn’t read the text or look at the words. (I have no idea what it said.) Just looked for Fs.
Regarding the pizza, I'm surprised they didn't suggest adding a large dollop of prunes on the top of their suggested pizza, as they noticed with their drone cameras that the old guy wasn't producing in a normal, regular fashion!
I had no trouble finding 6 the first go-round & I’m 81. Guess Alzheimers is a ways off.
The trick to editing text is to start at the end and “read” backwards. This keeps you from anticipating the next letter or word. As a technical illustrator I have picked up a few tricks from technical writers and editors.
