This is freaky, follow the directions:

Jedi Mind Trick

This little Jedi mind trick is kinda freaky, till you think
it a little while. Then it's even more weird. Just follow
the
instructions below: DON'T scroll down too fast-do it slowly
and follow
fast as
you can.

instructions one at a time and as QUICKLY as you can!

What is:

2+2?

4+4?

8+8?

6+16?

Quick! Pick a number between 12 and 5.

Got it?

Now scroll down...

The number you picked was 7, right?

Isn't that weird???

Free will or synaptic wiring? You be the judge. Check out
the
following exercise, guaranteed to freak you out. There's no
trick or
questions one
at a time and as quickly as you can! Again, as quickly as
you can but
don't advance until you've done each of them...really. Now,
ARROW down
but not too fast, you might miss something)...

What is:

1+5

2+4

3+3

4+2

5+1

Now repeat saying the number 6 to yourself as fast as you
can for 15
seconds. Then scroll down.

QUICK!!! THINK OF A VEGETABLE! Then arrow down.

Keep going.

You're thinking of a carrot right? If not, you're among the
2% of the
opulation whose minds are warped enough to think of
something else.
98% of people will answer with carrot when given this
exercise.
Freaky, huh?

Here is another one

DON'T CHEAT BY SCROLLING DOWN FIRST!
It only takes 30 seconds. Work this out as you read. Don't
bottom until you've worked it out!

1. First of all, pick the number of days a week that you
would like to
eat out.

2. Multiply this number by 2.

4. Multiply it by 50.

If you
haven't,

6. Last step: Subtract the four digit year that you were
born.

SEE BELOW

You should now have a three digit number:

The first digit of this was your original number (i.e. how
many times
you want to go out each week).

The second two digits are your age!!
