1. 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...
HOW MANY ?
WRONG, THERE ARE 6 -- no joke.
READ IT AGAIN !
Really, go Back and Try to find the 6 Fs before you scroll down.
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.

2 mind bogglers (literally)
Nothing political here, but a co-worker forwarded this to me, then came into my office to make sure that I saw it, so we're calling it "local interest." Both VoU bloggers were fooled by the first one, and amazed by the second.
