This is based on U.S. info, so use all lobes of
your brain. This can be more difficult than it
looks - it just shows how little most of us
really see!

There are 25 questions about things we see every
day or have known about all our lives. How many
can you get right? These little simple questions
are harder than you think-- it just shows you how
little we pay attention to the commonplace things
of life.

Put your thinking caps on. No cheating! No
looking around! No getting out of your chair!
No using anything on or in your desk or computer!


Can you beat 20?? (The average is 7) Write down
your answers as you go.

Check answers (on the bottom), AFTER completing
all the questions.


REMEMBER - NO CHEATING!!! BE HONEST!!! That means
no looking at your phone or anything on your
desk...

Although, I disagree with the stop sign question: there are 10 sides. You must include the front and back.

I have an issue with the "dw" question as well. What about the variations of "dwarf" such as dwarfed or dwarves?

Also "dwelling" the noun should be on there as well if variations are not counted.
