    brain teasers

    I'm very bored again so enjoy!!!!!

    1. This is an unusual paragraph. I'm curious how quickly you can
    find out what is so unusual about it? It looks so plain you would
    think nothing was wrong with it! In fact, nothing is wrong with
    it! It is unusual though. Study it, and think about it, but you
    still may not find anything odd. But if you work at it a bit, you
    might find out! Try to do so without any coaching!

    2.Can you name three consecutive days without using the words
    Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, or Sunday

    3. What is black when you buy it, red when you use it, and gray
    when you throw it away?

    The anwsers are below

    There's no cheating i'm be watching you now lol

    1. The letter "e," which is the most common letter in the English
    language, does not appear once in the long paragraph.

    2.Sure you can: Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow!

    3.The answer is Charcoal. In Homer Simpson's
    words: "hmmmm...Barbecue.
    I had to google 'jfgi' to see what it meant. The irony is overwhelming.

    heh I got them all but the last one
    I gotta put together a list of them at some point - I used to do different assesments durring competetions and lateral thinking was a big part of them so I know quite a few.

    /// typical assesment weekend

    6am : woke up given 30mins for shower breakfast
    6:30am tasks start and last all day (everything from absailing, bouldering, etc to assault courses)
    8pm : team building exersises
    11pm : final nighttime physical exercise

    they then would take us in tell us to get showered and changed for bed and come back for cocco. At which point they would start with the brain teasers until like 3am before bed again - by the end of 3 days you were a mental and physical wreck.
