    I'm beginning to think this test is more for the "common folk" that don't work with as many tools, or the type of tools that we all do.

    I'm sure the common house-wife answer is going to be "hammer" because that's probably the most common thing they might use. Not the same for us. Ah well, I hope more people chime in with what they thought of. /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif

    Blue wrench. I think most of us dont fit the 98% because we are grease monkeys.

    Try this:

    While sitting at your desk, lift your RIGHT foot and rotate it clockwise, then with your RIGHT hand draw a number 6 in the air. Your foot will go counter clockwise and you cant do anything about it.
