A little different.

MIND GAME

2% or 98%

This is strange...can you figure it out?

Are you the 2% or 98% of the population?

* Do the following exercise, guaranteed to raise an eyebrow.

* There's no trick or surprise.

* Just follow these instructions, and answer the 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, scroll down (but not too fast, you might miss something).

Think of a number from 1 to 10

Multiply that number by 9

If the number is a 2-digit number, add the digits together

Now subtract 5

Determine which letter in the alphabet corresponds to the number you ended up with

(example: 1=a, 2=b, 3=c,etc.)

Think of a country that starts with that letter

Remember the last letter of the name of that country

Think of the name of an animal that starts with that letter

Remember the last letter in the name of that animal

Think of the name of a fruit that starts with that letter

Are you thinking of a Kangaroo in Denmark eating an Orange?

I told you this was FREAKY!! If not, you're among the 2% of the population whose minds are different enough to think of something else. 98% of people will answer with kangaroos in Denmark when given this exercise.

Keep this message going. This one is actually worth sending on to others. Forward it to people you know so they can find out if they are usual or unusual.

A Dog in Deutschland eating a Grape.

When you multiply any number by 9 and then add the digits together you will always get 9 as the answer. So when you subtract 5 you always get 4. The 4th letter of the alphabet is always D. So most people thinking of a country starting with D would think of Denmark first. then an animal starting with K...Kangaroo and a fruit starting with O...Orange.

But since I like math a lot and I'm a smart ass, and I figured I was supposed to start with Denmark and since I lived in Germany for 2 years, and the Germans call it Deutschland that's what I picked. Ends with a D...Dog, ends with a G...Grape.

What other countries start with a D?
