Quiz for Easter Sunday

picked this up on Viznine's blogger page -  It was called the Stupid Test and i almost didn't read it for that reason, so i've re-named it the Reading Test as it is testing how carefully you read the questions, not how clever you are. 
i have taken out the snarky rude comments as i was't crazy about the patronising tone and the assumption that we are all thick.  i've added a couple of my own in red.
i have also put the answers on the bottom, not after each question.

The Reading Test!  Here Is A Fun And Real Challenge!

OK. Pay close attention. Here is a very simple little test comprised of four easy question to determine the level of your intellect. See if you have what it takes to be considered smart.
Your replies must be spontaneous and immediate, with no deliberating or wasting of time . and PLEASE no cheating!
On your mark, get set, GO!

1:  You are competing in a race and overtake the runner in second place.
In which position are you now?

2:  If you overtake the last runner, what position are you now in?

Don't take any notes or use a calculator, and remember, your replies must be instantaneous.

3:  Take 1000. Add 40. Add another 1000.
Add 30. 1000 again. Plus 20.
Plus 1000. And plus 10.
What is the total?

4: Marie's father has five daughters:
1. Chacha
2. Cheche
3. Chichi
4. Chocho
5. ?

What is the fifth daughter's name?
Think quickly... you'll find the answer below..


1. If you answered that you're now in first, you're wrong!  You are second.  *Only if you had passed the first runner, would you be first *

If you answered second to last, you are wrong once again.  Think about it...  How can you overtake the person who is last? If you're behind them, they can't be last.  You would have been last.  *Or First place, because you have lapped the field.  If you are so clever, why didn't YOU think of that?*

3. Answered 5000? Wrong.  The correct answer is 4100. Try again with good calculator.  *It's that last 10 that throws you!*

4.  Marie - *This is the 'I Met A Man Going To St Ives' question*

Like i said, quite an interesting little quiz, if you take out all the 'oh-man-you-all-are-so-stupid' comments, which i objected to - before i read the questions!

Enjoy your Easter eggs!

p.s. i like picking up interesting blogs - try Biting Edge by Jeanne C Stein [one of my favourite authors] http://biting-edge.blogspot.com  - oh and talking of favourite authors, did you see where Laurell Hamilton's 'Anita Blake' series is going to TV???   Thought they were anti showing people having lots of sex?  Maybe they are only going to do the first few books!  She has her own blog http://blog.laurellkhamilton.org/

Anita Blake Films... Yay!!

I just hope that they do them justice. I would love to be present for the Micha and Richard interviews - 'could you flex your muscles and act like a lycanthrope... thanks great... now ... how huge is your dick?' *wink*

i hope they do too. It will have to be screened at 9pm for the kiddie watershed, so they could have the sexy bits but i'm betting they'll keep a lot of it down; you know how uptight the Bible Belt can be in the USA.

As for the auditions, i wanna be there for Micah's... *Right... Like we're even going to get a glimpse..*
Don't give a stuff about stupid self-torturing Richard! i always want to slap him and yell, 'Grow-up already! Be a man!' i can understand him wanting Anita for himself alone but he knows about all the metaphysical stuff with Jean-Claude - and the ardeur isn't her doing, it isn't even something that JC wanted her to have. IF he loved her as much as he says he does, he should be totally supportive for her, but oh no, he can't cut her any slack over that. i just wish she'd cut him loose entirely; hell, why would she need that whiner?? She only needs his support for the three-way with JC.
