    Default I got 17 Right :)

    This is based on US &CDN info, so use all lobes of your brain. There are 27 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 and then check your answers (on the bottom) only
    AFTER completing all the questions.
    REMEMBER - NO CHEATING!!! --- BE HONEST!!! That means no looking at your phone or anything on your desk....

    LET'S JUST SEE HOW OBSERVANT YOU REALLY ARE.

    Woo-hoo!

    21 out of 27


    Fortunately, 2 of those questions are about Canadian money. Maybe
    we should change those $ questions to flag questions, eg.
    what country has a white plus-sign cross on a red square background?

    Actually, on cellphones that's different. My cell now has Q and Z
    under the 1 (for SMS). So technology is making these questions
    obsolete.

    (And they re-design Canadian money every three years; it wouldn't
    surprise me if they take the Schooner off the dime next time around.)
