Observant little ...

I don't understand the answer, but I may have some ideas on the question...


I came across this test here when I was checking my referrals and we were both listed in the same search.


1. On a standard traffic light, is the green on the top or bottom?
2. How many states are there? (Don't laugh, some people don't know)
3. In which hand is the Statue of Liberty's torch?
4. What six colours are on the classic Campbell's soup label?
5. What two numbers on the telephone dial don't have letters by them?
6. When you walk does your left arm swing with your right or left leg?
7. How many matches are in a standard pack?
8. On the United States flag is the top stripe red or white?
9. What is the lowest number on the FM dial?
10. Which way does water go down the drain, counter or clockwise?
11. Which way does a "no smoking" sign's slash run?
12. How many channels on a VHF TV dial?
13. On which side of a women's blouse are the buttons?
14. Which way do fans rotate?
15. What is on the back of a Canadian dime?
16. How many sides does a stop sign have?
17. Do books have even-numbered pages on the right or left side?
18. How many lug nuts are on a standard car wheel?
19. How many sides are there on a standard pencil?
20. Sleepy, Happy, Sneezy, Grumpy,Dopey, Doc. Who's missing?
21. How many hot dog buns are in a standard package?
22. On which playing card is the card maker's trademark?
23. On which side of a Venetian blind is the cord that adjusts the opening between the slats?
24. On the back of a Canadian $1 coin, what is in the centre?
25. There are 12 buttons on a touch tone phone. What 2 symbols bear no digits?
26. How many curves are there in the standard paper clip?
27. Does a merry-go-round turn counter or clockwise?

Don't look at answers below until you complete all the questions.

1. Bottom
2. 50 (please tell me you got this one!)
3. Right
4. Blue, red, white, yellow, black, & gold
5. 1, 0
6. Right
7. 20
8. Red
9. 88
10. Clockwise (north of the equator)
11. Towards bottom right
12. 12 (no #1)
13. Left /
14. Clockwise as you look at it
15. The Bluenose
16. 8
17. Left
18. 5
19. 6
20. Bashful
21. 8
22. Ace of spades
23. Left
24. Loon
25. *, #
26. 3
27. Counter

I guess I really am observant. I got a score of 21. The only questions I got wrong are 2, 4, 10, 15, 21, and 24. And considering they are all very American-centric, I'm not surprised. I thought there were 52 states in America for some reason. I have no idea what a classic Campbell's soup label looks like. I thought water drained out a bath counter-clockwise (or does it in the southern hemisphere?). I couldn't even take a guess at what's on the back of Canadian coins because I've never seen one. And I don't know what "The Bluenose" is anyway. But I do know what a loon is, it's a bird. A sea bird if memory serves. Is that the same loon they're talking about that's on the Canadian coin? And the packets of hot-dog buns that I've bought have always had 6 buns in them. *shrugs*

And thinking of my referrals, who the hell is this chick (I don't want to mention her name in case I get even more referrals from people looking for her) and why do so many people seem to find my site when they are looking for her? And why are they looking for her? Is she a porn star or something? *sigh*

you're off the hook on the plughole thing - it goes the other way around in the northern hemisphere (I saw it on The Simpsons once...)
