This is awsome

Okay. Magic time.


Say each of these math problem's answers out loud

5+1

7-1

4+2

10-4


Now say the word "six" out loud continously for 15 seconds.



Now think of a vegitable.


















































Is that vegitable "carrot"?

Aaarrgghh!!

I heard a variation of that one a couple of years ago....and said parsnip that time.....this time I though turnip.

Does that make me in the 2% who are "brilliant" or am I just a disagreeable troublemaker?

Probably the latter

Ohh. You've heard this before. For thoughs of you who haven't, here's the trick: 98% of people in the world associate the number 6 with the word "carrot". Try it. Science is fun!

Oh. And by the way, Roy...

Aren't Parsnips, carrots and Turnips all from the same vegetable family though?

Maybe I just don't like orange!!

I like the one where you get someone to say "White" like 10 times fast then ask them what cows drink. They'll tell you milk. It's pretty fun.


Just because people think what I say don't make sense, doesn't mean I don't like popsicles.

Probably because "six" sounds like "sex", especially if you say it over and over again for 15 seconds, and a carrot kinda looks like a, well, you know. There are alternatives, but I guess the carrot most potent in people's minds and so the one you go for first. Or something.

'Looks like'...pull the other one. So you've introduced carrots into the bedroom Gabez? Is the missus pleased?

I actually couldn't think of any vegetable at all after I did it, and I figured that was the trick. When I got one, it was cauliflower too.

I'm gonna try that one out tonight

Who's screwing a carrot?

I think it's something to do with the letter C. See, Six, Six, See....

I mean, I tried it with my mother and the first thing she thought was "Cabbage" (Although she changed her mind and made it Carrot). And then there's cauliflower. Hmmm. Hmmmmm. HMMMMMMMMM..


You might recognise me.
