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

Follow the instructions! NO PEEKING AHEAD!

* 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).

1. Think of a number from 1 to 10

2. Now, multiply that number by 9

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

4. Now subtract 5 from the result.

5. Determine which letter in the alphabet corresponds to the number you
ended up with (for example: 1=a, 2=b, 3=c,etc.)

6. Think of a country that starts with that letter

7. Remember the last letter of the name of that country

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

9. Remember the last letter in the name of that animal

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

Now select the hidden text between the 'v''s and the '^''s to find out whether I know what you will be thinking !
Are you thinking of a Kangaroo in Denmark eating an Orange?
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.
This is what I got...I am the 2% I guess!

A Cheap Bird's Plea

Raechelle's budgie, Gizmo.

A Cheap Bird's Plea
by Joyce Glass

What is it that my life is worth

How much will you pay

To what extent would you go

If I get ill today?

I know I'm not an expensive bird

My cost is fairly cheap

But what is the price you put on life

For something that you keep?

My wings still spread out the same

My heart still has a beat

So why is it that my cousins

Are the ones you hold so sweet?

I cannot help that I was born

Without a golden egg

Will you still take care of me

Or make me plead and beg?

I rely on you to help me

As I can't do it for myself

Will you take the steps needed

Or just put me on the shelf?

So when you walk by me

Please look me in the eye

If it would come down to it

Would I live or die?
