    Good thread Prophet. Here is another one that escapes most people. Look at the pick of the Fedex truck. Do you see the arrow? Look between the E and X and note the arrow. After noticing this you will see it right away every time you see the Fedex truck. Funny how simple things escape our minds but once pointed out you can't miss them.

    Re: How observant are you?

    Your answers 15 & 16 are flipped.

    15 should be left & 16 should be 8.

    Otherwise, I only missed 3, 22 correct. Numbers 5, 9 & 21.

    I said clockwise for #14, but ceiling fans can actually run either direction.

    Oops, fixed the answer key. I had 20 correct, 21 if I give myself credit for the ceiling fan question.

    Just shows you how observant I am! :grin:

    Also, #10 can go either way. In the southern half of the globe, like in Australia, the correct answer would be counter-clockwise.

    #13 Depends on if your looking at the blouse or wearing it.

    #15 If your country reads from right to left, the answer would be reversed.

    #20 I still can't figure out why hot dogs come in packages of 10 & buns in packages of 8.

    You have to buy 4 pkgs. of buns. & 5 pkgs of dogs to equal them out.

    And ceiling fans can got either way depending if you are trying to draw air up or push it down. In fact, all the fans in my house have reversing switches on them and I think most do.
