    Are you the weakest link?
    There are three questions below.
    You have to answer them instantly.
    You can not take your time.
    Answer all of them immediately.

    Think you are clever, maybe a genius?

    1) You are participating in a race. You overtake the second person. What position are you in?

    If you answer that you are first, well, you are WRONG! If you overtake the second person and you take his place, you are second!

    Don't hestitate on the second question,

    If you overtake the last person, then you are . . . ?

    A2) If you answered that you are second to last, then you are wrong again. Tell me, how can you overtake the LAST person?

    Q3) Very tricky, you think? You can not use pen/pencil and paper or a caculator. This must be done using your head.

    Take 1000 and add 40 to it. Now add another 1000.
    Now add 30. Add another 1000. Now add 20.
    Now add another 1000.
    Now add 10.
    What is the total?
    Scroll on down . . .

    A3) Did you get 5000? If you did, well, you are WRONG! The correct answer is actually 4100. Oh, you think I'm lying huh? Check your caculator. Check the decimal sequence, it confuses your brain, which is always going to jump to the highest decimals ( 100s instead of 10s ).

    Almost as humiliating as meeting Anne Robinson!

    Just to get can overtake the last person in a race, e.g. on a circular running track , but technically youd still be in the same position!!
