Read the following sentence only once:


FINISHED FILES ARE THE RE-
SULT OF YEARS OF SCIENTIF-
IC STUDY COMBINED WITH
THE EXPERIENCE OF YEARS.


Now count aloud the F's in that sentence. Count
them ONLY ONCE: do not go back and count them again!!!
See below.....................


















ANSWER:
There are six F's in the sentence. One of average
intelligence finds three of them. If you spotted four,
you're above average. If you got five, you can turn
your nose at most anybody. If you caught six, you
are a genius. There is no catch. Many people forget
the "OF"'s. The human brain tends to see them as
"V's" Pretty weird, huh?
