# Brain Tickle Test

## Recommended Posts

Scroll down slowly and answer each question one at a time.

Think of a number from 1 to 10.

Multiply that number by 9.

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

Subtract 5.

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

Think of a country that starts with that letter.

Remember the last letter of the name of that country.

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

Remember the last letter in the name of that animal.

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

Are you thinking of a kangaroo in Denmark eating an orange?

No.

Then post your answer or else just sit there and be a jerk-like person.

Let's see...

Think of a number from 1 to 10.

2.7182818284590452353602874713527

Multiply that number by 9.

24.464536456131407118242587242174

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

Subtract 5.

19.464536456131407118242587242174

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

I guess I'll have to round it off to an integer then... let's see, 19, that makes 'S'.

Think of a country that starts with that letter.

Sweden.

Remember the last letter of the name of that country.

'N'.

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

Hmm... nabarlek. (I had to look that up).

Remember the last letter in the name of that animal.

Yeah... 'k'

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

That'd be a kiwi.

Are you thinking of a kangaroo in Denmark eating an orange?

Nope.

Weird, I was thinking about Denmark..
Instead of a Kangaroo I was thinking of a Kingfish, allthough I'm not even sure if such an animal exists. How does this test work?

How am I being a jerk? No, i wasn't thinking of kangaroos. Hence, "No."

It's supposed to work in that most normal people will think of a WHOLE number between 1 and 10, which will lead to a country beginning with D (Denmark), which leads to a kangaroo which leads to an orange.

But I guess since the DW forum members are disproportionately susceptible to mental disorders and bouts of insanity, the results will likely differ greatly from the norm.

You are keeyyy-rrreect.

It's all I ever think about!

Kangaroos do not eat oranges:
Most kangaroos are exclusively plant-eaters, with grasses forming the bulk of their diet. They also feed on moisture-filled succulent plants. Only the musky rat kangaroo eats insects and worms as well.

Not true. It's been statistically and gyromatically proven that a kangaroo locked in a cage wtih an orange will attempt to eat the orange within 8 days 9 times out of 10.

5
5x9 = 45
4+5 = 9
9-5 = 4
4 = D
D -> Djbouti
I -> Iguana
A -> Apple

An iguana in Djbouti eating an apple...

I've seen this before a long time ago, and the last time I had:

A koala in Denmark eating an apricot...

I had a Kiwi from Denmark eating a fruit beginning with I. Except I can't come up with one.

An Ipple.

Or, if you want a real fruit, try Imbu.

OK.

Think of a number from 1 to 10.

4.

Multiply that number by 9.

36.

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

9.

Subtract 5.

4.

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

D=4.

Think of a country that starts with that letter.

Uh....well, I'll take a wild stab at imagination and say...DENMARK.

Remember the last letter of the name of that country.

K.

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

Heh, koala.

Remember the last letter in the name of that animal.

A.

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

Apple.

Are you thinking of a kangaroo in Denmark eating an orange?

No, I'm thinking of a koala in Denmark eating an apple. :P

That seems to be the 2nd most common choice. This thing originally came with text saying that 98% of people will pick Denmark, kangaroo and orange. That of course is ridiculously stupid and false, so I removed it.

Once I saw the multiply by nine part I realized what was going on.

Denmark, krill, and I couldn't think of any fruit that starts with an L. Leeks? Lentils? Legumes? Linguica?

Yes. Apparently, I am "normal".

According to this test anyways...

ran into some problems as I choose kolibri... any fruits on i?

See my previous post, but if you don't want that, use ilama.

Lemon? Lime? :P

Yeah i've seen this kind of test before.

I got : Denmark, Kiwi, idontknowafruitstartingwithi.

Heh.

Am I the only one who did end up with a kangaroo in Denmark eating an orange?

For anyone who's curious why you always get the number 4, here's my attempt to answer it:

9x

Which is the same as:
10x-x

Which also is the same as:
x(10-1)

Which can be expressed like this as well:
10(x-1)+(10-x)

What we have here is the expression for the two digits, the first one is 10(x-1) and the second one is (10-x). Note that this only applies to base 10 and if x was bigger than 9, we would get more than two digits so this trick wouldn't work.

Anyway, to add the two digits together, we must give them the same base (the second digit is worth 10 times more than the first in base 10). So we divide the first digit by 10 and get:
(x-1)+(10-x)

Without parentheses:
x-1+10-x

Or, simply:
-1+10 = 9

And we subtract 5
9 - 5 = 4

I hope this is correct.

I HATE MATH!!

Here's a quik-n-dirty explaination: When you multiply a one-digit number by nine, the digits of the number will always add up to nine. It's part of one of those quirks of the base-10 number system that makes me wonder if the world works a little too neatly.

Sort of like, if the sum of the digits in a number is divisible by 3, the number itself will be divisible by 3.

Speaking of 3, thanks to Fredrik for the grade 3 arithmetic lesson.

You're welcome.

Denmark, Koala, Apricot. Boo-yah.

But my girl hit that on the head.
