4.


Neighbor: "Can't you give me a hint?"

Noah: "You want a hint?"

Neighbor: "Yes please."

Noah: "How long can you tread water?"


I used to sink like a stone too. Not so much anymore.

You passed my test, very good!

Perfect from me. I did some screen-tilting for insurance.

Heh. You apparently have not seen many recent pictures of me.

I'm going to the pool tomorrow, and will see how much easier it is to float.

I got a 34. Clearly my eyesight is horrible. My stepbrother got a perfect score.

38. Now let the disclaimers begin...
It was late.
I was tired.
My screen contrast isn't that good.
This test was dumb!
Okay. 38 isn't terrible...

I got 8

My 9 y.o. son (who is colorblind) scored 98

My wife thought I was cruel to make him take the test...

eta:

At the suggestion of my wife, I took the test again. After I had all the squares in the correct order (at least as far as I could tell) I moved the left-most square in each row to the far right, effectively shifting all the remaining squares one space to the left.

My wife wanted to know if scoring was based on a squares position in the grid or if scoring was based on a squares position relative to its neighbors.

I scored 422 and the results graph was all flat except for 4 bars (evenly spaced across the graph) at 100% and 4 bars (similarly spaced) at 50%. My guess is that scoring is based on relative position.

I scored 25 with my browser at its default settings and 0 when I blow the image up a couple of steps. I tried both ways a couple of times and its reproducible. When I was working with the smaller screen, the regions where I made the most areas were not reproducible.

Well, I just tried floating on my back.

Even at 250 lb., I couldn't do it. I couldn't do it. If I held my breath, my body would sink until pretty much the only thing above the water was my face. Then as soon as I took even a small breath, I sank completely under.

16. Better than I thought I'd do.

And WAAAAY better than I'd do if they were expecting me to name the colors.

7, which is vastly better than I expected and also better than I felt like I was doing.

I got an 8 which surprised me, I've always thought my color perception sucked. Plus I rushed the last two because I have a bit of a nagging headache at the moment.

I was going to take the test but I got tired of trying to distinguish hues after only about 10 moves.
