    Longevity: 73 years

    Reading Speed: You read between 250 - 300 words per minute.

    I only got three questions right on the "how good are you with words?" I panicked when I heard I only had a limited amount of time to figure out synonyms that I had to rearrange the letters into, and I had to guess because I couldn't think. I'm terrible at keeping all the letters while changing the word.

    Hmm. I think those who play Scrabble and Boggle (tiled word games) will have an easier time on that, in that you rotate the letters into common placings and flip around the word. I didn't do that by figuring out the synonyms, but more by rotating the letters.

    *off to find more puzzles*

    Wooo, so many tests! Starting from the start and I'll work my way through most of them because I enjoy tests. Especially fun ones.

    For the Colorz one I got about 52,000 the first time on easy, then 47,797 the second time on hard mode. Not too bad, and I could improve, but it definitely helped saying the colour of the first word out loud. :P

    The sheep reaction time one I got 0.2308 seconds on the second go. Baa!

    More tests coming up! Thanks for this Aelan!

    EDIT: More results!

    1. Lumosity:

    BIRDWATCHING - SCORE: 2480
    83% detection
    22.7 error
    70% Letter ID

    (130)

    MONSTER GARDEN - Score 3900
    memory span is 4.9 items

    (157)

    RAINDROPS - Score 3976
    Speed 30 Very Good
    (82 equations solved)
    Accuracy:
    overall 96% Excellent!
    under pressure 91% Great

    (143)

    Total Score
    143

    Strangely enough, Monster Garden stressed me out the most... I found it the least enjoyable. ^^ Yet Birdwatching I could do again and again! :P

    4. The Room is a little odd, but interesting enough. Although I kept getting distracted by the pictures they put up... ^^

    6. Musical memory... have my iTunes on right now and don't want to turn it off, so I'll do this another day. ^^

    7. This one I'd already seen all those illusions before so I already knew all the answers. :P

    8. Don't have the concentration right now to put my genuine, honest opinions to the test. Another time, maybe.

    9. Taxi Driving, I got 25,693 points first go. Can't decide whether it's better to slow down and not crash or speed up and deal with crashes. ^^

    10. Smash the Froggie: LOL. 280 points. Try again... 300! Haha. I can't work out the end... I kept dying when I jumped onto the land on the other side? Oh well. ^^

    11. Sketch-Pak... 3290 points! ^^ The controls were wierd, though. Delayed a little, or something.

    12. Anti-Pacman... 2240 points! Woo, that was actually kinda fun... Mr. Pacman too clever, though. I had to corner him and wait until one of my other minions wandered around my way and then grab him that way. I found it impossible to catch him with only one ghostie. ^^

    13. Longevity Test... 84 years.

    14. How fast do you read? 400-450 words a minute.

    15. How good are you with words? I got three books, because I guessed the last few. ^^ Ah well.

    And now for the stress-relieving ones.

    Catch the eggs from the rabid chicken

    Texas shoot-out

    And my favourite time waster:
    Paper aeroplane!.

    How far can you throw it? I reached 43.357m. Tips. Avoid the fan, and aim out of the window.

    Can we post our scores for the more personality-ish tests here?

    The Room:

    The Window: Your Attitude
    Your choice of the "rainbow" window reveals an optimistic person who looks for the good side of situations & people. You are colorful, mysterious, dreamy, and visionary. On the darker side you may be viewed as saccharin sweet, given to singing "Somewhere over the Rainbow" in elevators with your mascara running like a faded country singer. You are very persuasive and often incite friends to gamble their money on lottery tickets. You routinely suffer from the Dorothy dilemma which is obvious by your ruby slippers worn when dating computer wizards. You spend much of your time in wishful thinking, searching for the pot of gold.

    The Music: Your Lover
    You rock while your partner rolls creating a pulsing beat that reaches to your very core. Your passion is deep and demanding, yet can often be fickle as it is pulled from one trend to the next, constantly trying to find a real hot groove.

    The Pictures: Your Relationships
    Revealing a disciplined personality with multiple friends and family of importance to its psyche. You are one who strives to display affection without syrupy sentiment manifesting emotion in a cool, detached manner.

    The Garbage: Your Problems (I figured this is what the garbage can symbolized while I was taking it)
    Problems come and go in your life but they do not cause you undue stress. You relax in the knowledge that you have an enduring, attractive and stylish response to the detritus of life. Your supreme confidence frees you from convention. Problems need not be hidden from sight but rather are handled in a transparent, translucent and effortless manner. You are on your way to achieving guru status for your wise handling of life's problems.

    The Clock: Your Future
    Your future is in plastics. Like the character (Dustin Hoffman) from The Graduate, you recognized early on the importance of plastic to maintaining a beautiful, hard body glowing with good health. Your face is a reflection of your quirky energy and ability to conceive new ideas with innovative flair. You have a long life ahead of you which is well warranted for one who radiates such happiness.

    *

    The results I got for the garbage can one were the most sapid of all.

    For the chicken game, the highest score I've gotten so far is 109. For the shooting game, 26850.
    They're running just like you
    For you, and I, wooo
    So people, people, need some good ol' love

    Yes feel free to.

    I think others will be game to see who gets the best scores, especially for things like the chicken or the paper aeroplane game.

    Wow, that Rabid chicken thing is insane. I got like 85 and I think I'll stop there. ^^

    7980 points for the shoot-out first time... 13330 the time after... lol, I think I get to the point where I just shoot crazily three or four times in the direction of something moving before hitting it. ^^

    Paper plane... omg I keep hitting the ceiling!! >< Nine times out of ten it doesn't go further than 4m or so... on the odd occasion I can get it to hit the back wall... must keep trying!!

    WAHOOO! I got it out the window!! 70.633m! Yes! *does a happy dance*

    EDIT: 74.566m now! Once you work out how to get it out the window it's all good.

    Default logic / lateral puzzles

    For week 3, given the statistical nature of recent posts, here goes some logic and lateral puzzles.

    Let's start with the easy ones:

    1. You have two cups, one containing orange juice and one containing and equal amount of lemonade. One teaspoon of the orange juice is taken and mixed with the lemonade. Then a teaspoon of this mixture is mixed back into the orange juice. Is there more lemonade in the orange juice or more orange juice in the lemonade?

    2. You have three boxes of fruit. One contains just apples, one contains just oranges, and one contains a mixture of both. Each box is labeled - one says "apples," one says "oranges," and one says "apples and oranges." However, it is known that none of the boxes are labeled correctly. How can you label the boxes correctly if you are only allowed to take and look at just one piece of fruit from just one of the boxes?

    (My guess is males could have some trouble with this one, but I'm not certain):
    3. At a family reunion were the following people: one grandfather, one grandmother, two fathers, two mothers, four children, three grandchildren, one brother, two sisters, two sons, two daughters, one father-in-law, one mother-in-law, and one daughter-in-law. But not as many people attended as it sounds. How many were there, and who were they?


    And let's get tougher!

    4. You have two slow-burning fuses, each of which will burn up in exactly one hour. They are not necessarily of the same length and width as each other, nor even necessarily of uniform width, so you can't measure a half hour by noting when one fuse is half burned. Using these two fuses, how can you measure 45 minutes?

    5. Three men, members of a safari, are captured by cannibals in the jungle. The men are given one chance to escape with their lives. The men are lined up and bound to stakes such that one man can see the backs of the other two, the middle man can see the back of the front man, and the front man can't see anybody. The men are shown five hats, three of which are black and two of which are white. Then the men are blindfolded, and one of the five hats is placed on each man's head. The remaining two hats are hidden away. The blindfolds are removed. The men are told that if just one of the men can guess what hat he's wearing, they may all go free. Time passes. Finally, the front man, who can't see anyone, correctly guesses the color of his hat. What color was it, and how did he guess correctly?

    6. Of three men, one always tells the truth, one always tells lies, and one answers "yes" or "no" randomly. Each man knows which one each of the others are. You may ask three yes/no questions, each of which may only be answered by one of the three men, after which you must be able to identify which man is which. How can you do it?

    7. You have ten boxes, each of which contains nine balls. The balls in one box each weigh 0.9 pounds; the balls in all the other boxes weigh exactly one pound each. You have an accurate scale in front of you, with which you can determine the exact weight, in pounds, of any given set of balls. How can you determine which of the ten boxes contains the lighter balls with only one weighing?

    And the famous Monty Hall Paradox (will we have a debate here?) :

    8. You are on a game show. You are shown three closed doors. A prize is hidden behind one, and the game show host knows where it is. You are asked to select a door. You do. Before you open it, the host opens one of the other doors, showing that it is empty, then asks you if you'd like to change your guess. Should you, should you not, or doesn't it matter?

    ^^

    I couldn't even bring myself to read through it all in one try...It makes me sleepy.

    Hahaha, actually I do have to catch a few Z's. And X's and maybe a Y or two.

    The tests look good though! Did you devise them yourself?

    I will try when better rested. (Also, I'm in day 3.5 of fast and fasting makes your head not work so good.)

    noo... I'm not that evil to devise them myself. I like logic and lateral puzzles so have a little collection.

    Get some sleep... I think no one wants to play tonight. ..
