Are you usual or unusual?

As I was getting my afternoon's batch of e-mails, I came across this e-mail entitled "Are you usual or unusual?"

It is a forwarded message and I usually don't read such e-mails but today being Monday and all (what is it about Mondays?), I decided to take a break. I took the really quick test and found out ... that I am usual! Aaargh.

Try the test if you haven't done so yet. I was pleasantly surprised, even if I belong to the usuals.

Are You Usual or Unusual?
Let's find out.
Simply follow the instructions and answer each question as quickly as you can.
#1 Rule: Don't cheat.

Think of a number 1-10

Multiply that number by 9

If the number has 2 digits add those digits together

Now, subtract 5

Determine what letter in the alphabet corresponds to the number you ended up with
(e.g. 1=A, 2=B, 3=C, etc)

Think of a country that starts with that letter

Remember the last letter 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 a fruit that starts with that letter

So, were you thinking of a Kangaroo in Denmark eating an Orange?

Are you one of the 98% who thought of this,
or are you in the 2% whose minds think differently?

    I'm in the 2%. In Denmark a Koala Bear eats Raisins..... How unusual is that

  2. Hey Ric, how come you always get different (but favorable) scores in these tests?

    it's a trap! ;-)

    kahit na anong piliin na number, pare-parehong "D" ang start na country na makukuha.

    And guess what: http://www.ams.org/mathweb/mi-depts.html

    apat lang ang countries na "D" ang start ...

    pero sandali, country ba ang Dubai? or state ng UAE?

    ka edong

    (blog warming, dalaw kayo: http://technobiography.edongskey.com)

  6. what about this... a duck in Deutschland eating kiwi

  7. In Denmark, a koala bear eating rambutan and drinking tequilla, hik!

  8. Jorge, Mr. Abbey, Neneng Tanggers: does this mean I am the only one who belongs to the 80% ???

    Ka Edong: yeah, I notice the country always starts with a D ...

  9. I thought of Kingkong (name of a gigantic gorilla) in Denmark eating guyabano.

  10. bwahuhuhu ... Abaniko, nasa 20% ka rin?!?! Wala bang makikiramay sa akin?

  11. Watson - when I see these type of internet quizes, I know that they are trying to lump you in a category and I like trying to spot the way out. I have seen enough of these to know that no matter what number you pick, you are going to arrive at the same number and thus the same letter. I was onto the ploy and therefore that is why I found a out by selecting the Dominican Republic. It is also much closer to me than Denmark.

  12. oh my gosh...you got it right..it's denmark where kangaroo eats orange...it's magic!!!

  13. Hello Mr. Abbey! Yep, a pattern emerged when friends commented on their results. I was a bit clueless to realize that the quiz is depending on the most common words that you will surely think of hence I got into the 80%

    Yessss!!!! Finally! Princess Em, we belong to the 80%! LOL

  14. i am unusual. totoo bang 80% ito? bakit kayo lang ni ems ang usual?
