    Below are four (4) questions. You have to answer them instantly. You
    can't take your time, answer all of them immediately.
    OK? Let's find out just how clever you really are.
    Ready?
    GO!!! (scroll down)
    First Question:
    You are participating in a race. You overtake the second person. What
    position are you in?
    Answer: If you answered that you are first, then you are absolutely
    wrong! If you overtake the second person and you take his place, you are
    second! Try not to screw up in the next question. To answer the second question, don! 't take as much time as you took for the first question.
    Second Question: If you overtake the last person, then you are...?
    Answer: If you answered that you are second to last, then ! you are
    wrong again. Tell me, how can you overtake the LAST person?
    You're not very good at this are you?
    Third Question: Very tricky math! Note: This must be done in your
    head only. Do NOT use paper and pencil or a calculator. Try it.
    Take 1000 and add 40 to it. Now add another 1000. Now add 30. Add
    another 1000. Now add 20. Now add another 1000. Now add 10.
    What is the total?
    Scroll down for answer.
    Did you get 5000? The correct answer is actually 4100.
    Don't believe it? Check with your calculator! Today is definitely not
    our day. Maybe you will get the last question right?
    Mary's father has five daughters: #1 Nana, #2 Nene, #3 Nini, #4 Nono.
    What is the name of the fifth daughter?
    Answer: Nunu?
    NO! Of course not. Her name is Mary. Read the question again.
    KEEP THIS GOING TO FRUSTRATE THE "SMART PEOPLE" IN YOUR LIFE!

    I protest question #2. The last person in a race can, in fact, be overtaken - if he is lapped.

    So there.

    Wasn't specified - thus, Merlin could be 'right'.
