      MIND TRICK

      What is:

      * 2+2?

      * 4+4?

      * 8+8?

      * 16+16?













      Quick! Pick a number between 12 and 5.
























      Got it?


      The number you picked was 7.



      Ready for another?
      Just follow these instructions, and answer the questions one at a time and as quickly as you can! Don't advance until you've done each of them. Now, ARROW down, but not too fast, you might miss something.........


      What is:

      * 1+5

      * 2+4

      * 3+3

      * 4+2

      * 5+1













      Now repeat saying the number 6 to yourself as fast as you can for 10 seconds. Then scroll down.
























      QUICK!!! THINK OF A VEGETABLE! Then arrow down.
























      You're thinking of a carrot.

      If not....
      you're among the 2% of the population whose minds are warped enough to think of something else. 98% of people will answer 'carrot' when given this exercise.

      The firsat one worked for me. I thought 7. I think its because 12 came first and then 5. Then my mind looked it as 12-5 and selectd 7.

      The second trick was the subject of another thread in this forum.

      the first one blew my mind, I was like WTF 12-5? I was brought up to say the smaller number first, so by the time I got around to answering the question I grudgingly picked 10.

      As for the vegetable, I said asparagus. Maybe it's because I watched American Beauty last week? who knows.

      anyway you could justifiably call me warped, but it's not because of my ten asparagi here.

      Ha you probably got confused apples are fruits not vegetables.

      And actually I think carrots are not vegetables either. They are tuber roots but their classification is subjective. My point of view is that vegetables are the green, leafy part of the plant and what we eat from the carrot is the root where all the nutrients are stored.

      The first one got me but the second one I said tomato which isnt a vegitable. Though right after saying tomato I thought letus.

      I thought a vegitable was any part of the plant that wasnt a fruit, as in leaves roots stems ect. unles its a bean thats a ummm... legume? dont know if thats spelt right but I refuse to google it.

      well it depends if you are looking at it from a botanical standpoint, or a culinary one:

      Is the tomato a fruit or vegetable?

      To really figure out if a tomato is a fruit or vegetable, you need to know what makes a fruit a fruit, and a vegetable a vegetable. The big question to ask is, DOES IT HAVE SEEDS?

      If the answer is yes, then technically, you have a FRUIT. This, of course, makes your tomato a fruit. It also makes cucumbers, squash, green beans and walnuts all fruits as well. VEGETABLES such as, radishes, celery, carrots, and lettuce do NOT have seeds (that are part of what we eat) and so they are grouped as vegetables.

      Now don't go looking for tomatoes next to the oranges in your grocery stores. Certain fruits like tomatoes and green beans will probably always be mostly referred to as "vegetables" in today's society.[/b]
      For all domestic intents and purposes, it's a vegetable. If you decide to become a botanist, then it's a fruit because it contains seeds.

      Hmm, I now percieve the true essence of this thread!

      The "MIND TRICK" stated so boldly in the topic is in fact what has happened here.
      The thread readers have been tricked into discussing which natural products are fruits and which are vegetables and even which remain neither!

      "Evogen" is simply a purposefully misspelled replacement for "Evigen" standing for "Evil Genius"!

      they all contain seeds, so yes, from a botanical viewpoint, they are the fruit of the plant

      but for kitchen purposes, they are vegetables

      Hmm so this whole thing about vegetable/fruit is subjective. It actually doesn't matter to me as long as I can eat them
