Now add 30.
Add another 1000.
Now add 20.
Now add another 1000. Now add 10.

What is the total?

Did you get 5000?
.
The correct answer is actually 4100.

Don’t believe it? Check with your calculator! Today is definitely not your day.

Maybe you will get the last question right?

Answer: Nunu?

NO! Of course not.
Her name is Mary. Read the question again

Okay, now the bonus round:

There is a mute person who wants to buy a toothbrush. By imitating the action of brushing one’s teeth he successfully expresses himself to the shopkeeper and the purchase is done.

Now if there is a blind man who wishes to buy a pair of sunglasses! , how should he express himself?

    Bobby is right of course! Blind people talk!
    As of everyone else, the sun still damages blind eyes!

    Ray Charles certainly wore sunglasses. And if you’re the first person to overtake the last person in a race, on a looped track, then you’re (still) first! Of course, if that last person in the race, on the looped track, is snail’s-pace slow, there might be others in front of you…
