Do you think these are good trivia questions?

The average person only gets 7 right. This is based on> U.S. & CDN info, so use all lobes of your brain. This can be more difficult than it looks-it just shows how little most of us really see!
There are 27 questions about things we see every day or have known about all our lives. How many can you get right? These little simple questions are harder than you think-it just shows you how little we pay attention to the common place things of life. Put your thinking cap on. No cheating! No looking around! No getting out of your chair! No using anything on or in your desk or computer! Can you beat 20?? (The average is 7)

Write down your answers and then check your answers (on the bottom) only AFTER completing all the questions. REMEMBER - NO CHEATING!!! — BE HONEST!!!

That means no looking at your phone or anything on your desk…Then, before you pass this on to your friends, change the number on the subject line to show how many you got correct. Forward to your friends and also back to the one who sent it to you.
