Puzzle

Posted by James Briggs on July 09, 2004

A light hearted puzzle, perhaps refelectin the English tongue.

Here's a puzzle for you all. It comes from the Chrysler/Daimler Intranet.
How many 'F's are present in the following text?

FINISHED FILES ARE THE RE-
SULT OF YEARS OF SCIENTIF-
IC STUDY COMBINED WITH THE
EXPERIENCE OF YEARS

Firstly, read again, then count
OK?

Alcoholics count only three F.

Count again. Then look below.

How many this time?
There are 6 - most people miss those in 'OF' - I did, and nobody I've shown this to has got more than 4.
Weird.
