Rawr July 25 2009 12:22 AM EDT

[P]Mitt July 25 2009 12:23 AM EDT

I'm impressed. I got what it said I would get.

I won't say what I got because I don't want to ruin it for anyone else :P

Untouchable July 25 2009 12:23 AM EDT

Rawr is lying hahah

Rawr July 25 2009 12:24 AM EDT

Untouchable July 25 2009 12:26 AM EDT

and Naruto wold be like 2% cooler if his hair was actually like that in your pic :p

Lord Bob July 25 2009 12:32 AM EDT

I guess I'm part of the 2% abnormal crowd. But really, like that surprises anyone here...

Demigod July 25 2009 12:32 AM EDT

It didn't work for me with either trait. I guess I beat it.

Lochnivar July 25 2009 12:37 AM EDT

it seems like more than 2% of us are abnormal...

just one more reason to love CB

(and yeah, I'm abnormal)

Goodfish July 25 2009 12:41 AM EDT

The blue background got me thinking "blue", and I had some friends over for drinks last night and thought "screwdriver".

Definitely not what they thought I'd think. Abnormal, just like LB.

FailBoat[SG] July 25 2009 12:44 AM EDT

I'm in the 2% that are not normal.

Admiralkiller July 25 2009 12:46 AM EDT

Hmm I actually have one of the the "things" mentioned at the end. I use it everyday I work. So even thou I am part of the 98% it may be for different reason then most.

Demigod July 25 2009 12:52 AM EDT

GF gets a point for having the exact same answer I had. He still loses 50 for bailing on the game, though.

DoS [Demon Forging] July 25 2009 1:04 AM EDT

I've done it before so I only remembered one part of it and it just so happened that it got the color for me as well. :p

TheHatchetman July 25 2009 1:12 AM EDT

bluehammer :P

TheHatchetman July 25 2009 1:13 AM EDT

"The blue background got me thinking "blue""

Same here

{Squire}Mushu July 25 2009 1:30 AM EDT

I said blue hammer, too. So maybe we'd say red hammer if we did this as a verbal exercise.

Mesoshort July 25 2009 1:33 AM EDT

I said purple knife.

I knife is a tool, right? o.O

TheHatchetman July 25 2009 1:33 AM EDT

perhaps... Though I tend to lean towards blue, green, and black in general

DERPA [Red Permanent Assurance] July 25 2009 1:50 AM EDT

Purple Screwdriver.

Demigod July 25 2009 2:06 AM EDT

Mr Brown is a too good to be believable for me. He's wonderfully entertaining, though.

{WW]Nayab [Cult of the Valaraukar] July 25 2009 2:55 AM EDT

Why would you get that as an answer?! I got blue torch.

Burton July 25 2009 3:11 AM EDT

It got me lol

Cube July 25 2009 3:41 AM EDT

Yellow hammer

Vicious Cat July 25 2009 4:12 AM EDT

I got the Red bit right. But spade - dunno where that came from??

Daz July 25 2009 4:13 AM EDT

I didn't watch the video - I read the comments and know what you're talking about. I got this as an email once ages ago. I usually ignore these, because they're annoying, but I had exams and was looking for a reason to procrastinate.
I got Red Hammer. I was actually really amused by it so, I got some other people to do it and they all got Red Hammer as well.

Gandalf July 25 2009 6:54 AM EDT

I got Red spanner lol.

Sickone July 25 2009 7:11 AM EDT

The whole idea of that "trick" is that you are EXPECTED to hate doing calculations.
Of course, most of the CB crowd doesn't exactly hate calculations, or else they wouldn't be playing for too long :)

By making you "angry" that you have to "calculate so much", you would pick a color and a tool associated with your mental state (red for anger, hammer for violence).
Obviously, if the whole test was trivial to you, you'd rather pick blue (very few would pick something other than blue or red) and some other random tool.

{WW]Nayab [Cult of the Valaraukar] July 25 2009 7:14 AM EDT

Makes sense. Specially since math is my best subject.

Newlin [SeeD] July 25 2009 1:07 PM EDT

I'm abnormal too! :D

Almaisky July 25 2009 1:13 PM EDT

Wow, I got a red hammer too, but that's probably because i was reading the comments, and red hammer was already in my mind.

Mikel July 25 2009 1:14 PM EDT

Blue Hoe lol no idea why that was on my brain.

Lord Bob July 25 2009 1:26 PM EDT

Nobody else picked a wrench? I did pick red, but that's only because I always say red every time I'm asked for a random color.

Cube July 25 2009 3:35 PM EDT

Lord Bob, spanner = wrench; you got the same as Gandalf

CombatSquirrel July 25 2009 3:47 PM EDT

Yellow Wrench

Adios Muchachos July 25 2009 3:49 PM EDT

I also thought "blue screwdriver" hehe

Tyriel [123456789] July 25 2009 3:49 PM EDT

Haha, those calculations are so easy. :P

Doesn't really help the 'trick' that math is my favorite subject, I had already done it previously, and I had read some of the comments and knew what was coming.

Lord Bob July 25 2009 3:58 PM EDT

"Lord Bob, spanner = wrench; you got the same as Gandalf"

Shows you how much I know about tools...

The only reason I picked red wrench is because I just finished Bioshock a week ago.

Cube July 25 2009 6:06 PM EDT

Nah, it's just how the Brits say it I think.

AdminG Beee July 25 2009 6:17 PM EDT

I promise she's sober but wifey came up with a yellow "spoon".

Sometimes I really do worry...

QBsutekh137 July 25 2009 6:28 PM EDT

What the hell is she using a spoon for, GB?

Can't help it, been writing all day, and all I can think of is "impacted bowel."

I disgust me.

QBJohnnywas July 25 2009 6:29 PM EDT

One scoop or two.

{WW]Nayab [Cult of the Valaraukar] July 25 2009 8:49 PM EDT

My sister just did this.
She got Purple Hammer.

Admiralkiller July 25 2009 8:49 PM EDT

Well I got red hammer. I am not especially good at math but quick and easy calculations like these I excel at and I am always up for a challenge with little numbers. I liked the quiz. I also know I am weird and don't think properly but I still got the most common answer.

The reason I think most people choose the final answer is because red (or blue) is the most common color that comes to mind first, next a hammer is the most common tool on the earth for thousands of years. even if you don't like either it's almost instinct.

{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- July 25 2009 9:40 PM EDT

Whoa, it got me :O

RywA [Dark Carnival Forging] July 26 2009 2:14 AM EDT

Haha! Purple screwdriver. :D

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] July 26 2009 2:46 AM EDT

Hmm, purple axe. Of course I will always pick purple something when given a color to choose.
