July 25 2009 12:32 AM EDT
I guess I'm part of the 2% abnormal crowd. But really, like that surprises anyone here...
July 25 2009 12:32 AM EDT
It didn't work for me with either trait. I guess I beat it.
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)
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.
July 25 2009 12:44 AM EDT
I'm in the 2% that are not normal.
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.

GF gets a point for having the exact same answer I had. He still loses 50 for bailing on the game, though.
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
"The blue background got me thinking "blue""
I said blue hammer, too. So maybe we'd say red hammer if we did this as a verbal exercise.
July 25 2009 1:33 AM EDT
I said purple knife.
I knife is a tool, right? o.O
perhaps... Though I tend to lean towards blue, green, and black in general
July 25 2009 2:06 AM EDT
Mr Brown is a too good to be believable for me. He's wonderfully entertaining, though.
Why would you get that as an answer?! I got blue torch.
July 25 2009 3:11 AM EDT
It got me lol
July 25 2009 3:41 AM EDT
July 25 2009 4:12 AM EDT
I got the Red bit right. But spade - dunno where that came from??
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.
July 25 2009 6:54 AM EDT
I got Red spanner lol.
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.
Makes sense. Specially since math is my best subject.
July 25 2009 1:07 PM EDT
I'm abnormal too! :D
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.
July 25 2009 1:14 PM EDT
Blue Hoe lol no idea why that was on my brain.
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.
July 25 2009 3:35 PM EDT
Lord Bob, spanner = wrench; you got the same as Gandalf
I also thought "blue screwdriver" hehe
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.
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.
July 25 2009 6:06 PM EDT
Nah, it's just how the Brits say it I think.
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...
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.
July 25 2009 6:29 PM EDT
One scoop or two.
My sister just did this.
She got Purple Hammer.
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.
Haha! Purple screwdriver. :D
Hmm, purple axe. Of course I will always pick purple something when given a color to choose.
