Mind Reading Experiment with Junk Mail

Carefully follow the instructions below and Junk Mail will attempt to read your mind and tell you your answer:

  • Think of a number between 2 and 9
  • Multiply the number by 9
  • Add the two digits together
  • Subtract 5 from the number you now have
  • Convert the number into a letter – 1 = a, 2 = b, 3 = c, etc…
  • Think of a European Country starting with that letter
  • Now think of the second letter of that country
  • Think of an animal that starts with that letter (This must be an animal – not a bird – so if you are thinking of an eagle think again!)
  • What colour is your animal?
  • Now concentrate carefully on your answers! 

Check below to see if Junk Mail has read your mind…. comment on this post and let us know if this is the correct answer

    Nice one !!! Expected something like this as Denmark is the only European country beginning with D. Elephant would also seem a natural choice, but I chose Eland, just to be different.

    Keep ’em coming
