Find the man between the coffee beans.
Doctors (who are these doctors?) have concluded that if you find the man in:
3 seconds that your right half of your brain is better developed than most people
Between 3 seconds and one minute, then your right half of the brain is developed normally
Between one minute and 3 minutes, then the right half of your brain is functioning slowly and you need to eat more protein
If you have not found the man after 3 minutes, the right half of your brain is a mess, and the only advice is to look more for these types of exercises to make that part of the brain stronger.
The man really is there. In fact, once you find him, you cannot miss him afterwards.
I s'pose I'm normal. It's a dumb thing to do to "test your brain" but it's interesting to look for anyway.
You can find more brain teasers here, if you're interested.
And here's a really hard one if you're up for a challenge. I can't get all of them. Or even most of them. Answers are welcome and encouraged.

Sorry everyone, I have been really, really, ridiculously busy ever since I’ve gotten back. Last weekend was sorority initiation, the weekend before I was home for Homecoming and reading days, and this weekend I’ll be slaving my life away at the library. Four mid terms in two weeks is just total hell.
Anyway a few quick comments:
I did not, to my dismay, become a rich skanky hoe. I did not win the $340 mil powerball. I did not win anything.
Chewing gum is celebrating its 135th birthday. A $55 investment has made a $3 billion industry.
I’d be more than happy to link you on my site if you send me your site. Just ask!!
Lastly, my next post will be a Halloween post. There are lots of events going on around here this weekend, through next week, and next weekend where I'll be able to get pictures of people in costume. If you have a good Halloween picture of yourself or anyone else, please send it to me!!
Sorry so boring – gotta go sssstudy.

"Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver."
"I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning, that's as good as they're going to feel all day. "
"An intelligent man is sometimes forced to be drunk to spend time with his fools."
"When I read about the evils of drinking, I gave up reading."
"24 hours in a day, 24 beers in a case. Coincidence? I think not."
"When we drink, we get drunk. When we get drunk, we fall asleep. When we fall asleep, we commit no sin. When we commit no sin, we go to heaven. Sooooo, let's all get drunk and go to heaven!"
"Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy."
"Without question, the greatest invention in the history of mankind is beer. Oh, I grant you that the wheel was also a fine invention, but the wheel does not go nearly as well with pizza."
BEER: HELPING UGLY PEOPLE HAVE SEX SINCE 3000 B.C.!!!
Remember "I" before "E", except in Budweiser.
To some it's a six-pack, to me it's a Support Group.
Once, during Prohibition, I was forced to live for days on nothing but food and water.
I would kill everyone in this room for a drop of sweet beer.

And saving the best for last, as explained by Cliff Clavin, of "Cheers":
One afternoon at Cheers, Cliff Clavin was explaining the Buffalo Theory to his buddy Norm. Here's how it went:
"Well ya' see, Norm, it's like this... A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo.
And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol, as we know, kills brain cells. But naturally it attacks the slowest and the weakest first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers."
