    Cute! Look at this guy!



    We all know about sloths. You may have been called one yourself once or twice, by an irate boss or a fuming parent. But sloths really are a bit weird. Up to two thirds of their weight at any given time can be attributed to the contents of their stomachs.
    The leaves they eat are so difficult to digest that the digestion process can take up to a month. They sleep for as long as the average human teenager because the same leaves also provide very little nutrition. Oh, and they hang upside down in trees.
    All in all, one of oddest mammals on the planet (along with the average human teenager).

    It's troll cute!

    The aye-aye is the largest nocturnal primate in the world, and the only one to look like a cross between Gollum from the Lord of the Rings and a large, bug-eyed rodent.
    But what the aye-aye lacks in good looks, it more than makes up for with its remarkable talent.
    The aye-aye has evolved a large and bony middle finger that it uses to tap on wood, listening for the hollow spaces that indicate the presence of wood-boring larvae. The claw at the end of this skeletal appendage then scoops out any tasty morsels it finds.

    Aye-Aye captain cutie!

    3 of the word 'of' is what messes people up I would imagine. Just the word 'of' is the answer to this riddle. That's my guess.

    3?

    Crazy, I did the same thing.

    Here is the rest of the message to that

    HOW MANY ?
    WRONG, THERE ARE
    6 -- no joke.
    READ IT AGAIN !
    Really, go Back and Try to find the 6 F's before you scroll down.

    The reasoning behind is further down.
    The brain cannot process 'OF'.


    Incredible or what? Go back and look again!!
    Anyone who counts all 6 'F's' on the first go is a genius.
    Three is normal, four is quite rare.

    So, if anyone got 6 right off the bat, without looking at it more than once is a genius.


    Are any of you geniuses? or did it take more than once to catch it?

    I got 6. But I don't understand the point of it. Why wouldn't I get 6 if I was counting all the F's?

    The point is that you count based on sound. The word "of" is sounded out as "ov" so if you are doing this quickly you miss them.

    I got 6, but I've seen this "test" before so I knew to look for "of"
