    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.

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

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

    If you are 30, or older, you might think this is hilarious!

    When I was a kid, adults used to bore me to tears with their tedious
    diatribes about how hard things were. When they were growing up; what
    with walking twenty-five miles to school every morning.... Uphill...
    Barefoot... BOTH ways... yadda, yadda, yadda

    And I remember promising myself that when I grew up, there was no way I
    was going to lay a bunch of crap like that on my kids about how hard I
    had it and how easy they've got it!
    But now that I'm over the ripe old age of thirty, I can't help but look
    around and notice the youth of today. You've got it so easy! I mean,
    compared to my childhood, you live in Utopia!
    And I hate to say it, but you kids today, you don't know how good you've
    got it!

    I mean, when I was a kid we didn't have the Internet. If we wanted to
    know something, we had to go to the library and look it up ourselves, in
    the card catalog!!

    There was no email!! We had to actually write somebody a letter - with a
    pen! Then you had to walk all the way across the street and put it in
    the mailbox, and it would take like a week to get there! Stamps were 10
    cents!

    Child Protective Services didn't care if our parents beat us. As a
    matter of fact, the parents of all my friends also had permission to kick
    our Donkey! Nowhere was safe!

    There were no MP3's or Napsters or iTunes! If you wanted to steal music,
    you had to hitchhike to the record store and shoplift it yourself!

    Or you had to wait around all day to tape it off the radio, and the DJ
    would usually talk over the beginning and @#*% it all up! There were no
    CD players! We had tape decks in our car.. We'd play our favorite tape
    and "eject" it when finished, and then the tape would come undone
    rendering it useless. Cause, hey, that's how we rolled, Baby! Dig?

    We didn't have fancy crap like Call Waiting! If you were on the phone
    and somebody else called, they got a busy signal, that's it!

    There weren't any freakin' cell phones either. If you left the house, you
    just didn't make a call or receive one. You actually had to be out of
    touch with your "friends". OH MY GOSH !!! Think of the horror... not
    being in touch with someone 24/7!!! And then there's TEXTING. Yeah,
    right. Please! You kids have no idea how annoying you are.

    And we didn't have fancy Caller ID either! When the phone rang, you had
    no idea who it was! It could be your school, your parents, your boss,
    your bookie, your drug dealer, the collection agent... you just didn't
    know!!! You had to pick it up and take your chances, mister!

    There was no Cartoon Network either! You could only get cartoons on
    Saturday Morning. Do you hear what I'm saying? We had to wait ALL WEEK
    for cartoons, you spoiled little rat-finks!

    And we didn't have microwaves. If we wanted to heat something up, we had
    to use the stove! Imagine that!
    And our parents told us to stay outside and play... all day long. Oh,
    no, no electronics to soothe and comfort. And if you came back inside...
    you were doing chores!
    And car seats - oh, please! Mom threw you in the back seat and you hung
    on. If you were lucky, you got the "safety arm" across the chest at the
    last moment if she had to stop suddenly, and if your head hit the
    dashboard, well that was your fault for calling "shot gun" in the first
    place!
    See! That's exactly what I'm talking about! You kids today have got it
    too easy. You're spoiled rotten! You guys wouldn't have lasted five
    minutes back in 1980 or any time before!

    Well I'm not over thirty. But that makes me laugh.

    I of course probably had it easy. My family was sorta ahead of the game when it came to computers and all that. Considering the first computer my family got was in 1983.

    But on the flip side of that, kids don't get to do as many fun things as we used to. My family was talking about what we got away with. Heck I went tobagganing off the garage roof!!! No one would let their kids do that now. And it was good ol' "harmless" fun!

    I did go to africa last year for 6 weeks, and when I was talking with my parents about what to bring. My mom was like, don't bring a cell, why would you?? I went 6 weeks without a Cell, Computer or even iPod. Man that was hard for the first week, but I forgot how great it is to actually read a book, even if it was by candlelight!

    But yeah, I realized I totally had it easy at home!!!

    These are absolutely hilarious, from Ellen Degeneres' show she does a segment called "What's wrong with these photos photos"
