It’s funny how common sense isn’t really all that common, to be honest. Remember when you’d be told off by a teacher for a mindless thing, and they’d ask you: “do you have any common sense!?” And the only plausible answer you could think of was “no?”.
Well, Thomas April has created a test which he reckons can gauge our common sense. The questions are more like riddles, and they do require a solid bit of thinking.
Some of them are rather silly, but I suppose it kind of works. It’s one of those things where you kick yourself once the answer is revealed.
But, after searching through Thomas’ videos, I’m more interested in this ‘guess your age’ trick. When I first clicked on the video, I thought ‘oh here we go, another bullshit internet trick’. Au contraire, my mind was blown. And to confirm I wasn’t just an easily pleased idiot, I tried it on a few others in the office – they thought it was amazing.
