I read that playing Sudoku helps keep your mind sharp and prevent Alzheimers. It also helps you feel like a smarty pants. I thought I’d give it a try.
Yesterday I played my first game in over two years and it took me 41 minutes – 41 MINUTES – to finish (in my defense, I didn’t know it was timing me and I was watching tv at the same time….plus I just sucked at it). At the end, the game so very kindly told me that I was the slowest human being in the world and 99% of all people are faster than me.
Well, it might not have been those exact words, but pretty close.
I’ve now completed 9 easy puzzles with my fastest time being 9 minutes and 41 seconds. The average person (so this website says) completes it in 5 minutes and 6 seconds….thus making me still feel like a loser.
While looking online a few minutes ago I just so happened to come across a game of a different kind. Just a simple little art quiz to see if you know your stuff or not.
I’m usually crap at quizzes, but I adore art, and by the age of 4 I knew my favorite painter was Van Gogh and Picaso made my head hurt, so I thought I’d give it a shot.
It took me about a minute to get through the quiz and at the end it said……
Your result for The Famous (and Not So Famous) Art Quiz…
Art History Major
Art History Major: You scored 100% Artiste!
You’ve studied art for years, and therefore you recognized almost if not all the works represented here. Way to go!
I now feel just a little better about myself.
(If someone comes on here and says they beat Sudoku in 4 minutes and aced the art quiz in 25 seconds, you are dead to me)
Here. Now look at my cute niece.
