I must be above average - I'm 62 and found it boringly easy.Smiley

Re: No fool like an old one!

Not really difficult, or is it supposed to be a joke (as in the birthday card with the two halves glued together?)

I think this one defeated me, IIRC I was about 8 years old and read it in the Readers Digest Junior Treasury (if you're knocking on a bit you've probably seen it before too, so please don't jump in and spoil it for anyone who hasn't):

How quickly can you find out what is so unusual about this paragraph? It looks so ordinary that you would think that nothing is wrong with it at all, and, in fact, nothing is. But it is unusual. Why? If you study it and think about it, you may find out, but I am not going to assist you in any way. You must do it without coaching. No doubt, if you work at it for long, it will dawn on you. Who knows? Go to work and try your skill. Par is about half an hour.

I started to read it, but got interrupted by a sarney..and forgot to go back to it. Roll_eyes

A float tip is pleasing in its appearance and even more pleasing in its disappearance.

Re: No fool like an old one!

I was feeling pretty smug with myself for achieving it without errors, now I feel like I've been wronged!

@Minivanman I'm going to come around your house tonight and puncture your tyres!! Ticked_off

Re: No fool like an old one!

I'm feeling old now, and I'm only 28...

@Anoush

Look on the bright side, you're probably the youngest one here, presumably why you favour a cartoon character for your avatar Funny Only joking..., you only have another 28 years to go and you'll be looking forward to your 60th. By then of course some of us will be dead anyway! Undecided

@Browni

I had to laugh at your signature just now, it's quite apt given the meaning of Lithium..

Lithium is used to treat the manic episodes of bipolar disorder. Symptoms include hyperactivity, rushed speech, poor judgement, reduced need for sleep, aggression, and anger.Ticked_off

Does Plusnet really use that? Maybe that explains all this weirdness going on lately with webmail and such like.
