Please read this sentence.

FINISHED FILES ARE THE RESULT OF YEARS OF SCIENTIFIC STUDY COMBINED WITH THE EXPERIENCE OF YEARS.

Count the F's.
How many do you find?

It's funny (well I think so) that most people only count 3.

(that is, if the correct answer isn't too close and don't make people recount a lot)
I placed this on my forum a while ago, out of 200 answers over 50% was wrong.

I think I’m like Google. When I read it I mentally omitted the very common word “of”. So I only mentally registered the less common words containing the “f’s”

Jup, thats it

There is a whole psycological explanation for it as well, but my English is not good enough to go there
A search on google for "count the f's" will return many results on that part.

"Count the F's"

I will again say there are Zero, Nada 0 F's in that sentence. According to the Question it asks specificly to count the "F's"

There are 6 occurances of the letter F but 0 "F's"

I look for the day, when every affiliate from every nation can climb to the mountain top and yell,
'Free again, Free Again."

Ehm, ok.

My english is not perfect and what I have learned was Uk or general English, or whatever you call that, not "American English".
Usually I get around with that pretty good, didn't think it would be that big of a deal in "Daily Chuckle"

Vive, get ready to kick yourself. There are 3 occurrences of the word “of”. I had to paste it into Word and do a search before I saw the first one, then suddenly the other 2 appeared on my screen.

Are people seriously suggesting that they could not read 6 f's the first time they read the sentence?
No way

Yep only saw three first time - its' a speed reading thing I don't actually read every word.

I had to go back and slowly read each word to get six.
