    This was sent to me by my friend Susan. I did very well and got all of them right. Why don't you try and give it a shot? It's kinda fun.

    Subject: ARE YOU THE WEAKEST LINK???
    Below are four (4) questions. You have to answer them instantly.
    You can't take your time, answer all of them immediately.
    OK? Let's find out just how clever you really are. Ready? GO!!!

    First Question:
    You are participating in a race. You overtake the second person.
    What position are you in?
    Answer:
    If you answer that you are first, then you are absolutely wrong!

    If you overtake the second person and you take his place, you
    are second!
    Try not to screw up in the next question.
    To answer the second question, don't take as much time as you took
    for the first question.

    Second Question:
    If you overtake the last person, then you are...?

    Answer:
    If you answered that you are second to last, then you are wrong again.

    Tell me, how can you overtake the LAST person?!
    You're not very good at this are you?

    Third Question:

    Very tricky math!

    Note: This must be done in your head only.
    Do NOT use paper and pencil or a calculator. Try it.
    Take 1000 and add 40 to it. Now add another 1000.
    Now add 30. Add another 1000. Now add 20.
    Now add another 1000.
    Now add 10.
    What is the total?

    Scroll down for answer..
    Did you get 5000?
    The correct answer is actually 4100.
    Don't believe it? Check with your calculator!
    Today is definitely not your day.

    Maybe you will get the last question right?

    John's father has four sons named: Winter, Spring, Summer, and

    Who is the fourth son?
    Answer: FALL? NO! Of course not.
    His name is John. Read the question again.


    You ARE the WEAKEST LINK!!!!!!
    Good Bye!!
