Count the “F’s” in the following text:

FINISHED FILES ARE THE RE-
SULT OF YEARS OF SCIENTIF-
IC STUDY COMBINED WITH THE
EXPERIENCE OF YEARS...(see below)

Managed it? Scroll down only after you have counted

How many did you get?

Incredible or what? Go back and look again!!
Anyone who counts all 6 “F’s” on the first go is
a genius. Three is normal, four is quite rare.
