mind games

Just a bit of fun:
There’s a word game we used to play at my school, or a sort of trick, and it works like this. You tell someone they have to answer some questions as quickly as possible, and then you rush at them the following:
“What’s one plus four?!”
“What’s five plus two?!”
“What’s seven take away three?!”
“Name a vegetable?!”
Nine times out of 10 people answer the last question with “Carrot”.
The BBC article referenced above circles the ways in which the mind organizes itself, sometimes for good and sometimes for money.
