    Default OTP: Test question #3

    >>> Continued from previous message

    Third Question:

    Very tricky arithmetic! 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?

    Did you get 5000?

    The correct answer is actually 4100.

    If you don't believe it, check it with a calculator!
    Today is definitely not your day, is it?
    Maybe you'll get the last question right....
    .....Maybe.

    Now this blows my mind! How can adding in my own mind very slowly come up
    with 5,000, but sure enough to write it on paper, it comes up as 4,100.
    AGHHH! It's 2:00 a.m. and I'm doing trick questions and math problems?!
