Closure and coffee man

I spent more than an hour reading all the comments, truly incredible. And amongst all of them, I particularly like Helen’s comment. She said it’s a bit flawed to derive answers from the assumption that a rich guy can’t be nice and caring and that poor dudes are always great. I agree with her totally.

All girls do not wish to be generalised as materialistic. But in justifying themselves, girls conveniently generalise all rich guys as jerks. Don’t you think that’s a bit unfair?

Materialistic girl + rich jerks = serve her right

Not materialistic girl + rich saint = …ok… I think we have enough of it already. I sincerely hope that no readers will be placed in such predicament. But if you did, I would be very interested in knowing the result.

Right, it’s
hip-hop day today which means tomorrow is friiiiiiiiiiiiiday! And nope… no mind boggling riddle for today. But how about an eye exercise?

Try to find the coffee man in the following picture within 3 seconds. According to medical research (which zewt is unable to verify), anyone who succeed in finding the coffee man within 3 seconds has a ‘beyond normal’ brain.

If you take a minute, then your brain development is normal.

If you take between 1 to 3 minutes, your brain is not developing properly and requires protein intake.

If you take more than 3 minutes… errr… maybe you can have a shot at our local politics?

Right… here goes… this is not a joke, the coffee man is there… good luck!

cindy said...

Took me less than 3 sec - because someone emailed me this before, so I know where the guy is. :P

Anyway, now I feel like drinking some coffee from Coffee Bean. :D

Enemy of the Republic said...

I will read the other post as well, but generalizing, particularly between the sexes, is dangerous turf. But hell, we all do it.

confessing7girl said...

ahhhhhh im a genious!!!!!! i never seen this before but my 1st look at the picture and i got it!! its sooo obvious!!!!!!!!! :D

TiNa HusSaiN said...

Manal said...

Is he dead??? poor fella....stuck in the "coffee bean" n not starbucks.

Too caffeinated la.

me said...

hey! i saw him in like 5 seconds. does that mean i'm super clever or what? kakakakaka.

true, you shouldn't generalise. then again, depends on what you mean by rich. definitely not honda accords but porshe and ferraris....and i've never met one that is not full of himself. even their humility is but a charade.

lingzie said...

hey! i saw him in about 5 seconds too!! guess zewt's got some pretty brilliant readers!! haha!
happy weekend everyone...!

Huei said...

ahh ok so i shall have a shot at the *ahem* hor?

most rich man = jerks (99%)

a suplementary platinium card that i don't have to settle the bills for? nahh..i'd like to tell myself at the end of the day, whatever i have is all earned by myself, i'm capable of more than spending a guy's money (excluding parents lar cos i won't be where i am without them) ^.^

jorji said...

queenofallbees said...

mimi - C said...

I thought the man was supposed to be big with limbs. haha!
Freaky face though.

aSstHa said...

hahaha... i rec'd dis email somewer last year... i refused to look at the pic cos i tot it was something dat if u looked too long d whole picture will turn into something grotesque...
ended up my colleagues told me nothing will pop up so i found da man can't remember how long i took tho... so this time around kenot time it la... it'll b considered cheating no?
anyway... enjoy d weekend on my behalf as i'll b stuck in the confinement of my cubicle as usual. at least the silver lining is dis will b my very last month end closing wer i'm a slave to mth ends.
no more mth end social recluse. still will hv deadlines @ d new place i s'posed but at least it's on adhoc basis no? wish me luck.. ;)

zewt said...

cindy - that's called cheating... but u can always reward yourself with coffee bean.

Enemy of the Republic - yeah, i will be interested in knowing your 2 cents.

confessing7girl - *bow down and worship you*... one look... that's like 1 second! so you're beyond normal... aka ... abnormal :P

TinaHussain - yup... me too... but freaking london scheduled a conference call at 5pm!!!

Manal - i think he is trying to indulge in more caffein... i think he likes it a lot.

Helen said...

I've to concede I'm just a normal being....

Damn, there goes my chance of entering political arena... :-P

PurpLe~MuShRooM said...

Initially, I thought this is a trick picture. Can't help.. got too many emails where something just jumped out and scare the hell out of me. SO, i dare not look at the coffee bean picture for too long.. hahahah. But saw it! Took me quite some time to spot this fella.

angel said...

*AHEM*...

Anyway, someone sent me this question today. Can you help me?

10 fish in a tank. 1 died and was removed. Did the water level increase or decrease?

aSstHa said...

zewt,

yeap... change of environment (altho not necessarily good) and a totally different carreer path. for all i know after 1/2 year i'd be wishing i'd never left in the first place
*stops and ponders for a moment*

nah... anything beats here. at least over @ d new place i KNOW i'm allowed to listen to mood music (yes, i asked during the interview)

better pay. definately lo... if not leave for wat? altho the location is a tad tad too far for my comfort (bye² waking up @ 7.30 am)

Aput said...

spotted him in less than 3 seconds. your unverified source thinks I've an abnormal brain...

such an ego boost!!

=)

and I'll still go into politics, mind you.

day-dreamer said...

Phew! Lucky for me, I'm normal. LOL!!

I'll take a shot for angel's. My guess... increase. *oi angel, correct ka? :D*

may said...

ok, I'm saved... 1-3 mins... phew! don't need to have a shot at local politics yet!

zewt said...

Helen - ahhh... that's a shame really...

Purple mushroom - eh? can access blogspot already? yeah, i tot it was one of those... till i saw the small head... i think within 3 seconds :P

angel - didnt increase or decrease becos you didnt mention there's water there.

aSstHa - hahaha... 7.30... psstt... i wake up at 8.40 and still can reach work on time...

Aput - well my friend... i will support you anytime... anytime...

5xmom.com said...

Bengbeng said...

CRIZ LAI said...

It took me less than 10s. I guessed I'm fully awake with my loyal cup of coffee :)

Vern said...

Uh..kinda spot it the moment i saw the picture...beyond normal brain?? I think not. More like pure coincidence. :P

Oh, btw, can i link you?

zewt said...

gina - 20 seconds is a pretty good score. :) the blur face on the bottom right corner can be confusing eh?

5xmom - coffee bean... starbucks?

Bengbeng - ahhh... thanks for the compliment. you're too kind.

CRIZ LAI - anything below 1 minute is good eh...

Vern - well, most brains will start looking from the top... yours kinda out of the ordinar. yeah... links are always welcome.

Big Rice said...

angel said...

day-dreamer said...

WP said...

Just to highlight something you said:
I particularly like Helen’s comment. She said it’s a bit flawed to derive answers from the assumption that a rich guy can’t be nice and caring and that poor dudes are always great. I agree with her totally.

All girls do not wish to be generalised as materialistic. But in justifying themselves, girls conveniently generalise all rich guys as jerks. Don’t you think that’s a bit unfair?


In this case, don't you think that it's a bit unfair to generalise all girls as people who generalise guys? ;) Especially after what Helen said... (sorry if someone already mentioned this, I didn't really read the other comments)

zewt said...

Big Rice - well done... i guess we are all normal.

angel - DYK ahem? what what? me smart? just need to analyse the question more.. :)

day dreamer - haha... just need to analyse more.

WP - hi there... well, i think you need to generally read my last few entries to know that a lot of girls do generalise rich guys as jerks without being generalised. get the drift?

-Princess Shin- said...

Oh my goodness! I was wondering what you meant! Then I found it! Haha.. so cute la that little guy! Wahaha...

Less than one minute! =)

zewt said...

Princess Shin - you thought i was trying to bluff you? haha... ahhh... u dont need to join politics then.
