Friday Q&A: Self-Referential Aptitude Test
Posted by on Jul 23rd, 2010

Hav’nt had a Friday Q&A in a while, but this one more than makes up for it if you’re looking for a challenge or just want to feel like an absolute retard. This may well be the toughest puzzle i think i’ve posted.

I attempted it, but gave up because it made my brain hurt. It was designed by a really really smart chap, Prof Jim Propp at Berkely university.

You better sit your lanky ass down coz bottom line…this test will knock you the f**k out.
