So CBC has been running ads for this Test the Nation “event” that came out of some brilliant mind in the senior programming boardroom.
I’m not quite sure what the point is. It seems to be some sort of nationwide IQ test, complete with break-the-stereotypes revelations where they show stupid surgeons and smart tattoo artists.
What struck me on their website is this “mental gym” quiz. Ten surprisingly difficult questions about logic, memory etc. Below the big link to the test is a list of the top 5 finishers so far.
Apparently all five answered the questions 100% correctly in under a second and a half.
Could have something to do with the fact that you can take the test over and over again and the answers never change.
