Lightbulb Brain Games

Okay, so I've found a really cool new TV show called Brain Games! It explores how your brain works and gives optical illusions and such.

Of course, this thread isn't just to talk about that-- here you can talk of any optical illusions or brain games you've stumbled across.

I have one to start.

1)Pick a number-- 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5.

Got a number yet?

2) Multiply your number by 9.
Ex- 1x9=9, 2x9= 18 etc

3) If your number has two digits, add the digits together.
(Ex 18 would be 1+8=9) or if it has one digit, just use that one number and skip this step.

4) Subtract the number from the previous step by 5.

5) If your number was 1, your letter will be A. If your number was 2, your letter will be B. 3=C, 4=D and so on.

6) Using that letter, think of a country that starts with that letter.

7) Using the last letter of the country you've chosen, pick an animal that starts with the last letter.
(Example: (random) country might be America, using the last letter, 'A' you might say 'Aardvark')

8) Using the last letter of the animal you've picked, choose a color that starts with that last letter.
(example same as above)

Got your three things? (country, animal, color?)

I bet I can guess them.

xD That was my reaction when I got that and the TV said the same thing. See, they narrowed the amount of options you had down, and Denmark, Kangaroo and Orange were the most popular. (:

Awkward. I got Dominican Republic, Chickadee, and Ebony.
Also the multiplying by 9 thing and then finding the digital root are unnecessary because the digital root of any multiple of 9 is 9. I think it's to throw you off.
