This weeks riddle:  A thief enters a shop and threatens the clerk, forcing him to open the safe. The clerk says, “The code for the safe is different every day, and if you hurt me you’ll never get the code”.  However, the thief manages to guess the code on his own.  How did he do it?

Each Friday morning I post some sort of brain teaser to get you to exercise your brain, but I’m currently away on vacation so I’ve posted an optical test in lieu of my usual riddle.

Look at the chart above and say the color (not the word). See how quickly you and others can do this accurately. The right side of your brain wants to say the color but the left side of your brain is focused on reading the word.
