Watch the video carefully to count how many times the white team passes the ball. Watch the vid NOW before you scroll down to the spoiler below the video screen.

Okay, nearly time to Sneaky Peak

Okay, here's the answer -

So, how many did you count? It doesn't really matter. What really matters is whether you saw the man in the (book)monkey suit walk into the room halfway through. I've seen this shown in two different conference rooms and in each case 90% didn't see the cheeky chimp. Check out "Quirkology" by Richard Wiseman for loads more funky "science in our everyday lives" stuff.

Is it good or bad that I lost count when I saw the dude in the monkey suit?
