New Forno Bravo Forum Feature

Forno Bravo Forum Community,

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

  • Test for Dementia

    Below are four (4) questions and a bonus question. You have to answer them instantly. You can't take your time, answer all of them immediately . OK?

    Let's find out just how clever you really are....



    First Question:

    You are participating in a race. You overtake the second person. What position are you in?




















    Answer: If you answered that you are first, then you are absolutely wrong! If you overtake the second person and you take his place, you are second!


    Try not to screw up next time. Now answer the second question, but don't take as much time as you took for the first question, OK ?





    Second Question:

    If you overtake the last person, then you are...?

















    Answer: If you answered that you are second to last, then you are wrong again.. Tell me, how can you overtake the LAST Person?


    You're not very good at this, are you?







    Third Question:

    Very tricky arithmetic! Note: This must be done in your head only
    Do NOT use paper and pencil or a calculator. Try it.



















    Take 1000 and add 40 to it. Now add another 1000 . Now add 30 .
    Add another 1000 Now add 20 . Now add another 1000 Now add 10.

    What is the total?





















    Did you get 5000?

    The correct answer is actually 4100.

    If you don't believe it, now check it with a calculator!
    Today is definitely not your day, is it?


    Maybe you'll get the last question right.... .Maybe.





    Fourth Question:

    Mary's father has five daughters: 1. Nana, 2. Nene, 3. Nini, 4. Nono. What is the name of the fifth daughter?


















    Did you Answer Nunu?



    NO! Of course it isn't.
    Her name is Mary. Read the question again!





    Okay, now the bonus round:

    A mute person goes into a shop and wants to buy a toothbrush. By
    Imitating the action of brushing his teeth he successfully expresses himself to the shopkeeper and the purchase is done.

    Next, a blind man comes into the shop who wants to buy a pair of
    Sunglasses; how does HE indicate what he wants?

























    He just has to open his mouth and ask...
    It's really very simple....
    sigpicTiempo para guzarlos..... ...enjoy every sandwich!

      Re: Test for Dementia

      I was reeled in on all but #4. Both my 18 year old son and I did the math problem several times. We had an interesting discussion as to *why* the question leads you into incrementing the thousand digit instead of the hundreds.

      Cool test!
