further evidence I'm "unusual"

My boss sent around one of those email 'tests' - it has you do a number of mathematical calculations, then asks you to "quick, think of a color and a tool".

But rarely do the more professional versions ladle out the tacit judgment so obviously or so thick. That's fine - me and my possibly abnormal brain will go off over here and amuse ourselves, and someday we'll take over the world!! That's right, we'll be back - you'll be sorry... didn't want to be part of your stupid red-hammer crowd anyway. Hrumph.
