I'm not buying that that's a real image. I remember looking at a larger version of it awhile ago and too many things didn't quite look right IMHO.

BTW there are a couple of more tests if you go to the main page.

L1 - 6 (w/ the above pic contested )
L2 - 7
L3 -7
L4 - 3 DOH!

Not bad, although some that I got wrong I had read on CNN such as the : 8. It's the latest fashion in Japan: skirts with pictures of buttocks airbrushed on the back of them. <---- CNN had an article about that....

Many of those pics I knew to be real or hoax from past viewings. Some have been around for years.

AnyHOO, here are my scores, with the missed ones in spoilers.

Level 1 - 9/10
Spoiler:
I thought the jet breaking the sound barrier was phony.


Level 2 - 8/10
Spoiler:
I thought the cat licking the mouse and the double-decker bus in the hole were phonies.


Level 3 - 9/10
Spoiler:
I thought the dress with the airbrushed buttocks was real.


Level 4 - 6/10
Spoiler:
The fitness center with everyone on the escalator instead of the small flight of stairs seemed too cutesy to be real. I also thought the plane on the highway was fake. The designer SARS mask and the fat cat were two I thought were real.

I aced all 4 across the board. If anyone has any kind of net-savvy, and has been paying attention over the last few years, even the hard level is a snap.

I thought that picture of the jet in Level 1 wasn't a shot of it breaking the sound barrier, but of something else.
