Let’s play a little game. It’s called, “How many times can you spot the hunky magician?” We’ve all familiar with this fun game right? Wrong.

Sounds pretty simple huh? Well let’s go ahead and see how well you do. Click on the video below.
How as simple as you thought huh? This experiment proves that the word “multitask” is a bit of a misnomer. The brain can really only focus on one task at a time in order to maximize functionality. Given this experiment’s effective results, I hope you think twice the next time you decide to text and perform a Criss Angel SCARECROW or eat a popsicle and shoot your BOW AND ARROW.
