THE CLOSE-UP — I'm a fairly competitive person, but not in the usual areas. When I was a kid I was insanely competitive when it came to sports and games. I was known to throw a tantrum or two, break some Nintendo controllers and kick my fair share of basketballs. But turns out I'd get so angry because I wasn't very athletic and my video-game skills were horrendous at best, so I lost in these games a lot. Like a whole lot.
I grew up, accepted my lack of athletic prowess and started getting competitive in other areas. I thought I was maybe kind of smart and would get competitive with friends, family and complete strangers when it came to riddles, observing and figuring things out. Turns out I wasn't great at that either, and I'm still looking for what thing I'm good at. I'm now nearly 40 and I'm starting to realize I may never find it because there is a good possibility it doesn't exist. I bring this up because this video has the intellectual and observant side of my competitive nature creeping out.
This video shows extreme close-ups of everyday objects and the challenge is to try and guess what it is before the camera zooms out and reveals the item. I'd tell you how many I got right, but you'll all likely destroy my number and I'd like to walk away today with at least a little pride.
Watch the video, then challenge your friends and see how can get the most. Then report back to me with how many you got right and I'll lie and always tell you I got one more. Even if you got them all, which I kind of doubt people will, I'll just tell you there was one more hidden one that I figured out that you didn't. So there.
