Can you focus carefully enough to count the number of times the team in white passes the basketball. Go to this web page and watch the video, then come back here, click on the the heading ("Pay attention") so you can put your answer in the comments.

I lost track of the number of passes. But I did see something that does not belong.

I counted 14 passes by the white team. I also saw what Liz mentioned.

I saw 14 passes but when the ball suddenly was in a new persons hands without my seeing the pass (which would be 15 passes) I backed the video up to see if I could see that pass (pass number 10). The view of that pass was obstructed by what Liz mentioned. How could I have not seen that? Maybe if you are really focused on one thing you miss some really big, black, and hairy other things that are right there in front of you.

I saw it the first time I watched, but that was only becuase I didn't read the directions and was not counting!

Interesting test. I watched that thing at least four times before I saw the mystery beast. I had my son watch it and he saw it on his second time.
