'H2IQ' Revisited

You need a mind as slippery as an Eel, and a talent for seeing
things from a different angle to understand H2IQ. A popular h2g2 quiz for several years, H2IQ

returns to once again tease and frustrate with questions and problems for you to solve. In each QED

I will repeat a question once used in the 'infamous' H2IQ quiz and all you have to do is answer it in

the 'H2IQ Revisited' conversation below. All those who give vaugely the correct answer will have

their name printed in the next published QED. Now for the question...


Close you eyes and move 5 steps to the right.

Then 3 steps to the left.

Forward five steps.

Turn 45 degrees.

Fall over.

Stand up.

Finally flap your arms like a chicken.


What do you see?
