We will no longer have to endure that "memory/math" torture with the Hal9000 voice.
I find it strangely comforting. And I think I only made 1 mistake in all of the ones I did in first year.
It's a fun party game after people have had a few beers though. And among my 40+ age group, any mention of a memory test is sure to cause acid reflux even among the otherwise healthy. mwahahahaha

This study investigated the effects of test anxiety, intelligence, arithmetic ability, and age on the Paced Auditory Serial Addition Test (PASAT) performance of 45 participants ages 16 to 54. Level of anxiety as measured by a short form measure of state anxiety and retrospective report during the PASAT appeared to have no significant effect on performance. Intelligence and arithmetic ability, however, together accounted for 46% of the variance on PASAT scores. Although no significant correlation was found between PASAT performance and age, those over 26 years of age performed significantly better on the 2.0 second paced presentation.
It doesn't say that the self-induced stress from the PASAT test gave you residual pseudo-relapse symptoms...
