Cory Vaillancourt

Cory Vaillancourt is vacationing in Las Vegas this week; in lieu of his regular column, he submitted this challenging maze. See how long it takes you to complete it! Time yourself, and compare your results to the chart below to find a frank evaluation of your intelligence!

-          60 seconds:        Never read my column again, please.

-          30 seconds:        Going to pre-school still?

-          10 seconds:        Give yourself a pat on the back. With a knife.

-          5  seconds:          You must be some sort of rocket surgeon.

-          1 second:             Up here it’s lonely, like Rick Astley.
