I got this from a friend...check this out "It's that time of year to take our annual dementia test again." Exercise of the brain is as important as exercise of the muscles. As we grow older, it's important that we keep mentally alert . The saying; "If you don't use it, you will lose it," also applies to the brain, so ... below is a private way to gauge your loss or retention of intelligence.. So, take the following test presented here and determine if you are losing it or you still "have it." The spaces below are so you don't see the answers until you have responded. OK, relax, clear your mind and ... begin. well, MAYBE NOT THAT CLEAR! 1. What do you put in a toaster? Answer: "bread." If you said "toast," then give up now and go do something else. Try not to hurt yourself or handle sharp objects. If you said, "bread," go to Question 2. 2. Say "silk" five times. Now spell "silk." What do cows drink? Answer: Cows drink water. If you said "milk," please do not attempt the next question. Your brain is obviously over stressed. It may be that you need to content yourself with reading something more appropriate such as Dr. Seuss. If you said "water" then proceed to question 3. 3. If a red house is made from red bricks and a blue house is made from blue bricks and a pink house is made from pink bricks and a black house is made from black bricks, what is a green house made from? Answer: Greenhouses are made from glass. If you said "green bricks," what the hell are you still doing here reading these questions? If you said "glass," then go on to Question 4. 4. It's twenty years ago, and a plane is flying at 20,000 feet over Germany (Please recall, Germany at the time was politically divided into West Germany and East Germany.) Anyhow, during the flight, one of the engines fails. The pilot, realizing that the remaining engine is also failing, decides on a crash landing procedure. Unfortunately, the engine fails before he has time and the plane fatally crashes smack in the middle of "no man's land" between East Germany and West Germany. Where would you bury the survivors? East Germany or West Germany or in "no man's land?" Answer: You do not, of course, bury survivors. If you said ANYTHING else, you are a dunce and must NEVER try to rescue anyone from a plane crash. Your efforts would not be appreciated. If you said, "Don't bury the survivors or something similar," proceed to the next question. 5. Without using a calculator - You are driving a bus from London to Milford Haven in Wales. In London, seventeen people get on the bus. In Reading, six people get off the bus and nine people get on. In Swindon, two people get off and four get on. In Cardiff, eleven people get off and sixteen people get on. In Swansea, three people get off and five people get on In Carmathen, six people get off and three get on. You then arrive at Milford Haven. Okay, what was the name of the bus driver? Answer: Oh, for crying out loud! Don't you remember your own name? It was YOU driving! i'm gonna be honest here, i got the wrong answer for number 5, which number are you?
