Test for Dementia

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 very private way to gauge your loss or
non-loss of intelligence.
So, take the following test presented here and
determine if you are losing it or are still "with
it." The spaces below are so you don't see the
answers until you have made your answer.
OK, relax, clear your mind and... begin.


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.
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 and may even overheat. It may
be that you need to content yourself with reading
something more appropriate such as Children's World.
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 devil 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 (If you will recall, Germany
at the time was politically divided into West Germany
and East Germany.) Anyway, during the flight, TWO of
the engines fail. The pilot, realizing that the last
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 don't, of course, bury survivors.
If you said ANYTHING else, you are a real dunce and
you must NEVER try to rescue anyone from a plane
crash. Your efforts would not be appreciated. If you
said, "Don't bury the survivors", then proceed to the
next question.
5. Without using a calculator - You are driving a bus
from London to Milford Haven in Wales. In London, 17
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, 11 people
get off and 16 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. What was the name of the bus

Answer: Oh, for crying out loud! Don't you remember
your own name? It was YOU!!
Now pass this along to all your "smart friends" and
hope they do better than you did.

It is wise not to argue with an idiot, others may not
be able to tell the difference.
