Dementia Test

Thought I would post this quick test for my visitors from Blog Explosion. O.K. You might have to spend longer then 30 sec's though. Peace Greg

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
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 overstressed 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 t ime 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. If the hour hand on a clock moves 1/60 of a degree every minute then how
many degrees will the hour hand move in one hour?

Answer: One degree. If you said "360 degrees" or anything other than "one
degree," you are to be congratulated on getting this far, but you are
obviously out of your league. Turn your pencil in and exit the room.
Everyone else proceed to the final question.

6. 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 in. 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 dr iver?

Answer: Oh, for crying out loud! Don't you remember? It was YOU!!

Now pass this along to all your "smart friends" and hope they do better than
you did.
