    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. Take the following test and determine if you are losing it or are still "with it."

    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," 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 greenhouse made from?

    Answer: Greenhouses are made from glass. If you said, "green bricks," what the devil are you still doing reading these questions?????

    If you said "glass," then go on to Question 4.

    4. Twenty years ago, a plane was flying at 20,000 feet over Germany. If you recall, Germany at the time was politically divided into West Germany and East Germany. Anyway, during the flight, TWO of the engines failed.The pilot, realizing that the last remaining engine is also failing, decides on a crash landing procedure..... Unfortunately the third engine fails before he has time to attempt an emergency landing, and the plane crashes smack in the middle of "no man's land" between East Germany and West Germany.

    Where would you bury the survivors? . . . in 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," proceed to the next question.

    5. If the hour hand on a clock moves 1/60 of a degree every minute 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 in your pencil, 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 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 driver?

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

    Now pass this along to all your "friends" and hope they do better then you did!

    I lost it at the greenhouse question and I misread the question on the cows-thought it read what do cows give?!!!
    Therefore I am demented and I can't read or spell anymore!Ugh!

    Got them all right except the last one. I was too busy doing the math to read the fact that I was the bus driver. [​IMG]

    Which only proves the test is flawed, because we all know I'm demented! [​IMG]

    Good grief, I actually started writing out a table for the last one, but then happened to re-read the sentence starting with "You are driving..." and slapped my forehead. So, I suppose that I got them all... but I'm still quite certain that I've got a screw loose.[​IMG]

    I mean, why would I be driving a bus to Wales? I have enough trouble driving a car on the right side of the road, let alone a bus on the left.[​IMG]

    By the way, in question #3, there's a space between "green" and "house." I figured out what the test had in mind (very funny, ha ha), but greenhouse is supposed to be a single word. So technically, green bricks would also be a valid answer, and anyone that answered green bricks should consider their cognitive faculties quite healthy... [​IMG]
