Yeah yeah...my sister sent me another cute one in email today.
Subject: Dementia Test
'It's that time of year to take our annual senior citizen test'
Exercise of the brain is as important as exercise of the muscles.
As we grow older, it's important to keep mentally alert.
If you don't use it, you lose it!
Below is a very private way to gauge your loss or non-loss of intelligence.
There are only 5 questions, so don't get all excited and confused yet.
Take the test presented here to determine if you're MENTALLY ALERT
1. What do you put in a toaster?
Answer: 'bread.' If you said 'toast,' maybe you should give up now and 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,' maybe you shouldn't even attempt to answer the next question. Your brain is apparently over-stressed and may even overheat.
Content yourself with reading more appropriate literature such as Auto World. However, 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 green house made from?
Answer: Greenhouses are made from glass. If you said 'green bricks,' why are you still reading these???
If you said 'glass,' 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 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 can do so and the plane crashes on the border. In which country are the survivors buried?
Answer: You don't bury survivors.
If you said ANYTHING else, you're in real bad shape and for your own sake you must stop. If you said, 'You don't bury survivors', proceed to the next question.
5. Without using a calculator - You are driving a bus from Toronto to New York City.
In Toronto, 17 people get on the bus.
In Buffalo, six people get off the bus and nine people
In Rochester, two people get off and four get on. In Syracuse, 11 people get off and 16 people get on In
three people get off and five people get on. In Albany, six people get off and three get on.
In New York, everyone gets off.
What's the name of the bus driver?
Answer: Oh, for crying out loud!
Don't you remember your own name?
Or have you forgotten it was YOU driving the BUS!!
Now pass this along to all your friends and pray they do better than you.
