Picked up from another forum - an exercise in FUN

Your Yearly Dementia 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 how your memory compares to the last test. Some may think it is too easy but the ones with memory problems may have difficulty. Take the test presented here to determine if you're losing it or not. The spaces below are so you don't see the answers until you've made your answer. OK, relax, clear your mind and begin..

1. What do you put in a toaster?






Answer: 'bread.' If you said 'toast' 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,' don't attempt the next question. Your brain is over-stressed and may even overheat. Content yourself with reading a 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 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 , West Germany ,

Or no man's land'?








Answer: You don't bury survivors.
If you said ANYTHING else, you're a dunce and 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 London to

Milford Haven in Wales .. In London , 17 people get on the bus.
In Reading , 6 people get off the bus and 9 people get on.
In Swindon, 2 people get off and 4 get on.
In Cardiff , 11 people get off and 16 people get on.
In Swansea , 3 people get off and 5 people get on.
In Carmathen, 6 people get off and 3 get on.
You then arrive at Milford Haven ..











Without scrolling back to review, how old is the bus driver?










Answer: Oh, for crying out loud!
Don't you remember your own age? It was YOU driving the bus!

Bill,
I discovered a method years ago to keep things going.
I created multiple personalities to cover different task.
By assigning things to the other people in me head, 1 or 2 can take a rest and 3 can work on things.
We all have different opinions at times but find agreement most times.

Agreed, so do I.... Not me...
Your both idiots....
Another day in shooter land....

so you could be me? - some days

I have a theory which a gave to a doctor friend of mine recently, it goes like this,

(abridged version)

In the West - they are looking after us SO WELL - allowing us to live longer and indeed allowing themselves, (as doctors), to live longer - so one day we will all have "dementia" and nobody will know what is happening or what is going on .... even the doctors

and that's when the Chinese, Indian and Martians move in - has it happened??

Just a theory - I think?

Three ladies were discussing the travails of getting older.

One said, 'Sometimes I catch myself with a jar of mayonnaise in my hand, while standing in front of the refrigerator, and I can't remember whether I need to put it away, or start making a sandwich.'

The second lady chimed in with, 'Yes, sometimes I find myself on the landing of the stairs and can't remember whether I was on my way up or on my way down.'

The third one responded, ' Well, ladies, I'm glad I don't have that problem. Touch wood,' as she rapped her knuckles on the table, and then said, 'That must be the door, I'll get it.'
