Your Yearly Dementia Test
« on: June 12, 2010, 09:14:50 AM »
                
  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.

  Take the test presented here to determine if
  you're losing it or not. T

   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 brick s, 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!!
                  
 PS: 95% of people fail most of the
 questions!!

I know I did...sigh...

I read these to my partner and he got all of them right except he missed the part about the bus driver's age.  I wonder if there is a difference if he would have read the questions himself instead of me reading them to him?  Or, he's just smart?  Cause I got many wrong.
