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. Take the test presented here to determine if you're losing it or not. OK, relax, clear your mind and begin.

1. What do you put in a toaster?

2. Say "silk" five times. Now spell "silk." What do cows drink?

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?

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?

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, 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?

When you've answered all the question click the 'read more' button for the answers.

#1 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 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 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 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.

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

PS: 95% of people fail most of the questions!!

  5. Love these - some are older than I am! My father used to love "testing" us with these questions. Like who is buried in Grant's Tomb? Well, technically no one because buried means under the ground and Grant's Tomb is a mausoleum - with the remains above the ground. Grant's Tomb contains Grant, his wife and his horse.

  10. I am a genius! Brilliant!

    I would point out that following the logic in your 'green house' question, you spelled it green house, not greenhouse - technically green would be correct. Just saying.

  15. I agree with Barb about the green house.
    I aced it also but not because I'm a genius; it's because I've seen the test before. :)

  21. For some reason reading this is a lot easier than hearing them aloud - verbally I would fail every one.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I can still say that I don't have dementia. hehe

  23. I must be a flipping genius. I got them all correct. I even spelled my name properly and I didn't have to look at my ID. Besides, I'd seen this one about a year ago and knew it was important to read carefully.

    LMAO

  27. Funny. I got them all right, but I've seen most of these before, so I really cheated.

  30. Shucks! Ya'd think I could pass a test like this ... even at my advanced age. Methinks I must have been distracted ;--)
