    It's that time of year to take our annual dementia test again."

    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 private way to gauge your loss or retention of intelligence.
    So, take the following test presented here and determine if you are losing
    it or you still "have it." The spaces below are so you don't see the
    answers until you have responded.

    OK, relax, clear your mind and .... begin. well, MAYBE NOT THAT CLEAR!

    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 or handle sharp objects. 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. It may be that you
    need to content yourself with reading something more appropriate such as Dr.
    Seuss. If you said "water" then 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," what
    are you still doing here reading these questions? If you said "glass," then
    go on to Question 4.

    4. It's twenty years ago, and a plane is flying at 20,000 feet over Germany
    (Please recall, Germany at the time was politically divided into West
    Germany and East Germany.) Anyhow, during the flight, one of the engines
    fails. The pilot, realizing that the remaining engine is also failing,
    decides on a crash landing procedure. Unfortunately, the engine fails
    before he has time 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 or West Germany or in "no man's land?"

    Answer: You do not, of course, bury survivors. If you said ANYTHING else,
    you are a dunce and must NEVER try to rescue anyone from a plane crash.
    Your efforts would not be appreciated. If you said, "Don't bury the
    survivors or something similar," proceed
    to the next question.

    5. Without using a calculator - You are driving a bus from London to Milford
    Haven in Wales. In London, seventeen 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, eleven people get off and sixteen
    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. Okay, what was the name of the bus driver?

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

    Now pass this along to all your "smart friends" and hope they do better than
    you did.

    P.S. 95% of people reputedly fail most of the questions!
