Exercise for the Brain
Very, very tough!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Have
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 very private way to gauge your loss or non-loss of intelligence.
So, take the following test presented here and determine if you are losing it
or are still "with it." The spaces below are so you don't see the answers
until you have made your answer.
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. 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
and may even overheat. It may be that you need to content yourself
with reading something more appropriate such as Children's World. 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 the devil 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. (If you will recall, Germany at the time was politically
divided into West Germany and East Germany.) Anyway, during the flight,
TWO of the 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 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 don't, of course, bury survivors.
If you said ANYTHING else, you are a real dunce and you must NEVER try to rescue
anyone from a plane crash. Your efforts would not be appreciated If
you said, "Don't bury the survivors", then 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,
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?
Answer: Oh, for crying out loud!
Don't you remember your own name? It was YOU!!
It is wise not to argue with an idiot, others may not be able to tell the difference.
