Mental Test

 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,

 Below is a very private way to gage your loss or
 non-loss of intelligence. So take the following test
 presented here and determine if you are losing it or
 are still a MENSA candidate.

 OK, relax, clear your mind and....... begin.

 1. What do you put in a toaster?

 The answer is 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 overstressed 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 three.

 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?

 Answer: Greenhouses are made from glass. If you said
 "green bricks", what the heck are you still doing here
 reading these questions????? If you said
 "glass", then go on to question four.

 4. Twenty years ago, 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 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 idiot 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

 5. If the hour hand on a clock moves 1/60th of a
 degree every minute then how many degrees will the
 hour hand move in one hour?

 Answer: One degree. If you said "360 degrees" or
 anything other than "one degree", you are to be
 congratulated on getting this far, but you are
 obviously out of your league. Turn your pencil in and
 exit the room. Everyone else proceed to the final

 6. 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 heaven sake! It was YOU, you dummy.
 Read the first line!!!
