Dementia Test

Our Yearly Dementia Test-- only 4 questions 

It's that time of year for us 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 how your memory compares to the last test. Some may think it is too easy but the ones with memory problems may have difficulty. Take the test presented here to determine if you're losing it or not.
The spaces below are so you don't see the answers until you've made your answer. 

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 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 bricks, 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. 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!! 

If you pass this along to your friends, pray they do better than you.
PS: 95% of people fail most of the questions!!

I did horrible! I said MILK & I said green bricks & on & on. I'm only 36. What will I be like in 20 years??

KSK said...

I must confess.. I was a little cocky with the cow one. I had heard it before.. so I thought "Duh! Milk."
Ouch. That hurt a little! ;)
*but I DID get the greenhouse correct!

Joanna Jenkins said...

It's official. My mind is mush, my brain is gone and I didn't get any of the answers right ;-)

ipenka said...

Haha, darn it, these were good. So farms don't have ponds of milk for the cow to drink?

Pat said...

I passed, but I remembered this from before. THAT time I made it all the way to the bus question!

Al Penwasser said...

I may be middle-aged, but my memory is still sharp. For instance, I need to get a prescription refilled this afternoon. I remember the LAST time I went. As my medical professional was writing the scrip, he looked at my chart and said, "Hey, it's a been a year since you were here last. Let's check your prostate."
Oh, yeah, I remember that.
The damndest thing, he was a dentist.

Al Penwasser said...

Oh, and by the way, I've fallen for that toast thing before.

Sue said...

These are always so much fun. My husband collects them, and I will show him yours.



SherilinR said...

Pearl said...

Eva Gallant said...
