Your Yearly Dementia Test-- only 4 questions



Our Yearly Dementia Test

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?










Spoiler: show
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?








Spoiler: show
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?







Spoiler: show
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?




Spoiler: show
Answer: Oh, for crying out loud!
Don't you remember your own age?
It was YOU driving the bus!!

Fact 2:A page with ink on it is heavier than an unprinted page

Done and dusted! I think I did pretty well if I say so myself....

I wrote my answers in the blank boxes. How long until you mark them Tony? I hope its soon because I am having alot of trouble reading the forum posts with all this pen on my screen.

Does anyone know a good ink cleaner that won't melt the screen?
