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 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?????
Dang..... If you said "glass", then go on to question four.


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


Last Chance: Can you name the five American Presidents who are NOT
buried in the United States?

ANSWER: Reagan, Ford, Carter, H.W. Bush, Clinton, and "W" Bush. If you tried to figure out where to bury the survivors on Question #4, you
probably screwed this one up too!
