    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
    own...DO NOT CHEAT!!!!.....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

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

    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.
    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

    Answer: Oh, for crying out loud! Don't you remember your
    own name? It was YOU, you dummy...the very first line
    says that you're driving the bus. Now pass this along to
    all your "friends" and hope they do better then you did!
