Our Yearly Dementia Test

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!
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 this test to determine if you're losing it or not.
The spaces below are so you don't see the answers until after you've answered them.  

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? 


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 a 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 greenhouse 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 still have most of my marbles. I missed the last one because I couldn't have been driving the bus. I just got my driver's license renewed, and it doesn't permit me to drive a bus. :)
