Friday, November 04, 2011
Our yearly Dementia text
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?
‘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 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?
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 Swinton, 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 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?
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!!
