How’s your aging intelligence? Take the following test presented
here and determine if you are losing it or are still "with it." The
spaces are so you don’t see the answers until you have made your
own….OK, relax, clear our 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 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
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. 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 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
