It's that time of year 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 your loss or non-loss of

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?

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?

Answer: 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 green house 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. It's twenty years ago, and 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 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 can do so
and the plane fatally crashes smack in the middle of "no man's land" between
East Germany and West Germany. Where would you bury the survivors? East
Germany, West Germany, or "no man's land?"

Answer: You don't bury survivors. If you said ANYTHING else, you're a dunce and you must stop. If you said,
"You don't bury survivors," proceed to the next 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 crying out loud! Don't you remember your own name? It was YOU!!
