    Red face Maxine's 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!
    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 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?






    Answer: Cows drink water. If you said 'milk' don't attempt the next question. Your brain is over-stressed and may even overheat.
    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. 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 quilt, therefore I am.

    Ditter, you're back! I have missed your funny posts.
    I am too POSITIVE to be doubtful, too OPTIMISTIC to be fearful and way to DETERMINED to be defeated.

    Hi Ditter! Thank goodness I can still answer all those questions. But don't ask me what I had for lunch yesterday!
    Ah, the joys of growing older~~~~~ Good to have you back on Board. Hugs.

    Welcome back Ditter and what better way to come back than with a real killer quiz-fest. My poor ol' 82 yr. old brain gets fogged up real easy without trying to add this one up.

    Just gave this test to my daughter, who is a mental health nurse. She missed two and four, and I thought she was going to fall over laughing!
