Slide 1: Exercise of the brain is as important as exercise of the muscles. As we grow older, it's important that we keep mentally alert. The saying; "If you don't use it, you will lose it" also applies to the brain.      The following is a very private way to gauge your current state of intelligence. Take the following test and determine if you are losing it or are still "with it."    After you answer the question, scroll down to the answer.   OK, relax, clear your mind and....   begin. The Brain Challenge Slide 2: 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. Slide 3: 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. Slide 4: 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," what the devil are you still doing here reading these questions ?? If you said "glass," then go on to Question 4. Slide 5: 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. 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? Slide 6: 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 & nine people get on. In Swindon, two people get off & four get on. In Cardiff, 11 people get off & 16 people get on. In Swansea, three people get off & five people get on. In Carmathen, six people get off & three get on. You then arrive at Milford Haven.   What was the name of the bus driver? Without using a calculator -- Answer: Oh, for crying out loud! Don't you remember your own name? It was YOU ... the very first line says that you're driving the bus). Slide 7: All those friends that are laughing at your memory…send this to them to see how THEY do! But ssh! Don’t tell them you didn’t do so well.
