TEST FOR DEMENTIA
Exercise of the brain is important. As we grow older….past 30…. it is important that we keep mentally alert. Use it or lose it, particularly applies to the brain.
So here is a way to gauge your loss or non-loss of intelligence. Take the following test and determine if you are “losing it” or if you are still “with it.”
CLEAR YOUR MIND - BEGIN
What do you put in a toaster?
Say “silk” five times. Now spell “Silk”. What do cows
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
If the hour hand on a clock moves 1/60th of
a degree every minute then how many degrees will the hour hand move in
Do not use 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 & 3 get on. You then arrive at Milford
Haven---What was the name of the bus driver??
BULLETIN BOARD SPRING/SUMMER – 2012 PAGE 4
Answers for DEMENTIA TEST
Bread---if you said “toast” then give up now and go do something
else. Try not to hurt yourself. If you said “Bread”---proceed to
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 a Child’s book.
Green houses are made from glass. If you said “green bricks.” What
the devil are you still doing here reading these questions???? If
you said “glass”… go to Question 4.
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. If you messed up, turn your pencil in and exit
the room. Everyone else proceed to the final question.
Oh……for crying out loud!! Don’t you remember?? It was YOU!!! If you
pass this along to your friends, hope they do better than you did!!!!
If you got all the above correct----you are smart enough to move to the final question---
20+ years ago, 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 of the engines fail. The pilot, realizing that the last remaining engine is also failing, decides on a crash landing procedure. Unfortunately that engine fails before he has time 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 or West Germany or in “No Man’s Land”???
Answer: You don’t ….. of course….bury survivors. If you said ANYTHING else… . you must NEVER try to rescue anyone from a plane crash. Your efforts would not be appreciated. If you said, “ Don’t bury the Survivors”
….YOUR BRAIN IS WORKING WELL------BREATH A SIGH OF RELIEF----- YOU DON’T HAVE DEMENTIA!!
