Dementia test

Following on from the time shift posting where I rambled and mumbled on about how our awarness of time had changed since retirement. I decided that 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  way to gauge how good your memory is. Some people may think it is too easy but the ones with memory problems may have difficulty. Take the test to determine if you're losing it or not. The small highlighted text below the questions are so you don't see the answers until you've decided on your answer.

OK, relax, clear your mind and begin.

1. What do you put in a toaster?

Answer: Bread, if you said toast, start taking the pills now!

2. Quickly say 'silk' five times. Now spell 'silk.' What do cows drink?

Answer: Cows drink water, if you said milk, take and extra pill.

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 of glass.

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.
How old is the bus driver?

Answer: You were driving the bus, and you don't remember your age?

Now what did I do with my memory pills?
