>>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,
>>so.........
>>
>>Below is a very private way to gage your loss or non-loss of
>>intelligence. So take the following test presented here and determine
>>if you are losing it or are still a MENSA candidate.
>>
>>OK, relax, clear your mind and....... begin.
>>
>>1. 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.

>>2. 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 overstressed 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 three.

>>
>>
>>
>>
>>
>>
>>
>>
>>
>>

>>Answer: Greenhouses are made from glass. If you said "green bricks",

>>4. Twenty 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 the
>>engine fails before he has time and the plane 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 are a real idiot and 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" then proceed to the next
>>question.
>>

>>5. 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 one hour?
>>
>>
>>
>>
>>
>>
>>
>>
>>
>>
>>
>>
>>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.
