Brain teasers

I found this so amusing, perhaps you can try it if you haven't tried this before.

How smart are you?

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 gauge your loss or non-loss of intelligence. So
take the following test presented here and determine if you are losing it
or are still "with it." The spaces below are so you don't see the answers
until you have
made your own....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 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.

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 greenhouse made from?































Answer: Greenhouses are made from glass. If you said "green bricks," what
are you still doing here reading these questions?? If you said "glass,



Then on to Question 4.


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 dunce 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 1/60 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.





6. 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,
six people get off the bus and nine people get on. In Sweden, two people
setoff and four get on. In Cardiff, 11 people get off and 16 people get on.
In Swansea, three
people get off and five people get on. In Carmathen, six people get off and
three get on. You then arrive at Milford Haven. What was the name of the
bus driver?




































Answer: Oh, for crying out loud! Don't you remember your own name? It was
YOU, you dummy...the very first line says that you're driving the bus.

Now pass this along to all your "friends" and hope they do better then you
did.
Think before you answer.
