below is a very private way to gage your loss/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?
2. Say "silk" five times. Now spell "silk". What do cows drink?
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?
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"?
5. If the hour hand on a clock moves 1/60th of a degree every minute then

Answer 1: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
Answer 2: 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 3: Greenhouses are made from glass. If you said "! green bricks", what
the heck are you still doing here reading these questions????? Dang.....
If you said "glass", then go on to question four.
Answer 4: 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. You! r efforts would not be appreciated. ...... If you said, "You
don't bury survivors" then proceed to the next question.
Answer 5: 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.
