Mental Test

Take the test presented here to determine whether you are losing it or not. The pictures of London below the questions are so you do not see the answers until you have made your answer.

Grab some coffee, breathe deeply to clear your mind and only then begin.

What do you put in a toaster?


Answer: “Bread”  If you said “toast”. give up now and something else

Try not to hurt yourself. If you said, bread, go to Question 2.


Say ‘silk’ five times. Now spell ‘silk.’ What do cows drink?

Answer: Cows drink water. If you said ‘milk,’ don’t attempt the next question. Your brain is over-stressed and may even overheat. Content yourself with reading a more appropriate literature such as Auto World. However, if you said ‘water’, proceed to question 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 from glass. If you said ‘green bricks,’ why are you still reading these?
If you said ‘glass,’ go on to Question 4.

It’s twenty years ago, and 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 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 can do so 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 ,  West Germany , or ‘no man’s land’?

Answer: You don’t bury survivors.
If you said ANYTHING else, you’re a dunce and you must stop. If you said, ‘You don’t bury survivors’, proceed to the next question.

  1. I’m proud of myself. I got 4 out of 5 so I’ve still got a few years left until I have to worry.

    Unfortunately I gave the answer as electricity for the 1st question which you say is wrong.

    Oh well, you can’t be 100% all the time. I’ll just have to suck it up.
