Remember the Dementia Test I gave you before? Here's another one with a bonus round:

1. Y ou are participating in a race. You overtake the second person. What position are you in?



















Answer: If you answered that you are first, then you are
absolutely wrong! If you overtake the second person and you take his place, you are second!




2. If you overtake the last person, then you are...?




















Answer: If you answered that you are second to last, then you are wrong again. Tell me, how can you overtake the LAST Person?


3. V ery tricky math! Note: This must be done in your head only.

Do NOT use paper and pencil or a calculator. Try it.


Take 1000 and add 40 to it. Now add another 1000. Now add 30. Add another 1000. Now add 20. Now add another 1000
Now add 10. What is the total?




















Answer: Did you get 5000? The correct answer is actually 4100.



4. Mary's father has five daughters: 1. Nana, 2. Nene, 3. Nini, 4. Nono. What is the name of the fifth daughter?






















Answer: Nunu? NO! Of course not. Her name is Mary. Read the question again





BONUS ROUND!!!

There is a mute person who wants to buy a toothbrush. By
imitating the action of brushing one's teeth he successfully
expresses himself to the shopkeeper and the purchase is
done.

Now if there is a blind man who wishes to buy a pair of
sunglasses, how should he express himself?




















Answer: He just has to open his mouth and ask, so simple.














How many did you get right? I got 1 right. tongue.gif

Sorry guys, the video file was to big.... I will still be finding ways to try to post the video... closedeyes.gif

entry Dec 14 2006, 05:35 PM
ok... lets hope that this video works....

if it does, let me give you some background about the video...

This machine was built as a collaborative effort between the Robert M. Trammell Music Conservatory and the Sharon Wick School of Engineering at the University of Iowa . Amazingly, 97% of the machines components came from John Deere Industries and Irrigation equipment of Bancroft Iowa , yes farm equipment! It took the team a combined 13,029 hours of set-up, alignment, calibration, and tuning before filming this video but as you can see it was WELL worth the effort. It is now on display in the Matthew Gerhard Alumni Hall at the University of Iowa and is already slated to be donated to the Smithsonian. ...

I wrote a poem for school to enter in a contest... Here it is and leave a comment on whether you like it or not!

A World Apart

A place
A world a p a r t
Different, special, unique

Roaming through its ridges
Ridges of thoughts
That is the makings of life
The heart of our wits

Exploring the cracks
The crevices
Every little memory
Taken out
To be chewed on
Savored
Swallowed

Running through a meadow
In full bloom
The tiny blossoms
Blossoms of fantasy
Make-believe
A faraway world
With only you


Alone.



Wading through a puddle
A puddle of knowledge
Wetting your feet
Feeling the chills
Crawl through your spine
Through your brain
Filling your body
Every pore
With knowledge

Climbing a tree
Its opaque green leaves
Branch in all directions
Giving shade to all
A dark,
But light covering
Intimidating
Yet inviting
The branches
Long, tender
The tree of dreams
The branches of ideas
The leaves of goals

The thoughts
The memories
The make-believe
The knowledge
The dreams
Ideas
The goals

All in one place
A world apart
Different, special, unique

The mind.
The soul.

Your imagination.

Chorus

2005-2006

Cheney and his quail gun, here we go, we’re almost done
1, 2, 3, 4, I CAN’T TAKE IT ANYMORE

We didn’t start the fire,
It was always burnin’
Since the world’s been turnin’
We didn’t start the fire,
Even though we’re gone,
It’ll still burn on
And on, and on, and on, and on!

We had to perform it in front of our class blush.gif comment on it!

And I had to make a powerpoint presentation too with pictures, I might post it on here later...

Test for Dementia

It's that time of year to take our annual senior citizen test.

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 very private way to gauge your loss or non-loss of intelligence.

Take the test presented here to determine if you're losing it or not. The spaces below are so you don't see the answers until you've made your answer.

OK, relax, clear your mind and begin.



1. What do you put in a toaster?




Answer: "bread." If you said "toast," give up now and 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," 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.


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.


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


5. 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 Swindon, two people get off 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!!





Now pass this along to all your friends and pray they do better than you.

PS: 95% of people fail most of the questions


and I got all but one of them right!!! rolleyes.gif

We all know those cute little computer symbols called "emoticons" where:

smile.gif means a smile

sad.gif is a frown


Well, how about some "a!@icons"? Here goes:

(_!_) a regular butt

(__!__) a fat butt

(!) a tight butt

(_*_) a sore butt

{_!_} a swishy butt

(_o_) an butt hole

(_x_) kiss my butt

(_zzz_) a tired butt

(_E=mc2_) a smart butt

(_$_) Rich butt

(_?_) Dumb butt

and you can replace all the butts with a$#.

I decided that it would be easier to post this...

Gold Wrapping Paper....

I received this from a friend who had a choice to make. It said that I had a choice to make too. I've chosen. Now it's your turn to choose.

The story goes that some time ago a mother punished her 5 year old daughter for wasting a roll of expensive gold wrapping paper. Money was tight and she became even more upset when the child used the gold paper to decorate a box to put under the Christmas tree.

Nevertheless, the little girl brought the gift box to her mother the next morning and said, "This is for you, Momma."

The mother was embarrassed by her earlier over reaction, but her anger flared again when she opened the box and found it was empty. She spoke to her daughter in a harsh manner "Don't you know, young lady, when you give someone a present there's supposed to be something inside the package?"

She had tears in her eyes and said, "Oh, Momma, it's not empty! I blew kisses into it until it was full." The mother was crushed. She fell on her knees and put her arms around her little girl, and she begged her forgiveness for her thoughtless anger.

An accident took the life of the child only a short time later, and it is told that the mother kept that gold box by her bed for all the years of her life. Whenever she was discouraged or faced difficult problems she would open the box and take out an imaginary kiss and remember the love of the child who had put it there.

In a very real sense, each of us, as human beings, have been given a Golden box filled with unconditional love and kisses from our children, family, and friends. There is no more precious possession anyone could hold.

You now have two choices:
1. Pass this on to your friends, or
2. Delete it and act like it didn't touch your heart.

As you can see, I took choice No. 1.
Friends are like angels who lift us to our feet, when our wings have trouble remembering how to fly. If you receive this more than once in return just know that your friends have also thought of you.

> 2) The first plane crashing against the Twin Towers was flight number
> 11.
>
> 3) Flight 11 was carrying 92 passengers. 9 + 2 = 11

> 4) Flight 77 which also hit Twin Towers, was carrying 65 passengers.
> 6+5 = 11

> 5) The tragedy was on September 11, or 9/11 as it is now known. 9 + 1+ 1 =
> 11
>
> 6) The date is equal to the US emergency services telephone number 911.
> 9 + 1 + 1 = 11.

>>holy book:
>>"For it is written that a son of Arabia would awaken a fearsome Eagle. the
