  • Are You MENSA Material - Take a Quick Test

    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.


    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 go on to question four.


    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 1/60th 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.


    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
    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 heaven sake! It was YOU, Read the first line!!!

  • When I was:

    Four years old: My daddy can do anything.

    Five years old: My daddy knows a whole lot.

    Six years old: My dad is smarter than your dad.

    Eight years old: My dad doesn't know exactly everything.

    Ten years old: In the olden days, when my dad grew up, things were sure different.

    Twelve years old: Oh, well, naturally, Dad doesn't know anything about that. He is too old to remember his childhood.

    Fourteen years old: Don't pay any attention to my dad. He is so old-fashioned.

    Twenty-one years old: Him? My Lord, he's hopelessly out of date.

    Twenty-five years old: Dad knows about it, but then he should, because he has been around so long.

    Thirty years old: Maybe we should ask Dad what he thinks. After all, he's had a lot of experience.

    Thirty-five years old: I'm not doing a single thing until I talk to Dad.

    Forty years old: I wonder how Dad would have handled it. He was so wise.

    Fifty years old: I'd give anything if Dad were here now so I could talk this over with him.

    Too bad I didn't appreciate how smart he was. I could have learned a lot from him.

  • Dear Dogs,

    When I say to move, it means go someplace else, not switch positions
    with each other so there are still two dogs in the way.

    The dishes with the paw print are yours and contain your food. The
    other dishes are mine and contain my food. Please note, placing a paw
    print in the middle of my plate and food does not stake a claim for it
    becoming your food and dish, nor do I find that aesthetically pleasing
    in the slightest.

    The stairway was not designed by NASCAR and is not a racetrack.
    Beating me to the bottom is not the object. Tripping me doesn't help,
    because I fall faster than you can run.

    I cannot buy anything bigger than a king size bed. I am very sorry
    about this. Do not think I will continue to sleep on the couch to
    ensure your comfort. Look at videos of dogs sleeping, they can
    actually curl up in a ball. It is not necessary to sleep perpendicular
    to each other stretched out to the fullest extent possible. I also
    know that sticking tails straight out and having tongues hanging out
    the other end to maximize space used is nothing but doggy sarcasm.

    My compact discs are not miniature Frisbees.

    For the last time, there is not a secret exit from the bathroom. If by
    some miracle I beat you there and manage to get the door shut, it is
    not necessary to claw, whine, try to turn the knob, or get your paw
    under the edge and try to pull the door open. I must exit through the
    same door I entered. In addition, I have been using bathrooms for
    years, canine attendance is not mandatory.

    The proper order is kiss me, then go smell the other dogs butt. I
    cannot stress this enough. It would be such a simple change for you.

    Sincerely,
    Your Overwhelmed Owner
