Exercise of the brain is as important as exercise of the muscles.

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. 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. 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 "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, "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, 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 !

Here is another.

You're inside a house. All walls are facing south. You look out of a window (to the south of course ) and see a bear. What color is it?

White! If all walls are facing south you are at the north pole ==> it's an icebear

All walls face south if it's specifically built on top of the north pole itself -- only the inside walls would face north.

Same as MagiK here. I knew the answers almost before I read the questions.

On top of the north pole itself. That's one tiny house.
