    Check for Alzheimer's - Pretty Amazing

    The following was developed as a mental age assessment by the School of
    Psychiatry at Harvard University . Take your time and see if you can read
    each line aloud without a mistake.

    The average person over 50 years of age cannot do it!

    1. This is this cat.
    2. This is is cat.
    3. This is how cat.
    4. This is to cat.
    5. This is keep cat.
    6. This is an cat.
    7. This is old cat.
    8. This is fart cat.
    9. This is busy cat.
    10. This is for cat.
    11. This is forty cat..
    12. This is seconds cat.

    Now go back and read the third word in each line from the top down and I
    bet you cannot resist passing it on. :Rofl1::Rofl1::thumb:

    Roght, squire, can you write, in correct English, a single sentence with the word "And" used five times indirect succession - and making perfect sense?

    Sorry to question typing/spelling/gramme but
    indirect is not the same as in direct, in fact it is opposite, which do you actually mean?

    but to try what I think you mean:- "and, and, and, and, and", he stuttered.

    Poor typing by me, sorry, you're correct about the missing gap. Nice try, but although on the right track, not quite there.

    Let's let the others have a crack at it.

    The landlord of a pub called The Pig And Whistle asked a signwriter to make a new sign. When he saw it he thought that the words were too close together so he said to the signwriter “I want more space between Pig and And and And and Whistle”.:Rofl1:

    Plenty of examples as long as you use exclamation marks to seperate the "ands" in a sentence as in :


    He used the word "and" and "and" and "and" over and over again in his sentence

    The gold medal to "Nearly retired" - he's pretty well spot on, though at my grandfather's knee it was "The Crown and Anchor".

    Happy daze...
