    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 40
    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

    Paulus Started young, and still going.

    Nurse, bring me the bath chair quick. I am never going to see 40 again, I need help. I did however get the question right first time, so maybe there is hope for a nearly 50 year old:ohmy:
