Here's a puzzle that will show whether you are suffering from alzheimer's.

If you can't complete this puzzle, you should see your physician about additional checking to see if you are indeed suffering this disease, because there are cures today that was not available just a few years ago.

Good luck, and let us know how you did.

@cicerone imposter,
That was kinda cool.

It actually was perfectly timed because I'm having a complete fried-brain day. (Didn't get much sleep last night, one-hour session at the mechanic's turned into two +, every electronic thing that can go wrong has been, and I just read something from my SIL on Facebook about how she has 3 "earth angels" [kids] and one "in Heaven" who would be 19 now and I'm wracking my brain trying to figure out if I knew this. Did I know this??? It would have been right around when I met her brother so maybe not. Maybe he didn't know. I'm just confused. I want a nap!!)

@cicerone imposter,
I certainly canĀ“t do it.
I love puzzles, but not this kind especially when the pattern moves all the time.
Also the pieces move away from where I put them.
Maybe there is something wrong with my eyes and not my brain

@farmerman,
I don't think it's based on any time limit. It's a can do or can't do proposition.

Did it fairly quickly. Does that mean I have Alzheimer's or I don't?

I was beginning to panic, but then it all fell into place.

Last night I had a dream that ci and the rest of us had completely misunderstood this puzzle.
It has nothing to do with alzheimer, but learning how to float in the air.
I did it.

All I know is that the first time it made that noise, it scared the crap out of me.

So, is the fact some of the pieces have movement in them supposed to make it harder?
I just ignored that.

@chai2,
I thought the movement made it easier.

Wait for something to drift into a blank blue piece.

@cicerone imposter,
Pretty good puzzle. Solved it quickly and the moving parachutist helped me a lot. Not sure how doing well on this puzzle determines Alzheimer's but it was fun. I still can't find my keys.

@Ragman,
We all misplace our keys some times; that's normal. However, if you don't remember what the keys are for, you've got a problem. Mr. Green

The classic test for Alzheimer's is to have the patient draw a clock face. It's the act of being able to place things where they should be. A person suffering from Alzheimer's can't do it.

@Ceili,
Never heard of that one before, but will try to remember that one, because it doesn't require a computer to "test."
