YOUR AGE BY CHOCOLATE MATH


It takes less than a minute to do this. Be sure you don't read the bottom until you've worked it out!


This is not one of those waste of time things - it's actually fun.



1. First of all, pick the number of times a week that you would like to have chocolate (more than once but less than 10)


2. Multiply this number by 2

3. Add 5

4. Multiply it by 50 --- I'll wait while you get the calculator.

5. If you have already had your birthday this year add 1756 .... If you haven't had it yet, add 1755.

6. Now subtract the four digit year that you were born.


You should have a three digit number ....


The first digit of this was your original number (i.e., how many times you want to have chocolate each week).

The next two numbers are YOUR AGE!!!

THIS IS THE ONLY YEAR (2006) THIS WILL WORK.

These drive me nuts because then I have to contort my brain into all these unnatural mathematical positions and it gives me a headache. I don't do numbers.

It was right of course.

Perhaps, but next year, add 1757/1756 instead and it will work again....
Very neat, but they try to hook you with the "this is the only year it will work" and hope that chocolate eaters don't do math... well HA! They didn't expect any chocolate haters to spend valuable time figuring it all out, but along I came...:o

lol all I was thinking was that it wouldn't work because "real" chocolate eaters have no idea how often they wanted chocolate last week.:D

I have to pick how many times I WANT chocolate a week, but the number has to be less than 10?!?!? I'm a true chocoholic, I WANT chocolate MUCH MORE than that.
