How they worked this one out is beyond me ! ! !


YOUR AGE BY CHOCOLATE MATH

This is pretty neat.

DON'T CHEAT BY SCROLLING DOWN FIRST!
It takes less than a minute .
Work this out as you read ...
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 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 (just to be bold)


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, 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! (Oh YES, it is!)

I won't tell you what number I came up with (after all I am a lady), but boy does it work. You may be able to fool others about your age, but you can't fool math. Bummer. LOL


It works no matter what number you pick

Its based on the subtraction on your birth year.
