Fun Day Monday: Your Age By Chocolate Math

by World Wide Ed on Monday, June 8, 2009

Since we’ve got a lot of chocolate lavahz up in hurr, here’s one I got via email that you may enjoy.

Chocolate Calculator:

This is pretty neat. Don’t say your age; you will probably lie anyway!

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!

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 1759.  If you haven’t, add 1758.

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!!!!!)

THIS IS THE ONLY YEAR (2009) IT WILL EVER WORK, SO SPREAD IT AROUND WHILE IT LASTS!

Talk to me!
* Did it work?
* Did this make you feel old? 8)
* Are you one of dem chocolate lavahz?
* How was your weekend?
* How’s your week lookin’ so far?
* Hope this put a smile on your face to start the week! 🙂
