Age by Chocolate Math

This has made its way around the web a couple of times, but when we received it again a couple of days ago, we realized how fun and interesting it really is!  So make your way down the computations and prepare to be amazed.  Well, at least prepare to wonder how in the heck did they figure this out!

 

Don’t tell me your age; you’d probably lie anyway–but the chocolate man will know!

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 1762 ..

If you haven’t, add 1761..

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 (2012) IT WILL EVER WORK, SO SPREAD IT AROUND WHILE IT LASTS.
