Default Your Age (by Chocolate)

Got this by e-mail......what a hoot and it does work!




Have some paper and a pencil to do the math - If you do you math right it works.

This actually works! At least it worked for me…. How do people come up with this stuff?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Don't tell me your age; you probably would tell a falsehood anyway-but the Hershey 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 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!!!!!)
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
THIS IS THE ONLY YEAR (2006) IT WILL EVER WORK, SO SPREAD IT AROUND WHILE IT LASTS.


(I'm checking this last one out, to be sure.)

I've gotten those in e-mails as well, and they always say...

at the end. However, they send the same e-mail out the following year with the addition number in Step 5 having been increased by one number.

Heh, that is very cool, and it was correct. But I know how it works. Rather, I don't have number sequence worked out but there is a certain sequence that no matter what number you pick, you will fall into this sequence. So I know how this works, but I can't explain it. It's like a good car trick, and even when you know how it works, it's still cool to see work.
