Chocolate Math

My friend Cheryl sent me this. I’m not too big of a fan of chocolate (yes, I know – *gasp*) but it does work.

YOUR AGE BY CHOCOLATE MATH

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 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 also got this at work. It’s called “The Bird Flu Hits Florida”. 😀
