I received an interesting email from an a schoolmate back in college. It is pretty interesting. I cannot figure out how it works. But the hubby just might know its algorithm and how it is able to work as it does. Just do the test as asked and you will know your exact age at the end of it. No peeking!
YOUR AGE BY DINER & RESTAURANT 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
go out to eat. (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 (get the calculator out)
5. If you have already had your birthday this year add 1759...
Orif 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 go out to restaurants in a week.)
The next two numbers are
YOUR AGE ! ------ (Oh YES, it is!)
Now how does this work!
THIS IS THE ONLY YEAR (2009) IT WILL EVER WORK,
SO SPREAD IT AROUND WHILE IT LASTS
