Off Topic -- Your AGE calculated by Chocolate !!...

By OldER Mycroft ·
Received this in an email this afternoon, and it definitely deserves as wide an audience as possible!

Here goes: ...

This is pretty neat.

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 fewer 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 sojourn into the wondrous world of mathematics was brought to you by The Chocolate Calculator.

My answer was 754

It was 7 degrees C here this morning and I chose 7 giving me 753. I only found out the temp later.

I chose 2

because usually I dont think about it much -- except when some SOB brings it up when I am around
That averages 2 times a week

Well, there's a few Merinos around here if they'll help

by Deadly Ernest In reply to LOL

apart from that I can put a call in for a 'no knock warranty' at your home to the police and they'll pop along with a huge battering ram.

Nah don't do that

I'm sick of Jury Duty. I'm trying to keep a low profile. Mind you my eldest boy had Jury Duty last week. I'll take the merinos if they were hung with the tender hook, cooks up nice.
