    Whoa.. I like this kind of Math!

    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 1755 ....
    If you haven't, add 1754.














    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 (2005) IT WILL EVER WORK, SO SPREAD IT AROUND WHILE IT LASTS.

    Wow, that's great! Speaking of chocolate....



    Don't these look divine? My family is a member of the chocolate tasting club! What a club! We get to buy special boxes of chocolates and rate them! We even have a handbook telling us how to taste chocolates! Click here for the website

    Woo Hoo i found a way it works next year also!!!

    to make it work further years do the same but just add 1 to the 1755/1754 number, so it works fine (i am just not sure for 366 day years)

    you know........i just realized days in a year are not involved, so i guess it just matters if you have or havent had a birthday, so my conclusion is just add a number.

    I've seen lots of things like that before and not just this year, so there must be something that would make it work in other years. I guess what husky_mom said but I don't feel like trying it
