This works....It's weird.

~I got this as a forward, and it's weird how it works. Don't read ahead, and let me know if it works for you too!


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!

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

5. If you have already had your birthday this year add 1757 ... If you
haven't, add 1756

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!!!!!) THIS IS THE ONLY YEAR (2007) IT WILL
EVER WORK.

If you look really closely, you'll see why it always works. It's really pretty simple.

But, uh... I don't want to be a party pooper and ruin everyone else's fun or anything. Didn't you always hate the smarty-pants kid who did that in school?

So, as I was saying...

Hey, neat! It works!
