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 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!

A friend wrote and said it will work any year, just alter a few X's.
By changing a few constanants in the equation, I figure I can have Margaritas and Chocolate 7 days a week and I'm 18 yrs old.

I like the new Math!

Almost magical !!! But normally magic is a trick, perhaps almost superhuman strength, or a little extra perception and application of science. :o)

From a mathmatical perspective here is how the formula breaks down.

((2X+5)*50)+ZZZZ-BIRTH=XYY, where:
X = # of times chocolate per week (1 to 10)
ZZZZ = 1756 if you have had a birthday this year or
ZZZZ = 1755 if you have not had one
BIRTH = Year of your birth
YY = AGE

(2X)*50 + (5*50) + ZZZZ - BIRTH = 100X + AGE

100X + 250 +ZZZZ - BIRTH = 100X + AGE

For those of us that have had our Birthday this year ZZZZ=1756

100X + 2006 - BIRTH = 100X + AGE

Subtracting 100X from both sides of the equation, you basically are left with the fact that:

AGE of someone that has had a Birthday this year is equal to 2006 - Their Year of Their Birth...




See just simple math right???? :o)



BTW, it took a few minutes scratching the old noggin and the new larger size 3 pack of Reece's Peanut Butter Cups to get through it.

Does that count as 3 or just as 1 ???

First, I am amazed that it actually worked. Secondly, I am amazed you figured this out Rob.
keep showing us how smart you are I may have to propose. LOl

Dude, You're hired ....Can you figure how many half gallons of Tequila we need for 12 Margaritas per day per band member at Spring Break in Lake Havasu city?


While the salt on the rim of margarita glasses would help with dehydration in the sun, the acidity of the lime mix will eat your stomachs up! I would recommend gallons of GatorAde in various flavors. The advanced science would keep you safer from the sun, and on ice keep bottles of anejo tequila for shots. If money is no object, Patron is great, for budget minded, Jose's new black label is quite tasty!!!

((((a+b)*x)*y)*z)+ ((c+d)*z) where:
a = shots per hour (tolerance average of band members, with calculated risk of buzz vs. playability of instruments)
b = big cups of gatorade
x = number of band members
y = hours played per day
z = number of days in springbreak
In the evenings to prevent hangover next day:
b = 3 to 5 asprin
c = quart of water/gatorade

ROFLMAO
