Sweet Age Comes With Chocolate

Lady of Chocolate - Painting done with espresso and water.

Don't tell me your age; you probably would tell me a falsehood anyway!
-but the Hershey Man will know!

YOUR AGE BY CHOCOLATE MATH

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 # 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've 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 chocolate each week).

The next two numbers are:

YOUR AGE! (Oh YES, it is !!!!)

THIS IS THE ONLY YEAR (2009) IT WILL EVER WORK, SO SPREAD IT AROUND WHILE IT LASTS.

Challenging to a non-number lover, but clever!

there must be some full circle thing going on but I did not take the time to figure it out.
But its fun to play numbers and see how they manipulate us into believing things.
Stats do this all the time as do magicians.

Thanks for visiting and have a very pleasant day!:)
