Trippy: Your Age By Restaurant Math

  1. Someone just e-mailed me this here at work:
    Thought I'd pass it along...This is pretty neat.

    DON'T CHEAT BY SCROLLING DOWN
    FAST!

    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!!!!!)
     
  2. Bloody hell! LOL. IT IS!

  9. I've seen this before but it's how many times a week you want to have sex - ask it out loud to a person but have them keep that number a secret - then at the end you can 'guess' how many times they wanted it - lol

  13. wow!!! i got 330!!!!!
     
  14. 332 right on the money -- wow, cool!!!
     
  15. It's not that amazing...

    Number of times you want to eat out: No matter what number you pick, since you'll multiply by 2 it's gonna end up even.

    Take that number and add 5: Whenever you add odd and even, you'll always get an odd number.

    Multiply by 50: Since you'll always end up with odd in this scenario, the resulting number will always end in 50 (1*50 = 50, 3*50 = 150, etc etc)

    Add that to 1756 if your bday has occurred or 1756 if not: Self explanitory. So now, no matter what, you end up with a number ending in 06 if you bday hasn't occurred, or 07 if it has. So that explains how it will always know your age.

    The number you originally picked is just as easy since they've already given you a constant number (decided by them) to add to. So when you subtract your birth year, you'll get the number you started with.
