    YOUR AGE BY CHOCOLATE MATH

    DON'T CHEAT BY SCROLLING DOWN FIRST!



    It takes less than a minute (for most people)....... Work this out as you

    read..



    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. (for Sunday)





    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.

            Leon,

            When did you need an excuse to eat chocolate? If I waited for an excuse, everything would be an excuse!
