Your Age in Chocolate.....

DON'T CHEAT BY SCROLLING DOWN FIRST!
It won’t take long....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 have chocolate
(more than once but-less than 10(sorry cupcake)

2. Multiply this number by 2 (that's better)

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 said you wanted to have chocolate each week).

The next two numbers are........... Ta-Daaaaa

Your Age! (Oh YES, it is!!!!!)

IT WORKS - but how will some mathematical genius explain please - although it also works for the number of times you think about sex also

Sex, chocolate, same thing.

Yeah, hehe, similar. It is largely to do with how much chocolate people eat ;)

Don't tell CC that!!!!!!! (So that's how she got to be Moderator.... KIDDING!!!!!)

I wonder if it works the same if you substitute beer for the chocolate... I'm sure Jase and James will know...

Ohhh....you so made up for that comment up there And since we feel the same way about chocolate/sex...I will let it slide. But seriously...who the hell only eats chocolate 10 times a week???

No one in their right mind!!! Ten times a day isn't even sufficient!!! It's a skewed algorithm!!! (More like a random number generator with chocolate stains.)
