Chocolate calculator!!
« on: May 07, 2009, 07:35:58 AM »
Don't tell me your age; you probably would tell a falsehood anyway
-but the Hershey Man will know! YOUR AGE BY CHOCOLATE MATHS.


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 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 to have chocolate each week).


The next two numbers are

YOUR AGE! (Oh YES, it is!!!!!).... :blowout:

THIS IS THE ONLY YEAR (2009) IT WILL EVER WORK.

Something is wrong with the chocolate calculator.  There's no way I could be that old!  Seems like it was last year I was old enough to vote.

Good.  That is two of us who can confirm there is a problem with it.  Let's see if others have similar results.

I'll try with some ficticious numbers here.

Assumptions:  Like chocolate 3 times a week.  Born 1 October 1952, meaning 56 years old.


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)

>>> 3


2. Multiply this number by 2 (just to be bold)

>>> 6



3. Add 5

>>> 11



4. Multiply it by 50 -- I'll wait while you get the calculator

>>> 550



5. If you have already had your birthday this year add 1759 ..
If you haven't, add 1758.

>>> Haven't yet (add 1758) - 2308



6. Now subtract the four digit year that you were born.

You should have a three digit number


>>> 356

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!


>>> 3 is the number of times per week, and 56 is the age.

Needless to say there is a separate version of the Chocolate Calculator for anyone under the age of 30.  :lol:
