Your Age in Chocolate!


It works, honestly, it really works!

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)

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 1760 ...If you haven't, add 1759.


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! This is the only year (2010) it will ever work, so tell your friends while it lasts!

Ummmm, mine doesn't work. :o/

have tried it with a calculator and read over and over just in case I'm bring thick - and it definitely doesn't work.

I think it's the multiply by 50 bit. That gives you such a large number that you don't end up with a 3 digit number at the end.

Or is it just me? :o(

Yeah.......I must have been having a bad night. Was just me! Just came back to it and it worked perfectly - duh!

God knows what the hell I was doing first time around?!

Nooooooooooo - it wasn't you, it was me! But the blimmin thing wouldn't let me on to comment! I'd put add '54' by mistake! You are quite definitely not thick or having a bad night :-)

Thank god - was seriously concerned about my sanity (and ability to do simple maths) for a second! ;o)

Chocolate is obviously magic, and it doesn't matter how old you are. Or if you lie about your chock habit.
