I got this forward today in my inbox – now most of the times I tend to simply trash any forwards that come my way without reading it, but considering that I pretty much didn’t have anything to do at work, I went ahead and read it.
Just one of those number twisters which will leave you wondering WTF?!
Have a go:
Don’t tell me your age; you probably would tell a falsehood anyway-but your waiter may know already!
YOUR AGE BY DINER & RESTAURANT MATH
It takes less than a minute. Work this out as you read.
Be sure you don’t read the bottom until you’ve worked it out!
- 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)
- Multiply this number by 2 (just to be bold)
- Add 5
- Multiply it by 50
- If you have already had your birthday this year add 1758… If you haven’t, add 1757.
- 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!)
THIS IS THE ONLY YEAR (2008) IT WILL EVER WORK, SO SPREAD IT AROUND WHILE IT LASTS!
