Chocolate Reveals Your Age



This is  an email circulation and I had to share it with you.So take a pad and a pen and invite your friends to join in the fun.


YOUR AGE BY CHOCOLATE MATH


Don't tell me your age; you'd probably lie anyway-but the Hershey Man will know!



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!!!!!

  1. It does work....i tried it with two different numbers and it worked both times. Hmm. I'm too lazy to really go into the math and try and figure it out, lol, but I had fun!

  2. LOL! I like chocolate but don't crave it often, I gave a guesstimate and it worked!!! CRAZYNESS! (I don't wanna know the simple math, I love the magic!)

  5. I used to LOVE chocolate but now I can take it or leave it. Still, your maths worked for me (even though I rarely eat it.

    And no - there isn't something wrong with me (which is what most people say when I tell them I rarely eat chocolate). :0)

    Cheers

  6. I love chocolate...but I never eat it anymore because of the acid reflux. I would eat it everyday if I could.

    What a fun post!!
