YOUR AGE BY CHOCOLATE

1. First of all, pick the number of times a week (or a day) that you would like to have chocolate (more than once but less than 10)

2. Multiply this number by 2

3. Add 5

4. Multiply it by 50

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 the number of times you really want to eat chocolate (i.e. how many times you want to have chocolate each week).

The next two numbers are YOUR AGE!

THIS IS THE ONLY YEAR (2006) IT WILL EVER WORK, SO SPREAD IT AROUND WHILE IT LASTS.

I have always been a mathematical dunce so I don't know how this works...........I know it's the classic 'think of a number and double it' trick but I don't understand it. :confused:
