    YOUR AGE BY EATING OUT



    Don't tell me your age; you probably would tell a falsehood anyway-but your

    waiter may know!



    YOUR AGE BY DINER & RESTAURANT MATH



    This is pretty neat.



    DON'T CHEAT BY SCROLLING DOWN FIRST!

    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!

    This is not one of those waste of time things, it's fun.



    1.) 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)



    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 1757...

    If you haven't, add 1756.



    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 go out to restaurants in a week.)



    The next two numbers are



    YOUR AGE ! ------ (Oh YES, it is!!!)

    THIS IS THE ONLY YEAR (2007) IT WILL EVER WORK, SO SPREAD IT AROUND WHILE IT LASTS

    Ken, that is pretty cool. It worked even though I misread the original question and started with 10. My answer was 10xx.

    Cool stuff, although it'll work next year if you just change 1757 and 1756 to 1758 and 1757.
