I loathe math, completely, utterly LOATHE it. But this is just tooo strange. Even more strange than the Lint Brush episode.
It really worked. Get out a calculator...
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!
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 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 your original number of how many times you want to go out to a restaurant in a week.
The next two numbers are:
YOUR AGE! (Oh YES, it is!!!!!)
THIS IS THE ONLY YEAR (2006) IT WILL EVER WORK, SO SPREAD IT AROUND WHILE IT LASTS, and if you feel like putting it on your blog, go ahead and tell 'em Manic Mom taught you this neat little mathematical craze!
(Leave me a comment to let me know if it worked or not!)
