    YOUR AGE BY CHOCOLATE MATH....cool!!

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

    YOUR AGE BY CHOCOLATE 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 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 1762 ..
    If you haven't, add 1761..


    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!!!!!)



    THIS IS THE ONLY YEAR (2012) IT WILL EVER WORK, SO SPREAD IT AROUND WHILE IT LASTS.

    My favorite part of this was the multiplying by TWO... much closer to the actual times I think about chocolate per day!! Thanks for the smile!!!

    My starting number was 0, since I don't like chocolate. (There a few of us out here) It still worked for me.

    I'm allergic to chocolate but the question was how many times a week you would like to have it.
    It told me my exact age.
    Amazing!
