Check dis out

Here is an interesting thing I found while surfin da net…..try it out!

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 works.

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 1755 .... If you
haven't, add 1754.

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

Its a neat trick, but its easy to work out the math involved :P

The reason why the number you chose(number of chocolates a week)is in the hundreds place is because you times it by TWO and then by FIFTY.

So you have the number times HUNDRED. And since it's untouched throughout.. it appears again at the end.

Now for your age. In the beginning you plus FIVE, then you times FIFTY and then you add either 1755 or 1754

Now this gives you:
5 x 50 + 1755 = 2005 or
5 x 50 + 1754 = 2004

which is this year or last year, and once you minus your year of birth... it will of course give you your age :P

There's no such thing as magic!! :P
Or psychic internet tricks like this one -.-
