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 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! 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 1758 If you haven't, add 1757. 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. How many times you want to go out to restaurants in a week. The next two numbers are: YOUR AGE ! ------ (Oh YES, it is!) Freaky huh. THIS IS THE ONLY YEAR (2008) IT WILL EVER WORK.

That was right on the money. I will have to send to my hubby, he always tries to figure these things out. Really neat, thanks for sharing. Mickey

It worked! I checked this out. The formula will work for everybody but the Chinese and Jack Benny. Rosie, I'm so glad to see you back. How are you doing? Still having beautiful sunny weather in dear old Scozia? Start a post and catch us up. I was wondering about you last week, but I decided not to post anything since there was no knowing if you'd get back in time to see it. Rock In case anydobby is wondering, the Chinese consider a baby a year old when it's born. (Or at least they used to.) As for Jack Benny, "star of stage, screen, tv and radio", he stopped aging at 39.

Even with a calculator, I messed up the first two times. But I finally got it right the third time. What a neat trick! Thanks for the entertainment, Rosie!
