Don't tell me your age; you probably wouldn't share 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! 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 (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 (2006) IT WILL EVER WORK, SO SPREAD IT AROUND WHILE IT LASTS! Share your comments on this 'age by restaraunt math'. Did it work for you? It did me! Do you understand how this works? I don't! I still thought it was cool though and wanted to share.

After 750 you must add with 1756, then you must subtract with 1985 (the year you was born). The result is 521. 5 the number that you picked, and your age is 21. It worked...

I thought it was very intriguing and fun and I'm glad others agree! I'm waiting for some mathematic genius to figure out how it works ; ) Thanks for 'adding' to the discussion : )
