got this in an e-mail: Don't tell your age; you probably would tell a falsehood 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 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 have chocolate each 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.

It works like this: [(number x 2) + 5] x 50 + 1756 ( or 1755 if birth not yet this year) - your birth year = number x 100 + 250 + 1756 ( or 1755 if birth not yet this year) - your birth year = number x 100 + 2006 ( or 2005 if birth not yet this year) - your birth year = which will always be 100 x nubmer + 2006 - your birth year = example; number = 1, birth year = 1962, month = Feb (past): 1 x 100 + 2006 - 1962 = 144 or 143 if birthday is after June 23, 2006 (today).
