Your age by chocolate maths

Your age by chocolate maths
Work this out as you read. It’s not a trick, it really can tell your age, scout’s honour.

First of all, pick the number of times a week that you would like to have chocolate (more than once but less than 10).

Multiply this number by 2 (just to be bold).

Add 5.

Multiply it by 50 (I’ll wait while you get the calculator).

If you have already had your birthday this year add 1762, or if you haven’t, add 1761.

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!

2012 is the only year the chocolate calculator will work, so click ‘email this story’ to share with a friend before it’s too late.

Two female teachers took a group of students from grades one, two and three for a field trip to Flemington Racecourse. When it was time to take the children to the toilets, it was decided that the girls would go with one teacher and the boys would go with the other.

The teacher assigned to the boys was waiting outside the men’s toilet when one of the boys came out and told her that none of them could reach the urinal. Having no choice, she went inside, helped the little boys with their pants, and began hoisting them up one by one, holding on to their ‘wee-wees’ to direct the flow away from their clothes and shake them dry.

As she lifted one boy up, she couldn’t help but notice that he was unusually well endowed. Trying not to show that she was staring at his equipment the teacher said, ‘You must be in Grade 3?’

‘No ma’am’, he replied. ‘I’m riding Black Caviar in the next race, but I really appreciate your help’.
