Just got this in an e-mail:

1. Key in the first three digits of your phone number (NOT the Area code)
2. Multiply by 80
3. Add 1
4. Multiply by 250
5. Add the last 4 digits of your phone number
6. Add the last 4 digits of your phone number again.
7. Subtract 250
8. Divide number by 2

Does this number look familiar?

Thanks NosiS


Another cool one that only works for 2008! If anyone figures out how it works, do share !


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. (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 (2008) IT WILL EVER WORK, SO SPREAD IT AROUND WHILE IT LASTS.
