Try this it's interesting: Think of how many times you'd like to have a beer in a week (pick a number from 1-10) now double it,add 5,Multiply by 50(use a calculator if you must) if you've already had your birthday this year add 1755 if not add 1754,subtract the year you were born(you should have a 3 digit number),the first digit is the number you first chose and the next 2 digits are your age. Am I right????ðŸ˜‰ðŸ˜‰ðŸ˜²ðŸ˜²

(2*x + 5)*50 = 100*x + 250

The 100*x gives you the first digit being the original number.

Now 250+1755 (assuming you've had a birthday this year, works the same if not) = 2005

And it's obvious that 2005-year you were born = age

This trick will impress people who are extremely drunk or stupid.

It is for me, I have no desire to get drunk and act like a retart, you probaly wouldnt either if you ever seen a video of yourself of when you was drunk

yeah, it works for 0, just leaves you with 2 digits, which is obviously your age, if you get 1 digit, then your probably not old enough to be thinking about beer!

I think if you read it properly it refers to how many times a week you would like to have "a" beer, not get drunk.There are responsible drinkers out there.Besides it wasn't meant to be a statement on the sins of imbibers it was a "cute" parlour trick.ðŸ™‚

Who wants to soberly watch a video of drunk people having fun?
