    YOUR AGE BY BEER 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 beer
    (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 1755 ....
    If you haven't, add 1754.

    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 beer each week).

    The next two numbers are
    YOUR AGE! (Oh YES, it is!!!!!)
    THIS IS THE ONLY YEAR (2005) IT WILL EVER WORK, SO SPREAD IT AROUND WHILE IT LASTS.

    These problems are less impressive for those who know basic algebra:

    x = beers per week (1-9)
    y = your year of birth

    (2x + 5)50 + 1755 - y
    100x + 2005 - y

    Not only is it trivial, but it will work in years other than 2005 simply by changing the 1755 to a different number.

    Off my age by one year and off the number of beers by 2.

    Oh right, the year thing.

    Considering that he has posted (once) since the vacation note was put up it looks like a fake. Or he is trying to insult me from beyond the grave.

    But the post was from midnight EST, which could open a few possibilities!

    Cool. According to this, I'm 05 years old. Of course I probably messed up the math somewhere

    If you're really 5 years of age the mathematics is quite tricky.
