Just a little bit of fun - but quite clever. One for the mathematical boffins!

This was originally "Your age by Chocolate" but works equally as well for whisk(e)y.

YOUR AGE BY WHISK(E)Y MATH

DON'T CHEAT BY SCROLLING DOWN FIRST!

It takes less than a minute.

Work this out as you read

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 Whisk(e)y (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 whisk(e)y each week).

The next two numbers are

YOUR AGE! (Oh YES, it is!!!!!)

Evidently this is the only year (2005) it will work.
