It's Sunday...Ahh...Siesta Time

Here is a math trick so unbelievable that it will stump you.
Personally I would like to know who came up with this and why that person is not running the country.

1. Grab a calculator. (You won't be able to do this one
in your head)

2. Key in the first three digits of your phone number
(NOT the area code)

3. Multiply by 80.

4. Add 1

5. Multiply by 250

6. Add the last 4 digits of your phone number.

7. Add the last 4 digits of your phone number again.

8. Subtract 250

9. Divide by 2

Do you recognize the answer?


If any of you have jokes you would like to add or share feel free to post them in the comments section as it appears there is always a little sparring going on there as to who can out funny the other. Let's just see who the funniest visitor is!!!

Okay, here I go, being a killjoy (all those years of university have to be bad for something):

Your phone #: aaa-bbbb

After step 4 you have:
(80 x aaa) + 1

Multiply by 250 to get:
(20,000 x aaa) + 250

After Step 7 you have:
(20,000 x aaa) + 250 + (2 x bbbb)

Subtract 250 to get:
(20,000 x aaa) + (2 x bbbb)

Divide by 2 to get:
(10,000 x aaa) + bbbb
- or -
aaa0000 + bbbb
- which is -
aaabbbb

(At this point you should feel free to stick your tongue out at me and call me a smart ass. I can't help it. I'm one of those weird people who like figuring stuff like this out...)

Have a great one Jacqui!

Yes, I'll stick my tongue out. All through school I failed math and thought man I just don't get it I guess. Turns out I had dyslexia and in math terms dis calculous (writing correct answers in the wrong order). No one ever caught on until it was too late!

Take your age....

multiply times 1280
then devide by the square root of your age and multiply times the year of your birth squared. Then multiply by the current year, 2006.

then divide by 21.


what do you get?


Who cares..... If your old enough to get an answer of 50 or more you are probably thinking about sex anyway.


Later Yall....

It's funny. My calculator must be broken. I keep getting the same freakin' answer for both problems! It's amazing: 69.69! Shhhh. Don't tell Dr. Andrew about this. He's such a killjoy and always telling men to do housework! What about all that feckin yard work I did yesterday? Huh? Just because my wife worked all day doesn't mean she couldn't haul a few cubic yards of branches to the curb, hunh? Anyway, I'm not trading in this Soixante-Neuf brand calculator. Nope.

A simpler task. Key in your age. multiply by three. Divide by three. You will get your age.

Melon, Paulie

You are two wild and crazy guys. Dirty minds think alike.

Merapuman, I must thank you for your simple task. Having recently turned 50 I found that I could actually do this problem in my head. Yehaw. Thank you!!!
I'm not dumb, I'm not dumb, I'm not dumb.
