Think of a Number

I can read your mind over the web. What I want you to do is to think of a number, any number that you think looks sexy, like 1,459 for example – no, don’t tell me what it is. Okay, hold that thought, picture that number in your mind’s eye while we both concentrate.

Ready? I am. Now here’s what I want you to do, but you may need a pad and paper or better still a calculator for this. I’ll hang on while you get them.

Good, you’re back. here’s what to do:

>> Multiply the number you thought of by two.

>> Now add five.

>> Now multiply it by 50.

>> If you have had your birthday this year, add 1,753; if not, add 1,752.

>> Finally, subtract the four digit number of the year you were born (eg 1981)

Now look at the result. The number you thought of will appear as you read from left to right. All right, so there are some numbers left over, but no one’s perfect. Hey, I know what to do with them…..

That’s your age!
