1. First of all, pick the number number of times a week that you would like to have chocolate more than once and less than 10.

2. Multiply the number by 2 (just to be bold).

3. Add 5.

4. Multiply this by 50 (yes, use the calculator!!).

5. If you have already had your birthday this year add 1756. If you haven't, add 1755.

6. Now subtract the four digit year that you were born.

You should have a three digit number. The first digit of this was the number of times you said you want to eat chocolate a week. The next two numbers are YOUR AGE!

And, just in case someone asks ... no it doesn't work if you're over 99!

And, hello Kat!! :whistling: :blink:

Wow, Monkey, guess that just makes you even more unique!

Or maybe you were pressing keys on your calculator/keyboard randomly? Was the answer you got the collected works of William Shakespeare?

Infinite monkey theorem
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The infinite monkey theorem states that a monkey hitting keys at random on a typewriter keyboard for an infinite time will almost surely eventually type the collected works of William Shakespeare. Note that almost surely is being used in a precise mathematical sense here.

And, hello Kat!! :) :woot:


how did you know I'd show up? :help: :whistling:

WOrked for me, monkey. I think you picked ZERO for the number of times you'd like to have chocolate. Shame on you! :woot: I had to settle for 9, since it was the highest choice you could pick. :blink:

*Kat waits for Pieter to show up now, too
