not exactly a homestead question, but fascinating math problem

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Countryside : One Thread

ok first of all, this is not exactly a homestead issue, but i found it to be quite interesting. i hope you enjoy it. it's called "sex math".

First of all, pick the number of times a week that you would like to have sex .........(try for more than once but less than 10)

Multiply this number by 2 (Just to be bold)

Multiply it by 50 (being a bit stupid)

I'll wait while you get the calculator................

If you haven't, add 1750 ..........

Now subtract the four digit year that you were born. (if you remember)

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 sex each week). The next two numbers are your age.

Impressive, isn't it?

This is the only year (2001) it will work, so spread it around while it lasts.)

....... ok now smile and laugh and go have a great day.......gene

doesnt work if you were born in the 1800's or 2000. Took this this weekend,, but the first question was,, "how many times a week to you crave chocolate?"

If you were born in the 1800's you're probably lucky if you can still have sex, or crave chocolate, for that matter. As for being born in 2000, neither of the two above should apply!

Who has the time to think up these things? :)

Here's a poem that works out mathematically:

A dozen, a gross, and a score, plus three times the square root of four, divided by seven, plus five times eleven, equals nine to the square and no more.
