The Guitar Gods know


Recommended Posts

Just a little mind boggler just for fun.


Don't tell me your age; you probably would tell a falsehood anyway - but the Guitar Gods will know!




It takes less than a minute.

Work this out as you read.

Be sure you don't read the bottom until you've worked it out!

This is not one of those wastes of time things, but its fun.


1. First of all, pick the number of times a week that you would like to play your guitar (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 1759.

If you haven't, add 1758.


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 play your guitar each week).


The next two numbers are


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


Does it work for you? If not, you probably need to take some remedial math. :)

516! Pretty nice. I'm on the school's math team' date=' we're 3rd in the Nation. I'll be competing in Number Theory next year, so I'll have an explanation for this next year :P[/quote']

Yea, I'm a math dork too. Heehehe. Four years of undergrad math major, two years grad engineering. Number Theory was my favorite. But this won't work next year. You figure out why.
