Finally! A math trick for people who will follow directions!

Try this... it works!! Don't cheat by scrolling down or it *won't* work!

STEP ONE:

Pick a number between 1 and 100.

Multiply it by 5.

Add your age minus the number in pets in your household. Divide the number by 10 rounding to the nearest decimal. Write down the number on one side of a piece of paper.

STEP TWO:

Pick another different number between 1 and 100. Multiply by 1998.

Add the number in your family and subtract your age. Divide the number by 10 rounding to the nearest decimal. Write down the number on the other side of the piece of paper.

STEP THREE:

Take the first 2 digits of your home phone number and add them to the last 2 digits of your work number and multiply by 365. Write the number on a new sheet of paper.

STEP FOUR:

Fold the first page in half.
Now fold the second page.

Place them side by side.

Now pick up the two sheets - sheet one in your left hand and sheet two in your right hand.

NOW....

Find a bin/drawer and place the sheets in it....

Scroll down...

Scroll down...

Slap yourself around the head while repeating:

"I'm a stupid person who wastes too much time on junk like this."
