Feeling ill.

Anyway, I'm a sucker for these number things.


Pick the number of times per week you would like to have chocolate.

Add 31 to it.

Multiply by 32.

Subtract 12.

Double it.

If you've already had your birthday this year, add 42. Otherwise add 41.

Subtract the year you were born.

Convert the result to octal format.

The last two digits will be your age in octal format!!! The digits before that will be the number of times per week you want to have chocolate (also in octal format)!!!

This amazing magic trick will only work in the year 2002 (or 3722, in octal format), so be sure to pass it on to everyone you know before the
year runs out!!!

Actually, wouldn't it work from your birthday in 2001 to your birthday in 2003?

it didn't work for me... i don't think. i put in 0 and thus expected 14, yet get 16. you obviously need a new number system.
