I'm not sure how, but this works...

.....but your waiter may know! How?

1. First of all, pick the number of times a week that you would like to
go out to eat (more than zero but less than 10).
2. Multiply this number by 2 (just to be bold)
4. Multiply it by 50
but if you haven't, add 1756.
6. Now subtract the four digit year that you were born.

You should now have a three digit number-
The first digit of this was your original number
(I.e., how many times you would like to go out to eat each week.)
The next two numbers are Your Age! (Oh Yes, it is!!!!! )
Chaos reigns within.

OK, let's see....
Let x = number of times to eat out.

Multiply by 2: 2x

Multiply by 50: 50(2x+50)

(for not yet having b'day)

Subtract birth year (example 1985)

50(2x+50) + 1756 - 1985

Simplify
100X + 250 + 1756 - 1985,
100X + 2006 - 1985,

100X + (current year - birth year)

100X will put your dine out preference as the 100's digit.
(Current year - birth year) gives you your age.

Wow TMack, that's kinda creepy! But in a fun way, like Blair Witch if it had an actual plot.

Nope, no McHappy Meal for this gal!

Glad you all enjoyed this little joke.
Thanx to ddeerrff, our math extraordinaire for simplifying algebra for us!
