Cool Calculator Trick

I've tried this five times in a row, and it worked each time. It's amazing. Follow the instructions below precisely.

Start with your age

  • add your home phone number (no area code)

  • subtract the age you were when you realized that cats aren't the girl and dogs the boy of some generic "pet" animal

  • multiply by the number of the day of the month you were born on

  • write the word "infinity" on your hand

  • divide by any whole number between 5 and 7

  • Turn the calculator upside down

  • multiply by zero

  • add your favorite number

  • press the equals (=) button and turn the calculator right side up

The end result should be your favorite number. Whoah!

(this trick works on most all brand name calculators)

I used my graphing calculator and when I graph it, I get a picture of Elvis.

I guess I just realized that cats and dogs each have both genders. Shoot. Life will never be the same.

does it work with solar powered calculators?

Chad Hatfield said...

I don't use solar powered anything. What if you left the calculator on outside somewhere? You could drain all the energy out of the sun. You think suns just grow on trees? They don't (they'd burn the trees to the ground).

Please, be environmentally minded, and bury all of your solar powered calculators deep in your backyard.

I misread your blog and wrote the word "infidelity" on my hand. I used a permanent marker and now I fear Dad will have questions for me when I return tomorrow after being gone for 5 1/2 weeks!
