Mathematically correct movie selection guide
« on: November 13, 2019, 07:59:24 pm »

Try this mathematical film test.


It's pretty amazing. Mine turned out to be "Raiders of the Lost Ark". I was surprised how this worked.


This test will  predict which of the 18 films listed below is your favourite. Don't ask me how, but it really works!


Don't cheat and look at the film list till you have done the maths!


Here goes...




Pick a number from 1-9.


Multiply by 3.


Add 3.


Multiply by 3 again.


Now add the two digits together to find your predicted favourite film in the list of 18 films below.


Film List:


1. Gone With The Wind
2. E.T.
3. Beverly Hills Cop
4. Star Wars
5. Forrest Gump
6. The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly
7. Jaws
8. Grease
9. The Joy of Gay Anal Fisting
10. Casablanca
11. Jurassic Park
12. Shrek
13. Pirates of the Caribbean
14. Titanic
15. Raiders Of The Lost Ark
16. Home Alone
17. Mrs. Doubtfire
18. Toy Story


Let me know, so I know what DVD to get for Christmas.
Boys will be Boys.
And girls are darn thankful for that

ag fok jou man   :laughing4: :laughing4: :laughing4: :laughing4:
There's a race of men that don't fit in, A race that can't stay still;
So they break the hearts of kith and kin, And they roam the world at will.
They range the field and they rove the flood, And they climb the mountain's crest; Theirs is the curse of the gypsy blood, And they don't know how to rest.                                                   Robert Service

Weet nie hoe jy dit regkry om te kan bike ry as jy nie eens hierdie maklikke wiskunde kan doen nie  :deal:

It does that with any number.
