This is cool -- we've all seen similar things where you pick a number and after various math operations get the number again, but in this you never actually "tell it" or enter your age, so God knows how it's deriving the variable. Leoslocks gets the Central Lounge Science Prize, or at least the Forward To Wife and Friends Prize, of the day!
What this does is multiply by 100 the number you choose and add your age, let's see how it does it.
If x is the number of chocolates you'd want to eat in a week.
Multiply x by 2
multiply by 50
add 1755 or 1754 according
100x+250+1755 = 100x + 2005 (that's why it will only work this year, if you want it to work next year add 1756 or 1755 accordingly).
Substract your year of birth
100x + 2005 - 1980 = 100x + 25
25 is my age, and assuming I want 3 chocolates then
300+25 = 325.
It won't work for people over 100 years
