For all you mathematicians and movie lovers…

For as long as I can remember, I have loved math tricks. This one is very easy and it really works! It will take you only about ten seconds and, amazingly, it will reveal your all-time favorite movie.

I'm pretty good at math, so I did it in my head, then on paper, and finally
on a calculator just to confirm my mathematical calculations. Each time, I
got the same answer, and sure enough, it IS my very favorite movie...EVER!

DO NOT cheat. DO YOUR math, THEN compare the results on the list of movies at the bottom. You will be AMAZED at how true and accurate this test is:



1. Pick a number from 1-9.
2. Multiply that number by 3.
3. Add 3.
4. Multiply by 3 again.
5. Your total will be a two digit number. Add the first and second digits together to find your favorite movie (of all time) in the list of 17 movies below:



Movie List:
1. Gone With the Wind
2. E.T.
3. Blazing Saddles
4. Star Wars
5. Forrest Gump
6. The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
7. Jaws
8. Grease
9. The Nancy Pelosi Resignation Speech
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. Doubt fire



.. Now, isn't that something?

@ Grandad - Definitely. I think the point of the joke (as written by a Republican) was to no matter what get rid of Nancy Pelosi who is Speaker of the House.

As an aside and I don't know how much US political content you get on your TV (here we get LOTS). Nancy is in real jeopardy of losing control of the Democrats given the high number of elected FAR FAR FAR FAR FAR totally RIGHT WING so strongly LIBERAL they all SHINE at midnight Politicians in that Party i.e. did you know the Democrats just all voted that late term abortion is OK and LEGAL? Late term as in the Mom can now decide at BIRTH if the child lives or dies AND they've had Doctors describe how they cut the neck cords of babies born essentially full term (like 1 day shy of 9 months) and the Mom decides she now wants to abort? The Democrats are now pushing heavily towards Socialism = we give up ALL vehicles, ALL housing is upgraded to their green standards, wealth is all re-distributed, no profits for companies, late term abortion and on and on.........It is absolutely mind boggling how crazy and totally economically unfeasible some of these discussion points are that are coming up but by and large they are HUGELY SCARY as H*LL should the Democrats get in! Half the time I can hardly believe what I'm hearing when their speeches come on TV.

Have a listen to 29 yr old former bartender Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who was able to get elected to Congress. She is quite pretty and outspoken and the Media loves her so all her crazy ideas are being strongly touted (Media-wise which is lending strong creedence to whatever she spouts). She is gaining traction with others in the Democrats particularly the younger ones who are lining up again behind Bernie Sanders who is making a run for President in 2020. Since so many are now starting to jump on her Band wagon (which gives them a Media presence) Nancy Pelosi is losing control as her own Party is now not particularly listening to her.

Yes I got that LLL but I am always interested in the maths behind this sort of trick question.
We do get a lot of reporting of US politics and have several BBC reporters permanently in the USA. Most reporting comes on BBC's Newsnight at 10.30 pm which is a political/current affairs daily program. There are a lot of current reports from the US on that program and I am very familiar with Nancy Pelosi. ;)

@Grandad - Personally I can't stand to even listen to Nancy speak. She talks like we're all idiots. Mostly I can shrug off most any politician but she is one of a few who just rubs me the wrong way from the time she starts to speak.

Wasn't aware if you got any US news or not. We got LOTS of it here however we get zip from the UK. I'm aware of the word BREXIT but no idea if it is going ahead, stalled or lagging behind. Almost like it doesn't exist here.
