Here’s a useless but fascinating fact for you to play with. If you add your year of birth to your age this year it comes to 2019 – happens every thousand years.
Here are some examples, but give it a go yourself:
born 1951, age this year 68 – – – – 1951 + 68 = 2019
born 1978, age this year 41 – – – – 1978 + 41 = 2019
born 1996, age this year 23 – – – – 1996 + 23 = 2019
Now that you’ve had a play, I’ll confess. This little bit of trivia is circling the globe at the moment. I found out about it because someone sent it to me. At first I thought, wow, cool. But then it dawned on me. Duh! Of course this works, that’s how we calculate our age…the year we are in minus the year we were born equals the number of years we’ve been alive (our age). And it will happen EVERY year.
The moral of this story is don’t take everything you read at face value!
