Have Fun With Numbers - Telephone Trick

[You may need to use a calculator - you might not be able to do this one in your head…]

This only works if you have a 7-digit phone number.

1. Key in the first three digits of your 7-digit phone number (NOT the area code);
2. Multiply by 80;
3. Add 1;
4. Multiply by 250;
5. Add the last 4 digits of your phone number;
6. Add the last 4 digits of your phone number again;
7. Subtract 250;
8. Divide number by 2.

What you should have now is your actual phone number.

What's she selling?

A couple lived near the ocean and used to walk along the beach a lot. One summer they noticed a young girl was at the beach nearly every day. She wasn't unusual, nor was the travel bag she carried, except for one thing; she would approach people who were sitting on the beach, glance around furtively, then speak to them. Generally the people would respond negatively and she would wander off, but occasionally someone would nod and there would be a quick exchange of money and something she carried in her bag. The couple assumed she was selling drugs, and debated calling the police, but since they didn't know for sure they just continued to watch her.

After a couple of weeks the wife said, "Darling, have you ever noticed that she only goes up to people with boom boxes?" He hadn't, and said so. Then she said, "Tomorrow I want you to get a towel and our big radio and go and lie out on the beach. Then we can find out what she's really doing."

Well, the plan went off without a hitch and the wife was almost hopping up and down with anticipation when she saw the girl talk to her husband and then leave. He walked back up the beach and met his wife at the road.

"Well, Is she selling drugs?" she asked excitedly.

"No, she's not," he replied, enjoying this probably more than he should have.

"Well, What is it, then? What does she do?" his wife fairly shrieked.

The man grinned and said, "She's a battery salesperson."

"Batteries?" responded the wife.

"Yes," he replied. "She sells C cells by the sea shore...."
