A Great Math Trick . . . . WOW!

I love math tricks and this one will only take you about ten seconds. Amazingly, it really works and 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 numerical capabilities. Each time I got the same answer, and sure enough it IS my very favorite movie  

                DO NOT cheat. DO YOUR math, THEN compare the results to the list of movies at the bottom You will be AMAZED at how scary 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

                6. The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

Actually I would've preferred The Early Obama Impeachment Saga, but I'll take the completely unexpected #9.
