Movie Preference Tester

Discussion in 'Jokes and Humour' started by RobE, Jun 20, 2010.

  1. Try this test.

    Do the arithmetic and this amazing test will show what movie is your favourite.

    Pick a number from 1-9.

    Multiply by 3.

    Add 3.

    Multiply by 3 again.

    Add the two digits together.

    Now use that number to find what was predicted as your favourite movie in the list of 18 films below.

    Mine was "Star Wars" - exactly right! So be honest, and do it before you scroll down to see the list below. It's easy and it works.

    Now look up your number in the list below...

    1. Gone With The Wind
    2. E.T.
    3. Beverly Hills Cop
    4. Star Wars
    5. Forrest Gump
    6. The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly
    7. Jaws
    8. Grease
    9. The Joy of Sex With A Goat
    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. Doubtfire
    18. Toy Story
  2. The Joy of Sex With a Goat :S
  3. 10. Casablanca.

    Could have been worse but it's not my favourite from that list.


    I guess I added up wrong...
  4. unless the list contains every movie made, how can this have any validity?

    my favourite movie is Bladerunner, and I don't need a mathematical test to tell me that :LOL:
  5. oooh shit, i got goat p0rn too
  6. that was rigged was'nt it
  7. All choices lead to 9.
  8. yep.

    RobE: you forgot to add that if you dont send to all of the contacts on your email list within the next 60 minutes, the sky will turn upside down and then the world will exfoliate.
  9. Errr...... same here, what is it about this goat....lol
  10. Mine was Mrs Doubtfire, but I've never really been good at math.
  11. Any list without fight club is fundamentally flawed.
  12. Blasphemy I say!
    Not one motorcycle movie on a MC forum......

  13. It has goat p0rn though so Tyler would approve.
  14. Somewhat interesting mathematically though, if you keep adding up the digits when you have more than a 1 digit result, it doesn't matter what number you pick, from 0 upwards, you'll still get 9.

    Example: Pick 76451

    ((76451 * 3) + 3) * 3 = 688068

    Okay, so add all the individual digits together

    6 + 8 + 8 + 0 + 6 + 8 = 36

    Still not a single digit yet, so add 3 and 6 together:

    3 + 6 = 9

    Try it, you can pick any number from 0 up, and if you keep adding/condensing, you will always get 9.
  15. Flux is correct. More succinctly, it is a universal fact that in base 10 any positive multiple of 9 will have digits that add to 9, or digits of sums of digits that add to 9.

    What the process in the OP does is takes your number and turns it into a multiple of 9. Essentially, lets say you take the number "x". The number you will end up with is 9 times (x+1), so if you chose 4 as your number you would end up with 45 which is 9*5.

    Really, all it does is take the number you chose and multiplies it by nine, it just through in the plus three in the middle to disguise it a bit.
  16. Heh, pick a number x from [1..9], and your instructions result in:

    3(3x + 3) = 9x + 9
    or 9(x + 1)

    So what you're doing is exploiting a feature of the multiples of 9. Each 9 added after x=1 increments the tens digit and decrements the ones digit: 18 - 27 - 36 - 45 etc. which keeps the sum of the digits at 9. The math is more interesting than the goatsex joke.

    [Edit: Ah, I now see that someone beat me to it... the analysis was fun for my own edification though.]
  17. Given that list The Joy of Sex With a Goat probably is the best movie. Jaws I might be able to forgive. the rest are great examples of over-rated, commercialised bollucks.
  18. The test doesn't work.
    The Joy of Sex With A Goat was a pretty good movie but not as good as Beverely Hills Cop.
