eek Coincidence?

Here is an email I got a few weeks before the world cup final:

Brazil last won the world cup in 1994.
Before that they won it in 1970.
Add 1970 and 1994, it equals 3964.

Germany last won in 1990.
Before that they won in 1974.
Add 1990 and 1974, it equals 3964.

Argentina last won the world cup in 1986.
Before that they won it in 1978.
Add 1978 and 1986, it equals 3964.

So going by this logic, The winner of the 2002 world
cup is the same as the 3964 - 2002 = 1962 world cup.
The 1962 world cup was won by Brazil.

And guess what? Brazil won!

This is similar to the thread I posted the other day http://discussions.fordforums.com/sh...ight=world+cup

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.

well whoever won in 1968 according to 3964-2006

since there was no cup that year
1968 (no cup)
england(7 letters)(1966) brazil(6 letters)(1970) 13
(7+6=13) 1976
germany(7 letters)(1974) argentina(9 letters)(1978) 16
(7+9=16)
(16x13=208)(2006-208=1798{rearange to find a year the cup was held on which is 1978}
the winner in 1978 was argentina
so argentina is the next world cup winner

this just goes to show what any old person can do with numbers

I think some people should get a life first...

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.

I divided the number of fries in my large McChicken meal, by the number of millilitres in the drink, multiplied by the number of nuggets I then consumed, took the cube root (3 being the number of attractive female employees I observed), and in doing so, mathematically proved that I do not exist. In fact, I had inadvertantly shown that I violated the quantum mechanical uncertainty principle, which disturbed me a little.

The moral to this story - ignore numbers. Alternatively, if you intend to quote/use them in the kind of manner mentioned above, please pursue one of the following careers :
* Soothsayer
* RTA Statistician
* Federal Government accountant / auditor
