    Of course you'll get those numbers (that is 111)... because from the year you were born, add the number of years that passed (ie your age), you'll get 111 everytime, unless you were born as from 2000 onwards, or before 1900.

    Actually it wont. Anyone born after 2000 will not have this happen. Say you were born in 2002 then their age would be 9 this year but 2+9=11, but if you subract 1900 it will instead of 2000 from their year of birth it will still give you the same number.

    edit: haha I am to slow

    awesome thanks for the replies.. I think that this was posted on face book for me to come and meet you people... Cuz im like a genius but i suck at math.. what do call that? Do have a block for math.. maybe i dunno.. But this thing is i can process most if not all information fairly well aslong as numbers aren't involved.. So i say that to say.. how do you all suggest i brush up on my skills.. and although its been answered please continue to expand on the original 111 thought aswell..if you want.
