in which he was born, multiply it by two, add five, multiply that by fifty,
add his age, subtract 365, add 115, ask for the answer. The first digit in
the answer will tell the month of birth and the last two will be his age. If
the answer has four digits, the first two will be the month.

dioxide keeps going and the buttons sink back to collect more. They will
bounce up and down for quite awhile. Add more vinegar as they slow down.
