But wait 3/3 is 1, so all numbers divisible by 1 are bad
So there's no mystery at all. The result just says that if you add your age to the year you were born (and then add 1 if you haven't had your birthday yet), you end up in the current year. That's pretty obvious, so it's surprising how many people seem to be stumped by it. After all we're all used to working out someone's age from their birth year, or vice versa, and we do this by subtracting the age or the birth year from the current year 2011. The calculation above is just the reverse of that. Maybe people find the calculation puzzling because once you reverse it in this way and leave off the first two digits of the year, the numbers lose their meaning as years or ages and just become abstract numbers. Then they also lose their temporal coherence, so there's no reason to suspect that the answer should always be 111.
So what if we were in another year, not 2011? If that year was 2000 or after, then the answer (as long as you were born before 2000) would be 100 plus the last two digits of the current year, as it is for 2011. If it was before 2000, then the answer would simply be the last two digits of the current year. You can work out for yourself what the answer is for someone born after 2000.

This year we will experience 4 unusual dates.... 1/1/11, 1/11/11, 11/1/11 and 11/11/11 .
Now go figure this out....
Take the last 2 digits of the year you were born plus the age you will be this year and it WILL EQUAL.... 111!
THIS IS SO STRANGE......NO MATTER HOW YOU DO IT THE RESULT IS THE SAME: 111 !
