    This is a simple mathematical exercise that can identify your favorite movie.

    Try this test and find out which movie is your favorite. This amazing math quiz can likely predict which of 18 movies you would enjoy the most.

    It really works! .... for MOST of us (that matter) anyway!

    Movie Quiz:

    1. Pick a number from 1-9.

    2. Multiply by 3.

    3. Add 3.

    4. Multiply by 3 again.

    5. Now add the two digits of your answer together to find your favorite movie in the list of 18 movies below:


    Movie List:

    1. Gone With the Wind

    2. E.T.

    3. Blazing Saddles

    4. Star Wars

    5. Forrest Gump

    6. The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

    7. Jaws

    8. Grease

    9. The Obama Farewell Speech of 2012

    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

    Now, ain't that something...? Didn't I tell you it really works?

    Just goes to show that the only people who won't be glad to see Obama leave are irrational.

    Of note is the point that a farewell speech from obama would be a feature length movie. 90+ minutes of 'not my fault, inherited from Bush, did the best I could,...'
