I don't usually share e-mails floating around the Internet, but this one from my father made me smile today.

Subject: Fw: Who's Your Role Model

    Find out who truly is your role model


     FIRST,  do the simple math below...
     THEN,  scroll down to find your hero.

     It is truly remarkable just how accurate this is!
    1)  Pick your favorite number between 1 and 8
    2)  Multiply your choice by 3
    3)  Add 3
    4)  Multiply again by 3  
    5) You'll get a 2 digit number.....maybe 42, for example
    6) Add the digits together. 
         Example 4 and 2 = 6

    Scroll down.....

    With that number, see who your ROLE MODEL is from the list  below:
    1. Albert Einstein
    2. Oprah Winfrey
    3. Mother Theresa
    4. Ronald Reagan
    5. Bill Gates 
    6. Gandhi 
    7. Eleanor Roosevelt
    8. Babe Ruth
    9. Dad
    10.Pat king
    11.Winston Churchill
    12.Barbara Walters 
    13.Dalai Lama

     I know, I know...I just have that effect on people...One day you, too, can be like me....Believe it!

      P.S. Stop picking different numbers!!  I AM YOUR IDOL, JUST DEAL WITH IT!

Thanks, Dad. I would have picked you anyway, but I'll use this trick on my kids.
