"Let that sink"

Hey, quick question. 

If you were born in 2005, how old does that make you right now? I'm not asking for me. I'm asking for my pal here who is being mercilessly roasted by the internet for his shaky mathematical gymnastics. 

Let that sink

Please let that sink. 

For the record, if you were born in 2005, you would be turning 12 this year. If you were born in 1997 you would be turning 20 this year. Some fun facts and figures for all the math buffs in the crowd. 

People quickly hit @sandalshagger with some hilarious reactions.

And some even theorized that @sandalshagger was a time traveler from the year 2025.


This person even tried to inject their personal experience into the conversation to mixed results.

@sandalshagger then stepped in to clear up the misunderstanding but somehow made matters more confusing.


Let's all just agree to collectively stay away from math on the internet from now on, yeah?
