Since Greggy has not shown yet @greggy  :makepoint:

In his honor I will make my guess $6666

Thank you.

 

ugh -- I really hate the nonsense bids. It screws up the point of having statistics. So I will do with yours as I did with greggy's last year-- record the actual bid but only record a number in the listing that is 200 more than the highest bid.

Not mad at you-- just really wish people would take the contest more seriously from that perspective. I help run these types of things on a college football prediction board as well and every now and then we get some joker saying the score will be 200-3 and it totally ruins the stats if I include that (typically I just note the outlandish prediction). So this is an ongoing thing I deal with. Funny? -- oh yeah-- hilarious. But in the end it is a joke guess/entry that few really think about but ends up making my stats less relevant.

:news:

Had to catch up answering P.M.s, e mails, phone calls, tagging boxes, and spot lights in my window. Ready to roll more stuff out before midnight. And I had to grab another beer. Someone go and try and bring Lizard back to life.

We have an extra prize donated by Grebal. It is a hard cover copy of The Human Torch. When the U.F.O. pops up, the first :takeit: gets the book. You will have to get in touch with him for shipping details. A big thanks to him for the donation. U.S. residents only. Thanks.

Just post my name with a blank and don't add it into the average. There is a reason I didn't want to try to win. I sent a pm.

I have to record the guess as written -- I have altered it to a reasonable outlier to miminize impact to the stats-- if $6666 wins, I will be shocked
