BTW, I've used this "group average" method with great success to win the annual work Christmas party "guess how many hershey kisses are in the big glass container" contest two or three years running. I keep telling everyone else how I'm doing it, but nobody listens...

I, too, know how you are putting on all that excess weight. Some of them might be happy to lose that contest.

I'll be removing a few from the tally, but if the price keeps jumping as it did today, Trombone Al might not be far off .

The results are in!

I've weeded out a few of the more overly optimistic, pessimistic, and oddball predictions and it would appear that the average price of one ounce of gold on Apr.24 2008 as predicted by this poll shall be $792.95.

See you in April...
