Road Trip!

Since the weather is soooo gorgeous today (NOT), GF and I will be hopping in the car shortly for a little get-the-hell-out-of-the-city jaunt. Which means we'll be having a (very) little CONTEST!

First...THE PRIZE: In the name of full disclosure, you should know that this is a bit of re-gifting from Christmas. It's still in it's original packaging. I'm not going to tell you what it is, but it's something that some of you could receive and go, "Ooooh! Hours of fun! W00000t!" Others (myself included) will look at it and go, "Meh! I think I'll put this on a shelf until we have a yard sale or an opportunity to re-gift it again." Hint: The prize involves math-for-fun -- a concept which is utterly alien to me.

THE CHALLENGE: Easy-peasey! Guess how many miles we'll put on the car today. How easy is that?

As always, Lurkers and Noobs are welcome to join in.

LEGAL DISCLAIMER: The proprieter of Polybloggimous shall be the sole judge in determining a winner. Cheating on his part is permissable (though, why he'd cheat, we can't imagine). Contestants who have lawsuits pending in Hawaii and/or Utah are not eligible to win. Proprieters of A&YSR are not eligible because they'd only make fun of me anyway. That girl who hit me over the head with a lunch tray in 4th grade is not eligible. The Owners, Employees and anyone who has ever been employed by StubHub are eligible but if they win, they will only recieve a notification that their "prize" is not really a "prize" and their recompense shall be in the form of deleting and returning their entry within 25-65 business days. Anyone who annoyed me last Sunday shall not be eligible. Anyone who was driving on I-95 last week at the same time as John the Scientist will not be eligible. Employees of the Palmer, AK Post Office are eligible but will be required to pick up their prize at the Palmer, AK Post Office on December 23rd, 2009 during the Christmas Rush -- no cut-sies. Employees of my Pet Food Store are eligible but will need to reimburse me my 3¢ before collecting their prize -- only 100-dollar bills will be accepted and I have nothing smaller than a 20 for change. Proprieter reserves the right to make up other rules as the notion hits him and retains this right in perpetuity and may post said rule changes via any media now known or hereafter devised, (including but not limited to Vulcan Mind-Meld). Offer void where prohibited. Batteries not included. Some Assembly Required. Not for children under 5 years of age. Microwave oven in use.

462 miles, but if I win and the prize is "math for fun," then please send it to the aforementioned UT/HI litigants, because my interest is about on a par with yours.

All of them.

More than three, less than a thousand.

More precise?

177 miles.

234 miles.
And I did not see anything in your disclaimer about having to be a resident of the USA.
THAT ONE is always there, buried somewhere.

Jeri said...

99 miles.

And do you have a car now, or is this one for one of the productions you or Anon GF are working on?

MWT said...

My guess is 275 miles.

I'm leaving the contest open until Noon EST. This will give:

- some more people an opportunity to enter.

- the batshit insane entries a chance to wallow in their loserness.

- me a chance to walk out the the car and look at the finishing mileage (which I forgot to do last night).

It's 12:25 -- am I too late?

No need to check. You know I'm right.

No clause in the legal about the Paradox of Accurate Ambiguity. :-P
