    CLOSED: Candy Guessing Contest #18.
    here we go-
    Guess how many “Lemon Heads” are in this glass container to win RideCBR points.

    The closest guess will receive the following:
    Exact Number: 1000 RideCBR Points
    Closest Number: 500 RideCBR Points
    Second Closest: 250 RideCBR Points
    Third Closest: 100 RideCBR Points
    NOTE: Closest to the exact amount without going over wins on this one-
    Post your guesses in a reply below. One guess per person so choose wisely.
    Broken pieces are removed if they are less than half the normal size.
    If a number is copied from another guess, it will be lowered to the next available number.
    If a fraction is used ,it will be rounded down to the next available number.
    Feel free to use whatever counting method you wish, but make sure I can put a number on it. lol
    Colors, animals, pictures or just plain fun stuff can be added for style points but won’t count in the actual contest. But I welcome all the fun stuff you guys bring to these games. Keep it coming.
    Thanks for playing, you guys make this fun. More to come soon.
    Happy 4th of July riders-
    This Contest ends 7/09/2014 at midnight!
    GOOD LUCK

    So, the volume of a two dimensional closed surface in a three-dimensional Euclidean space = I have no fucking clue what I’m talking about.

    OK…a sphere’s volume is calculated by 4/3*PI()r^3. So if the jar was full, r would be about 6 lemonheads. So that would be about 904.79. A lemonhead, if a perfect sphere would be about 4.18879. Divide that into the size of the jar would be about 216. However, lemonheads, perfect, they are not. So, lets figure that they average about 17% less of a perfect sphere meaning that now 377.76 would fit. But alas, since @bambam already ate some, that would leave an estimated 76.237% full, bringing that number down to about 288. Add an additional 13 for the bottom section and that brings us to 301.

    So my guess is 473.
    No, 294.
    314 Final answer

    BTW, you probably don’t want to depend on my high school math.

    @cbr-f2 great picture, but your wrong about the number of lemon heads in the jar.

    @woo545 idk where you went to school or how you learned math but damn that fucked me up, you need to look at it more like pi 3.14159265359 / the size of the jar – the equality of lemon heads that @bambam had already eaten given the factor of square root of the prime number = 137

    The correct answer is 137 final answer no need for anyone else to guess.

    You are all wrong as you forgot to take into account the refraction of the light hitting the bowl,divided by the amount of hours I slept last night, or is that subtract the minutes …

    My best guess is…. 187

    @bambam I was on vacation last week near your beautiful city. Just got back. I need to find a job in your area, that would be like a year long vacation.

    I see you got tricky with this one with the whacky shaped jar. If any of you bothered to look closely you’d see that the answer is clearly 293 without any ifs ands or buts. Then again it could be 336 or 349 or 323 with heat expansion or 274 or 254 or 263 with cold shrinkage … but I digress; the answer is clearly 293.

    @theredrocket – Thanks for playing bro
    @cbr-f2 – Awesome pic brother, I like the use of the two added, well done.Thx
    @sdm1 – Square root of the prime number! Haahaa , good stuff , thanks man
    @northman – Im with ya on the light refraction , it did play a roll. Divided by the amount of sleep-not so much. Thanks for playing.
    @borderline4laska – Thanks for throwing in a guess bud.
    @jnsracing – Thanks for participating brother.

    @redstar – Nope , didn’t eat any until after the picture, I wasn’t impressed when I ate one tho. Thanks for participating
    @lowcel – nobody had a clue brother , the way the glass was shaped , it was pure trickery! Thanks for joining in bud.

    Thanks for all the participation in this game,Great turn out. I appreciate every guess.

    The Report: Ok , the “lemon Heads” are not a little piece of lemon heaven , far from it. I would describe these as little balls of rolled up lemon pledge furniture polish, although some were extremely sour , others just tasted like pure sugar , I believe I have lost my sweet tooth, I don’t care for these at all . The fam wanted to tear into the bag the day I brought it home, it was tuff keeping the yoots away from the bag until the picture.
    There weren’t rave reviews from the kids either(I thot my teenagers would eat anything sugar related). Altho I do have a good use for the half bag that remains untouched, they work quite well in a slingshot.

    Thanks for the awesome forum @admin , Please award these winning Riders their points.

    New game coming soon…

    @bambam @admin

    Thanks for putting the contest up and letting us all have a little fun and take a break from the norm. Feels good to get away for a bit even if it is just to read the crazy answers and tease each other a bit. Great forum feels like home already :drunk:

    Was it the Ferrera Pan brand? I guess I like furniture polish or punishment because I kind of like’em. Stores around here can never keep them in stock. They’re sold out almost as soon as they put them on the shelves.

    I just missed Voting by like a week (or six) But more importantly you guys keep blaming an innocent man for eating the lemon heads!!! It clearly states that THE FAMILY WANTED TO TEAR INTO THEM THE MINUTE HE BROUGHT THE BAG HOME!!!! BAM BAM in not the one to blame here, It is clearly the wife and fruit of his loins that ate the candy and threw off the betting…..
