    CLOSED: Candy Guessing Contest #19.
    here we go-


    Guess how many Jelly Beans are in this glass container to win RideCBR points.
    Ive included a reference pic for you serious counters!
    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 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(and possibly real points!).
    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.

    This Contest ends 8/20/2014 at midnight!
    GOOD LUCK

    Nice quarter, 90% silver. I have 13 pounds of them. My father collected them when they switched to a cheaper alloy in the 60s. He gave them to me about 20 years ago and said to never sell them. He didn’t trust our money after the end of the gold standard in 1971 and he saw how easy it was to just print up current fiat money. It was funny, he was a machinist for years, but he would have made a brilliant economist.

    Sorry….tangent.

    @cragar – thanks for the guess!

    The Report : Of all the candy ive used in these contests , these were the absolute best! The top favorites in the bag were- Rootbeer , popcorn , coffee and the best in show was the tangerine ones, dayum those were good! Ive become careful about what I say around the yoots , they found out about the rootbeer ones I was lovin and suddenly there were no more rootbeer ones, ha! The whole family loved these . If you haven’t tried the new gourmet jelly beans , treat yourself , these beat the hell out of the cheapo ones.

    Thanks for the participation in guessing game #19 . Points on their way
    Have a good weekend Riders-

    Congrats to all the winners… That was everyone that participated the candy games are cool, as we get to mess around and just through numbers out there. @bambam thanks for setting up the game and for the 5 free points, need them if I am going to catch up with everyone. I have to agree with @74demon the winner should get to eat the candy also. Well hell let me give you 50 points you can go buy a bag of your own.
