    Game 21 – here we go! This seems like it will be a good one!

    Guess how many Nerds are in this glass container to win RideCBR points.
    Ive included a reference pic for you serious counters! (its a Buffalo Nickel)
    Fair warning here , the second pic is quite the illusion!
    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!).
    Thanks for the good suggestion @woo545 about the Nerds- this will be a tuff game!
    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 10/31/2014 at midnight!
    GOOD LUCK

    @bambam I think you should get a few points for counting all of the little… boogers and then placing them in that bottle. Goodness gracious.

    sad fact….. when I was a kid they had this promo where you could “adopt a nerd” just like a cabidge patch kid…… sent away for and got one….he was green…..named him Snarf….yeah, I watched thunder cats….

    years later I found it in the attic and gave it to my wife, she loved it, thought it was awesome and road around with it on the dash of the car for a long time. Looked like this, from around 1984…

    In Unix’s chmod, the value 777 grants all file access permissions to all user types. I have no idea what that means or how that applies here but with these contests at least I find out something interesting about every number. :bashing:

    I’ll grant you the first 6 and the last 6 but that middle 6 is quite a stretch :-D

    Dude, that’s insane! the jar looks rather deceptive as well!

    1776
    NUTS…I’m boosting the number 2118

    If the jar were uniform I’d go with about 22% less, but I have the feeling that the light is bending around the jar and that there’s much more in the center than it would seem. I wouldn’t be surprised if my estimate came up far short of the actual number.

    @woo545 – You were right , the pictures were very deceiving! I’m not even sure the reference pic with the nickel even helped this time. thanks for the play brother.

    The Container: The glass container was the cool part of this one , the candies-Meh.. I got this glass container from my parents a while back , after their trip to Italy , it was a small bottle a Lemon liquor called “Lemon Cello” or as they call it “Limón cello”, it’s a brutally sour lemon based liquor that’s very popular over there in that part of Europe, it’s usually served ice cold in a small glass , I like it with the sugar around the rim. Not my fav drink ,but as a ‘Murican , it’s a very classy little drink. Oddly, from what my folks said , there were little vendors selling this stuff all over the place on the streets like hot dog carts and even the locals drink this stuff all the time.

    The Report : Not much to say about these little nerd candies , But they were much more sour than I remembered . I would liken them to aquarium gravel, not that I’ve eaten aquarium gravel, but I’m sure that the texture is close. Lets just say they were perfect for the little container I had. I guess the teenagers liked em , they are long gone …

    Thanks for playing guessing game #21 . Points on their way
    Have a good weekend Riders-
