I'm still not crazy about this bottle of change idea but here is a picture of it.



Sorry to go off on a tangent, but you can see the image is off by 90 degrees. I know full well how to use image editing software. However, when I rotate an image, the rotation doesn't survive an FTP transfer. Does anyone know how to truly rotate an image?




$ 833.20.......that's my guess...if you had not mentioned leaving pennies frequently I would have put it at $ 793.60

There appears to be no half dollars.

I would be a buyer of the jug without counting for 500.00 if you want to just get rid of it.😄

I want to make sure I have this change jar thing right...

I get how you would use a volume calculation and a density assumption to predict the amount,...

... But if the only two guesses are:
833.2 and 368.24

A difference of 464.96...

The exact midpoint is 600.72.

If no one else plays, that's my guess unless this is price is right rules... Closest without going over... If that's the case I'd like to guess $368.25.

Can I change my guess if someone else gusses?
What do I win? :-)
I love it when a plan comes together.

I'm willing to make you a side bet and give you 2 to 1 my guess is closer than your stated guess. My guess will be at least $100 higher or lower than your bet. @ 2 to 1 you shouldn't pass up on that. It's probably overall +EV for you at 2:1. I must admit, I went out and had a few cocktails tonight, so this offer may not last long, let me know ASAP before I change my mind.

Providing there is not a penalty for going over, I am open to something like that. Of corse Wizard would have to agree to letting us know. I admit that I am leery of your proposition. I am open to somewhere around 50-100 to your 100-200.

Dam cocktails, oh well, I will honor what I said.

Let's be clear

If your guess is and remains $833, then I will give you 2 to 1 that my guess will be closer to the correct amount than yours. ( It doesn't matter if someone guesses over the correct amount)
My guess must be $733 or less, or $933 or more, that way I can't guess $834 or $832(that would be really dumb at 2 to 1 anyways.)

I'll add a no weasel clause, meaning no word play BS or tricks on my wording or whatever.

If you agree to all that.... the bets on.

How much were you thinking? Don't take too much advantage of me on this one. Perhaps we make it fun and the bet will be whatever is in the jug?

Any golden dollars in there? I don't see many in Vegas.
It's what you do and not what you say If you're not part of the future then get out of the way
