Oozing Goo - The Lava Lamp Syndicate

LampHead's Lava Lamp Contest : Everyone is invited

Does anyone remember the old jellybean contests ?? Where you had to guess how many jellybeans were in a jar. I remember them from school days (along time ago in a far away galaxy...LOL) and sometimes for charitys and such etc.

Well im am going to give away a original USA made blue/white 32oz globe (globe only) to the member who can guess how much money I have in a jug. I have been collecting my change in a jug like most people do, however for 10 years I have used a 5 gallon water bottle and have filled it to the top, for the last 3 months I have been shaking it to compact the change so I can fit more but finally I can not cram anymore change into the bottle so its time to take her in. The bottle is bulging and I would guess it weighs about 600lbs. The member who comes closest to the total will receive the globe, I will pay the shipping so no cost to anyone, its kinda like my stimulus package to the goo lovers :) I want everyone to take a guess, you dont have to be a normal poster here or anything, even the lurkers are welcome to join this.

My guess dont count and I have a pretty good idea of the amount I have but I will not post it until the contest is over so nobody is swayed with their guess....I think it should be interesting to see how much the guess's vary. So below I want everyone to take their best shot, you can edit your post as much as you want until Monday May 4th when I will announce the total.

Hmmmm... $427.63
Hey great contest, my guess is $4093.01
A few more pics of the change before its off to the bank, I may have to make 2 trips so I will extend the contest until Tuesday so keep the guesses coming.

I correct myself and say $450.00...
Is it just the closest person, or does one have to get it on the nose? I think you should clarify that in your first post.

Did I miss it or something?
I have to make a stupid guess... a trip to the chiropractor ;)
Contest closed. Results will be posted in a few moments.

That was 30 minutes ago. Are you counting it now???????? The suspense is KILLER!!!!!!
Alright, first off my guess was $3300, so needless to say I am slightly disappointed in the total but its basically going to Turks and Caicos with me and the wife this Saturday as "extra" fun money so overall I cant complain, I know I will have a good time !!

On to the contest....there were a few that came close but none closer than Blind Faith. His guess was $2071 and the total was $2046.14. Congrats to Blind Faith the winner !! Thanks to everyone for participating it was very cool seeing what everyones guess's were.

Blind Faith I will PM you for your info.

That is SAWEET! Lots of money for spending :) - CONGRATS Blind Faith! That was a lot of change!
