Just saw an interesting commercial for e-trade

greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

The person who guesses closest to where the Dow is at the end of the year wins a million bucks. I had the TV on for background noise, so didn't pick up on it end the last half. The guy starting at his screen in the commercial was guessing, "Hmmm, 13,000?"....

so didn't pick up on it UNTIL the end of the last half.

Sorry 'bout that :::embarrassed:::

I won't hurt to guess. I like the MacDonalds y2k commercial.

At Dec#1, 1999 the Dow will be 30000. Rock on!

My prediction is that no one will win unless someone hacks the system and gets every possible number submitted. They want you to get to the nearest one-hundreth decimal place, which has got to be astronomical odds, higher than the lottery.

I don't like the MacDonalds y2k commercial. :-)
