620, as usual. I'll be sporting that sirt all over Warsaw!!!

580. no whammies!

My guess is... 498!


I just doubled my current count, because I'm pretty sure your count is twinning. Thus, 584, big money, big money.

I'm going with 567 again this time. It just feels right. :)


583 is my guess, but I hope you hit 640!! Can't wait to wear my screw smarter t-shirt to work:)

I'm going with 512 this time around.

I'll shoot for 612.

521 all day every day. Tie breaker: your pregnancy test= negative.


615 all the way!


Doubling down and going with 515 again.

552, dawg. (Which is, coincidentally, the same number of times we defended our doubles tennis title without ever being defeated.)

602 and I want the Synthetic T in Medium.

I'm sticking with my steady 617. :)

535, why the hell not

535, why the hell not


I guess 612 mm3. I hope its even higher.

666 Just for the Hell of it.

Paul Kidd did this same contest on his website in the late '90s (fortunately, he's still around but I think the website is gone). First guy to make me laugh at this diagnosis - He gave away t-shirts too! I wish I had won one of them.

I remember off his site seeing an Intel-like logo with "HIV Inside!"..and "Do I swallow? You Bet! 273,714 (some ridiculous number) pills and still going!"..he was brash, crass..and die-hard humorous at a time when most of us would be crying.

Thanks for the memory flash! For your count...I'll guess 615?
