Ain't done that inna while. A book!
"The Top 300 Trade Secrets of a Master Clockmaker - Huckabee
This is focused toward American clock repair altho the methods and counsel could apply to many others.
You know the drill: Picka number between 1 and 99
If two choose the same number, the first choice will win.
Contest open to any board member anywhere on the globe.
NO SHIPPING cost. I pay postage ANYwhere.
Certified, qualified clockmakers are welcome. You may want to give this to your student.
I don't care what you do with it - it's yours!
Again, BONG will be the contest master and shall not know the number until he picks a number if he chooses or elects not to choose a number.
Contest will end 10 PM CST, Sunday, May 30.

For some reason 37 came to mind, so let's see if it the lucky no.

The giveaway is a great idea.

I find the geometry of choices interesting: The various diamonds formed, the continuous line from 27 to 60 and the diamond formed by choices of 49, 50, 59, and 60 seem to resemble a sort of fly swatter!
I also find the psychology of picks interesting. This is the third one I have tracked and studied.
Notice the high preference for choices in the 50 and 1 columns - 60% of each column! If one were to plot and graph these three contests, they would be extremely similar. Huh. Intellesting.

So MSH ventures into the very dangerous uncharted nineties column and JAY just ruined my FLY SWATTER!
Let's see: Bet this is better.
