4 million is coming! Contest?

  1. Here's the current tally of posts on ET, based on the publically-available counter...


    So how about a contest on the 4,000,000 mark? The winner gets a free dinner at Red Lobster, all-you-can-eat shrimp.

    I estimate, on zero analytical grounds, that we will hit 4,000,000 posts on December 18th. Like a celebrity death pool, but with shrimp.

  2. I would like to up that bid to a free dinner at Morton's Steakhouse.
  3. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. Dey's uh, shrimp-kabobs,shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There's pineappleshrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimpstew, shrimp salad, shrimp and potatoes, shrimp burger, shrimp sandwich...


    I go with 15th of Dec... triple witching day!
  4. Mmm, steak! A surf & turf! I agree!
  5. December 28th
    I'll have the Ribeye medium with mashed potatoes and creamed spinach.
    Thanks Baron :)
  6. Morton's, yep that'll work...Dec 13.
  7. I would rather prefer an autographed shirt of Baron, instead of the shrimp.
    Limited Edition. Serial Number 2 of only 5 made.
    High-Five, Pekelo...another high-five to Xela`
  8. Uh oh. Only a month left and still 66,000 posts to go. Can I change my date? If so, I'd change it to Feb 18th.
  9. Gooooong. You're out.
    You might have actually won, but we'll never know until we can ascertain how many posts ZB actually deleted.
  10. *seethes* I knew this was going to come bite me in the ass. That's why in my last post I changed it to Feb 18th (next year), so I am still in!

    And since I am still in, I now change it to Sep 18th 2018!

    *throws gong at vanz*
  11. What if you win and you don't live in the U.S. and there's no Red Lobster ?

    Can you select one of the local 4 - 5 star restaurants ?
  12. 5-star only. Ho-Jos (A USA thing) used to get 4-star ratings because they had a motel attached, and they were asstasstic.
  13. It's a $250 value so we will work it out regardless of the restaurant.
  14. The current count is 3,970,000 (I rounded it). That is 42K posts in about 10 weeks, so 42K/70=600 posts/day

    Assuming similar distribution over the next few weeks: 30K/600= about 50 days left.

    So my guess is (looks like Overnight already did the math) Valentine's day plus a week because year's end will have less posts. So February 21st.
