Guess The Coin Amount, Win Cool Prizes

By on

Happy Friday! Something for a fun Friday (and a pay-day Friday for me!). I have had the coin jar (below) on my desk for the last few months. Into this, I put all change I get through the day. This weekend I am taking it to Commerce Bank's Penny Arcade and turning that coinage into cash. If you can come close to guessing how much it's all worth, you get a cool prize (not yet determined - generosity will probably depend on how much cash I get).

Did anyone else have people in school who would brink in a two-liter soda bottle full of Jolly Ranchers and give it to whoever guessed how many were in it? School is cool.

Just "comment" your guesses, no cool submit form with scantily clad chicks this time ;)

The verdict is in - Commerce Bank has spoken. My coins totaled in at a sweet $140.15. That makes Thomas Messier our closest "under" winner at $135.00 and CJ our closest "over" winner at $143.73.

Congratulations!

Regarding rewards, I will contact you off line at the emails provided in your comment posting. If you do not get my email within the next hour, please contact me as perhaps it went to spam or something.

If you didn't come close, better luck next time!

I believe in love. I believe in compassion. I believe in human rights. I believe that we can afford to give more of these gifts to the world around us because it costs us nothing to be decent and kind and understanding. And, I want you to know that when you land on this site, you are accepted for who you are, no matter how you identify, what truths you live, or whatever kind of goofy shit makes you feel alive! Rock on with your bad self!
