    Waaaaaaaaaaay too easy.

  2. Myself Says:

    Yes, but the prize usually matches the difficulty, at least roughly. I don’t need another tripod so I won’t be entering, and I assume it’ll go to some kid who doesn’t have a tripod already, and for whom this component is relatively new and interesting.

    I wonder if, with some prize donations and possibly submissions of tricky “things”, there could be a second contest each week, with harder challenges and cooler prizes. What say you, Alan?

  3. leethax0 Says:

    Yes, it’s easy, but only if you have seen one before 🙂

  4. Alan Parekh Says:

    Yes this is one of the easier ones… I don’t want to do tough ones every week. 🙂 That way everyone can participate. I am thinking that the monthly contest could be expanded to have a very tough item to guess in addition to the comment portion.

    It’s a *** ***. And a tiny one at that. You should do something harder like a neutrino detector or a pipe pig. I know hundreds of things that would be better name that things.

  6. Alan Parekh Says:

    Hi positive anion,

    Email in your answer, please do not answer in the comments.

  7. Mike Says:

    Alan – How many entries do you usually get for a contest?

  8. feki00 Says:

    I think its secret. Isnt it? 🙂

  9. Alan Parekh Says:

    No big secret. 🙂 It ranges from about 70 to 300 depending on how hard the question is.

    Winner announced.
