Easy Contest, I just got married!
I guess this belongs here now, it is def. not technical in nature. I have been wanting to do this for a little while but did not know where to post. Here goes:
I will award three prizes from which first place will be able to pick 4 items, second place 3 items and 3rd place 2 items (limit of one piece of hardware per person). The items up for grabs are:
Dune 2000 with manual and box
Microsoft Encarta Encyclopedia 2000
Sohoware 4 port hub, missing ac adapter(size of calculator and works well)
Cyrix PR 200MMX chip (about 80% sure this actually works-- no flames if it does not)
Visitalk headset new(good for using Visitalk or dialpad)
HP CD-RW disc, new
The contest is to answer this question: For how many years have I known my wife AND how many of those years have we been dating/engaged?
First closest to the right answer gets first place and is first to pick, and so on. I will run the contest for 48 hours. GO
im guessing that youve known her for about 15+-1yrs and married for about 8+- 1or 2 years..

Good guess, but search the forums for how old I am, I have posted it at least once. Hint: I am not that old Also, I will say each person gets 2 total guesses.

My first guess: known eachother for 4 years, 3 and a half years dating and 1 year engaged
My second guess: known eachother 7 years, dating for 2 and a half years and engaged for 1 and a half years.
Let's see...you're 25 or so.
Known your wife for 6 years, dated 5.5 years, engaged for 1.5
And just married this month.
known her for less than a year, been married less than a month.
Known her for 5 years, dating 9 months, been married for 2.
well, lets see. you have known each other for:
GUESS 1: year and a half and you have been married 2 weeks.
GUESS 2: year and married two weeks
Guess 1 - Known for 7 years, married for less than 1
Guess 2 - Known for 4 years, married for less than 1
Guess 1: Known 7 yrs, dated/engaged 3
Guess 2: Known 6 yrs, dated/engaged 2
Let me see.....I`ll start with you`ve been living in sin for 10 years and you just got married this past weekend and discovered there`s nothing to do so here we are.
One of you patient members could always go through his 750 posts if you reeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaally wanted to win...
My wife and I met in 1989, our freshman year in high school. We started dating during our senior year, got engaged 2 years ago and were married June 10, 2000 at Kirkwood United Methodist Church. The winners are jokostel, jad1097, and shadow. Each of you were a combined total of 5.5 years off. This brings up an issue. Which one of you wins first place, which one wins second, and which on wins third? The only thing I can think of is to have one more mini-contest to separate you. Name my birthdate, month and day only. The closest gets first, and so on. Unless you guys can think of a better way?
