IMHO Installment #108: Guessing Games Are Better My Way

03 Apr 2008

I realized something today as I was setting up a guessing game for the Horn Dogs here: I don't like guessing games that rank winners by "closest without going over." If there are 2,000 pennies in a jar, and person A guesses 2,001 while person B guesses 1,800, I believe person A should win the jar. 2001 is, objectively, a better guess. The person who thought up this whole "without going over" business was a motherfucking prick. (Whew ... I feel better now. I hope the horn dogs here like my improved rules.)
