Guess a number and the person who is closest to the number I am thinking of wins $100. I will end this contest some time tomorrow.

Dangling prepositions are things I can't deal with. :noway:

Perhaps you could give us a bit of a "Hot and Cold" sort of thing?
Or "Higher and Lower?" :mrgreen:

Dangling prepositions are good and fine in my opinion.

I should have mentioned this in the OP, but the number is between 100 and 0 inclusive. If you want to change your guesses given this new information you can.

Ifs are very good for the starts of sentences. For example: "If I was on the moon, I would be wearing a spacesuit" is perfectly standard English.

Then I change to 42. Because it is the answer to life, the universe, and everything.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. I love your literalness! :lol:

78, perhaps? Do we win anything if we guess correctly?

But only if that sentence ended with a question mark. :mrgreen:

If it ended with a question mark, it would be standard English, I believe.
---- edit ----
The number I was thinking of is 22, which I chose using a random number generator. Thus, it appears that Tikvah was the closest and thus she wins $100.

I don't plan to, because I don't want to give away more money.

GUESS MY FAVORITE NUMBER AND I'LL GIVE YOU $300.

THERE IS NO TIME LIMIT, THOUGH YOU MUST GUESS THE EXACT VALUE.
I WILL GIVE "Higher/Lower" HINTS, BUT ONLY ONCE PER 48 HOURS PER-PERSON (ie. if you make a guess, and I tell you "higher," and I will not answer "higher/lower" for another of your guesses unless that guess has been made at least 48 hours after the previous guess).

THE NUMBER IS BETWEEN 1 AND 100,000.
OK, GO! :mrgreen:

...

ACTUALLY, I'M GOING TO MAKE THIS IN ANOTHER THREAD.
