We went shopping today.

And now the quiz part... how much did that trolly full cost?

Answers as comments please. Closest gets a big hug from the housemate of your choice. The management reserve the right to substitute chosen housemate for another. MSN hugs may also be used

Update: Toph has won...

Here is the Till receipt, for your viewing.

110.86

No guessing from me, mainly cos I know how much it cost, but just a note asking if people can see properly? Look at how FULL the trolley is...

Also, Ed, are we allowing more than one guess per person?

Depends how much people want to hug one of us really. Depending on who it is I'll allow more than one attempt :)

Keep them going until they get it to the penny... :D

A hint... the receipt was 72cm long (that's 28 inches)

Posted by: Ed on April 8, 2003 11:30 PM

28 Inches, thats like the height of me....

Anyway

erm...

200

Posted by: Paddy on April 8, 2003 11:42 PM

180?

Posted by: Jo on April 8, 2003 11:57 PM

197

And cos i'm bored... my last till recipt from asda was 41 inches and came to 299.33 - quick bit of maths.....your shop would be 204.42p :oP

Did you take off the bits for the header and the footer (ie none items) off you list? The 28 inches includes them by the way.

240

Posted by: TraB on April 9, 2003 08:21 PM

Based on Ed's 'hint' i'm gonna reguess at 178

Posted by: Adam on April 9, 2003 08:53 PM

Ah crap, my hint was bollocks :( Went the wrong direction... doh! Trab is too high... woo woo someone has guessed too high!

Posted by: Ed on April 9, 2003 10:58 PM

So somewhere between 200 and 240. Based on your updated hint (tut) I'm going for 232.81

Posted by: Adam on April 9, 2003 11:04 PM

But, Adam, you don't like hugs! I'm not going to give anymore hints for a while... better give other folks a chance :)

Posted by: Ed on April 9, 2003 11:06 PM

234.56
mostly cos I like the number...but it's as random as any other guess!

Posted by: Sarah:) on April 9, 2003 11:41 PM

My Makro Reciept was about 28" long, and came to 350,

Which was quite painfull,

but that gives 12.50 an inch,

i'll guess 222.22,

again number looks cool - loads of ducks lined up

Posted by: Paddy on April 10, 2003 12:40 AM

250, impressivly full trolley!

Posted by: John on April 10, 2003 02:10 PM

My guess is 217.95

Don't know why, it just is.

Posted by: Toph on April 11, 2003 06:47 PM

With that last guess... we are within a pound of the correct answer... woo woo... keep going :)

Posted by: Ed on April 11, 2003 07:11 PM

217.54

Posted by: Sarah on April 12, 2003 01:04 PM

Woo... within a whole 20p now :)

Anyone new want to try and guess? or does no one want a hug of one of us!? :) hehe :)

Posted by: Ed on April 12, 2003 01:19 PM

217.71

Can I swap the hug with a house mate to a hug with female friend of a housemate?

Posted by: Toph on April 12, 2003 01:31 PM

217.30

Posted by: Jo on April 12, 2003 03:03 PM

217.30... how's that within 20p? :)

Posted by: Ed on April 12, 2003 03:16 PM

217.37

Posted by: Rosie on April 15, 2003 10:32 PM

Just for pride rather than prize.

217.36

Posted by: Toph on April 17, 2003 10:56 PM

And just to hedge my bets:

217.38

:-)

Posted by: Toph on April 17, 2003 10:57 PM

Congratulations Toph. You have won the hug. Let us know who you want the hug from and it shall be your's.

A link to the receipt can be found in the update section of the post :)

Well after many negotiations with Ed about donations of hugs and possibilities of female hugs, he wouldn't change the rules, so as i don't know Ant or Russ, live near Halifax I have had to accept a MSN hug from Ed.
