If you don't count Whiterook's 6.5 prediction (we all know he was going for the Brown in this prediction challenge) I take the booby prize at minus 17.6%. And, once again, I'm defeated in my quest for a worst-of score, and once again it's at the hand of the master :-)

Thanks - now it's all as clear as the proverbial!

Slightly below expected flight trajectory. A loss of altitude was expected at this point. There is still hope for the generous voters in the final days and the scrub.

So my prediction? 5.5 :)


One large frozen trout...coming up.

Should've picked the 5.4519 instead of the 6.1136. 6 days remain so who knows.
