Wassup, parrty people!

Danceparty

Decided I should make a game with REAL PRIZES!

So here's the question:

You have to correctly guess my entire collection. That's right. EVERY. SINGLE. ANIMAL.


And the prizes will be either:

40 Blatta lateralis (Turkistan Roaches)

OR

1 subadult Centruroides vittatus


Sorry international people, can't send where you are!
This will end at 8:00 Eastern Standard Time. (USA)

hehehe what do you expect from someone aged 212!!!!

depends on what you mean by guess your collection, are you just wanting species names or the exact amount of each species, or even what's male / female / juvi!

this thread could be going for years lmao!

Lemme see, here.

Scientific name and the number of specimens.

Not the cockroaches, though. (I don't even know!)

What a silly contest. I'm guessing that nobody is going to win or even attempt it because it's so vague.

Come on people!

I'm giving everybody exactly 2 hours and 8 minutes to guess!

I bet if I put up an adult female P. mettalica as prize, I would get a lot more people!

But I'm not going to give her up. Not just yet...

awesome

Well that was kind of dumb, then. What were the odds of someone ACTUALLY guessing the ten species you own, out of the potentially thousands there could be? It's compounded by the fact that you never specified how many species of each order, or total number of species you keep.

We don't fail at guessing, you fail at contesting. No

Sorry if I came off as a jerk, but my coffee hadn't kicked in. Embarassed

Rarely does the first draft get it right -- be it a new traffic law or a scorpion-themed contest. Razz
