Prediction Game: How many Q's will "500 Questions" get to?

Post by MinnesotaMyron »

According to BuzzerBlog's twitter:
Tonight is the two-hour finale. If they stay on average (41 questions/hour) then they'll hit 369 questions...
So, how many questions do you think they'll actually get to? Respond in this thread with your guess, and tonight during my break at work I'll tally up who was closest. First tie-break is Price is Right style (the guesser who didn't go over wins); second tie-break is earliest posting.

One guess per person. Edited posts will not be considered, so think carefully before clicking submit. Submission deadline is 6:59:59 pm, Central Time.

3rd prize: pride
2nd prize: more pride
1st prize: most pride

Good luck.
