The Envelope Please....

My prediction for the number of times the president would invoke "terror" and its variations in the SOTU speech was 19. The actual count was 20. Close, but not good enough according to the inverse "Price is Right" rule in effect for the contest. The TCR Conflation and Obfuscation Analyzer will be sent for recalibration in the morning.

The winner is "Tuimel" who correctly guessed 20 in the comments section two posts ago. Honorable mentions go to "Small Axe" and "Peeler" both of whom guessed 21. Great job by all three, and thanks to everyone else for participating.

I, mercifully, was spared the SOTU. But out of curiousity, did anyone get the 9/11 count?

Wendyo: I tried to keep count of 9/11 and I think it was 2 times.

I have been following a site now for almost 2 years and I have found it to be both reliable and profitable. They post daily and their stock trades have been beating
the indexes easily.

Take a look at Wallstreetwinnersonline.com
