    I will pay a $1000 bonus to the winner if the world does end on 12/21/12. Oh, let's just make it $1 million to make it interesting - what the heck.

    It was tempting to guess 12221.20 but that wouldn't be scientific. The tea leaves say: (Drum roll please)...........................
    12242.73
    Tom, Can I take the 1 million in installments?

    20 minutes left to get your guess in or to change your current guess.

    Does anyone have time to move these into an excel file or in some kind of sorted file?

    If not, I will probably do it on Tuesday. I'll also start the 2013 contest.

    I'll do it Tom. But, a quick scan and I think it is you and Nnuut that are neck and neck. Couldn't find my pick - thought I put it in, but it would have been low anyway...

    Here it is...

    In the above comment my aging mind was thinking about the S&P500. Then, like our current crop of lawyers turned politicians attempting to turn a nice phrase, I missed everything by a factor of 10. Looks like RealMoneyIssues, DouglasL, and Handballer are the likely winners - but tumbling down the hill will open avenues for many others

    Thanks for doing this! Looks like MaSta is also right there if the Dow hits 13,000.
