Please Help Us: Pick A Number

We're conducting another experiment, and once again we need your help.

This is a guessing game. To play, pick a number between 0 and 100. The goal is to pick the number that's closest to half the average of all guesses.

So, for example, if the average of all guesses were 80, the winning number would be 40.

The game will close at 11:59 p.m. Eastern time on Monday, October 10. We'll announce the winner — and explain why we're doing this — on Tuesday, October 11.
