Default guess the weight... win a prize...Contest ends June 1st

Been a while since a contest popped up.

Rules are simple.

1 guess a day. 1st person within 0.5g of the total weight is the winner.
The prize is $5 to your Paypal. If you have purchased something from a sponsor in the last 12 months or your feedback rating is 100% the prize is $10 instead of $5.

The contest is open to everyone.

edit: all guesses should be in grams.

I couldn't resist! Watch enough tv or movies and you'll believe the experts can pull something out of nothing, so I thought why not?
