Well out of out of 26 entries, I only guessed 12 correctly. How'd you do?

-------------------------

And here are the top five bluffs from the Round One vote.

coppro fooled 67.74% of voters with his statement, "I have been in Italy for less than 2 hours."

Pneh really did correspond with his idol, even though 65.52% thought he marched into a street-pole.

A monkey apparently did not damage VIPCOOL's dad's car, but 80.65% thought it did.

VIPCOOL really doesn't like chocolate or flies it turns out, but 64.52% believed he "swallowed a fly."

And despite what 77.42% thought, Syntax really did bluff a killer; but hey, he's only been to 14 -- not 18 -- countries. Wuss.

The final round of voting begins now and everyone starts fresh.

Rate each entry out of 10 and use the following criteria : the quality of the original statements – were they interesting, engaging and well-though out ; how well the supporting information improved the bluff ; how surprised you were by the revealed data ; and how well the participants responded to challenges. Browse through the
submission thread, to see how participants responded to questions.

Participants should give their own entries a 10 and vote fairly on the others.

Voting closes on April 22nd, at 13:00 GMT. The entry with the highest score wins. If there is a tie, we will have a vote-off round.

Good luck!

Not to sound bitter, but the distribution of votes allocated to myself does not quite fit the standard deviation linked in with unbiased agendas.

I hope everyone is voting purely on the value of the contest.

Much appreciated, smoke me a kipper and bobby is your aunty...
Jolly good show...

If it was a fair(ish) vote you´re refering to I would think it is a result of your very brief "what is true" statement. Give us more info! :D Was the suporting statement true?

I guess I should probably answer after the votes but hey... :)
Both supporting statements were true as were the actual statements apart from the number of countries visited, which I exaggerated by 2 or 3.

I was doing fine a few days ago when all of you thought I went camping, but later apparently about five or so of you all called my bluff. :)

(I'm going to try again this summer to ride the bike. It isn't going to be easy.)

I had to learn twice. First rode when I was about 4 in Denmark for a year or so, but had to relearn when I was 9.

That whole saying about never forgetting to ride a bike is not true. It's a good thing to grasp though, esp if you're isolated family wise...

I did actually enjoy modding my girl up for writing a post that I wrote.

That's fun irony :)

There's less than 12 hours left. If you click now, you can make a difference in the life of a forum member. It's in your power to do something... before it's too late.

Please vote... right now.

(Worked on one too many direct response shows... :P )
