I'm quite sure it'll be that temperature somewhere in London, I think Imperial college in London are doing ultra-low temperature experiments, down to about 0.015K.

Jatopian, am I sensing some hostility about this contest? I'm a little confused.

18.5

And just for the record, June 1st lands on a Sunday this year, not a Thursday.

Ah, it's for May 1st. (Makes more sense as June 1st is a ways off.) Knowing that I think would have made an impact on people's guesses. Can we change them now that we know it's for May, not June? (I'm happy to leave mine -- it's not completely unlikely -- but others might want the option.)

Well, it looks like we have until the end of May to make our guesses, so I'm going to wait until at least May 2.
