  3. The astronaut is wearing a Star Trek communicator on his right breast

  4. The astronaut is wearing an iPod Classic on his right sleeve

    Brian. One suggestion if I may. Keep the comments hidden until the final reveal. Easy to spot things someone elze has mentioned.

    @Konstantin – I’ve always been hesitant to do that because I didn’t want to maintain an e-mail queue for blog posts. But now that you mention it, something has occurred to me: if I can mark these posts for comment moderation, I’ll do that. Then, they’ll sit in the moderation queue until the “reveal” date, when I can publish them all simultaneously.

    Let me check it out…

    My choices seem to be either a) set the whole blog to put comments in the moderation queue, or b) allow comments to flow freely. There is no way to hide comments on a single blog post.

    The only other thing I can think of is to turn comments off on these posts, and require everyone to e-mail me their guesses (maybe to a separate e-mail address?) I see two problems with this approach: first, I’ll forget to post them – I just know I will. And second, I think people will not bother playing if it’s not as easy as just posting a comment.

    Let me know if you think of something I’m missing. Otherwise, it’s an “open book” exam. Best I can do is suggest you don’t scroll down to the comments until you’re done guessing and then see how you did. Obviously, it opens up the contest to “cheating,” but heck – given the prize money involved ($0), those who cheat are only cheating themselves.

    I was just curious if it’s at all possible :) We will be honest, for the most part. Unless there is something awesome on the line.
