Thanks Fred. I must admit, I was secretly dreaming of winning a 1oz Gold bullion coin with the iTulip logo on it, but I'll settle for a special title :D

Given my main interest in life is actually spirituality, and economics being only a fairly recent interest, the most appropriate title I could think of is...

-------------------------->The Alchemist<----------------------

While the average person today associates Alchemy (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alchemy) to be about archaic chemists who dreamed of transmuting base metals into gold, the true goal of the alchemists was actually to create the philosopher's stone which once consumed would transmute one's soul from that of a base being to that of a gold (Enlightened) being.

The economic link here is that I'm also trying hard to transmute all my soon to be worthless fiat currency into gold bullion. ;-)

Thanks in advance, and I guess I'll be updating my profile picture to match the new cool title!

Adeptus, The Alchemist! :D

Vista is a Suburb of San Diego. So can I get the coin then because of my proximity to the 10 millionth reader? I think I'm the one that should collect it because proximity to the 10 millionth is worth more than all the guesses. Also I happened to be guessing that it was gonna be right around 8.00 pm. What a trip to find out I was almost exactly right! :rolleyes: (or else, if you are not going for that explanation, how much you want for the coin? Can I pay with paypal? ) :)
