Factoid Friday 3!

Factoid Friday 3!

Postby timbre4 » Fri Sep 05, 2014 5:59 am

It’s Factoid Friday! If you own or work in a shop, you probably had a few (or more) Mitchell Manuals on your shelves. That’s what this month’s Factoid question is all about: How much shelf space was needed to hold the full set of 1999 manuals? Go here for details and to make your guess: http://www.mitchell1.com/shopconnection/?p=10803 -- it’ll take you less than 2 minutes. If you’re correct, you could win a $25 Amazon gift card!

Tomorrow (9/12) is the final day to take a guess in our Factoid trivia game and enter to win a $25 Amazon gift card! Here's a hint for you: The *average* book in the ‘99 Mitchell Manual library was approximately 5 inches thick. Go here to read the question & enter your answer: http://ow.ly/B3Sls It’ll only take you a few minutes!

Looks like Tina wins just by participating. She could have said 6 miles for all we know, :lol:

According to the contest keeper "his guess of “about 40 feet” was the closest answer we received. The correct answer was 51 linear feet".

I think I guessed 146 fl. I thought your library was much larger. Hate it when I assume about the size of things. 8)
