Apologies for disappearing. Went to India last minute which threw everything offboard as I prepared to go. Went to Aurangabad, a small but rapidly growing town known for the Ajanta Ellora Caves , it’s where I went to school. Anyway, more on that later, this post is to announce the winners of the Superfreakonomics competition.
I received 11 comments and 3 emails. It’s always interesting to see how people respond to such open ended competition questions; you often find that responses are not what you expected – but that’s what makes it interesting I suppose. Anyway, my two winners are:
1) Sean McLachlan: Because he wrote a simple and funny limerick as a response. Certainly one of the most unique answers.
2) Kedar: Because he put enough effort to come up with a freaky question, logic of which was so freakishly random that only he can make sense of — which is pretty much like all the questions the Freakonomics guys pose.
So voila! Congrats Sean and Kedar. Please email me your postal addresses so I can get the publishers to mail the books over to you. As for the rest, thanks for participating anyway!
