There is no such word as "guesstimate."


Ah mrbowie if only that was true :cry:

From wikipedia:

Guesstimate is an informal English contraction of guess and estimate, first used by American statisticians in 1934 or 1935. It is defined as an estimate made without using adequate or complete information, or, more strongly, as an estimate arrived at by guesswork or conjecture.

I'll tell you where all of the great long jumpers are--they are playing football.

that is not what I see, I see football players becoming more specialized, thicker, stronger , quicker but not ideal long jumpers , maybe, the nfl wr corp has a few and the nba a few more ...
