Doing a raffle at work where we have to guess how many are in a jar. Sad old me wants to find out the weight of one so I can calculate how many are in the jar.

Inaccuracy.

The more you have the more accurate you're likely to be.

Be willing to surrender what you are for what you could become

Weighing lots and dividing by the number of eggs is far more accurate
