First person to guess correctly wins a copy of Split Decision. Or the jelly beans. Your call.

The magic number has not been guessed yet. Keep trying! I know you can do this.

Still no winner! Though I will say the number of comments right now (328) is higher than the number of jelly beans.

This is going to go on forever.

Update: Weeks later

Ora wins! There were 231 jelly beans in the jar. Ora, I will be in touch. If you choose the candy option, I will have to go buy you 231 new ones, as these have been eaten.
