The top of every forum thread contains a search box for that topic (not in the header, but above the first post on the page). The box will contain "Search this topic..."

Before making your prediction, search this thread ("topic") to be sure it's not already taken. Remember that the earliest posted entry takes precedence.
I just used the search box again (I did it before posting my guess) and had a brief moment of panic seeing someone with the same guess as me. But then I noticed the results were sorted newest to oldest, so I'm still the first one in with the number, whew.

Emotionless, prognostication free investing. Ignoring the noise and economists since 1979. Getting rich off of "smart people's" behavioral mistakes.

My predictions seem to float in the middle of the pack each year. Getting better, but always too low.

2371.1 is my prediction for 2017.

# of fish now in my aquarium x total dissolved solids of my drinking water (ppm) x number of times I washed my car in 2016 = 20 x 38 x 3 = 2280.00
