Counting by Developer Pixie

June 21st, 2014 8:09 PM / Location: 42.211526,-122.7198

INSTRUCTIONS: Count or measure something that has never been counted or measured before. How many CDs can you label with one sharpie? How long does it take for all the ketchup to run out of the bottle? How many times does a trafic light change in an hour? How many licks does it taket to get to the center of a tootsie pop?

What do you wonder about? Find out and let us know.

I hope you are ready for SUPER GRUMPY TOOTSIE TIME

After doing this, I found out it had been done, however, they used different methods then me for determining the outcome. For his completion, look no further 

I too, figured I'd give the ages old tootsie/lick related question a go. However, I was interested more in the child's question "how many licks until you get to the tootsie roll center of the tootsie pop" That would take licks on more then just one side, and would involve leaving the tootsie part intact. I do believe that this is a properly distinct interpretation and thus is proper for the task in question. Also, I wanted my documentation to be pretty stellar. Unfortunatly, it did not record voice, so you have 30 minutes of me licking and trying to talk incoherently to a camera which does not care. If I can get the files to make noise, I'll post a comment with an update but I am not doing it again. 

For those too sane to watch the video, I give you my answer with aching jaw and stinging tongue.

1660 - The point where the sides and top of the tootsie are exposed. This is reaching the center by any normal standards.

1159 before you can get a good chuck of the center showing.

Hope you enjoy. I'm off to get tongue therapy and jaw surgery. 

- smaller



I hope you are all ready

Also, impressed you watched all of it and bothered to count. Unless you are just messing with me...
