The Wisdom of the Crowd

Yesterday watched this BBC's video about how precise the average estimation made by a number of people can be. They call this 'phenomenon' The wisdom of the crowd. Is quite cool, isn't it?

I'd love to make a fast and simple experiment, and you can help me. 

Go to and ask a simple question: How many sticks do you estimate there are in the image?

When I get some hundreds of answers I'll post the result. Let's see how wise is the crowd! :)
