Futt...I'm never picking you up at 7am, or any other time for that matter, if you continue to wear an a.net thong. And now that I know you were sitting in the passenger seat wearing that thing, I've gotta have the seat thoroughly disinfected and cleaned.
A contest is a great idea, though. But, I do not agree that it should simply be limited to the pictures that had the top hits for any given period of time. I, for one, tend to find pictures long after they were uploaded. If I see a totally cool picture 6 months after it was uploaded, but I thought it was worth being nominated for some prize, I wouldn't want to lose my ability to vote simply because it didn't make the hit count in its first 24/48 hours. Also, while 12,456 other people may find a picture interesting, I may find it totally boring and would prefer to vote for the picture that got 3 hits, including 1 hit from me. Hard to see how this kind of thing would be implemented, though.
