    The human population took a real beating in this episode. It started out with 39,643 people

    What will the head count be next episode?

    I heard LOTS of gun-fire. I'd say at least 150 died so my bet is 39,497

    Person with the closest guess gets 150 atta-boys!

    Then you have to think who will be put up against the bulkhead? I'd have to go with Gaeta & Zarek, Shark (and maybe Racetrack), Narcho, Selix, Gage (preferrably dragged in by the balls), just about every marine....

    My guess is 247 bringing the new total to 39396.

    As for the next episode's headcount as long as it has Zarek and Gaeta I'm good to go. I think Zarek is going to lose the quorum. They come across as a group that's not going to like the violent aspect of this mutiny. Just a hunch based on the looks they had when listening to Roslin's broadcast. After all, this is the quorum that put her back in charge after New Caprica and agreed to the alliance in the first place.

    My guess is around the 200 casaulties. Whatever the outcome is, the future looks grim for Galactica. It looks like just about every marine and pilot took part in the uprising, and those who didn't - well, lets hope they had the chance to fight back.

    There were mentions of resistance pockets in several places, but I wonder how many of them will survive...

    I wouldn't be surprised if they have to use the cylon ship to blow galactica to smithereens or if they jump away with the fleet ships that want to go with the legal president and the cylons thereby cutting the remaining population in about half. I believe there is a good reason to have Baltar. Use his "believers" to bring along more vessels to their side.

    Also Cottle will be grumpier than usual at the amount of people needing to be stitched up!

    As the old line goes, 1000 atta-boys will make you a well known, respected leader of men!

    One Aw-SH*T erases all atta-boys and you get to start all over again.

    I'm guessing the head count will go down by another 20 next week.
