    That's why I'm offering the choice of my opponent taking either the over or the under- I'm betting exactly 1 indictment. I also tweaked the terms a lil.

    I'll do a 3 month sig with you. I'll take the over. I don't bet my AV.

    Cool, sig is good with me.

    The av is still up for grabs if anybody else wants some.

    @Fawlty , can we clarify the word "indict". Is this someone pressing a charge and/or just someone formally accusing them of it?

    That formatting doesn't work very well for an over/under bet. There is a stipulation that if zero are indicted, we each get the other's sig for 1 month.

    We should also negotiate what crimes count toward the bet. As worded, it's any charge for any crime. @HomerThompson may not be down for that. But an indictment means a criminal charge is filed, imo.

    Where did that stipulation occur? I thought you were asking for over/under meaning they pick and you get the opposite, not just the number 1?

    It's in the post, I probably edited it after you saw it initially (I didnt' word it correctly). I didn't mean for this to be a clusterfuck lol. I need to start over...

    The way over/under bets usually work is that one person sets the line, and the other person chooses and either wins or loses the bet. But I'm actually betting on exactly 1 indictment. It's a little odd.

    Bet thread? Why would you go there? Isn't that for people that actually make bets and not search for loopholes to find their way out of them?

    (Sorry. Had to bust your balls there for old times sake)

    I mean, that's perfectly fine to do as well. I just assumed @HomerThompson thought you were getting the complete under. He should clarify if this matter to him. If he does want you as just one, you could even bring in a third person for the 0. Someone did this for the electon margins I belief or we just had a tie if it was an option neither picked.

    Yeah it's all upside for his side of the bet, so I'm sure he won't have an issue with that. We'll wait though. He may want a three way bet, that's cool too.

    Either way, it can still work here. Like you said though, you guys should clarify the premise just so we don't have issues when it's decided.

    Formal criminal indictments is a fine standard for me. 2 or more and that sig is mine, bruh.

    So it's what @Fawlty thought too and formal criminal indictments. Was there specific charges you two needed to clarify or was this enough to repost the offer again?
