    Isn't it possible to lock in the bet based on the contingency, otherwise it is a no-contest? It has been done with other bets?

    It is. You can put something in with an option of a scenario where the bet becomes null. If they want to do that, they can.

    Just want to mention as a side note that there is also a lot of value in making somebody feel anxious and impatient for a year, as they wait for a chance to make a bet that they care about, but that you don't care about.

    No sir. That is the spirit of your mother talking. Forgive her from turning you away from your father.

    Also, we need @senri 's take on this.

    Mr. Lead is struggling to accept. His body is not secreting at the proper frequency.

    The intended cuntiness of your insults always lags way behind their nerdy awkwardness.

    There were no insults. Your anger is palpable, sir. Wishing pain upon others is a mark of Satan. Cast light upon the earth.

    @rj144 you need to add a stipulation to #5 that makes it 1 year or n posts, whichever takes longer to complete.

    @Lead
    With your permission, I would like to see this bet happen. We might need to firm up the language and we might need a judge, but I would ABSOLUTELY like to take this wager.

    As I am rolling on dubs, I just wanted to ask for your permission first.

    I am happy to take it too and yes we need a judge.

    The bet is who, in one post can best establish whether flat earth theory holds up or fails. We should limit that post to a certain amount of words but a decent amount.

    No, the bet is that you cant fly over Hawaii to Japan and then to Dubai and then back to the states... if I remember correctly.

    This bet literally comes down to "hey, @MikeMcMann, can you afford plane tickets that will come out to either $3000 and like 72 hours of layovers or $9000"

    It doesn't. You don't get it either.
