    Finally getting to this one

    1. Democrats will retain a majority in the House in the 2020 general election
    2. @Fawlty - for, @Farmer Br0wn - against
    3. 11/3/2020
    4. Avatar bet
    5. 6 months
    6. The avatar cannot contain of obscene or sexual nature

    Do we want to clarify how independents qualify or we going straight party affiliation? There's only one currently in the house but just trying to cover all bases here.
    Also @Farmer Br0wn, can I get more detail on what you deem obscene? I have trouble getting bets honored and don't want this piece to cause a snag. @Fawlty, if you already have an idea, it may help to just pm me a heads up so this doesn't seem like an obstacle.

    Let me know about the one question and afterwards, I'll get approvals and get this official.

    My take is whatever appears on the ballot is the affiliation. If the Independent runs as the candidate for the party, that's where they score. If they run as an Independent but caucus with one of the parties, they don't score.

    That's easy to determine. @Farmer Br0wn, does that sound good?

    I only agreed to a one month avatar bet, not 6.

    In regards to independents, if they're registered independent, than they aren't Republican or Democrat. If you're not a member of a club, don't expect club privileges and such.

    Got it. Also, do you have more detail on what you would consider obscene? I don’t want that to cause issues when a winner isn’t decided.

    Bumping again

    1. Democrats will retain a majority in the House in the 2020 general election
    2. @Fawlty - for, @Farmer Br0wn - against
    3. 11/3/2020
    4. Avatar bet
    5. 1 month
    6a. A Democrat rep will be determined by if they ran on the Democratic parties ticket
    6b. The avatar cannot contain of obscene or sexual nature

    @Farmer Br0wn , I just want a little more guidance on what is obscene to get this finalized. That word can be fairly subjective and I don't want it causing problems once the bet is called.

    Cambridge dictionary says

    offensive, rude, or shocking, usually because of being too obviously related to sex or showing sex

    I think the only part posing a problem there would be the 'offensive' part, as anything else should be easy to spot, right?

    My proposal here would be that @Farmer Br0wn should be able to turn down any avatar but must publicly give a reason. (Same for the other party, of course)

    Like I said before, I really don't have a problem with avoiding anything obscene or sexual, in whatever way it could be reasonably defined.

    Let’s try this
    @Fawlty v @Farmer Br0wn
    1. Democrats will retain a majority in the House in the 2020 general election
    2. @Fawlty - for, @Farmer Br0wn - against
    3. 11/3/2020
    4. Avatar bet
    5. 1 month
    6a. A Democrat rep will be determined by if they ran on the Democratic party’s ticket
    6b. The avatar cannot contain obscene and/or sexual material. @irish_thug will make the determination if there’s a dispute


    If you both are good with this, just quote and give an okay to make it official. 6b is holding this up too much and assigning the determination to a third party makes the most sense. If thug determines the av to be obscene/ sexual, the winner just need to find a different av to give out. If he doesn’t think it’s obscene/sexual, the loser must accept the av or will be welching on the bet.

    We good?

    @HockeyBjj @PolishHeadlock2

    How confident are you feeling on your bet compared to the time you made it? Do you feel more or less likely to win at this point?

    I don’t think Tulsi goes 3rd party unless there’s some breaking news I missed. There’d be heavy rumors of her camp taking about it by now, not just some bitter but muh Russians talking heads filling time with empty conjecture

    Pretty confident with Biden in the lead and the fact that she's still in the primary with no chance of winning

    @PolishHeadlock2 let me know if you want to concede early or wait it out til general election. Tulsi in a gas mask (if you can find a shopper from one of the threads) for the two months seems fitting low impact av bet for you to wear for now if you’re interested.

    If she for some reasons flips and does go 3rd between now and the general then your conceding is moot and I lose.

    I'll concede. Send me the av
