Making it to six Superbowls and winning 4 would be more impressive than making it to four Superbowls and winning four.
False.

So, to clarify, you throw out shitty bets and hope morons (No offense Sean) take them.
I rarely bet against other people.  I usually give favorable terms to entice a bet because I am better at betting than most.

or just touching someone's butt against their will.

This could be very bad news for me...

A country that has one of the highest crime rates in the world, where a woman or girl is raped every 4 minutes. A country where no one is prosperous, except the corrupt power @ the top. A country that went from being one of the most advanced nations in the world to being just slightly better than the rest of the hell-hole nations in sub-Saharan Africa. Does that answer your question?

So you are saying you can go twice as long without being raped there than you can in the lovely USA...

Quote from: http://www.rainn.org/get-information/statistics/frequency-of-sexual-assault
Every 2 minutes, another American is sexually assaulted.

Here's the math. According to the U.S. Department of Justice's National Crime Victimization Survey --there is an average of 237,868 victims (age 12 or older) of rape and sexual assault each year.

There are 525,600 minutes in a non-leap year. That makes 31,536,000 seconds/year. So, 31,536,000 divided by 237,868 comes out to 1 sexual assault every 133 seconds, or about 1 every 2 minutes.

This may make no difference but I went ahead and submitted http://tfes.org to Google using their Webmaster Tools.

Like in the Superbowl. Where it will be snowing. And Tom Brady will get that fourth ring. And be the GOAT. Fuck Joe Montana.
Do you have any evidence that it will snow?  Also, Joe is 4-0 in Superbowls.  Something Tom will never, ever be able to claim.  He also won't win a 4th so it doesn't matter.


So you don't offer fair bets? Got it.
That is fairly accurate.  It isn't fair that I always win.

Why don't you go talk about how boring I am with your little girlfriends. >:|

I only have one girlfriend  >:(

And yes, I will talk about you behind your back since you refuse to come hang with the cool kids.

You guys are like a bunch of gossipy girls talking about people behind their backs.

If you ever showed up, you'd do the same.
I don't show up cause it's boring.
You're boring  >:(

Go Seahawks.  We better win it this season while all of our beasts are still on rookie contracts.
Hopefully they keep home field, otherwise, they'll choke on the road.

MBA?

like a macbook air...

Googling dell now ...
They have good support and I'd recommend them, at least the Latitude and XPS lines.  Highly configurable.

I think this is a good idea, maybe deserving of a separate thread.

I am thinking a charter member signup where the regs can get an e-mail.  Then, on a go-forward basis, noobs can earn theirs.

I'd suggest a Dell Latitude 3000 series, customize it yourself.

He'd be better off with a MBA and external drive depending on his gaming needs.

Still a little over two weeks out, but I have the only bid.  I'd be happy to host e-mail unless Parsifal would rather.

I will be setting up e-mail for tfes.org this weekend, and it'll be easier if I do the same for any other domains down the line. The reason I want to do it is that I want to change the e-mail address this forum sends from to something at tfes.org rather than my personal e-mail address, and thus want to manage the path of any return mail.
I am good with that.

I placed an initial bid of $60 for flatearthsociety.org.  I will keep an eye on it.
how is it going?

Also, just an aside ... if we get flatearthsociety.org that would make for some pretty good e-mail addresses.

Would the administration consider say a david.thork@flatearthsociety.org?

A really nice thing to be able to give regulars but also

press.officer@flatearthsociety.org is someone that syndicated news outlets would take interest in.

thinking ahead, but a good domain would be a real boon for the society.

Out of curiosity, his bet seemed to be based off exactly what you said, what is unfair about it?
The expected value of the gamble was below 0. EV(g)<0

Betting against me always has that value.  Ask Sean.

How can you say that VG is "stealing money" when the deposits are 100% refundable?

Because they can pile money into an interest-bearing account and profit off of something that won't ever see the light of day.  Even if they give the original deposit back.

Yes, because you didn't offer a fair bet.
Then admit you are wrong  >o<

I'm not a moron.
Debatable  :P

So Franklin claims the Patriots will win the Superbowl, however he isn't confident enough that they will even make it to bet $25.

Junker I'll take that, but since you said not to pay you and save my money last time, if you win I'll pay 100. Serious bets serious this time

Sounds good.  If Franklin wants in on the action, I am cutting it to $25 per bet.  Franklin is a pussy, though, so he won't.
