    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    I think it's quite likely that Illinois will give its Electoral College votes to Senator Obama.

    Because I think that's so likely, I'm prepared to offer odds of 100 to 1 against Senator McCain getting those votes, but that bet's on the other list.

    This isn't a voting thread, it's a betting thread. I'm taking bets on which candidate will win which state.

    Then we both think the same thing. What should the bet between us be?

    But we both agree it's very likely that Senator Obama will win Illinois. He already has a history of winning it as a Senator.

    I'm so confident that Senator Obama will win Illinois that I'm already offering to pay out 10,000 casino dollars if he loses there, to anyone who will pay me 100 casino dollars if I'm right and he wins Illinois.

    I'll offer you a special bet if you like - I'll pay you 100,000 casino dollars if Senator Obama wins Texas, if you'll pay me 100 casino dollars if he loses Texas. That's odds of a thousand to one which is overconfidence in a bookmaker on something so uncertain as a landslide election.

    see I have no idea how he did in Texas, I was beting he would win in Illinois because that's his second home.

    thing is to, if we are betting together for Obama in Illionis to win, ours is a win win situation right?

    will have to study up some more

    off to bed, we shall continue tomorrow.
