Surest bet you ever made

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Another thread got me to thinking about some bets I've made where I couldn't lose.

My top three:

(1) A guy bet me $100 that Iran had more people than the U.S.

(2) Same guy bet me $100 that no defensive end in the NFL weighed more than 200 lbs.

(I sure miss working with that guy). a2_wink.gif

(3) Different guy bet me $10 before an NFL season that the Pittsburg Steelers would play the Oakland Raiders in the Super Bowl.

(When he paid off the bet he still didn't realize they couldn't play each other in the Super Bowl).

Anybody else know people that have more money than sense?

one guy told me the entire U.S. was going on the daylight savings.

I told him no.  Arizona (I know this because I travel for business and have to visit Arizona every month or two.), Hawaii and parts of Ohio do not go on daylight savings time. (I thought I heard parts of Iowa also didn't, but I am not sure about that one)

 

After arguing back and forth for a few minutes, he bet me $20 that I was wrong.

After he googled it on his smartphone, I didn't have the heart to take his money.:roll:

I work with a girl that I bet about another employee signing for a promotion.   I stated that he would, she denied it would happen.   She convinced him without me knowing it, that the new job was a bad idea.   I lost the bet because she stacked the deck!  You would have thought I'd have learned since she did the same to me a few years ago.   Luckily, the bet was cheap.
