Whoops, sorry mate. Been quite a bit since I've been here! I've got to re-acclimate to the rules.

I'll take your bet, but only if you bet $5 that Star Trek VI is not some kind of Cold War allegory featuring the Klingons instead of Russians.

Well... normally bets are fun only before you know the outcome.

Instead of betting money (which you KNOW you're not gonna honor and pay up), you all should bet something like the "BBS-free" card. That means whoever loses the bet gets to take a beating in at least one argument on a thread.

I'll bet any number of quatloos that LoB isn't in danger of not paying up money he'd owe, and he's not in danger of not making the same point that WarpFactorZ made, in a witty and amusing manner, to boot.
