  1. Especially like the last paragraph - The bookie allowing the punters to set their own odds ](*,)

  2. It takes a special type of idiot to place a bet for the world ending
  3. Set their own odds on the world ending, huh?

  4. well the whole point of the hadron collider is to replicate the 'big bang' that created the universe, so betting that it'll reverse creation isn't that far a stretch
  5. Indeed, but how are they going to collect?

    Maybe Hornet could clarify, but I would have thought that all bets would be off if everyone is dead.
  6. perhaps that's the exact reason bookies are letting punters make their own odds, even at 1,000,000,000,000,000:1 odds and winning they'll never have to pay up
  7. Now take it to the next step.

    What does that tell you about the punters?
  8. oh i've known mankind are shtoopid for YEARS
    i keep saying there's no hope for this world and its inhabitants but those mean people with the pretty white jackets that let me hug myself keep looking at me when i do
  9. thats the point.
  10. No shit sherlock

    Jesus wept.
