DylanCatlow - If Trump wins general vs. Bernie, I get $300. If Trump wins general vs. anyone else, I get $170. If Trump loses general, I pay Dylan $60.

http://imgur.com...

Cody_Franklin - If Trump wins the nom, I get $120. If Trump loses the nom, I pay Cody $100.

http://www.debate.org...

Random friend - $100 to me if Trump wins general, $100 out if he doesn't.

Misc: $49.01 loaded on PredictIt, waiting for the opportune moment to Bet on Thett (oops I mean Trump)

So, ignoring PredictIt, I can, if things go VERY badly, lose $260, and, if things go as planned (Trump winning vs. Hillary), win $390. I dig it.

And, to everyone I owe money to from the whole SAT thing, I'm gonna honour those bets soon enough. I was serious.

Of course, it would have been much more profitable to just invest in PredictIt contracts, but personal bets have the additional factor of being fun to win :)

I really wish that I could have gotten you to donate $30 to Habitat for Humanity.

And for the record, I made my bets prior to Trump's huge successes. I don't think I would have made the same bets if I had known how well he would end up doing.

You made the bets from January onwards; not exactly when Trump was a joke.

Did I do that because you wanted to invoke your right to pay me my money hundreds of years in the future? I faintly remember that being the case.

I don't care about whether an ideology is "necessary" or not,
I care about how to solve problems,
which is what everyone else should also care about.
