This thread is for making silly bets with other members of the forum, with "official" rules and consequences of the like. It can be about anything to a reasonable degree depending on the type of bet. Examples: Poster 1: I bet I can go the longest without using the word "the" in my posts. Poster 2: I bet I can outlast you on that. Poster 1: I'll take you up on that. Loser has to change their signature to anything of the winner's choosing. Poster 2: It's a deal. Poster 3: I bet the new Fort Minor album will only be 13 tracks. Poster 4: I'll take you on that. Posting it in the Bets Thread. If you lose, every time you post on the forum for a month, you have to in some way mention how attractive Mike Shinoda is to you. Poster 3: Done. Now obviously, if you have prior knowledge on something (i.e. Betting on what happens in a Game of Thrones episode when you've already read the books), the bet will be invalidated. But all in all, I figured this would be a stupid way to have some fun. TL;DR 1. Make a wager. Can be an open offer or to a specific member. 2. Someone agrees to the wager. 3. The win/loss conditions and rewards/punishments must be agreed upon by both parties (or all parties if it involves multiple people) And to get us started off, a little inconsequential bet offer by me: I bet I can last the longest speaking only in song lyrics in the shoutbox (i.e. If I say something that isn't a song lyric, I lose).

GraveDigger388, Michele and Jesse say: Yes Filip and Minus say: No Loser has to write a (at least 16 bars) love poem to the winner and record themselves reading it out aloud. Fort Minor will still release an album this year. Xero21 agrees. minuteforce disagrees. Loser must record video of himself covering Welcome by Fort Minor and upload it to Youtube.
