We used to have a fine tradition of betting or futures trading on this list.
The idea was that people would be more careful and do better research if
actual money were at stake.

I will bet any amount of money up to one million dollars against this
prediction. I will sign any legal contract to enforce the wager. Does
anybody really believe this? Become a millionaire in 10 years if you are
