I put 3 on Italy to win the World Cup at Football (Soccer). Price 7-1

They won and I collected 21. The dumb meter kicks in because I laid the bet 4 years earlier. The intention was to put 3 a week on them to the next world cup. Well I only managed the one bet so had to wait 4 years to collect & by the time it started I could have got 9-1


I put 1 on Michael Jacksons nose to fall off by the end of the year. Price 500-1

Surprisingly enough, that was a losing bet, or so they told me. Maybe I should post a "pitch a bitch". Im still unsure if I actually lose that bet.

I don't usually do those bets though I did win $5 on a $1 be that OJ would go free. If the glove don't fit..

On the casino side, I can't tell you how many times I hit 'bet max' by mistake, although sometimes it's paid off. Other times you can hear me grrrrrrrr. Funny how the bet max button is right-next-to-closely-by the 'spin' button. :rolleyes:

If by "dumb" you mean "weird" ...

Here is a weird wager I made recently.

I go to see my opthamologist every 3 months. One of the standard things they do is to measure what is called the "Intraocular pressure," which is normally in the range of 10 to 20 for each eye.

I gave the nurse a line of 16-14 on my two eye's intraocular pressure, and let her take an over or under. She took the over. My eyes had pressures of 16-17 so she won.

When will I ever learn?

Well

My weight doesnt really show that Im actually a healthy eater and regularly work out so when I went to my dr for my regular blood work I told him hes gonna get a surprise when he sees my HDL (whole cholestral reading). I said " I bet its under 170" (your safe at under 200). He said "there is no way your gonna show that low of a reading" When will people learn that skinny doesnt mean healthy!

Anyway, I bet him $10 that it would be lower than 170. He shook my hand and said "this is gonna be easy money, your betting a dr" It was 163:D
He called and apologized, Im still waiting for my money!

My Dummest Bets:

I put $100 on Liu Xiang to win the Men's 110m Hurdles at Olympic 2008 when the odds is 1.8

And the odds is 2.1 now.
