So dunno why, but I was curious to see what the odds were that the world was going to end, sure enough a lot of places are taking bets.


With the World as yet not at an end as a result of the 'Large Hadron Collider' scientific experiment, bookmakers William Hill were breathing a sigh of relief ,and celebrating winning £119 from punters who took up their offer of placing bets that the world would cease to exist as a result of the experiment.

1,000,000 to 1 odds

So then I looked up the odds of winning the powerball which is 175,223,510 to 1,.

This next one is hilarious:



Year 2012 – Doomsday or not? Closing Date: Jan 01, 2012 01:00 GMT -4
Super Bowl XLVII to be brought forward to December 20th 2012 +4700
New planet in our INNER solar system officially discovered by NASA in 2012 +66500
White House to be moved to top of Mount Everest in 2012 +91000
Green Bay, Wisconsin to be named official South Pole by NASA in 2012 +191000
Definite proof of alien life on the moon presented by NASA on Dec 21st 2012 +200000
Mankind to be extinguished by Dec 31st 2012 +201100

So people have better odds witnessing the end of the world than they do winning the powerball

/facepalm

It's not going to be the end of the world.

It's going to be a new beginning.

Pretty interesting theories though.

If you bet that the world will end and it does, how will you be around to collect on the bet?

Just wondering.

The powerball odds are mathematically accurate, end of the world betting odds are not.

What kind of idiot would place a bet that they cannot possibly collect? Might as well just give money away.

You get that satisfaction of knowing you won....seconds before you snuff it?

Winning bets isn't just about the money, it's the thrill, lol.

Dunno, but did it generate free publicity for bettingpro? You "bet" it did.
