Gentleman's Bets

Bets with my friend Chris

This is a list of “Gentleman’s Bets” which I have undertaken with my friend Chris. We decide on our predicted outcomes for certain large-scale events, mainly political and/or scientific, and wager one or more cups of coffee.

The loser has to provide the victor with the designated number of cups of coffee at the end of the bet period.
