Ja well, life is a gamble. I have long been following PredictIt. I am a flaming atheist, but I admit to struggling mightily to shake the old Methodist roots: gamblers and all other sinners you know. My neighbors play the lottery when it gets big, but I have never been able to overpower the shame and embarrassment of buying a ticket, even when the theoretical after tax mathematical expectation of a ticket exceeds a dollar.
Deal: if I lose I will not whine, if I win I will not crow or boast.
Regarding your previous wager, I commend you on not whining over it. Life is a gamble. I ride motorcycles and occasionally even eat white bread.
