5:07:43 PM crucially@livejournal.com: betting site for betting on when couple you know are going to get divorced
5:07:45 PM crucially@livejournal.com: anonymous
5:07:51 PM crucially@livejournal.com: so friends can bet on people they know
5:07:52 PM crucially@livejournal.com: :D
5:08:18 PM erinearl@livejournal.com: generalize to couples
5:08:21 PM crucially@livejournal.com: 6 month, 1 year, 2 year, 5 year, 10 year
5:08:35 PM erinearl@livejournal.com: broader user-base that way :)
5:08:36 PM crucially@livejournal.com: well, it is harder to proove because there is no legal document
5:08:41 PM erinearl@livejournal.com: fair 'nuf
5:08:57 PM crucially@livejournal.com: so, you bet on the 5 year
5:09:05 PM crucially@livejournal.com: if they divorce before 5 years you get money
5:09:18 PM crucially@livejournal.com: but after 5 years you loose all the money you bet
5:11:56 PM erinearl@livejournal.com: :-P sounds like a good plan
5:11:58 PM erinearl@livejournal.com: just need a good name

generalize even more. "i think x will happen by y date" - then you can keep track of what's supposed to happen today, tomorrow, and what's already been missed. then you can see which users have the highest success rate at guessing things.

"Sorry file does not exist..." Possibly a bad link? ;)

But I'm fairly certain any press (especially AIM Today) would have a FIELD day with that.

3 weddings in 4 weeks and I am a divorcee, no wonder I am jaded! Not that I would bet on BradinA at all.

though unfortunately, I don't think you can profit from it.
