A Place to Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is

For those of you with a little extra cash to burn, I’ve found a website where you can put money down on propositions like this one

By the year 2150, over 50% of schools in the USA or Western Europe will require classes in defending against robot attacks.


The money is for real, though it’s not really a bet; it all goes to charity

The bet money, treated as a donation to the The Long Now Foundation, must be paid at the time the Bet is made, and is tax-deductible immediately. The entire amount goes into a long-term investment portfolio called the Farsight Fund — its assets are in “Endowments”, a mutual fund managed by Capital Research and Management Company.
So how about it — are you willing to bet against a prediction like…
By 2050 most geologists will agree that most of earth’s oil and gas reserves were not produced by decaying plants.

Why? I already have the book! “How To Survive a Robot Uprising: Tips on Defending Yourself Against the Coming Rebellion” by Daniel Wilson available wherever books are sold!
And don’t forget to pick up “Zombie Survival Guide” by Max Brooks. The same rules apply for dealing with socialists.

It’s the decayed remains of space aliens.
