Check out the super easy auction (where multiple people can win) for
my current weight loss bet of $600 (
If you’d like to be among the bidders, you can pay as little (even
less than $1) or as much as you want for the chance to win a
proportionate part of my $600 payout if I lose. If I win and lose the
weight, it’d simply be like you bought a lotto ticket and lost.

To bid on it, go here:

Let me know if you have any questions!

Details of the goal are at the “bidder” link above and in my official
Beeminder contract at
