Subject: my $600 weight loss bet, wanna a piece of it?
Check out the super easy auction (where multiple people can win) for
my current weight loss bet of $600 (http://beeminder.com/mo/weight).
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: http://kibotzer.com/bidder
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 http://padm.us/mominder
