    This thread is for making silly bets with other members of the forum, with "official" rules and consequences of the like. It can be about anything to a reasonable degree depending on the type of bet.

    Examples:

    Poster 1: I bet I can go the longest without using the word "the" in my posts.
    Poster 2: I bet I can outlast you on that.
    Poster 1: I'll take you up on that. Loser has to change their signature to anything of the winner's choosing.
    Poster 2: It's a deal.

    Poster 3: I bet the new Fort Minor album will only be 13 tracks.
    Poster 4: I'll take you on that. Posting it in the Bets Thread. If you lose, every time you post on the forum for a month, you have to in some way mention how attractive Mike Shinoda is to you.
    Poster 3: Done.

    Now obviously, if you have prior knowledge on something (i.e. Betting on what happens in a Game of Thrones episode when you've already read the books), the bet will be invalidated. But all in all, I figured this would be a stupid way to have some fun.

    TL;DR
    1. Make a wager. Can be an open offer or to a specific member.
    2. Someone agrees to the wager.
    3. The win/loss conditions and rewards/punishments must be agreed upon by both parties (or all parties if it involves multiple people)

    And to get us started off, a little inconsequential bet offer by me:

    I bet I can last the longest speaking only in song lyrics in the shoutbox (i.e. If I say something that isn't a song lyric, I lose).

    Any takers?


    CURRENT BETS IN PLAY:

    Will a new Linkin Park album come out in 2016?
    GraveDigger388, Michele and Jesse say: Yes
    Filip and Minus say: No
    Loser has to write a (at least 16 bars) love poem to the winner and record themselves reading it out aloud.

    Fort Minor will still release an album this year.
    Xero21 agrees.
    minuteforce disagrees.
    Loser must record video of himself covering Welcome by Fort Minor and upload it to Youtube.

    I bet the first new Fort Minor track we hear this year will have no guest vocals. Not counting guests hitting the stage for live performances, nor counting any Fort Minor backing singers in a live setting.

    A second person has to take me up on it, and I haven't determined a wager yet. I think that asking for money would be going too far here ...

    Are you meaning just Mike? Are Ryu and Tak considered guest vocals?

    If you're meaning the first new track is just Mike, I'll take you up on that bet.

    You ... will perform a cover of the song (acappella if necessary) in front of a camera and show us the resulting video.

    We settled on this in the shoutbox. GraveDigger69 already asked for help with writing it so I'm guessing he's accepted defeat already. :kappa:
