Another Bet

Posted by MasonW on January 26, 2010 , under | comments (0)

Since the 2010 bet fell through, me and my friend have decided to make another bet.

The first one to be able to do horizontal(side) splits will get to dress the other person any way they want for a full day at some super public event (like the state fair or elitch gardens).

The winner will get to choose the clothes as well as any sort of make up, hair dye, fake tattoos, accessories, etc and the loser will have to wear it all as long as they don't pose a threat of physical harm to the wearer.

The bet will last until a winner is confirmed.

A horizontal split is defined as when the legs are pointing in opposite directions right and left of the torso creating a 180 degree angle between them. Also the inner thigh of each leg must be able to touch the ground.

I've been wanting to do the splits for some time. Maybe this will motivate me to stretch every night.

I want to be able to do this:

And apparently anyone can do the splits:

Update: Making Bets on the New Year

Posted by MasonW on , under | comments (0)

So it's 2010 and the results are in from my bet with a friend on how the year 2010 will be referred to. See the original post. It turns out that we were both wrong.

2009 was referred to as "oh nine." For example "I graduate in oh nine"

Years before they were referred to as "Class of ninety eight" or "Class of oh four."

Now 2010 will now be called...twenty ten. Wtf? The years have always been referred to by the last two digits. Why is 2010 different? Probably because saying, "I'm from the class of ten" would sound incredibly dumb and confusing. So it's now referred to as "twenty ten." Lame. I guess that's what's going to happen to 2011, 2012, and so on.

But the question is, when will it change back to just referring to a year by the last two digits?

"I'm from the class of twenty one". No that still doesn't sound right. I guess we'll have to wait and see.

Who comes up with these rules?

Making Bets on the New Year

Posted by MasonW on November 01, 2009 , under | comments (1)

A friend and I were discussing whether the year 2010 will be referred to as "Oh Ten" or just "Ten."

I said just "Ten" because that's what makes technical sense even though it'll sound dumb and people could confuse it with the year 10 A.D. My friend thinks it'll be called "Oh Ten."

We made a bet on who's right and winner of the bet will get to throw a snowball at the loser's face as hard as they can from an arms length away. If the snowball is packed hard enough, that's almost the equivalent to being punched in the face.

Ooooo, I can't wait.

'Paranormal Activity' Movie Trailer = Awesome

Posted by MasonW on September 20, 2009 , under , | comments (0)

This movie trailer that I just saw looks pretty awesome. The idea of filming audience reactions is ingenious, though this might mean that there isn't enough movie to properly make a trailer of, but the Blair Witch style movie is refreshing and I'm totally looking forward to watching it. It's a limited release, but hopefully someone will post it on the internet. Otherwise I'll have to wait for the DVD to come out.
