In have not placed a wager on the papacy, I expect I will choose to avoid this scurrolous activity. However, I am nothing but amazed at the discrepancies that I am seeing regarding wagering on this current event.

One site is giving 50-1 on Batista-Re to secure the seat while another site is listing him at 3-1. I have never seen such a discrepancy in odds before.

In case your interested Ratzinger is going off at anywhere from 4-1 to even money. Arzine is 3-1 to 8-1. Hummes is a solid 8-1, Tettemaza is a steady 4-1. Maradiaga is about 10 or 12 to one.

Whatever the outcome, gambling is a terrible social sickness and it is up to the new Pope to save society from this evil... except me- I'm alive and doing fine.

BWAH!!!!!

Loved it!!!

Given that I abhor Catholic theology and almost everything that particular church stands for, I'd say several magnitudes of a BILLION to one.

I'm thinking they're not likely to elect an agnostic to the post. cool.gif

"If elected, I will not serve. If nominated, I will not run . . . "

hahahhahaha

Sandor's right tho, not many 'round these parts could get away w/ a line like that.
