What\'s the dumbest bet you\'ve ever made?
 
Like the title says, what is the stupidest thing you have ever bet on?

Mine, was betting on my friend's SAT Math score. The over/under was 670 and the bastard got a 690. Yours?

Me and my friend bet on every heat of a pro surfing contest. Each of us chose 2 of the 4 surfers and then added up their heat scores.

I won $5 dollars from my brother the other night betting on the outcome of that night's episode of The OC. That was pretty silly.

Playing spades with asofel as my partner.

Me: "$20 says you'll pick up the next 4 tricks"
asofel: "Dude, I can see my cards, there's no way I can do that"
Me: "Sure you can. Take the bet"
asofel: "Uhh... ok"

Loses next trick.

When Bill Goldberg was on his undefeated streak, a friend bet me that Diamond Dallas Page would beat him. Free money is good.

A buddy of mine and his GF had been on and off for about 3 months now. They would break up and get back together regularly. This led to me putting and over/under on how long they would stay together this time around. It really got of hand and I had to buy a blackboard to keep track of the bets. On about the 5th time of this the under was coming in to much so I made the over/under on the 6th and final time a mere 12 hours. Needless to say all the money came in on the over, so I [censored] his GF and told him about 8 hours later so he broke up with her and I made a killing. He then found out about the bet and was pissed up until I bought an eight to smoke with him. She was a whore anyways.

I almost bet skipper bob that I was going to finish
exactly 4th tonight in trout.
I am really good at 4th.
but I wanted odds......
would have been dumb.

I once bet my son(13) $20 Canadian, (we were in Montreal),he couldn't eat a mouthful of blue cheese. We were at some sort of welcoming/happy hour hotel thing.
the resulting vomit made it pretty dumb....

pfft, standard. My friend is terrible at betting on himself not hooking up with his exgirlfriend.

Coin-flipping, whether I can phase my hand through a wall (I said yes getting 10000:1), the WNBA All-STar Game(East), the Pro Bowl(AFC), timeframe for a cure for AIDS(I give 10:1 and get the over on 10 years), the definition of temerity (I got it right). Whichever of these you thing is stupidest is the stupidest bet I've made (that I can think of anyway).
