Stakes and Formula
So, in a completely in character suggestion, Richard said we should make it interesting by having the loser have to face some tangible consequences (his suggestion being to eat a burger with buns of butter. personally, that sound delicious to me so I don't think that works, but whatever). Anyway, I'll have to give some thought to that and also to how to determine who wins and loses. Seems to me that just choosing whoever comes closest to the electoral college outcome isn't good because you could be way off on the states you pick and still luck into getting close to the right total number of electoral votes. Maybe the best way is to have it be a question of who picks the most states correctly, with electoral college vote predictions being the tiebreaker. Something else to think about. Thoughts on these things anyone?
