I typically don’t gamble, but sometimes there is a rare opportunity where it's fun to just throw out some money just in case. My buddy Dan and I love these situations. For instance, when reading the odds for the NCAA basketball tournament, I may announce that SW Nevada A&M is 67,000,000,000:1 to win the whole thing.
His response? “I’d put a buck on 'em.”
Maybe it's exciting because of the chance to win $67 billion. But maybe it's the fun of rooting for the impossible, the pride of “calling it” when no one else saw it coming—and yeah, the chance for a little payday doesn’t hurt.
I give you five preposterous scenarios. You choose which one is going to bring home the bacon.
