Bush/Kerry - who wants a beer bet on the winner?..

...At stake for me is a "seamail" can to you of my favourite "export gold" (- New Zealand's "localfamouus" premium lager beer.
You pick your winner (Kerry or Bush) - your man wins- I lose,your man loses - I win.
Your stake is a can of your favourite beer - "sea mailed" to me if you pick the loser. [:)]
Post your pick here on this thread - and confirm by email to me at :shrimpton@paradise.net.nz
Who's in for some fun?

I heard the other day that 20 - 25% of Americans are using mail-in (absentee) ballots this year and it will probably take weeks to hand-count them all. What a fright...

Dear lord... how expensive is it to ship a can of beer from the US to NZ? I'm not sure it's worth that much to me :)

Perhaps you should just post your debit card number. Don't forget the pin.

I tried this earlier and got no takers, after all the liberal rhetoric, nobody willing to put up cash or even liquid refreshment. Contrast this to my ferrari owners website, I have about 5k in cash and about another 1k of foodstuffs on the line.

I'm with B here - as a matter of fact - I voted Friday and have been drinking every since[;)].

It was kinda funny this afternoon. In talking with my youngest son (11) I told him that I had already voted and he asked me did I vote liberal[:D][8D].
