6. Is that the difference between ALL versus some.
I'm listening to Guy James since he has John Dean on later. Also, downloading Dean's book from iTunes. It's FINALLY there.

8. No it's the difference between raghead and ragpicker.
Edited on Thu Aug-10-06 02:23 PM by seriousstan
One is a derogatory term for Muslims, the other is another name for trash picking dumpster diver.

13. She said he said "raghead", they bet on that, he didn't say "raghead"
You can't agree to a bet and then change the parameters. The bet WAS the word, not the meaning.

All of my posts about this have been about THE BET! I bet all the time on silly things at work, the words used in the bet ARE THE BET.

Did you hear him say "raghead" on the MedisMAtters tape? NO

7. Larry King
Randi and Neal Boortz bet on LKL last night that he had called Arabs, ragheads. It's a 5000$ to AAR. I searched and searched and I couldn't find it either.

18. They say to pick your battles..
And you picked this one? Whatever floats your boat pal.

Nobody cares but you and a few other Randi haters on DU. Do you guys have a Randi haters anonymous clubhouse?

21. No, just a lack of respect for people who bet and then spin.
Perhaps Randi shouldn't bet.

Since she upsets you so much.

23. Doesn't upset me at all. I was simply calling the bet using the info
Randi gave. I don't have to follow her around like a dog, believing everything she says. After all, she is the one that tells us to "look it up yourself, all the links are on my website. I looked it up, she lost. Nothing upsetting about it. You are the one who can't handle the fact that she lost this bet and now is spinning like a leaf. She should have simply said, I misspoke. That would have been the upstanding thing to do when you are talking about a 5K bet.

26. You would be correct. I turned on XM and heard her. Now, I would like
to see Randi ask the guy to explain what he meant by ragpicker? Technically, you are correct.

27. Yeah, the OP. He/she is positively GLOATING at what he/she perceives...
...as Randi's loss.

28. You take that first post as GLOATING? Take a deep breath. Looks to me
like they were pointing out she made a bad bet.

29. Apparently you haven't read the other threads too.
You take a deep breath. And stuff your condescension.

31. I believe some folks have never made "man to man" bets.
So they don't understand that the wording of the bet is paramount. I have and when 5k was mentioned my mind and ears went into overdrive. I love to gamble on a handshake, especially when the issue is trivial but determinable.

32. Yes, you've been beating this dead horse for how many hours?...
But it's just about "the wording of the bet."

not to understand this.

17. I don't think she did a good job yesterday
Edited on Thu Aug-10-06 02:40 PM by RadiDem
She is great at extended stream-of-consiosness commentary, but I don't think her style works well for debates that require short concise answers.

20. She did fine, except for the bet. That was my only point.
As I said earlier, I take my gambling seriously. She blew it even after she backed away from her position that he called all Muslims ragheads and limited it only to Mohammad.

24. If you propose a bet you get the specifics right
I've made man-to-man bets for 20 years. I wouldn't dare argue this as a winner, unless I wanted to be tagged a desperate phony and forfeit all credibilty.

Like seriousstan says, gambling is a serious matter for those who do it. I've been burned on a few message boards, but not this one, with posters making man to man bets, then wimping out and not paying.
