Silvia and me, we're into a weekend gambling routine. We find something to bet about, and we bet about it. (For example, this weekend it's the Academy Awards. Will the Austrians or the Poles get Foreign?) But we've taken it up a notch: we have to both be able to lose, and if we both lose, we put some money in a cup. Next week, if we both lose again, we put twice the money in, and so on. The cool thing is, if we go twenty weeks both losing, the money in the cup'll be over eight billion dollars!
