    Betfair dropping from 1.07 to 1.05 but soooo slowly. I feel like the market has been hypersensitive to all Trump good news and comatose to any Biden good news all the way through.

      But not i'm kinda looking at NC and wondering if it's possible.
      I think NC would be a big stretch if the number of remaining votes is accurate.

        Fox WH correspondent now clearly talking about Trump's 'unfounded claims'.

        Basically giving the same message as CNN now.

            Another Fox correspondent: "the Presidents baseless claims".

            Solksjaer, it is time for you to proclaim the three magic words.

              Jesus, Fox literally sound like CNN. Without the righteousness.

                I messaged my old boss for some clarification on how and when it will be settled, his response:

                  I think you meant to say proved not disproved there. But irrelevant, they could call it now and that wouldn't actually confirm what you claimed .
                  You said it was black and white, 100% on the networks only. We've already established that is incorrect based on the betfair page you linked.
                  They clearly said that they will hold off for legal challenges , recounts and the like. The fact they even published that page to begin with is precisely for a delayed payout.

                  But Trump at this point, Trump needs to attack the result of 3 results. Which I think it too much to be credible.

                    A HUGE congratulations to the USA. MY LAST TIME TO SAY IT.

                    TRUMP IS TOASTED. THANK YOU AND GOOD NIGHT

                      I thought so when doing the math yesterday. But it seems to have shift upwards.
                      5.4m currently. 94% reported. 75k behind.
                      6% remaining would be 325k. He'd need 200k of that, or just over 61%

                            for some reason I had a number of 117k in my head for remaining ballots but your maths makes way more sense

                            GOP 1/10 though, so I think my stretch comment is probably accurate.

                                      Purely from the point of view of Electoral College votes, if Biden was to take NC along with everything else except Alaska, would that be deemed a landslide victory?

                                        Not a landslide. Not even a blowout.

                                          It's quite the reversal in terms of electoral college though

                                              Yeah I googled it after asking not thinking it had it's own wiki page but of course it does.

                                                                You claimed that it says something in the rules that it doesn't say and mixing up the two votes. Whether they pay out sooner or later at their discretion doesn't change that.
                                                                You seem to misconstruing what I said, or for what ever reason. I haven't said when they will pay out. I asked a question about market rules. And I agree with Murdum that it's ambiguous - prehaps intentionally so.

                                                                        Arizona - Auto recount triggered if margin is 0.1% or lower but a recount can't be requested so that's effectively done.

                                                                        Georgia - No auto recount and recount only available if margin is less than 0.5% so that's on the table.

                                                                        Nevada - No auto recount and provided requester pays then a recount can be requested irrespective of margin

                                                                        North Carolina - Auto recount if substantial discrepancy of random sample and requested recount if total is <10k or 0.5% margin

                                                                        Pennsylvania - Auto recount at 0.5% and no margin required to request recount
                                                                        PA will be > 2% when all the counting is done
                                                                        "We are not Europeans. Those people on the continent are freaks."

Lots of 4 and some 5 place options available. Fast ground is key, going around a bend is no issue, draw perfect.

My uncle is in the syndicate that owns Lansing. He's away and no access to punting. Asked me to back it for him. Seen skybet were joint best price earlier at 13/2 and an extra place so bet there.

                                                                                                                I seen this pig of a horse two nights ago and and couple of times before and it prefers getting stuck in the stalls usually, rather than racing so I wanted no piece.

                                                                                                                Anyway he just text me saying it finished 2nd at 28s but after noticing that it only paid out at 13/2 I see that skybet are not giving best odds guaranteed on races with an extra place these days. Is that the norm or the standard now? Sick stuff.

                                                                                                                  I think the first comedy I watched myself as a standalone thing just for me was Butterflies which ran from 1979-1983 ('d have been around 10-12 years old).

                                                                                                                  I recall the melancholy, adult themes and suppose I was fascinated as I transitioned into a teenager that there was this complex, middle class world of comfort and deceit where people had inner voices and didn't always do the obviously right thing. With a particularly focus on an unfulfilled woman (hey women and feelings too!) and a completely un self-aware, mush of a man.

                                                                                                                  One of my coming of age comedies I suppose now that I think about it, I was starting to figure out how different this world was to mine.

                                                                                                                  Here's a nice picture retrospective for Geoffrey Palmer. So far removed from my world yet so very relatable.
