Molon lobe-- "Vinny, I'm breaking this ID out of retirement to grant the contrition you have earned. I was wrong about the war-timing. While the war is starting a bit later than you thought it would, you would have won our bet. Pity you couldn't accept Niederhoffer, Baron, or Metooxx as escrow, you'd be 10K richer. (Assuming you really had 10K to wager.)" Molon is a gentleman, and his ackowledgment stops me from my cry I would have started in a week or so. The cry of "where's my $10,000???!!!"
