Bet #15. Anderson Silva will beat Chris Wiedman at UFC 168

Mike: Anderson Silva beats Weidman
David: Weidman beats Anderson Silva

BET: Dark carbonated beverage of the winner's choice

RESULT: Anderson Silva's leg lost to Weidman's knee.

That leg kick checking move with the knee is called "The Devastator". It was the third time he had checked that type of kick in this fight like that. Usually it hurts the other guy and he just lays off the kicks but because Anderson Silva throws with everything and the kitchen sink in it it must have been like hitting a tree. Weidman was winning the fight (he handily won the first round) and would have most likely grounded and pounded his way to victory in any case. I like this ending just fine though (I hope Anderson recovers). Not enough people check leg kicks like that and this just shows that it can be done. 

#14 Kiss will make it into the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame before Nirvanna

Mike: Kiss will be in before Nirvanna
DaveC: Nirvanna will make it in before kiss

Bet: uhh?

Result: Both made it in, bet negated

Bet # 13 - New photocopiers have tech in them to prevent the copying of money for the purpose of conterfeiting


Jerry says yes and Mike says no for some type of dark carbonated beverage.


The tech exists on our fancy new HP Enterprise 700 MFP M775z. Freaky!

When you use a new $20 or older $10 the thing spits out a sheet that says:

(I slid it under the successful photocopy test below)

HOWEVER, Jerry found out that if you clip the edge of the bill in the image tray, you can trick the tech into copying the remaining portion of the bill.
