John Edwards: Guilty in how many felony counts?
I agree Buckeye...
I cannot understand how the Govt. can prove such a thing.... , but i guess they can prove it to the satisfaction of
people on juries, who wish they had as much money as edwards has, and convince rich widows to bestow $ on him...

Will Muammar Gaddafi attend the opening ceremony of the London Olympic Games 2012?
Yes, but he will be dressed as David Cameron, or Prince Charles. It will be hard to tell except for the sunglasses he will be wearing, that will be a giveaway.

   kenneth1

His days are numbered. Where will Gaddafi end up?
Anyone, want to turn that last bit into a market? Will someone collect on the Gaddafi money?

I would do, it but have too much trouble...ken

His days are numbered. Where will Gaddafi end up?
What if, he flees the country, is captured alive, but then found dead?

And, at the same time, Elvis is there with him "singing about his blue swede shoes (sorry Henrik, i think i spelled the word wrong).
am quite sure, but i need to go back to grammar school, and they won't let me in..), which now Gaddafi has on?
The real question should be "who done it?" to collect the reward?

Quick: How harmful will hurricane Irene be in New York State?
i am from NYC originally, and I feel that the hurricane (being very large) will extend through a high tide, so the ocean water will push up the lower boroughs of Manhattan and Brooklyn (where i was born) , and could (will) cause extensive flooding, which is why the shut the subway system down... I do not know when this happened before, for a natural event...

I am in MD, (quite distant from the storm path) and the winds are moderate , but there are extensive rains from the rain bands...
I grew up as a kid in Queens, and a hurricane was a fun event! It blew a tree over a golf course fence, so all the kids could play on the golf course for free..., while we were otherwise kept off by a tall fence... It was a humongous tree, so took them weeks to fix the fence...

   kenneth1

His days are numbered. When will Gaddafi fall?
RE "timing of this question": @hfl, if timing wrong, setup a new question "with proper timing".. No offense..I just think it is not easy, until after the fact, to know what the "timing" should be... So, if you have a crystal ball, let us have a better timed question....

Maybe let the intelligence forces and the rebels know too, so they stop wasting their time fruitlessly...

What name will the first Hurricane category 4 and above have of the 2011 season?
My understanding is that, because of global warming, and I know a lot of people do not believe in it, generally (and it does not
pertain to each hurricane season, as other factors such as el Nino, play a role), hurricanes are getting stronger.... so i think it more likely will come sooner , rather than later..

La Nina means that there are less winds available to disrupt the cyclonic convection patterns...

Great Question Stijn!!

I like these personal questions, dealing with nature...
By the way, i added a note about my problems with connections and KtN;
No immediate hurry or anything . just on the site dealing with problems..
I had trouble today, owing (IMHO) too much traffic either mid Atlantic or on KtN
at a time related to the closing of some USA financial market questions. (2PM US time)...

Maybe just my problem.. or not..

Will the Debt Committee propose to raise taxes?
I am placing a token yes vote (as i think that is what democrats should do), to just at least in principle have all the cards on the table..
else why negotiate at all..., if there is nothing to negotiate about..

   kenneth1

When will the US Congress agree to raise the debt limit?
To me, these are debts that Congress has already agreed to. So, it is simply a question of paying their bill, as it is now due.
If they do not want to pay the bill, then it would be better not to agree to purchase the items in advance... (the wars,
spending more than the US takes in, etc. etc.)
I cannot understand the outrage against raising the debt ceiling, to pay for the items that are essentially already spent.
Maybe i do not understand it properly, or maybe the politicians are mis-characterizing the situation..

   kenneth1

I got into a slump, and dropped down into the blue....; bad, wild guesses...
I am hoping to get back out... I bet on the 6, but then pulled it, because i think by the end of the
month, unless i get bad luck i will be out... Still i might get some insurance..

What will happen to Happy Feet, New Zealand's wayward penguin?
Bernado, this is a case of, in my humble opinion, of insufficient spanning the space of the "logical world" so that all conditions are met..
I had a question YES, NO or OTHER (which meant some grey reason that was not either, yes or no, and i tried to explain to you , but it wasn't good enough...)... So, we just let the question fall by the wayside...

This question , i feel, suffers from the reverse problem; namely it doesn't span the logical space sufficiently. I can envision a situation, such as i think is occuring, where we haven't seen anything beyond what was reported... so an added response of a, b, c, or OTHER would help cater to that. even if people chose not to bet on it it would NOT HURT!!! so i am going to tag this question NOW..

I loved the question, since i lived down there, but feel bad, that it might end up being canned... rather than drag on ad infiinitum..

   kenneth1

What will happen to Happy Feet, New Zealand's wayward penguin?
dOESN;T Disney or someone have movies out for kids with penguins being positive and that emporia's (sp?) movie , march of the empora s (penguins)... so we are trained to like penguins.... but sharks are always the villains... , so we are just stupid..

   kenneth1

Will Russia veto a UN Security Council resolution condemning the Syrian government's actions against its people?

Will the US Congress give the President powers so he can
raise the debt ceiling for some period of time?

To me, in the mathematical world , there is Yes, and No, (not counting Godel's theorm) but in the real
world, there can be yes, or no (clearly one or the other), but then there can be other possibilities.
such that the above conditions are not met by the suspend date, for example....

Will any other European Union countries ban marmite this year?
My recollection about marmite (had it in NZ) is that it is like the old brewer's yeast they gave kids for their health, in the US..
I think it has lots of fishy type yeast.. B vitamins (and make sure you pronounce this properly)..

Will Amanda Knox's Murder Conviction Be Overturned?
I think this question illustrates how much the "thinking" of the public is controlled by the press coverage of that nation... I always think
of this, when events happen , like when the US had some plane flying over "international waters" shot at by the Chinese many years ago, and Americans all thought it terrible, and the Chinese all thought the plane had no reason to be there (so of course it should be shot at)..
If most of us were in one or the other country we would be swayed by all the brilliant arguments made on behalf of that motive..
So, unfortunately, i have bet against my best judgment in the question before us, as i genuinely think , the girl is innocent, but I fear that she will continue to languish in jail.. I may get cold feet and sell my shares later..

The Knew The News Mug Contest: How many players will reach +500% net worth during May?
Thanks kruijs,
That clears things up further...
In philosophy or logic (of mathematics), they had to invoke "no self referential statements". Bertrand Russell wrote, to avoid
all the myriad of confusions arising from things like do sets exist including themselves, etc.. and this seems like a very nice logical
way to avoid the problem of people saying, well if this had settled before that, then x, y and z would have happened, etc..
Thanks for clearing up so many issues

and you too charlesf.. And good luck on your quest for the 500%.. Ken

The Knew The News Mug Contest: How many players will reach +500% net worth during May?
I have a "general question" or questions, related to this. There are a number of questions that settle at the end of the month....
Now: 1) when is the end of month? (which time zone), and
2) it seems to me that it might make a difference, if someone is near 500%, in
what order these questions are settled..., for example, is this settled AFTER the others, or before.. as a person could win or lose some % money and go above 500% as a result , or having just surpassed it, could lose that money, and dip below...etc.. so the order, etc.. makes
a difference.. Answer to either 1 or 2 from authoritative source appreciated..Maybe 2 is pedantic, if so sorry.. thx, ken

cici, one needs to be careful, as "other" in some markets doesnt mean none of the above.. kruijs is careful to point this out,

Or we could simply get some advertisers, etc..

   kenneth1

By the way folks, I decided to do some self-advertising, the recent increase putting me ahead of gencha (sorry), was pure vanity.
I just wanted to put in a spike next to my name, didn't mean to leap ahead of you in this horse race.. I am sure it will be short-lived, as I go up and down like cici.. Next, i will ask you all for funds for a run against Obama for the democratic nomination!! (sorry no $K)..

   kenneth1

The Knew The News Mug Contest: Who will win?
Cici, I empathize (sp?) , but if you just regard it as a "learning experience", then even when you blow your hard earned $K , you

It surprises me a little... However, i think that despite the legalities, which to me, assuming that the above can be verified beyond someone's word, that this kind of thing happens ALL the time.. (not so blatant as the Illinois senator situation...), but nonetheless, this is called "political influence", and allows people to use their power all the time... GW Bush made 1000s of appointments based upon contributions to his campaign.. and he is not alone in this, republican and democrats; they all do it...


Yes, it is a form of corruption... but this is why people run so hard for office, as there are these "perks"...

Hi hfl13 ,

This question i thought should be settled shortly after suspend date...
If we know where he is (e.g IN POWER, In Libya, by a recent broadcast of his), then I think it should settle that he is there.
If not in power, and we don't know where he is, because he has fled, or died, and no one (e.g his sons) wants to let us know he has died, then unknown , dead, etc... (those were my thoughts when making it up)...

Nuclear Disaster Japan: Will fallout reach USA ?
Sorry Hendrik, I like your many questions.... But this one, I personally, am not fond of.. The main reason is that i think it is unanswerable as phrased, unless i were to say (yes, but it may not be provable).. In other words, there will always be some atom or likely particles that will travel (either in the winds ) or on people that will reach the US... But it likely might not be reported as "fallout" although that is what it would be... So, i am not sure such "fallout" will be reported as such, so as not to cause alarm...

Nevertheless, i will bet YES on it... just because i know this is right... When i am right under such conditions, i invariably get it "wrong", although i still think i am right...

Japan Earthquake: WORST CASE - will a reactor meltdown happen?
To me, this is typical of the type of questions, that make a real settlement invalid.... Not wanting to be critical, since I am not doing the work, it is true. Nevertheless, allow me
to state a position to people, (and I know kruijs works especially hard on this site, so pardon me please), that a question IMHO, would be best if it were to state when it would be deemed valid, and invalid (true or false say)... In other words , does it need a "complete meltdown" for it to be a meltdown, a meltdown sufficient to break the containment building (which has NOT happened) or what? It is true there were gas releases, but these were released by the staff to cool the reactor to prevent further material from melting . THe melting , as far as I know has been minimal.. So, does one need to have more meltdown than say 1%, or what? the question does not address what a meltdown consists of ... Does it need a stated report by a reputable Japanese newspaper or american paper that a "meltdown" has occurred? I do not know... the ? does not address these issues.. , i think , except for the generic settlement statement...
