According to the LiveScience.com story picked up by Yahoo!News, the website BetUS.com is taking bets as to who will win the Nobel Peace Prize. (LiveScience.com is a great website which I wholly recommend; BetUS.com is a subscription site I’ve never participated with.)
Al Gore is currently the favorite at 5:2.
Long shots paying at 100:1 right now include George W. Bush, Rush Limbaugh, and Tony Blair.
Other names you may have heard of which appear on the list:
Oprah Winfrey (50:1)
Martti Ahtisaari (former president of Finland, 5:1)
The winner will be announced on Friday.
You can also go to LiveScience to vote to rate the Greatest Modern Minds. If you choose to rate, you will get the current results for the previous as you move through the list….some of the results are very interesting. Also, I found the mix of ‘great modern minds’ in itself interesting. Enjoy!
NO recs for the pony party, please!
Without further ado, the floor is yours…
