Betting on the news

Would you say it is a safe bet after the BP oil spill that the stock would fall this is called a put option i am told and that was a no brainer as is many other stories that hit the news. So this website called bet on news is much like a hedge fund that allows anyone with a nickel to join in on the action of betting on the news via the stock market.

A really great idea to allow anyone in the world to bet on the news and from what i tell is they only bet on the news the is a no brainer so instead of betting on every news story in the world that gets printed they only pick one or two a month to bet on. Or at least that is how i see it any ways what do you think of the concept of this website and would you join in for a nickel?

Silly Bandz craze

If your a parent of any type than you have no doubt by now heard of Silly Bandz for those pther people that do not have a clue as to what i am tlaking about I will clue you in a little and that is Silly Bandz are made of silicone and are shaped like various animals slash creatures and various boy girl themes for kids that they can wear on there wrists like charms of sorts.

Some moms use them as merit badges for kids doing the right thing they have been taught to do. Be careful though if you have a young child and always warn your kid regardless of age not to eat them because choking on them is possible. I give these new cheap toys for kids a 4 out of 5 stars for them being so cheap and able to keep kids happy for long periods of time.
