Depends on two things: 1) Penalty for getting caught or having an accident and 2) Amount of assets you own.

For most people it's -EV unless you are very poor and/or if you will probably end up in jail eventually anyway.

Thank you.

As a follow up, I'm planning on leaving in early Feb, should I give the standard 2 weeks or longer? the reason I ask is that my boss is planning crap for me to do in Feb and i'm not going to be here.

Also, what are the chances they'll lay me off if I ask for it? so I can collect unemployment while I find another job obv.

Don't give more than 2 weeks. I've seen plenty of instances of people giving their notice and being told, "Thanks, but you don't need to come in tomorrow."

Yea it sucks to let him plan like you are going to be there, but that's how the game is played. Look at it this way, if you were on the January 20 layoff list, he would probably be doing the same things. Just remember that everyone is replaceable in the long run and don't lose any sleep over your decision.

HTJ has a good one. "Serve warm with milk" also works.

Hmmm, custom titles are more up Ryan's aisle (only reds can issue them) so even if we did prop bet I can't guarantee delivery and I would never enter into a bet that I couldn't pay. That being said, Klondike bar eating would be an interesting one to consider.

Let's take this a step at a time. First, do not eat much until game time as that will put you to sleep. (I'll recommend a location shortly). Drink two caffeinated beverages (coffee, coke products, monster) between now and 6PM. After 6PM, drink vodka Red Bulls until half time. eat a nice dinner with some protein in it [insert mayo joke here]. You should pass out about 30 minutes after the game is scheduled to end (this gives leeway in case there is overtime).

As for lunch, Taco Bell is never a bad idea. Just get 2/3 of what you would normally order.

I find it less time-consuming to just keep track of the times when you are good.

Probably because the cookie isn't allowed to say, "You are an overweight loser with slim prospects for a happy life." Much easier to say, "Those who eat too much dinner get their just desserts."
