    Oddly enough, $10,000 to a journalist is probably pretty big money; $1000 to Doyle is pocket change and more than worth it to make a point. What a bizarre article to write in the first place. :stunned:

    statistically, what are the real chances a 75 year old of similar health, race, nationality, and wealth will die per year?

    People do it every day. Its called life insurance. You bet you will die an the insurance comapny bets you won't. Any kind of insurance is that way. Even if you win against the inurance, you still lose. If he bet on the under, he would have some issues. There is bound to be an actuary on this site to give the correct odds on his demise. It is kinda macabre, but that is what these people live for. They have prop bets for far more than they play cards for. He won a weight loss bet a while back by having gastric bypass, so he is willing to go the extra mile.
