My best friend and I tend to argue about things a lot; typically these are very trivial things like whether or not Harvey Keitel was in Pulp Fiction or what year the last Beatles album was released. Luckily, these days, we’re always able to pull out our smartphones and prove to each other who’s right and who’s wrong.
Recently, we’ve started making minor bets over these little arguments that we have; we’ll buy each other something small or hand over a few bucks. In our most recent argument, I bet him that squids had eight tentacles. I wound up buying him a bottle of Mercury Optimax oil as his winnings, because after all, I had lost the bet (squids have ten tentacles).
