I'll be updating this post as further results come in. One announcement though: BR declined to appraise the value of "all of" Millo's Internets, so I'll assign a value of zero. Nonetheless, Millo has bet all of his Internets, so he will have only his winnings for future bets unless someone wants to be generous.

US Presidential election:
Pool 1: Electoral College - 550,218 Internets, 1 fractional Internet claimed by house
  • Obama wins: Valhallen 10; Sir Soulchild 44; DaCrum 40; Love.Dreamer 550,000; Marquis de Soth 25; NeoWarrior7 50; Mir@k 10; Asmodai 10; birdofterror 1; Morpheus 28 (PAYOUT IS 91,703 : 91,696)
  • Romney wins: Sir Soulchild 12; Rough Giraffe 30
  • George Bush wins: Millo 0
Pool 2: Popular vote - 45 Internets, 2 fractional Internets claimed by house
  • Obama wins: Marquis de Soth 15; NeoWarrior7 20; Mir@k 5 (PAYOUT IS 9 : 8)
  • Romney wins: Valhallen 5
Lonely bets: 2,300,000,000,699 Internets claimed by house
  • Most blacks will vote for Obama while most whites will vote for Romney: Sir Soulchild 100,000
  • There will be riots over the results: Sir Soulchild 2,300,000,000,000
  • Obama wins the popular vote but "almost loses" the Electoral College vote: Millo 500
  • The next South Park episode will feature Mitt Romney: Millo 20
  • Romney will win Florida, but only due to GOP voter suppression: Millo 10
  • The winner's fly will be unzipped at his victory speech: narutodesu 69
  • Democrats suspiciously find at least 5,000 ballots in each of 3+ states they were losing at the time: Rough Giraffe 100

US Congressional elections:
Pool 3: House Majority - 230 Internets, 1 fractional Internet claimed by house
  • Democrats take: Sir Soulchild 100; DaCrum 100
  • Republicans keep: Valhallen 20; NeoWarrior7 10 (PAYOUT IS 23 : 3)
Pool 4: Senate Majority - 395 Internets
  • Democrats keep: Valhallen 15; NeoWarrior7 10 (PAYOUT IS 79 : 5)
  • Republicans take: Sir Soulchild 270
  • Split: DaCrum 100

Other lonely bets: 15 Internets claimed by house
  • Proposition 30 passes: DaCrum 15
  • Proposition 37 passes: DaCrum 15

Items confiscated:
  • $1,000,000 from narutodesu
  • 10 Stuffs from Senel
  • 4 hostages from Blood Lord

Name: Internets won / Internets bet +/- gain / loss (numbers in parentheses are tentative)
    Asmodai: 10/10 =
    birdofterror: 1/1 =
    DaCrum: 55/270 -215
    Love.Dreamer: 550,041/550,000 +41
    Marquis de Soth: 41/40 +1
    Millo: 0/530 -530
    Mir@k: 15/15 =
    Morpheus: 28/28 =
    narutodesu: 0/69 -69
    NeoWarrior7: 306/90 +216
    Rough Giraffe: 0/130 -130
    Sir Soulchild: 100,044/2,300,000,100,426 -2,300,000,000,382
    Valhallen: 400/50 +350

    Lost bets / fractional Internets claimed by house: 2,300,000,000,718

Top winners (Internets gained):
  1. Valhallen 350
  2. NeoWarrior7 216
  3. LoveDreamer 41

Top betters (return on investment):
  1. Valhallen 800%
  2. NeoWarrior7 340%
  3. Marquis de Soth 2.5%

I'm still not sure how Soulchild has 2.3 trillion internets. I thought that was more than the entire Snafu economy.

If it makes you feel any better Millo I'll post-op validate your internet values at a fixed 150 with a 3.2% quarter-annual interest stipulation.

Surely at some point on a logarithmic scale holding onto your internets you'll become wealthier.

All paper and coin money is debt issued by the federal government to facilitate the exchange of goods without the need for direct bartering of resources or services.

Debt is a resource. Your bad credit is up to you, bud.

Updates:

Tonight's South Park episode does not feature Romney. He has no speaking role, and he does not appear as a character. A display including Romney's image did appear, but that wasn't Romney himself.

Obama's fly was zipped at his victory speech.

More blacks voted for Obama while more whites voted for Romney.

Proposition 30 passed, but Proposition 37 did not.

Outstanding bets (6 days and a few hours left):

There will be riots.

Romney will win Florida because of disenfranchisement. (Seriously, get your act together, Florida.)

Democrats will find at least three caches of 5000+ ballots.

Check here to see updated totals.

You can call that bet a loss for me. Even if anyone had been planning that sort of thing (a big if; I get that), it wouldn't make a difference, and it would have been a very risky move anyway.

By the way, just thought you guys might want to know...

As a result of Obama being re-elected, and due to the economic instability caused by the idea that Obama will pass a massive tax hike, quite a few businesses are either closing down or laying off employees.

I was optimistic that Romney would have won, since we all knew this would happen if he lost. And if you didn't see this coming, then you simply haven't been paying attention.
